Dennis sings with the best of ém. He´s a bit of a mix between Ronnie Atkins (Pretty Maids) and Marcie Free (Unruly Child, Signal) and second track, the sublime “The First Time” indeed sounds like the lovechild of Pretty Maids and Unruly Child.

I enjoy it all the way, but can’t really find any new classics to shake my foundations. It’s just all right, basic nice rock music without any big flaws. Which of course isn’t bad at all, really, just not that extraordinary.
In some way I felt Anette was a bit misplaced in Nightwish, she might not have been given the chance either but here I feel that she felt she had a chance for a revenge and returned with a very convincing performance.
Fallen passes through and sounds good and decent, but then it fades away and I can’t remember that much about it at all. After four spins, there are no songs I can hum along to and few titles I recognize when I take a look at the song list. I think that says quite a lot.
Robin McAuley (McAuley Schenker Group), guitarist Reb Beach (Winger, Whitesnake), bassist Jeff Pilson (Foreigner, The End Machine, ex-Dokken), and drummer Matt Starr (Ace Frehley, Mr. Big) is a quartet capable of making music.
They call themselves Revolution Saints and it’s now time for the third album from this trio, which is good, sometimes really good.
I am very happy when my fears of a complete disaster or close to it is thrown out of the window. The album is like an old cold slow starting car.
To me, the production holds the songs back, and the result is nothing more than just okay. But still, okay is okay, and so I think this album is all right, even though I had hoped for a little more.
I am totally floored from now on. You would NOT want to miss this if melodic rock is your cup of morning coffee.
Laying on the floor grasping for some kind of “there must be something bad about this record” feeling I give up totally. If you are into metal as described above, it is a must to buy this one.
Overall, this is quite a standard album in a long line of AOR albums released from label Frontiers and nothing really sticks out about it. But still, I quite like it. The songs are good enough and the overall vibe is nice.
Örnsköldsvik is the hometown of swedish hockey legend Peter Forsberg and it’s also home for the band...
Some people say that bands should try to make new stuff, break walls and take music forward. And there might be some truth to that. But also, it sure is nice with dependable bands who always give you what you want too.
“Get Up” is another track with a small barely noticeable homage to the early Whitesnake. Here you can if you listen well hear “Slow an easy” kind of guitars, it moves on to a cocky little song that is hard to sit still to.
A piano and an acoustic guitar kicks off the 7 minute plus opener “Burn Love Burn”. I haven´t heard the band before so it’s an open book in the land of melodic rock for me. However, they haven´t been active for the last ten years so I think I am forgiven.
There might not be that many new classics such as “Hot Cherie” or “Dr. Love” on this one, but there are no weak songs to be seen either.
