Starting off with Jay Pepper’s version of the Welsh National Anthem, it finally hits us that the Welsh Glam Rockers are back and doing it for their country. ‘Lost Reelz’ is an album filled with the delights of a collection of songs that have never before been available to the public. Covering years of material including demos and mixes this is a true album of rarities that any Tigertailz fan will certainly enjoy.
STATE OF ROCK are a new band featuring three members of melodic rockers FRONTLINE with the ever busy front man of SHY, T.N.T and bunch of other stuff TONY MILLS. Unlike a lot of other collaboration efforts, this actually does sound like the sum of it’s parts. Just as the band’s promo material states “75% FRONTLINE and 25% SHY = STATE OF ROCK.”
The title track has some inspired high rising guitar lead reminds me in places of some House of Lords material, which doesn’t surprise me sine James was had an integral part on Robin’s new record, the opening keyboards are somewhat memorable also.He also lends his power vocals in the chorus on the potent “All The Rivers” with a chunky AOR groove.
