The backing vox JSS did for Don on the 'Lightning Strikes Again' record were fantastic.If you listen to that record it almost sounds like a young Don Dokken backing himself up on the songs.This cat should've got the Journey' gig in my book.

New video for "Love Is The Revolution'.

From Frontiers:

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to present "Complicated", the eighth official studio album from veteran hard rock vocalist Jeff Scott Soto. "Complicated" will be released on May 6, 2022 on CD, Color LP, and Digital formats. 

As with his previous studio album of all new material, “Wide Awake (In My Dreamland)", Soto teamed up with producer and songwriter Alessandro Del Vecchio (Hardline, Revolution Saints, Edge Of Forever) to craft "Complicated". Arguably the best JSS album since Damage Control, "Complicated" has a Talisman and even a W.E.T. (Jeff's band with members of Eclipse and Work Of Art) feel to it, but all feels wholly Jeff Scott Soto at the end of the day. 

Jeff Scott Soto has more than 60 albums under his belt along with numerous collaborations and recordings. He has established himself as a consummate professional who manages to expertly deliver with his vocal performances across multiple musical genres, from metal to hard rock to progressive rock and even funk. His career spans nearly thirty years, beginning as the vocalist for guitar virtuoso Yngwie Malmsteen before coming the frontman for bands such as Talisman, Soul SirkUS, Sons of Apollo (featuring Billy Sheehan, Mike Portnoy, Derek Sherinian and Bumblefoot), as well as an ongoing membership in Trans-Siberian Orchestra and a stint as the lead singer for the legendary classic rock band Journey.

In 1994, Soto released his first solo album, ‘Love Parade’, followed years later by the acclaimed 'Prism' (2002), then 'Lost In The Translation' (2005), 'Beautiful Mess' (2009), “Damage Control” (2012), “Retribution” (2017), "Wide Awake (In My Dreamland)" (2020), and "The Duets Collection, Vol. 1" (2021).  Soto is an extraordinary performer and amazing vocalist. He delivers on hard rocking tracks with incredible energy and easily transitions to a powerful performance on epic ballads.

1. Last To Know

2. Disbelieving

3. Home Again

4. Love Is The Revolution

The album is fine... sounds great... but all the songs blur together after a while. So formulaic.

So it's an Alessandro Del Vecchio album.

Solid enough album with about 5 keepers. But yeah, definitely not going to set anyone's world alight, that's for sure.

Frontiers are the Stock,Aitken, Waterman of the rock world, everything sounds the same.

Ouch but I'm starting to think that is true of about 70% of their stuff. The bands they sign who already exist though, and write their own stuff, these are better.

Agree, if they sign an existing band and let them continue to write their own stuff that's great, but once ADV and the whole Frontiers cookie cutter production team get involved then it's Stock,Aitken,Waterman time...

    • My CD arrived. Gotta say it is one of the cheapest, shittiest packaging of a cd I have seen. It is just a double panel with a disk (no tray). No booklet, no lyrics, very little info. printed. Terrible artwork (as you can see above). Glad I only paid $17 as it isn't worth more than that presentation wise. Musically I have only listened once so far so will reserve judgement until then. Note - Jack Jones only played on one track, the lead single. But he is touring with the band.

    • Brilliant tune... reminds me of prime MSG, to be honest. Maybe a slight 'Anytime' vibe? But a magnificent song.  But the song I've had in my head all week is '100 thousand years.' Man I love that one. I rated this album fairly earlier in the year, but with a bit of a jumbled year of listening I haven't concentrated too much on albums this year. Listening to everything now, and I have to say that this album stood out as one I maybe did not give it's due credit. Those two songs are excellent, and I also like 'Get Away' and 'Crash & Burn' of the rest. Some nice gear on here. 
    • Exactly. Same goes for Sunstorm.
    • They're solid and consistent... just missing a bit of something to make them stand out for me, personally. The album is solid, like their other stuff. 
    • ADV wrote most of the debut. but that was before he burned himself out writing another 4000 songs of course the main problem is it isn't Revolution Saints. If you still want to showcase DC pick some more band members and call it something else but don't pretend its Rev Saints anymore. 
    • I don't have as much disdain for Del Vecchio as some do, but I can't help but feel like this sounds very... generic in an ADV kind of way? It's not that it's a bad song by any means, it's just that I've only listened to it once, but it feels like I've heard it about 300 times because it sounds like so many other songs Del Vecchio has produced. Secondly, since they've outright admitted that Revolution Saints was meant as a vehicle to showcase Castronovo, without Jack Blades and Doug Aldrich, I'm a little puzzled as to why they didn't just make a Deen Castronovo solo record instead. Surely at this point, anyone familiar with Frontiers, melodic rock music and especially Revolution Saints knows who he is.
