It may have been a six year wait for new material, but once opener, and title track, Ghost Of Graceland gets it’s grip on you, it feels like the first taste of a fine vintage wine you’ve had hidden away for years. While it won’t blow your doors off, it’s still beautifully coated with wall-to-wall hooks that whet the appetite perfectly.
There was a time when the all-important third album was seen as the make or break for a band. If that’s still the case, well then I favour the former with this little doozy.
Rick Springfield. If you know that name it either strikes memories of Dr. Noah Drake on General Hospital or from his big music hit in the early 80’s with “Jessie’s Girl.”

During the recent tour of the UK with his band, Operation Mindcrime, leader singer and former front man with progressive metal icons Queensrÿche took time out to speak to Myglobalmind in Southend upon Sea. Not your typical heavy metal resort location but look up Chinnerys, the venue where the band are performing and you discover a wonderful musical history and a look at the walls confirms that pretty much anyone who is anyone has at some point pushed a flight case through the doors on the road to success.
Another line-up change in and Praying Mantis are back with their 10th studio album ‘Legacy’. Featuring 11 tracks of melodic hard rock the beast is certainly unleashed. Featuring new vocalist Jaycee Cuijpers and drummer Hans In’t Zandtnew dimensions have been added to this album giving it a whole new flavour in comparison to previous projects and rightly so, this is definitely a well-practiced and matured band that know their instruments.
The name Kelly Keeling is pretty known in the Hard Rock/AOR world, yet sadly not as widespread as it should. Since his days fronting Baton Rouge in 1990 he has become synonymous with some of the best singers on the scene, like James Christian, Jeff Scott Soto, Jimi Jamison and countless others. No matter what band or recording his name is attached too you can bet that it is going to be a strong album, at least vocally. I have been a fan for a long time now, and can’t think of an album off the top of my head that he sang on that I wasn’t a pretty big fan of; from Baton Rouge to John Norum to King Kobra- his soulful voice has always entertained me.
it does sound, in certain places, like a pretty natural progression for the band to take, albeit with a different voice up front of course…
Well, once again WALL STREET is a different beast to anything the band has done previously and while some elements of the album work well, overall it just feels as though the band have come too far away from what made them great and have possibly over-reached this time around…
