Rivers of Paradise
Style: Melodic Rock
Release date: June 8th 2007

Hiding behind the TRW monicker is a trio consisting of Michael Thompson (guitars), John Robinson (drums) and Mark Williamson (vocals and bass), each of them have an impressive list of collaborations and credits to their names. They have earned most of their credentials by working with Pop superstar such as Michael Jackson, Celine Dion, Madonna and Christina Aguilera among many (never thought I should write these names in a review!), and all of them have release solo-albums in the past.

They got together to record an album that is shaped in mould of classic rock 'n' roll acts like Led Zeppelin, Bad Company, Journey and Toto. The result is ten melodic rock songs with catchy hook lines and soaring vocals done by three great musicians.

Things do get a bit too cheesy and soft for my personal likings at times, but they surely displays great musicianship, a good flair for writing good rock songs and this album should appeal to fans of the above mention bands.

Recommended tracks; "Rivers of Paradise", "Only a Letter" & "Alimony Blues".
