KINGDOM COME – the
legendary copycats! .-)
I guess everybody
remembers back in the late 80s when Lenny Wolf and co. released their 2
first albums and received surprisingly good reviews although they
”almost” copied every phrase Led Zeppelin ever wrote… Kingdom Come
invented the term ”Led Clones”!
Personally, I never
really cared much for this band but I own all their albums and to be
honest, they’re actually pretty good! Especially the debut!
Well, Kingdom Come have
tried to reinvent themselves up through the years and, in my opinion,
never really succeeded in doing so!
Well, that’s all
gonna change now, I guess! Cos’ this new album is a really good
combination of charasteristic vocals (Lenny Wolf is one of a kind!),
good melodies and, unfortunately, modern guitar sounds (tuned down too
far!) – It all comes down to a pretty good album and were it not for
the irritating NU-Metal sounds played by the guitar, I’d probably rate
this album even higher!
material and solid craftmanship prevent this boat from sinking and in
its own right, this album deserves more media attention than it’ll
earthshattering, but worth a spin or two!
And we also get a brand
new version of ”Get It On”! Nice!
