Robin Beck – The Great Escape

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.

Giuffria – Giuffria (Retro Review)

Some recent news on the band came down by former guitarist Craig Goldy on a radio metal show in 2010 stating talks about a reunion we’re in the works, so we may get to hear yet another reunion in the horizon.

John Waite – Rough & Tumble

On a brighter note despite the fact that “Mr Wonderful” tame lyrics didn’t grab my attention, the music here is actually more moving then on some of the other tracks.Even though a slower grinding pace pushes “Love’s Goin’ Out Of Style” actually works pretty good as well, both guitar tune and the rhythm lead go hand in hand like bread and butter.
