Jeff Scott Soto
Retribution
Company: Frontiers
Release: 2017
Genre: Hard Rock
Reviewer: Eric Compton
Published: 12/20/2017

Heavier cuts before moving firmly into AOR and melodic rock
COMMENTS:
Jeff Scott Soto has his hands in TSO, W.E.T., Sons of Apollo and SOTO. I'm not sure how he keeps up with it all, or remembers lyrics, but 'Retribution' is his sixth album to date and once again aligns himself with Howie Simon, who co-wrote and produced the album. While SOTO is a heavier, more metallic version, the JSS stuff is a bit more AOR. This new record is front loaded with the heavy bag punches within the first few songs. Afterwards, the album really mellows out to lighter, more rock flavored substance. It's still enjoyable and Soto is a champ, but I do enjoy more bite with my pudding.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
SOTO, W.E.T., Shakra
