Review Type: 

This band, or is it just a project, consists of some very well known musicians.  On vocals we have none other than Tommy La Verdi (21 Guns), Josh Ramos (The Storm, Hardline) on guitars and Michael Shotton (Von Groove, Airtime) on drums.  The intention of this project was I guess to resurrect the career of Tommy La Verdi, whom we’d not heard of in a long time.  There’s also fair contribution of Alessadro Del Vecchio (Hardline), as he has been playing keyboards, Hammond organ and did some backing vocals as well.

The music these guys bring is more AOR oriented, however some songs pack a bit more punch, and could be described as influenced or sounding like 80ies Triumph.  There’s also a good dose of Journey and The Storm packed into these songs.

To sum it up : it is a decent album, that never gets boring.
