L.A. melodic rockers Talon, born from the ashes of ‘VOXEN’, stick their claws straight into the flesh of the melodic rock niche with their latest, and arguably strongest, release Fourplay. Buoyed by the recent return of original vocalist Michael O’Mara, founding member John Parker claims that that the band have undoubtedly “come full circle”.
So, 27 years have passed since the last China Sky album in 1988. A lot has changed in that time: hipsters have regrettably come into existence, the confusingly named MTV has inexplicably ceased playing music videos and Ozzy has tried his hand at acting. Also, I was conceived and am now writing this very review.
27 years is a very long time in rock and roll.
