me owld marra Phil Vincent makes a return to these ears,
teaming up with Rock Icon Paul Sabu to form a new outfit
Cranston, and on this self-titled debut album, make no
mistake, it'll blow your socks off better than those hard
mints off that TV advert! To say both stars have 'been
round the block' could be taken as an insult, but none is
meant in that quote, in fact, it is supposed to mean that
they both have kept on going, even if things didn't quite
work out at times, keeping themselves busy no matter
what. So it's great to see the two come together
now, and judging by the opening Rock groover 'Long, Long
Way To Go', they haven't lost any of their passion when it
comes to 'giving it welly'!
shows why he's thought of as such a good singer by some as
he belts out his lyrics to the melodic 'hey, hey'd'
monster 'Fallen', Sabu thrashing out the licks like the
World will end soon, and again the drums getting a right
old hammering by B.F., all taken onto the next crushing
track, with guest cowbell (I poop you not!). Very
80's sounding, like Motley/WASP/M.S.G. being thrown into
the pot, and out comes 'Queen Of The Pain', with no let up
until the final squawk of the keys disappears!
