Symphony X vocalist Russell Allen has produced a fine solo album that pays homage to some of his influences like Dio, Sabbath et al

There is certainly a mix of musical styles on here from the Monster Magnet meets Sabbath doom riffing of ‘Blackout’ and ‘Voodoo Hand’ through to the ballad ‘The Distance’ (featuring some great distorted guitar). I just love the groove laden ‘Saucy Jack’ that tips a hat to Whitesnake, whilst the title track features Sratovarius keyboards player Jens Johansson and again it’s a Whitesnake/Dio like rocker - great stuff.

Not a prog metal release as some Symphony X fans would doubtless expect but instead a damn fine classic rock album, the like of which we sadly get so few of nowadays. A great way to get his undoubted vocal talents recognized by a whole new audience.


Review by Jason Ritchie

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