Let me start off by saying
SEXINESS CAN GET YOU EVERYTHING!!!!
and VK LYNNE is DEFINATELY SEXY!
OK with that out of my system, let's get onto the review!
The first track BLACK HALO starts off like some old clint eastwood film but then punches you right in the jugular with some unexpected HEAVY ASS guitars and then that powerful voice!
GROOVY GUITAR HEAVY BACK BEAT SEDUCTIVE CROONS!
I love this track sorta LITA FORD meets FREE DOMINQUES (of the KIDNEYTHIEVES) but I'll have to admit it's a bit misleading.. (now you know I'd love to hear VK LYNNE and GLENN DANZIG do a duet)
IF you are expecting the rest of this album to be as early 90s late 80s heavy metal as this.. you're gonna be disapointed!
I agree this is a great way to kick off the CD though..
Scarlet Rain switches things up a bit.. with a more groove oriented acoustic side of things.
That sexy voice is still here reminding me of CRYSTAL GAYLE this is a good sit around and sing with your friends song.. kinda LYNARD SKYNARD style stuff here..
HER END OF THE PHONE
brings back a bit of that distorted guitar but still not heavy like the title track..I see a distinct guitar style in her music.. up beat funky..
You can tell she has lived these words!
Here we go a sorta WHOLE HEARTED ballad with OTHER SIDE OF MY WORLD
break out the lighters.. and hold hands with the one you love
beautiful voice.. I'd so love to hear a simple acoustic album.
can never go wrong with a string section!
ARE YOU STILL HERE?
creeps up on ya with a kick ass TOOL STYLE drum intro but wait.. nope stil acoustic. a weeks worth of dishes.. has she seen my place?
MY BONES is definately my favorite song, soft and pretty like a lullaby.
it's one of those feel good songs, if she were realy asking me to travel west with her in this style.. I'd leave everything behind and I WOULD IF I WERE YOU!
THANK YOU FOR THIS SONG VK LYNNE!!!!
I wish things were finally on track for me.. but VK LYNNE has an amazing control over her voice she knows how to work it and she's comfortable with the tunes she's carrying!
TRADING ON 15
Not sure why but it reminds me of KRIS KRISTOFFERSONS writing style.. and Train songs.. maybe it's the drum beat.. I'm not sure!
here we go again with the SKYNARD style of ballads I love this..
ok now I'm thinking of Sheri Moon and the end of DEVIL's REJECTS
nothing like this song.. but I love the guitar leads!
my second fave song wraps up this CD
LEAVING THIS LIFE
I listen to this song every night in the car on the way home from whatever party Iv'e been at.. It makes me lonely but makes me feel good at the same time.. I'm not sure why.. I love piano songs and if anyones voice is suited it would be VK LYNNE....
What do I have to say after all this.. I wish I had more time to elaborate over and over and over but the easiest thing to say is BUY THIS CD PLEASE!!!
It's a TREAT!
something special here I wish her the best of luck
and yes I think it's a good idea to completely confuse people with a heavy song then be more country and southern rock with the rest.. very nice..
