MOTHER'S ARMY ‘Planet Earth’ (1997)

The same line-up as ‘Fire On The Moon’, except that drumming here is Carmine Appice (Vanilla Fudge/King Cobra/Blue Murder/Guitar Zeus). Opener ‘Circle of Hands’ is a mid-tempo rocker with a Night Ranger-style chorus. ‘Misery Me’ has a catchy chorus, coupled with some tasty guitar playing from Jeff Watson.

‘Planet Earth’ continues the lyrical theme of world environmentalism, with a harmony filled ballad. ‘Seas of Eternity’ has a slow blues ballad feel with subtle guitar touches from Jeff Watson, which are all rounded out with some gentle keyboards. ‘One Common Law’ contains great harmony vocals - a slow burner track and another highlight Joe Lynn Turner’s great vocal talents.

Closing track ‘Mother Earth’ has a smoky bar room blues feel, a real change from the rest of the album. Reminds me of the sort of track Ian Gillan loves to do on his solo work.

Again the entire band are stars of the show, with the album overall lighter in feel than ‘Planet Earth’ and much more blues based in style. A worthy addition to any rock fans’ collection.
