Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 15 November 2012
First, the good news - this will probably be the last studio album from BCC!
Now the bad news (if you've parted with your cash but not yet received this album) -this is not a great album by any stretch of the imagination. IMHO it is OK and that's about it, bearing in mind who makes up the four component parts of this band - it draws (I almost said "rips off") too heavily on Zeppelin and, as I have said before, if I wanted to listen to Zeppelin, then I would far, far rather put a Zeppelin album into my player.
Bonamassa is outside of his comfort zone (again) for a large part of this assembly of tunes and Sherinian (again) buried lowdown in the mix. Bonham kicks things along nicely, but I think more than anything, it is the screeching vocals of Glenn Hughes that really irk, seemingly unable to add much pitch and variation into his vocals - and indeed, maybe it is because he wrote much of what is here, it is all too samey!
That all said, "The Circle" is a pretty good track, standing head and shoulders above the rest (even though Glenn does resort to a lot of shrieking at the very extreme end of his capabilities - really, a few shrieks would be fine...but there is a limit to tolerance).
Doubtless, this will be praised to the rafters - but really, if you were around in the heyday of rock, you'll know that this is not as good as it could have been.
And a bonus DVD doesn't really make up for anything either.
Disappointed - I most certainly am!
