|Stuart Smith revives the classic Rainbow sound. Guitar and keys are given equal riff time to replicate the Blackmore Rock formula, and while singer Joe Retta may not be the Dio clone that Tony Martin or Jorn Lande is, he comes close enough to get the point across here (that is, when he isn't channeling Paul Rodgers). A quite enjoyable album given it's obvious pedigree, with just enough identity to make it a notch better than mere imitation. Smith has acknowledged his attempt to reflect the influence Deep Purple and Rainbow have had on his musical development, and it's on full display here. Just goes to show how important the Blackmore blueprint was in establishing what's considered Classic Rock anymore. 90 / 100|
