This is the best Hard Rock album I've heard in a long, long time...It's back to the days of great song writing and virtuoso playing combined with Classic Rock vocals and exciting performances!! If like me you have become a little jaded with some of the recent releases of the "famous" Hard Rock bands, buy this!! It will definitely rekindle your faith in, and re-enforce your dedication to this wonderful form of music!!
I love that Statetrooper album The Calling. I've been playing it a lot, it has really grown on me. Gary Barden sounds quite Coverdalesque. And there are some really great songs/numbers on that album. There are influences of the MK111 Deep Purple, Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy, Van Halen and even Judas Priest. The guitar sounds like twin lead on some of the tracks. It is a strong album. And I would recommend it to any fan of true british heavy/hard rock.
