Derek Davis review

 

It's not the Babylon A.D. of old, instead hewing a little closer to the sound of "American Blitzkrieg." Since I was one of the few people that liked that album, I also happened to like this one, but I won't be surprised if there is disagreement with my review. And this time from more than just Tim... ;)

Complete opposite opinion of this one. Granted I'm just going from the samples on CDBaby but I didn't like a single thing I heard aside from two tracks. The first being "Troubadour", which I thought was easily the best of the bunch. The other song I liked (of course) was the rehash of "Desperate" (probably because I was hoping beyond hope the whole album would sound like that). The rest was very forgettable, especially the industrial tinged tracks. I will say this, if Joe Leste ever leaves Bang Tango the band should give Derek a call because he sounds just like him throughout most of the album.

I definitely get that. This is one of those albums I would not necessarily "defend" my position, because I completely understand why some people would not like this release. There's just something about it that clicks with me, hence the favorable review. I AM totally shocked, however, to hear you praise "Troubadour," which I think is simply atrocious. But yeah, this is one of those albums that I like but I totally undestand why many people won't.

    • Is it just my headphones, or does this mix sound like it's coming from the inside of a can of sardines?

    • 'History's Hands' out November 22nd. Press release: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of Enemy Eyes, a new melodic metal band fronted by vocalist Johnny Gioeli (Hardline, Axel Rudi Pell, Crush 40). Johnny is currently putting the finishing touches on Enemy Eyes' debut album, which will be released this fall. In the meantime, the band is pleased to present their debut single, 'Here We Are' for your listening pleasure. Of note, this will be Gioeli's 100th official release as a recording artist after decades of multi-platinum, gold, and critically acclaimed albums. A true landmark recording in his discography and also the beginning of a new chapter.  Johnny Gioeli first came to prominence with Hardline, a melodic hard rock band that he formed with his brother Joey and which famously featured Journey guitarist Neal Schon on the band's debut album, "Double Eclipse". Johnny has continued to front Hardline since the release of their debut album in 1992, including their most recent release, 2021's "Heart, Mind And Soul". In addition to Hardline, Johnny has been fronting both German guitarist Axel Rudi Pell's solo band and Japanese-American band Crush 40 since 1998. He also released his first solo album, "One Voice" in 2018.  Stay up to date with Enemy Eyes news by following the band's social media as well as Gioeli's. More to come, including touring in 2023!  Lineup: Johnny Gioeli - Vocals Marcos Rodrigues - Guitar Alessandro Del Vecchio - Bass, Keyboards Fabio Alessandrini - Drums   facebook
