One Man’s Trash – History [2011]

Jimi Jamison is back for the second time in 2011 with a brand new debut album by his German-based rock outfit “One man’s trash”. A mere few months past the released of “Kimball-Jamison”, Jimi Jamison and partner guitarist Fred Zahl are just in time to deliver one final AOR highlight in 2011, and “History” is it.

Although a German-based AOR project, “One man’s trash” has little in common with the thickly produced melodic hard rock crafted in that part of Europe. Instead `History’ comes very close to the sound of Jamison’s latest solo releases “Crossroads” and “Extra Moments”. Specifically, we are looking at guitar-driven, but not over produced, rock with very natural-sounding rhythm section and complementary keyboards. Perhaps some of the guitar riffs are more rock’n’roll/country sounding than fans of Jamison would expect, without of course disrupting the AOR essence of “History”.

It is important to note that in contrast to Jimi’s latest works (“Crossroads”, “Extra Moments” and “Kimball-Jamison”) where the singer’s songwriting input was minimal, “One Man’s Trash” comes out as a team effort since Jamison has co-written all songs on “History” with Zahl. Songs like “The restless kind”, “Real thing”, Meadowland”, “Losing my mind” and the autobiographical title track are easily as good as Jamison’s previous solo works. I suppose it goes without saying that if you are a fan of Jamison’s solo releases you should definitely get “One Man’s Trash” debut album “History”. It may seem to come out of nowhere but it is the same great sound one has come to expect from the iconic singer.
