KENNY McGEE ‘Kenny McGee’ (Metal Mayhem, 2002)

Solo release from the Juliett vocalist. Other musicians include Tommy Vincent (guitar), Billy Weber (guitar), Dean Domizio (drums) and Christian Hamlett (bass). Obviously this is a far cry from the party rock anthems of Juliett, with a modern day feel on much of the album. ‘Don’t Ya Worry’ has a gorgeous hook filled chorus contained in a pop rock tune. The slower ‘Can’t Say Goodbye’ reminds me of REO Speedwagon immense ballads! Harking back to the 80’s sound, ‘Christine’ will appeal to Dokken and Ratt fans, with a very tasty bass line running through the song. Another good ballad comes in the shape of ‘It Ain’t Over’, which builds from a slow acoustic guitar beginning into a climatic ending of harmony vocals and guitar soloing.

Other highlights include ‘Not About Love’ with it’s crunching guitar riff and again sounding like prime time 80’s metal. Then there is the Bon Jovi like ballad ‘Best of Me’, complete with a subdued slide guitar solo – nice. The only under par track is ‘She’s All Talk’ which is the sort of song that has been overdone by many rock bands, right down to the dirty talk during the song!

Highly recommended release that you will grow to like the more you listen to it. Kenny McGee has a strong rock vocal that works well on the rockers and the ballads. Hopefully there will be more soon from this underrated vocalist.

***** Out of this world | **** Pretty damn fine |
*** OK, approach with caution unless you are a fan |
** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
