“Round Trip” is a stripped down, reinvented retrospective of
Tony Harnell's past classics originally recorded with TNT, Westworld and
Starbreaker, with one brand new song. This might not be what some people are
after but I must say this is a fantastic album, epically if you like the said
mentioned bands and Tony's vocals. That being said I can see some people not
liking "Round Trip" at all. It is very stripped down & very soft,
even a little country "Satellite" is a very good example of that.
But it is a breath of fresh air to hear classic TNT songs like "10,000
Lovers, Intuition, Northern Lights, Lonely Nights & Satellite"
stripped down and meshed up into different arrangements but without losing that
classic sound. Basically "Round Trip" is 75% TNT songs with 2 or 3
Westworld songs and a beautiful new track called "Anywhere But Here"
which is very psychedelic, "The Beatles" moment. But it is no
tribute, acoustic best of. NO!!!!, "Round Trip" is a stand alone
album. Tony's voice is in very fine form I must say.
Bottom line, if you like TNT & Tony Harnell and are looking for something
to chill out too then this album is for you.
