TRAGIK 'Poetic Justice' Escape Music (2007)

With a band name like this you've got to have a good album otherwise reviewers will have a field day making up bad puns to go with their reviews. Luckily this album is a good hard rocker with lots of modern touches, mainly in the synths/programming. The main driving force is Phil Vincent, who has been involved melodic rock scene since the mid-90's and has released nine solo albums to date. Joining him on here are guitarist Damian D'Ercole and drummer Dirk Phillips.

The opener 'Show The World' really hits the spot, a hook filled hard rocker although the next song 'Never Stand Alone' brings the tempo right down. A strange move as maybe another uptempo track would have been better suited here. Lighters aloft though for 'One Of Us', a classic melodic rock ballad.

'Jessica' is a heartfelt ballad that gives REO Speedwagon a run for their money! 'Higher' reminded me of Skin - big riffing hard rockers that stay in your head after one play. Good use of guitar and keys on this one. The only downside of the album is the amount of songs as maybe dropping a couple would make it a much tighter listen.

Good melodic hard rock from a underrated talent and worthy of your attention and ears!
