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.

Tracklist:

1. Last To Know

2. Disbelieving

3. Home Again

4. Love Is The Revolution

It's borderline insanity at this point.

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...
