Music For All Moods

the mayfairmall The UK webzine The Mayfair Mall have done and extensive, and often hilarious review of the Cranston album. Robb starts:

AAh, me owld marra Phil Vincent makes a return to these ears, teaming up with Rock Icon Paul Sabu to form a new outfit Cranston, and on this self-titled debut album, make no mistake, it’ll blow your socks off better than those hard mints off that TV advert! To say both stars have ‘been round the block’ could be taken as an insult, but none is meant in that quote, in fact, it is supposed to mean that they both have kept on going, even if things didn’t quite work out at times, keeping themselves busy no matter what.  So it’s great to see the two come together now, and judging by the opening Rock groover ‘Long, Long Way To Go’, they haven’t lost any of their passion when it comes to ‘giving it welly’!

This is a storming track that rattles the speakers to the very edge of them crumbling before your eyes, then as B.F. D’Ercole lays into the drumkit on ‘You Outta Know’, and the slightest hint of Rock mayhem takes over, you soon realise there’s a possibility there’ll be no ballads here! ‘See You On The Other Side’ continues on that route, Sabu’s keys playing a major part within the song, Vincent’s raspy vocals adding to the hard-nosed vibe throughout, before what I can only describe as The Eagles going berserk comes along on ‘Trouble Ahead’, because the wee hook that needles itself in and out reminds me of  ‘Life In The Fast Lane’, though THAT band would never let their hair down and Rock out like Cranston do here, and I mean ROCK OUT!!

Thank you Robb
