When the guitar chimes in and the kick reverberates in your ears you know you’re hearing sweet, sweet rock and roll music. “Rock and Roll” kicks off with Jordan Cutajar’s call to arm: “Let’s rock and roll!!” He’s got that Brian Johnson quality to his voice, and immediately lends credence to their brand of hard rock. The production is clear as crystal, and delivers a satisfying punch. I was immediately eager to hear more.

I love how Benjamin Mann rides the high hat in the verses on “In Good Hands”. The rhythm guitar, punctuated with the tick-tick-tick of tightly picked strings makes for a dynamic groove, and when the solo pops out it is tastefully executed. Andy La Morte, you have a new fan! The overall impression is that these musicians are like the master craftsman who distils the best broth from hand-picked ingredients. Continue reading »
