Atello play a brand of in your face heavy hard rock or even melodic American heavy metal. This is so loud, so in your face - the whole album sounds like it was recorded on 11 - and I like that! The band can still slow things down a little - there are a couple of softer tunes here, more like the style of ballad that Metallica have come to be known for. All in all, good music, good sound and good fun. For those that love American hard rock.

I cannot find any fault with this CD. It's superbly done and the performances are first rate. Atello are pro's and there is nothing crude about their sound or production. Their understanding of what makes successful hard rock is second to none. It's sad that their style of rock has been out of favor with the mainstream for so long. If any band was poised to make a breakthrough then it would be Atello. Anyone who loves music of this sort would be foolish to ignore this.

I've got bad news Atello fans. They've disbanded. Larry hasn't wasted any time. He's formed a new band called Licketty Splitt.

big mistake for larry atello was great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ultimo lanzamiento de Atello, banda de Hard Rock comandada por Larry Atello, que con este lanzamiento le devolvi un poco de respeto al Metal. Arrancan con Wrecking ball, tema que en parte titula al disco. Con una pequea intro apenas humorstica, comienzan los primeros bombazos de su baterista T. Motts, uno ah ya se da cuenta de que no va a ser un disco olvidable para quien lo escuche. Tied Up Me Love me suena a lo viejo de Bon Jovi, as que si algn fantico de los newjersinos desean

escuchar algo nuevo con sonido clsico, esta es su oportunidad. De hecho Larry Atello cuenta con una voz no muy aguda y si bien no debera confundirse con la voz de Jon Bon Jovi, por momentos uno podra encontrar alguna similitud, destacando tambin que Atello posee una voz envidiable para este estilo. Before My Eyes y Over The Moon componen los soft del disco mientras que la balada del mismo es A Lifetime Away, y sin ninguna duda, las tres representan muy buenas canciones lentas,

en especial esta ltima. A pesar de que hay un par de temas que suenan un poco a relleno y no creo que superen los dos, esta placa suena muy pareja, su guitarrista Paul Danni y el base R.A. Heiss (ser nacido en Argentina?), hacen un trabajo bien prolijo. En fin, gracias a Dios, mientras los grandes del Glam tratan de evitar el envejecimiento y cambiando de estilo y modernizndose,

bandas mas actuales como Atello no se olvidan de que el nico estilo que desarroll su propio negocio fue el Metal, y ellos estan aqu para demostrarlo fieles al buen gusto. lhgordo@yahoo.com

Got to admit as a big fan of the debut I was pretty damn disappointed with this. It's not a bad hard rocking disc, but they just fell into a pretty average groove here. They showed a lot of originality and spark on the debut... couldn't really find it here. Good hard rock, just not great.
