Review Type: 

Despite having some well known musicians in their ranks, this new project started by unknown guitarist Jeremy Brunner, and having enlisted the aid of Andy Johns for the production, I’m afraid this album is rather disappointing.

The well known musicians are, to start with, James Lorenzo from White Lion  on bass guitar, Keith St. John from Montrose handles the vocals, and Fred Fischer from Midline on drums. While at first I had the impression I was listening to one of those 80ies big arena bands, my high hopes soon faded away.  Although the songs sound good, they lack a big balls execution to reach the level of those former days big arena bands. Also they could have done with some more up-tempo songs. Nice try guys, but you’ll have to do better than this if you wanna make it.

70/100
