CD REVIEW: S/T by Revolution Saints

S/T by Revolution Saints
(Frontier Records)

REVOLUTION SAINTS, AOR' s latest "Super Group" featuring, Deen Castronovo (Journey/Bad English), Jack Blades (Night Ranger/Damn Yankees) and Doug Aldrich (Burning Rain/Whitesnake). Together the trio have put together one hell of a debut release. Bringing back the classic melodic rock style to where it should be: inspiring, uplifting vocals, soaring melodies and musicianship to die for. It's essence is very positive, obviously centered on the lyrical subject of love and at times going beyond that and getting philosophical There's not a bad track on this album and no filler. All songs rock and are memorable, but my personal favorites are, "Back On My Trail", "Way To The Sun "(Feat. Neal Schon), "Don't Walk Away" and  "Strangers To This Life". The chemistry between the trio is like white on rice. Deen Castronovo does an amazing job in the vocal department. While his vocal stylings may remind some of one Steve Perry, Deen brings his own flavor to the table. Jack Blades is on point and Doug Aldrich's guitar playing is simply superb. Hooks , great melodies , superb guitar playing - if I had to make a comparison to another band I`d go for Journey on top form - Escape/Frontiers time. Supergroups don`t generally work , Bad English being a noteable exception , but this is just superb. Revolution Saint's debut release is also one of the fieriest slices of hard melodic rock you’ll hear this year. - Highly Recommended
