Wilson is probably mostly known as the vocalist, who replaced Phil
Collins in the super-group Genesis. But some of you might also
remember him as the main character in Stiltskin back in the
mid-90's, where they landed a number one hit single with "Inside"
in 1994. "Inside" was off course also used in a Levi's
commercial and their album 'The Mind's Eye' made the Top 10.
more than a decade after they split up, Ray Wilson and Stiltskin is
back with a brand new rock album. You might have stumbled
across their first single "Lemon Yellow Sun" on the
have decided not to rate this album, because this has absolutely
nothing to do with the usual music we review here on this site. But
that doesn't mean that this is god-awful bad album - it's actually a
quite enjoyable rock album with plenty of high quality rock songs
like the first single, the very strong opener: "Fly High",
the grungy "Taking Time", which uses the same sequence
from 'Revelation Ch. XIII' as Iron Maiden does on "Number of
the Beast" - here it ends the song or "Fame" with
it's very ironic lyrics.
I can only recommend this one to readers, who
occasionally do pick up a "normal" rock album and listen
to it with pleasure. If you do like rock music, then I suggest you'd
look into this great album, because it has clearly left a very
positive mark on me...
