GEORGE LYNCH Kill All Control earMUSIC (2011)

George Lynch

A couple of years back there were rumours of a possible Dokken reunion, as in the original classic line-up. Nothing has happened since, and as regards George Lynch we are left with following the post-Dokken threads with Lynch Mob and a solo career.

This latest 'solo' offering follows the more bombastic 'Orchestral Mayhem' released in 2010 (an album of 'classical' covers) and is actually more of a band album akin to Lynch's work in Lynch Mob.

Conceived as a follow up to the Souls Of We debut in 2008 'Let The Truth Be Known', this is another collaboration with London Le Grand (Brides Of Destruction) but using different vocalists including Keith St John (Montrose, Burning Rain).

In overall vibe, there's an alt-rock post Seattle feel to several tracks placing it in Audioslave territory, but it's perhaps closer in spirit to the likes of Velvet Revolver. Classic American hard rock always lifted by Lynch's guitar shapes.

Lynch allows himself one nod to his glory days, and a rare bit of self-indulgence (on this album at any rate), with the instrumental 'Son Of Scary'.

An album that's highly accessible and does repay repeated visits. There's obvious radio potential (if that still exists now) with tracks like 'Fly On The Wall' and 'Resurrect Your Soul' but overall there's a great mix of memorable songs and always tasteful, and tasty, guitaring.
