This latest all star project from Liberty n' Justice features an eclectic who's who of musical artist.
It would take too long to name all of them but here's just a few names that I'm sure you'll recognize:
Ez Gomer of Jet Circus, Sebastian Bach of Skid Row, Dale & Troy Thompson of Bride, Leif Garrett,
Scott Wenzel of White Cross, Mark Slaughter of Slaughter, Stephen Pearcy of Ratt, and Mike Lee of Barren Cross.
This release intermixes all out hard rocking tracks with several more melodic songs. You'll also find softer ballads like, "Malice In Wonderland," by Jamie Rowe and "Always Tomorrow" by Ted Poley along with the heavy rock ballad, "Up That Hill" from Josh Kramer.
The release also decides to lighten it up a bit with some comedy momments in the intro and outro's. In the intro if you're not a movie fan you might not get the line and in the outro is a playful jab at music reviewers like myself.
In their last all star project "Welcome To The Revolution" there was several rapping parts on the release that some reviewers, including myself, didn't really fit in with the rest of the release.
So, when I got this CD I naturally placed it in the player and clicked right to track 10,
"Surreal" featuring Scott Wenzel. No, not again instead of hearing some hard driving song it's a comedy skit featuring Scott about how the singers are gotten for on these all star releases.
My plea to the man behind all of these all star projects Justin Murr please let Scott's vocals rip lose on a real full blown rock n' roll song on the next project!
That said the CD hits the marks on almost everything else. You get a mix of over one hour of quality music filled with passionate lyrics.
The songs hit on themes that most people can relate to like salvation, redemption, and God's grace.
The CD also ends with a salvation prayer in the outro from Justin Murr. You can tell from his voice that he's really sincere with his words and these musical projects and his desire to reach out to people.
Nice job Justin on this project, the rapping is gone and if we could get that song from Scott on the next project all will be well in the Rock n' Roll Kingdom.
