A fine reminder of all that was great about Jani Lane.

Yes, this is obviously a re-issue – but a significant one. 'Back Down To One' was the first solo outing for Jani Lane when he first left Warrant; a bonus being that it is being re-released by the original label, Z Records, having up to now been a highly sought after item given it has long been out of print.
Surrounded by controversy his entire life, Lane's talents were somewhat obscured and overshadowed by the goings on during his music career. This album shows his song-writing and singing talents more so then when he was fronting the "Rock sensation" Warrant.

Please don't misunderstand me, Warrant are a very fine band – they were so when Lane was with them and are very much so to this day – it is just that this collection of songs are Lane's alone, and not fashioned to what a band may want or need. So, unencumbered by a set structure, 'Back...' finds Lane fully exploring his song-writing and composition skills. It also displays his pioneering spirit as well.

Some songs on this record are quite introspective; they are written and sung with no apologies offered. It is a "take it as it is" collection and, by the way, not hard to do so! Any of the songs on this effort show us how much care Lane took in the writing.

The title track is a great example as are songs such as 'Hooked', 'Don't Trust Me', 'Sick' and the emotive 'Twilight'. At the time of the original release (2003), this outing cemented all that Lane promised in Warrant; it showed all of us that this singer could stand up on his own and convey that same high style Hard Rock that he had delivered for his ex-band mates. Lane could, and did, say a lot in a three minute plus Rock song; 'Back...' is testament to that!

I realise that Lane is no longer with us and that is certainly sad, but his work lives on; with this album his talents are front and centre as is his spirit, so we have a fine reminder of all that was great about Jani Lane – 'Back Down To One'.
