Artist discography


The voice of rock is back with a new album and Glenn has a list of qualifications that is pretty long, so I don?t think he need any closer presentation.
So what about his new soloalbum then? I have to say that I was surprised hearing the outcome of the album because the hardrock sound is almost gone.
He has yet again worked with the Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and also got help from another Red Hot Chili Peppers member: guitarist John Frusciante. So maybe it?s not that strange that Glenn?s new album is a pure rock album with plenty of soul and funk,this is so very close to the sound that Red Hot Chili Peppers has that it almost sounds like them and I think it?s a shame because I?m like Glenn more when he delivers classic hardrock.
But one thing that is very good on this album is Glenn?s voice that suits this kind of funk music like a pair of gloves,there are two songs that got me hooked and those were "Frail" that is a beautiful acoustic laid back pop/rock song with an up-tempo chorus and "Black Light" show the best side of Mr. Hughes when he rocks.
There is also a bonustrack called "Nights In White Satin" that is Ok but nothing more. The rest of the album is filled with average funk and soul songs that never takes off. No, this was not an album I had expected from the voice of rock.
