The traditional noggin nodding familiar beat and riffs of the 80’s on songs like Make Your Mark, Heart of Fire are timeless.
Lynch Mob are happy to continue grasping the mantle of traditional feel-good rock, whilst moving with the times
I will say this, after disliking them from the jump and going back and giving them another chance, this album is a vast improvement with better songs, a little more accessible and personally, Pinnick could sing the phone book and I’d give it a chance
Sonically Scatterbrain was step up from the last one.
Jeff Pilson – Dokken Ended on a Horrible Note, Now is the Time to Make it Right!
Ending on a pulsating note with title track Only to Rise, this song bears all the hallmarks of a relentless jam. Lynchs’ no frills riff work and Tichys’ animalistic skin battering are monstrous. It would be a crying shame if this project was a one off. Sweet and Lynch clearly have a smokin’ hot compatibility. Their energy and enthusiasm are all over this wonderful album.
And I think that that is kind of the question for at this point is like, “What works best, and is there one way, or multiple ways that could work best, depending on the conditions and the components of this group?” So in Dokken’s case, which is one of the few experiences I’ve had as a model, there was the natural hierarchy, just sort of the way that things work actually.
And there was a more closed hierarchy, which people tend to skew the natural hierarchy to favour themselves against the will of nature so to speak here [chuckles]. So I wonder about that. I think if you take that example as a lesson and you extrapolate that example to a larger world, to other arenas, positions, man versus nature, man versus man, and all this sort of stuff; there’s something you can learn about it and hopefully find a better way to do things. So in my case, I’ve had.. I’d been thinking about this one for a long time. And I’ve always been of the opinion that level playing field is the fairest thing. We have to throw it all into a petri-dish and then allow people to grow according to their own potential and will, right? Without taking anything from anyone else.
Is nice to hear new material from Mr Scary as he still proves he got what it takes to play the fret, but we all knew this already. Bring on the new material and hope this time around they keep the momentum going strong from the last Lynch Mob. The new Mob will include Oni Logan, Mick Brown, and Jeff Pilson and it will be called “I Am Weapon”.
