MILAN POLAK Straight Lion Music (2007)

Milan Polak

After two instrumental albums (both well worth a listen) Milan Polak has now decided to do his first vocal album and what a good one it is too! He has roped in a good rhythm section as well in former Ark/Malmsteen pair Randy Coven (bass) and John Maxaluso (drums) with some bass parts played by Fabio Trentini.

Musically it is a nice mix of styles from the catchy hard rock of 'Difference' and 'Psychobitch', the latter containing a cracking chorus. There are some good acoustic based numbers of which 'Hero' stands out, you could easily see this popping up in a film soundtrack at some point. The title track is a statement of intent of Milan Polak's views backed by some aggressive playing. Final highlight is the blues rock closer 'The Glowing Of A Cigarette', another track with some great guitar on it.

A big gamble to do an all vocal album and Milan Polak pulls it off with enough variation to keep the listener entertained.
