Some of the songs may make some people a little uncomfortable.

The message said, “Can I entice you to do a CD review, please? It's Julian Angel's Beautiful Beast - 'Adult Oriented Candy'... Please let me know. I have a full CD I can send you if you are up for the challenge! (Actually, you will probably like it....)”Now, for some reason this worried me so I asked what type of album was it and the reply that came back was: ‘Well, I'd prefer to leave it to you to discover.  But I will say this, I think you will frown and smile in equal proportions as the CD unfolds. More than that I will not say, but bearing in mind a CD of yours I reviewed a little while ago, I do think that you have what is needed to give this a good crack of the whip - in whatever way you think appropriate!I really look forward to reading your review!!”Oh dear.

So I received the album and the cover showed a picture of said Mr Angel, holding guitar, with a young ladies head positioned low down in the area of his…….., well you know what I mean.And I feared the worst. The first track ‘Showdown’ for some reason put ‘Anvil’ into my mind.Mr Angel’s voice isn’t the best or the strongest, and I thought it was going to be funny without the intent, but the music wasn’t bad.And it’s fair to say that the music and melodies were fairly strong throughout the whole album, ‘Do You Want It’, ‘Ride With The Wild One,’ ‘Tokyo Nights’, ‘Juvenile Affair’ and ‘Rock All Arenas’ will all be adored by the head bangers society, and rightly so.Quieter songs ‘Save My Heart’ and ‘Still I Dream Of You’ are still very strong, the former being as good as anything you may hear on a Whitesnake or Def Leppard album, apart from the vocals of course.

However, there is a problem, and this is probably the area where I was expected to frown because, while ‘Ride With The Wild One,’ ‘Juvenile Affair,’ ‘Wild Tonight’ and ‘Singer And Guitarist In A Hair Band’ are all storming songs, they may make some people a little uncomfortable as they are concerned with generally….., well, messing about with schoolgirls.Dangerous ground really in these times.Which may make a difference, or may not. If it does it would be a shame as the music and guitar playing is very good.

I suggest that Mr Angel try a different subject matter and get a vocalist, and he may end up a lot bigger than he is now. (No pun intended)!
