more praise for Cranston

crossfire - cranstonThe Crossfire website has done another review, and this time it is Cranston who had the pleasure of being scrutinized by editor Steve. Since not everybody will be fluent in German, here is a translation for you:

This year, a trio under the banner of Cranston, whose musicians are likely to be known to bring their 80s melodic rock believably to the man. Producer, mixer, guitarist, bass player and background singer Paul Sabu (ex-Sabu, ex-Only Child). And since the good man has also composed music for a thousand other colleagues, it is hardly surprising that this sounds pretty much like Paul Sabu and his favorites. Between them surely a solid sound a la Thunder in “Long Long Way To Go” and “You Oughta Know,” and  “Queen Of The Pain,” which sounds a bit like “Hey Stoopid” by Alice Cooper. But no matter … Singer Phil Vincent, who was already in Circular Logik, is one of the typical voices of the genre and sounds quite solid. Third is Drummer B.F. D’Ercole (D’Ercole). One creates the usual hook lines and choruses to remember, but one does not look beyond the obvious. Good old standard.
