Very good solo cd from ex Shotgun Messiah vocalist. Lots of guest musicians and good production.

From: jason (FA - Q) Date: January 28, 2003 at 1:28
I haven't heard any of this album but I would like too. And what's up with 'City Boy Blues'? isn't that a song by Motley Crue? I liked Zinny's voice on the 1st Shotgun Messiah album, but he is one ugly fucker, ain't he?

From: Reno Date: February 5, 2003 at 1:57
jason, www.metalmayhem.com has some copies of this if you want it.

What's the production like on this one?, is it better than any of Shotgun's stuff?

From: Jeff Date: February 26, 2003 at 8:48
The production is great and Zinny sings way better than on the Shotgun Messiah album.He have written some great songs and guitar riffs on this one.

From: David Date: March 8, 2003 at 7:24
Can you guys tell me is the guitar player half as good as Cody Harry???

From: Aero Force Mike Date: May 29, 2003 at 16:20
An excellent album. The vocals are WAY better than his off-key shrieks on the first Shotgun Messiah album. The track Hollywood (all about life on the Strip) is such an absolute dead-ringer for Thin Lizzy it's just scary (no doubt intentional because the album's dedicated to Phil Lynott). The production's great, the guitarists are great (almost as good as Cody), but i can't think of who to compare this to. Its got a definate early 90's glam feel to it, without sounding dated. All rocking, no sap!

From: Aero Force Mike Date: May 29, 2003 at 16:22
I'd just like to add that Point of No Return sounds nearly identical to Violent New Breed-era Shotgun Messiah, especially on the vocals, Zinny sounds just like Skold!!! Freaky or what!?!?!

From: onemorecast Date: March 10, 2005 at 22:59
I would be curious to hear this. The first shotgun messiah album was great.

From: Geoff Date: May 3, 2005 at 21:52
What an awful cover. As for the music, this is much better than Zan Clan (though still not a scratch on Shotgun Messiah) and I actually like a few of the songs here, especially 'Point of no return'. I won't call it great or essential, but it's a decent hard rock disc. Nice couple of ballads too.

From: hair metal again Date: February 17, 2015 at 5:17
very good solo release by ZINNY ZAN and of course a hard rockin one!the sound is classic hard rock music and in some songs Zinny sounds like Phil Lynott(he tries hard to),the musicianship is ok and overall this is solid and a nice effort!some highlights are "grin n bear","love is like fire","lost generation" and "wild as a rose"!recommended
