LAW AND ORDER by Ulysses
(Black Glove Recording)

It only takes a few seconds of listening to the latest release from UK rockers, Ulysses, 'Law And Order' to know that it's going to be one hellava rocking ride. The new album is produced by Steve Evans (Robert Plant / Siouxsie / Goldfrapp) and was recorded at Monnow Valley Studios, guest starring Rosalie Cunningham from Purson. Ulysses is powered by Luke Smyth on vocals and guitar, Denny Peppers on guitars and backing vocals, Julyan Wells-Cathedral on bass and backing vocals and Shane Maxymus on drums. 'Law And Order' combines contagious rock riffs and power pop vocal hooks resulting in 12 well crafted rock gems. The title track kicks the album off with a powerful message; talented and well-versed bands do indeed exist outside of the plasticized whine-pop groups that blanket today's rock music scene. We then immediatley rock into "Smiling", a catchy pop/rock ditty that shows the band in fine form. "Lady" is a power pop/rock song that belongs on the radio. This immediatley flows into the rocking, "Crazy Horses Ride The Snake". Other highlights, believe this album is loaded them, are "Dirty Weekend"  a straight forward rock song that begs to cranked up! "Mary Jane", "Typical Scorpio" and the album closing rocker, "How Long?". 'Law And Order' serves to remind the skeptical music fan that it is possible to produce an extremely rocking yet melodic record in this day and age without the angst and gripe that plague today's younger rock bands. This album rocks, plain and simple! Once it finishes all you'll want to do it start it all again and again. No filler. No bad tracks.  It has the flavors from all the great rock eras, the 70's, 80's, 90's,  they're all here. I can't wipe the smile off my face. I rest my case.  - Highly Recommended
