GLENN HUGHES First Underground Nuclear Kitchen
Frontiers (2008)

Glenn Hughes

This album is most probably his funkiest one since 'Play Me Out', there is still some rock in here but Hughes has really tapped into his own personal funk and soul vibe.

It really comes through the music how much Hughes is enjoying himself and yes those who hanker after the Voice Of Rock will be disappointed but this is the sound of an artist at his peak and doing what he loves.

'Love Communion' would make an excellent single - very funky and the opener 'Crave' allows the album to hit a groove early on.

'Satellite' is another highlight and like the whole album just shows how good Hughes is vocally and also on the bass, he even does a bass solo!

There is some rock though in 'Too Late To Save The World' which has a classic 70's sound, almost Led Zeppelin-like. Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers is again on hand to add his distinctive drum sound and long time guitarist JJ Marsh pops up on a couple of tunes - the more rock orientated ones. Luis Maldonado handles most of the other guitar on the album.

A true vocal legend, he has never sounded better and Glenn Hughes really has found his groove. First and foremost, fans of his voice will love this album but if you hanker after his hard rock days they you will be disappointed.
