Strutter on Cranston

strutterCranston ‘Cranston’ (Rock Company)

Cranston from Rhode Island, USA is a band/project formed around musicians whom have already made a household name in the melodic rockworld. The band consists of none other than multi-instrumentalists/vocalists Phil Vincent and Paul Sabu as well as drummer B.F. D’Ercole. Together they recorded an album that musically is clearly sounding like a cross between Phil and Paul’s solo-records, so no surprises at all here. It’s sounding a little better than the last couple of records both gentlemen released, but still the 10 included songs are very cliché tingled melodic hardrocksongs that will definitely please the fans of Sabu and Vincent, although don’t expect anything new here I’m afraid. Not saying it is bad, because it’s all done quite well, but most of the material reminds me of a slightly weaker version of their past work when they started both in the music business and that sounded very sensational (Kidd Glove and Phil Vincent’s first couple of records). So if you’re not familiar with those albums, better start from scratch and leave this alone, but in case you’re a dedicated fan of Sabu and Vincent, then make sure to check this out at:
