PHIL VINCENT White Noise (2008)

Phil Vincent

The tenth solo release by this very talented artist and unlike his previous albums he has dispensed with any ballads. Also bar guitar solos he plays all the instruments himself.

His last release was under the banner of Circular Logik, which mixed classy melodic rock and some pop rock moments and when I reviewed it earlier this year I thought this was his heaviest work to date.

Well that's all changed now with this little beauty and boy are the guitars set to 'riff'.

There are some top notch melodic hard rockers on here like 'This Time' and 'How Long', both which bring to mind the finer moments of Pink Cream 69 and Ten. It's amazing to think all the harmonies are handled by Phil himself - 'How Long' just blows the listener away!

Another highlight throughout the album are the keys from the 80's synths on 'Don't Get Me Wrong' through to the extended keys intro on 'Fall To Pieces'.

Quite why Phil Vincent doesn't get the success and name checks he deserves is a mystery but hopefully this album will go some more way to getting his excellent music out there.

If your aural pleasures are bands like Dokken, Pink Cream 69, Pretty Maids and Lillian Axe grab this pronto. Definitely an album to keep coming back to and his best to date.
