'Shark Sandwich' by Spinal Tap was called "shit sandwich" in a review; if I am to be brutally honest, that's a sandwich up on this album.

'Shark Sandwich' by Spinal Tap was called "shit sandwich" in a review (if the mockumentary was to be believed); if I am to be brutally honest (and I always am), that's a sandwich up on this album!

David Glen Eisley of Giuffria and Craig Goldy of Resurrection Kings/Dio have come together to write some songs which are basically ruined by Eisley's voice. It's not that he can't sing, but he simply tries too hard. It's emote here, emote there, and not a lot else; when he does pull back, he sounds quite reasonable.

Goldy has always been a mystery to me. He can play, but his playing does nothing at all for me personally. His solos are not great on this album. I respect the man for what he's done, and continues to do, but he just doesn't grab me as a player.

From the opening notes of 'I Don't Belong Here Anymore', Eisley emotes like it's a cure for scrofula and he has contracted a terminal case of it. In the intro, he makes it plain for everyone that you're having some emotion, whether you like it or not, even to the detriment of the song. He carries that on throughout the album, utterly ruining the songs, which at times are good, but are "Meat-loafed" into submission. Of course, this will be manna from heaven for the Giuffria fans out there; personally, I hate it!

I can see people buying this for the name of the protagonists and one or two will probably quite enjoy it. However, in my opinion, they are going to be wrong, in every way, shape and form... wrong!

This whole album feels like a simple exercise of Frontiers wanting a Giuffria sounding album and being willing to pay for it. This is not a Giuffria album, not at all. It's bereft of the class, quality and most importantly... the songs. Sadly, this album has done nothing at all for me.
