Rockveterans Glenn Hughes and Joe Lynn Turner are back with the second HTP album. Last year they
released "Hughes/Turner Project 1" and followed up that release with a tour and a live album recorded in Japan. The albums got great response from both fans and press. Earlier this year both released soloalbums that were their
strongest for a long time in my opinion.
Now they?re back with the follow up simple called "II". This album goes in the same style as the first one and it?s heavy bluesbased hardrock with tough guitarriffs and husky voices we?re talking about.
I think that they both give their best and sings their hearts out on this album. The vocals are just amazing and they both deliver performances that shows that they have not lost the magic touch.
This is a very strong album from the first riff to the last. They open up with "Revelation" that rocks like hell and they bring out some impressive vocals and the hammering guitars are just brilliant.
"Going My Way" is my favourite track on the album. On this one Mr. Turner brings out amazing vocal-performance and this song has great hooklines and melodies. The chorus is brilliant and is a cross of Brazen Abbot and Deep Purple.
Are you into Unruly Child??? Well then listen to "Losing My Head". This is a song that reminds of Unruly Child in their rockier moments.
Another favourite is the mid-tempo rocker "Lost Dreams". The harmony vocals on this track is unbelievable like that?s the only thing they have done in their lifes and maybe that?s why it sounds so good, and the keyboards in the background are also great.
"Time And Time Again" shows again Joe Lynn Turner at his best. This is a song that could have been on the latest Brazen Abbot album. The guitars are sounding like Gary Moore.
Well if you miss the good old days when Deep Purple did great bluesbased hardrock you don?t have to wait any longer. This new HTP album
should make their old bandmembers in Deep Purple jealous.
This is a strong hardrock album that is the best these gentlemen has done for a long time. So if you dig the first album then you will love this even more. Fans of these two rockers will jump of joy when they get their hands on this one.
