LYNCH MOB Smoke And Mirrors Frontiers (2009)

Lynch Mob

Long time fans of George Lynch, and indeed his band Lynch Mob, will no doubt be excited at the good news that new album 'Smoke and Mirrors' finds Lynch reunited with original Lynch Mob vocalist Oni Logan for the first time since the early '90's.

Logan's vocals have a bluesy edge to them which works well over Lynch's style of guitar playing, and they are joined on the album by bassist Marco Mendoza (Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy) and drummer Scot Coogan (Brides of Destruction, Ace Frehley), - a solid rhythm section that helps to recreate the classic Lynch Mob sound.

'Smoke and Mirrors' sounds like the natural successor to 1990's 'Wicked Sensation' album, and from opening track '21st Century Man' the band are clearly delivering the message that they are back.

Heavier tracks such as 'Time Keepers' and ' Let The Music Be Your Master' sit comfortably alongside the rest of the album. 'Lucky Man' is a big sounding number that, back in the day, would have been on MTV's heavy rotation list.

Other highlights include 'Where Do You Sleep At Night?', 'Madly Backwards', 'We Will Remain' and 'Before I Close My Eyes'.

To be fair, there is not a bad song on the album, which is a welcome return to form and should do well for the band.
