5.0 out of 5 stars Burning Rain a band that should be bigger!!, 17 May 2013
This review is from: Epic Obsession (MP3 Download)
13 Years After "Pleasure To Burn", and BURNING RAIN are finally back in action. The Band, which has been mostly known by their amazing guitar player Doug Aldrich (DIO, WHITESNAKE, LION), is a kind of a supergroup that has been growing up under our noses and now it's back with an awesome cutting edge Hard Rock Album.

The album is a mix of LED ZEPPELIN, WHITESNAKE, Sleaze / Hard Rock and 80' like acoustic power ballads, the comfort zone of the foursome crew, and it sounds amazing. The rhythm section of Sean Mcnabb and Mat Starr is tight as you can listen straight from the opening tune "Sweet Little Baby", an up-tempo Rock N' Roll AC/DC, LED ZEPPELIN. Keith St. John's vocals are a mix of Coverdale and Plant but with an American touch, and Aldrich is ripping the hell of his Les Paul with riffs and solos that sound like a mix of 70s and 80's Hard Rock on steroids.

"Heaven Gets Me By" is the 4th Track and the first acoustic one that sounds a lot like new WHITESNAKE acoustic stuff (same guitar Player) but again very American. The whole vibe of the album is very strip club in sunset street and that's exactly what they meant and it sounds great, just a flashback to the awesome Hard Rock of the 80'. "Pray Out Loud", another one with a ZEPPELIN vibe is another must listen on the record and of course the single "Ride The Monkey".

In conclusion St. John is the kind of American singer that is just not made for today's scene, and that is a good thing. Aldrich Has the same thing like Slash, Zakk Wylde , Jimmy Page and John Sykes that no matter what band he's in you just immediately know it's him and his acoustic playing is over the top also. This is a must For Hard Rock Fans, ZEPPELIN, WHITESNAKE, awesome singing and guitars.

Thanks for the review. I won't be buying it now because, as you say, it is full of 80's power ballads. in my opinion the 80's in any genre was the worst era, especially for rock music. Thanks again!
