James Christian – Craving [2018]

Brand new album titled “Craving” by songwriter/singer James Christian and another genuine AOR/melodic rocker from this great artist. One can always expect outstanding melodic vocal performance from James and classic choruses that one wants to play over and over, still there is always the question of just how rocking or heavy is the new album going to be.

Well “Craving” is a substantially guitar oriented AOR album, one has to give to James credit, when he could have added discrete keyboard openings he chose to go all the way with solid guitar riffs and often accompany them with big drum toms. One has to address that tempos have also dropped on “Craving” making mid-tempo and ballads the norm. The album retains all the radio quality that defines James’ entire career, it also takes valiant steps toward a more 80s arena rock sound which is very welcoming addition to the singer’s overall sound.

The line up features apart from James, Cliff Magness who held all instruments and special arrangements from Billy Seidman, Tommy Denander, Jimi Bell, Alessandro Del Vecchio, Pete Alpenborg and Josh Freese. Favorite tracks include “Heaven is a Place in Hell”, “Wild Boys”, “I Won’t Cry” and “Black wasn’t Black”. Overall “Craving” is a very pleasant new album from James Christian who wisely combines the musical characteristics that made him a leader in AOR/melodic hard rock music scene.
