One of Canada's finest rock exports Big Wreck are back with their highly anticipated new release, 'Grace Street' the band's fifth studio recording. Ian Thornley on vocals/guitar along with Brian Doherty on guitars, Dave McMillan on bass and Chuck Keeping on drums. On their latest offering the band serve up a diverse organic classic rock vibe. "It Comes As No Surprise" opens the album powered by Ian Thornley's vocal delivery followed by the catchy lead off single, "One Good Piece Of Me'. From there on the listening experience just gets better with tracks like,"Tomorrow Down", the Rolling Stone vibe of, "You Don't Even Know" and the Zepplish "Digging In" and the seven minute instrumental gem, "Skybunk Marché”. Overall, what we have here is music that grabs you instantly by the ears and keeps you entertained with short, sharp bursts of energy. It draws from all aspects of Ian Thornley's creative work. Any of these songs could have been found on his previous albums without sounding too different, and yet at the same time Big Wreck has managed to move the bar up a few notches. 'Grace Street' buzzes with energy, bristles with power and blows you away in the sheer quality and diversity of music flowing into your ears. Whatever mood you are in, this album will lift it.
