Through the years, it has been interesting to witness the number of classic rock artist combinations have joined together having the Ritchie Blackmore connection. Certainly England has an incestuous history in the classic rock department, as almost all of the artists that are associated with Black Sabbath, Whitesnake, Rainbow, Deep Purple, and The Gary Moore Band are interlinked. So, I guess it makes perfect sense then that Glenn Hughes and Joe Lynn Turner have finally joined forces to put out this, very smooth, classic rock-influenced one off. Glenn's influence is more evident here, likely due to the fact his solo style is more well defined than that of Turner, who has released two albums of cover material in his later years. Right out of the gates this record burns serious rubber with "Devils Road," which is on par with the classics of Rainbow and earlier Hughes output, especially with Hughes/Thrall. The high spiritedness continues on the next two selections, "You Can't Stop Rock n' Roll" and "Missed Your Name." Then in an instant, things are brought back to Rainbow circa 1983 with Turner's "Mystery of the Heart," a trademark AOR ballad topped with one of Joe's more subtle croons.
Not surprising given the fact that JJ Marsh handles lead guitar chores, much of the material sounds like Hughes' recent solo outings, heavy into funk beats and churchy organs. This is particularly evident on "Sister Midnight," which could have easily come off of sessions from either one of his past two solo efforts. On the later songs, Hughes vocals tend to drown out those of Turner, who seems to be doing more color commentating than lead vocalizing. A minor complaint though, as it's always a joy to hear Glenn's soulful inflection riding over smooth but gutsy melodies.

Music these days just isn't what it used to be. Once upon a time, bands had to write music that came straight from their hearts and then go out on tour to see if they could build up a following for their music. Today, producers probably are more concerned about the video you can make to accompany any given song and whether or not you'd look good on a lunchbox.
Joe Lynn Turner and Glenn Hughes are veterans from those great old days. This album is as good as anything I've ever heard in the hard rock genre. The best part of it is that it doesn't sound old and worn -- it is completely 2002 and fresh. Turner has clearly come into his own as a rock artist. Hughes is a fabulous musician, probably one of the most underrated rock talents out there.
The album is pure classic hard artistic rock. The amazing thing is that these two vocalists sing together in such perfect harmony. They lose nothing to each other. Rather, they seem to be greater than the sum of their individual parts. I listen to a fair amount of their solo material; you can hear those elements here, but the result is beyond what you would expect in terms of raw musical depth.
"Devil's Road", the first track of the album is a fabulous hard rock anthem. The album never lets up from there; I love the personal and confidant offering "You Can't Stop Rock & Roll" as well as the raucous paced "Run, Run, Run". The ballad of ballads just has to be "Fade Away".
Hopefully, these guys will stay together and keep on rockin'. They have really found the groove. Of particular interest, american music producers have discovered this release and are going to re-release in America for the first time given the rave response to the album in Europe and Japan. Do yourself a favor and buy this album.

Glenn Hughes and Joe Lynn Turner are both old boys of rock and it shows that these two knows good hard rock. This album is probably the best one in years in this genre. It's melodic but not cheesy, hard but not painful. The concept might be odd to some people since both Hughes and Turner are singers, but it works out more than fine.
I had my doubts before this release since Hughes in my opinion had gone musically astray, and Turner hadn't done anything excellent in years apart from his two cover albums. But I was wrong, this album is great. It reminds a bit of the Rainbow era when Turner was their singer (compare "Devil's road" with Rainbow's "Death alley driver" for example, and "Mystery of the heart" with "Stone cold" and "Street of dreams").
If you like melodic hard rock of high quality you should get this album - I can garantee you won't be disappointed!
