Definitely one to spend your hard earned on and I personally can't wait for the second album.

Kurt Lowney, or Kaato as he's perhaps better known, has been playing loud Rock 'N' Roll since he was sixteen. Relocating to Nashville to hook up and record with seasoned Melodic Rock veteran Mitch Malloy may just have eased his search for Rock credibility. Lowney and long-time friend and bassist Mika Nuutinen have suddenly found themselves thrown into the full glare of the Melodic Rock spotlight courtesy of a rather splendid debut.

Initially, Malloy's input was as producer and engineer, but such was the musical chemistry that his involvement as a co-writer of all the tracks quickly became that of rhythm guitarist/backing vocalist which has heralded a brand new start for both. Bringing in long time Malloy and Red Dawn guitarist Tristan Avakian has also been somewhat of a master stroke. Avakian is not only remembered for his searing guitar work on 'Malloy 88' but also the monstrous genre classic 'Red Dawn'.

The bio name checks Boston, Led Zeppelin, Styx and Aerosmith to name a few, but the reality is the candy on offer here rarely strays into any territory that can be directly compared to the aforementioned. Obviously keen to avoid being stereotyped as an eighties band, Lowney emits the stage persona of a seventies Rock star. Opener 'SDRnR' even offers a slight tinge of a Southern guitar riff, not amiss on a Black Crowes album; it's a rather glorious romp with the requisite amount of attitude and some marvellous vocals.

'Colder', with its almost Cheap Trick-ish riff, infectious chorus and driving riff, is as close to perfect Rock 'n' Roll as you can get; brilliant vocal arrangements and duelling twin guitars epitomise this as a bona fide anthem. The current single 'High Time' is another splendid track – made for radio, made for driving the car fast and made for the stage. 'I Don't Love You' represents a healthy left turn having more in common with perhaps Stone Temple Pilots, but it's so heavily laden with layered backing vocals and more stunning guitar work from Avakian; this is definitely one of the album's best tracks.

Malloy has done a sterling job on production and the engineering side and as a result you have an album chock full of bally riffs, great vocals and a lovely bright production which allows everything to stand out clearly. Definitely one to spend your hard earned on and I personally can't wait for the second album.
