Profile This band gets applauded for their brand of Rainbow / Whitesnake classic hard rock sound, and although they do have the knack, I don’t really see myself returning to this to much. I hear a cross of the two above outfits with some Heartland (U.K.) added to the mix, enjoyable but not essential. Kelly Keeling from Baton Rouge takes on the vocals for this album and does a great work. He still has an amazing voice and the song Prisoner is a great example. Music is also great with an excellent delivery from Stuart Smith (guitars), Richie Onori (drums) and Arlen Schierbaum (keyboards). Guest musicians include Howard Leese (Heart), David Paich (Toto) and Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi). One of a superb album and a distinct move forward. Because of all the “Guest” musician/singers on the previous record, it was a test for the band to see how they would stand alone on this one, and they haven’t disappointed! The band have worked extremely hard on this CD and it very clearly shows through. A must have CD for any classic rock fan!
