Artist discography


The name Pinnacle Point sounds like a Kansas tribute band and by listening to the album "Winds of change", I really think they could tour playing Kansas covers because Pinnacle Point sounds like a hard rock version of Kansas.
Now to make things clear, "Winds of change" is an album of original songs that truly could be unreleased Kansas songs, yes they are that good. Singer Jerome Mazza (ex.Angelica) even sings a bit like Steve Walsh and Jerome is not ashamed of borrowing some lyrics here and there on the album.
I can imagine Jerome Mazza was one of the names when Kansas auditioned singers to replace Steve Walsh but they ended up wanting Ronnie Platt, perhaps mostly because of Platt´s keyboard skills.
Guitarist/songwriter Torben Enevoldsen (Fate) is very talented but if they are about to make a second album as Pinnacle Point, Torben and Jerome should consider creating their own musical identity instead of walking the thin line of becoming Kansas rip-offs. These musicians have the ability of doing something great, if they could only show it.
The problem with sounding just like Kansas, is that people will always compare this band to the music of Kansas and then I´m afraid, Pinnacle Point will be one size to small.
