This is a cover album, so in a
sense nothing is new. They're all songs we've heard before. It's a very good
selection - a wide range and something for almost all rock fans. Most of the
material is 70s and 80s.
Add Schenker to a list of classic songs giving his own little tweaks and throw
in the fact that he's being helped out with guest performances from some
deservedly well known and respected artists, and you're not really in any danger
of getting it wrong.
Just as well, since it's well over an hour long.
Some of the songs are a little more modernised. I'm not talking production wise,
I mean in the way Schenker has made them evolve. It sounds a little bit like
what Flotsam and Jetsam did with their re-recording of No Place For Disgrace.
Everything we like about the songs is there (well, that's subjective on my part)
with some additions where Schenker thought they would fit. He seems to have got
it right for the most part. Vocal harmonies and all.
I suppose this is predominantly for guitarists and Schenker fans, but fans of
Sabbath, UFO, Pink Floyd and so on will certainly not be disappointed at what he
has done with these classics. Good work.
