Oliver Monroe – Power To The Music

(S/R – 2016)

 

A solo album from the frontman of the band ‘Meroe’ from Munich that features BC Sleaze of Shameless, former Dio man, Tracy G and Tommy Wagener, a former drummer of his and now with Cherie Currie (The Runaways).

 

Plenty of 80’sesque greatness to get your smiling from stopping on such as the rocking ‘Wasted White Boy’ the cheesey countriness of ‘Yeah Yeah’; the powerful ‘They Keep Their Eye On You’ with a rippin’ Tracy G solo or the brilliant west coast meets southerness pf the closing ‘You Make It’ with a supreme solo in there!

 

Good album – I look forward to his next release.

 

8/10
