MASS Crack Of Dawn Escape Music (2007)


Blimey here's a blast from the past! US hard rock band who released a couple of good albums back in the 80's. Amazingly they have been carrying on since although mainly touring and releasing albums in their native US.

This is a damn fine hard rock album, that has a big dose of the classic 80's hard rock sound plus some neat modern touches. I defy any rock fan not to love 'It's You' - a great riff, big chorus and emotive vocals from Louis D'Augusta.

Doesn't get much better than this! The title track is pure 80's hard rock, similar to say Dokken or Sugarcreek.

Ballads? Try 'Someday' that builds nicely to an epic chorus and the vocals/guitars are nice and clean in the mix. 'Leaving You' starts off acoustically before kicking in big time by the song's end. 'Who Am I' shows the band can bring their songs up to date being a very modern rocker in the style of Hinder or Buckcherry.

A couple of songs sound a tad to0 generic like 'Empty Soul' and 'Money Brain', but overall this is a damn fine album. Crank it up! One for hard rockers everywhere.
