Neal Schon - 'The Calling' (Frontiers Records) Print E-mail

Tuesday, 16 October 2012 04:00
Neal-Schon-Calling-176pxYou probably know him best as the guitarist and mainstay of American AOR giants Journey, but behind the super slick stadium rock anthems and sugar sweet balladry of that band still lies a six stringer who likes to noodle away with the best of them, and let's not forget Neal was also once in Santana.  Russ P gets the calling (from URHQ) to review this the latest solo album from the guitar maestro, to see if it really is a record raised on radio or simply one that lasts for an infinity.

Lynyrd-Skynyrd-Dyin-Breed-176pxInitially released last month as one of those fanpack magazine/CD type things that seem to be all the rage right now, 'Last Of A Dyin' Breed' the latest album by Southern rock legends Lynyrd Skynyrd appeared to an easy target for ridicule from the mainstream rock press at the time of its release, but being something of a fanboy Russ P asked us if he could give you his take and a new perspective on an album that he says proves there is life in the old dogs yet.

DownivWith the album format declared dead and buried in the eyes of veteran New Orleans sludgemasters Down, the first in a planned series of four EPs by the band has Ross Welford wondering if there might not be some truth in that statement especially when the songs are as brutally heavy as the likes of 'Levitation' and 'Open Coffins'.  To find out if less really is more click that link.

Night_Ranger_-_24_Strings_ArtworkBack when MTV Unplugged was all the rage and every flannel shirted scruffy oik under the sun was flinging themselves at an acoustic guitar, the genre of AOR was pretty much dead in the water.  Well now two decades later it's the turn of that genre to get stripped back to the basics as Nightranger turn their hands to reinventing themselves via the very same format. Mark Ashby reviews '24 Strings And A Drummer: Live And Acoustic' to find out what AOR without the parp really does sound like.

kissmonsterLike a movie that allows no reviews before release, the press embargo surrounding 'Monster', the new album from KISS, hinted at one thing - this record was gonna suck. Imagine the surprise at URHQ then when the album turned out to be far from the monsturd we anticipated and actually contained a spattering of good songs. Uber Rock's Gaz E has kept his thoughts to himself until release day, as requested, even if everybody else on the planet could find a trusty illegal download of this 'Monster' prior to its release, today! Link it up and read about how this new KISS album floors amid the flaws.....
