When you take a look t the line up of Rated X you can´t help but to
get the word Super Group into mind. But I usually get rather
skeptical when it comes to Super Groups. Most of the times you
get disappointed with the result, be course you get a imagine how
it should sound. This has happened on numerous of times.
So I actually was thinking of not doing this review at all. But I
started to listen to the album one day at work just to hear
something other then what I had been listening to the last couple
of weeks. I had no expectations at all so imagine my surprise when
this awesome music started flowing from the speakers.
This is Hard Rock of the 70´s at it´s finest hour. Everything about
the songs and the production is all excellent. This is a must for
fans of Deep Purple and early Rainbow. It´s very old school in a
way that I didn´t think I would get to hear these days. I really love
Joe Lynn Turners voice and this genre really brings out the best in
his voice. Karl Cochran is an excellent guitar player and together
with the rhythm section from Blue Murder´s self titled debut,
Carmine Appice and Tony Franklin, they make magic. And the
songs is just great and I´m not gonna pinpoint any of them here.
I guess You all will find your own favorite track on this one. But
if you want just one song to get your curiosity awakened I
recommend that you listen to “This is who I Am”.
This is the album that should restore the greatness to the 70´s
style Hard Rock.
So don´t just sit there, get out and get your copy !
