Good solid rock and roll worth rotation
If you trip back to 1989, when a memorable guitar riff and a good hair mousse were necessities, you may remember American Angel, who debuted on Mtv to heavy rotation, and struck a chord in the hair band, video, Headbanger's Ball accompanying scene.
After a 15 year lunch break, the band is back with their new release, Vanity and despite changes in band members, original lead singer Rocco Furry hasn't lost his touch over the years. He is still giving the lyrical swagger from day's gone by recalling an early Sebastian Bach with a MSG sensibility. Joined by new members Dennis Zehrer - guitar, Mike Biscula - guitar,Jay Druzba - bass, Marc Ambrosy - drums and Eric Ragno - keyboards, American Angel and Furry are not giving up on their roots.
The tracks steadily get more catchy as the cd moves through- fave ear candy bites include "Vanity", "Seven" and "Don't Wait Up".
Overall, the cd is good solid rock and roll worth rotation and a few keyboard strokes to amazon.com.
