Laney's Legion released two singles prior to the album release.
First single was "Taste of your tongue" that is a rather heavy rock
song, very much in the likes of Chris previous band Zan Clan.
A straight up heavy rock song with a lot of attitude
Second single is "Poptastic is a buffé in 80's metal. The band has
successfully captured that feeling you had in your room listening to
all your favorite music. How it made you feel but never could
describe to anyone.
So the expectation were very high when I got the promo in my in box
And after the first spin I a sure you that I wasn't disappointed. This a
lbum is a masterpiece! It got it all,the up-tempo songs , the mid-temp
songs and the ballads. The song writing is all in such high quality
that you won't get tired of them even after 20-30 spins.
Not only has Chris managed to create a killer album, but also he has
put together a great band to match the songs. Or what do you think
of this line-up ?
Chris Laney - lead vocals and guitar
Rob Marcello - lead guitar and vocals
Mats Vassfjord - bass and vocals
Patrik Jansson - drums and vocals
The album starts of with a gunshot and it´s just like a starter for the
entire album. I was rather surprised the first time I heard it, as the
two singles are NR 2 and 3 and I´m thinking to myself, that´s a
rather bold move. But Then I understand that it makes no difference
as all songs are great and if I have to rick out some gems from this
album it got to be the two singles and then“Let´s Get It On”, “Hollow” and “Legion”.
But what impresses me the most is the feeling the album brings
when you listen to it. As previous mentioned it takes you back to
your teenage years, if you like me grew up in the 80´s.
Most of it is described in the song “Poptastic”, it´s party rock n roll
and every night is Saturday night. It´s in our hearts and in our souls.
And last of the line that really brings it all together “ when we drink
together we wanna feel like seventeen “ this is exactly what this
album is all about, it´s a journey throughout our upbringing in the
name of rock n roll”.
I just love when I come a cross an album that makes me feel this way.
So I say -
Hats of to Chris Laney and his Legion !
