The English musician Alistair Gordon is certainly not new to the music business... no Sir...
some of you out there might know that he has lend his voice to several artist such as; Eric
Clapton and The Choirboys (among others). He has been a part of several bands or
projects of his own... but let’s concentrate on this release by RADIO SILENCE called ‘Whose
Skin Are You Under Now?’.
We get 12 tracks of AOR music and usually I like my music harder but this album is a pleasant
surprise in my book. Alistair Gordon knows how to write a catchy tune that’s for sure. Give this
album a few listens and you know what I mean. Well... there are a few songs here that are too
soft for my taste but when the guitars start to hum I’m hooked right away.
The rockier songs are dripping with classy melodic rock hooks from start to finish and you’ll find yourself singing along to tracks such as; “Hand to Mouth”, “Mosquito” and the excellent “Heart
of Hearts” before you know it.
Fans of AOR should at least check this album out.
