Jac Dalton is a new name to me, but not for long it would seem, as the hard rocking Aussie artiste and his band have made my list of bands to keep an eye out for with the release of ‘Powderkeg’.
Although in saying this the initial promise of the first couple of songs is somewhat lost four songs in with a cover of Aerosmith's ‘Sweet Emotion’. Thankfully though that is the only bum note for me on an otherwise good album.
'Just Enough To Believe' gets me back in the saddle again, coming over like an Aussie Jackyl, the vocals of main man Jac (Dalton) are pretty decent and the recording band made up of Graham Greene, Annemieke Heijne, Donna G, Troy Brazier, Jim Awram rock the music out just enough, to get me excited. However they know when subtlety is needed like on ‘One Hard One Land’.
Okay Jac Dalton isn’t going to change the world - but rock music this good needs to be heard and hopefully the band will continue on the righteous path to rock.
