3.0 out of 5 stars Leicester Bangs Review (2010):, 3 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Rock 'n Roll My Soul (Audio CD)
Gary John Barden - Rock `n' Roll My Soul (Inakustik)
Gary John Barden is the vocalist for the Michael Schenker Group and has been for the last 30 years. Though a songwriter in his own right, for his third solo album he's chosen to record a selection of the songs that have inspired and influenced him over the years. So far so good, though it's a fairly obvious collection of well known rock songs, and of course, if you're going to record much loved classics, you've got to bring something a little new to the table.

Unfortunately, there's not much here that thrills or surprises. "Oh Well" gets turned up without doing anything different. "The Long And Winding Road" gets a kitchen sink orchestral makeover, and the penultimate track, a German language version of Barry Ryan's "'Time Only Stops For The Devil" is probably just wrong.

As with all these sorts of things, if you're a fan of Barden and MSG, you'll probably take a lot more from Rock `n' Roll My Soul than the neutral listener. The man's undoubtedly in fine voice and if this sort of thing is your cuppa tea, you'll probably be slurping this down `til Christmas. 5/10.
