Personally, I've had my fill and couldn't wait to turn it off.

The new solo album from the Dogs D'Amour frontman, 'Devil's Supper (Electric Sitting)' is billed as a full on electric rock 'n' roll album. There are no details about who else (if anybody) performs on record with Tyla, but the press release does state that the strings and horns were provided by the Royal Academy Of Music and Paul Brennan.

Opener 'Love Is' reminds me of material from Ronnie Wood's last album, both in terms of style and gravely vocal approach. 'Long Shadows' is in similar territory, driven along by acoustic guitar and piano, but is let down by horrendously raspy singing. 'It Ain't Over Yet' is a bluesy effort with a semi-spoken vocal while 'Green Eyed Girl', chosen as the single, chugs along under another sandpaper melody line, underpinned by some awful backing singing.

'All Alone' and 'Judas Christ' aren't bad songs, but halfway through the album I'm acutely aware the vocals aren't going to get any better – the wavering on the latter's chorus only strengthening my opinion. There's a Rolling Stones vibe on the likes of 'The Meaning Of Fortune And Fame' but that's not enough to sway me.

I was never a follower of Dogs D'Amour and this is my first encounter with Tyla's solo work. It will hopefully be my last as I found it extremely hard work to get through the album repeatedly. I know the Dogs have been around forever and there are probably many fans who want to crucify me as a result of this review – each to their own. Some people may well love 'Devil's Supper'. Personally, I've had my fill and couldn't wait to turn it off.
