LIPS TURN BLUE – Lips Turn Blue (2022)

MAY 6, 2022



Upstate NY band LIPS TURN BLUE releases its debut album “Lips Turn Blue“, the last work of late Canadian singer Phil Naro. Naro was the frontman for Peter Criss Band for many years, but also melodic hard bands like D Drive, 24K, Talas, and worked with many Canadian acts like Lee Aaron.

Also in the band and long time Naro partner guitarist Don Mancuso will continue with LIPS TURN BLUE enlisting a new vocalist, but this debut deserved to be released with Naro’s voice as it was written and recorded by him, completed before passing away in May 2021 from cancer.

And glad they did it; this is classic melodic hard rock with an early Nineties feel, melodic, emotional, with a clean bright production and ver, very good songs. Legend Lou Gramm duets on one song with Naro.

Didn't know about this one. 

I've always liked Phil Naro.

Thanks for the heads up, even though those two tracks don't blow me away, I'll check out the album.

It's not too bad. Not great but decent.

    • urgh both of those songs are a cheese fest. Hard pass 
    • 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.
