    Did JLT learn a new note? That was mean but meant to be funny

    You won’t fool us with that false advertisement

    not my cup of tea.But that is because of my dislike of Joe Lynn Turner style and singing.The music doesn’t do it for me,overproducing,writing or whatever….nahh

    It’s quite obvious with the above comments not many people will be buying the new album, i can understand the like or the dislikes of Joe Lynn Turner’s voice, although
    i am not a massive fan, the album does sound quite good, having bought all of The
    Sunstorm albums, to me i guess its good to see him rock out, but as stated above everyone
    has their own personal tastes in music, depends on what we enjoy at any given time, but
    for some reason i am looking forward to the album, obviously the music has been done before, but i’ll give it a go.

    Gotta state here that it sure is promising. JLT seems to have trimmed down his ‘buffont hair do’ and his ‘buffoon style’. The band as a whole sounds great and JLT himself sounds less AOR oriented. Looking forward to this’

    That being said… LRT @2

    Take a view and listen to GH with Alter Bridge covering Highway Star during the recent California Breed supporting tour. Gotta hand it to his opening on that. Nails it at first, then…. well, you be the judge.

    I know Glenn Hughes has his supporters and his haters,I respect his work,but you could never compare him with JLT in every level.Better musician overall.I will take California Breed music over every project of JLT style and band.

    I will definitely be getting this. I haven’t been interested in the last few JLT rock/pop releases. Good to see that he’s back with the Karl Cochran rock sound.

    Rascal says:

    Its gonna be short lived – it always is when JLT is involved – thats the only saving grace – it’ll all be over soon!

    I’m going to get this. I hope Rated X goes on tour with California Breed and the Winery Dogs.
