Despite being the frontmen of House Of Lords, James Christian has so far released two solo albums, the 1994 ‘Rude Awakening’ and the 2004 ‘Meet The Man’, he will now rejoice the world of AOR rockers with this opus ‘Lay It All On Me’, his third album. Of course with Mr. Christian you know you’re gonna get some good vocals, and that’s exactly what you get on this album. As a matter of fact I think he has always been a bit underrated as a vocalist and I hope that this will change with this album.
The eleven tracks are all top notch AOR/melodic rock songs written by James, but other songwriters that have contributed to this album were, amongst others, Jeff Kent, who also plays the keyboards on this album, Tommy Denander, Jimi Bell and Chirs Pelcer. If you’re looking into something melodic, that you can play over and over again without it ever getting bored, then you should absolutely give this one a try.
