A cover of Deep Purple's classic, 'When a Blind Man Cries', also fails to save this album. It's 1994 and the music world, in particular on the rock side of things, is a bit of a mess. I have never enjoyed albums when the songs are all performed at the same level; no matter if it is heavy or soft, there must be light and shade. And Pell's guitar playing, usually impressive though excessively indulgent with the solos, has really started to become more coherent as well. I have always felt that she has been an incredibly overlooked artist, and that she should be given far more credit than she has ever received, and yet again she proves that she is a wonderful performer. And as expected, there's riffs aplenty here. He's still miles better than me though.Next
His music is a traditional European heavy metal sound, citing Dio, Deep Purple, Rainbow, and Yngwie Malmsteen among his greatest influences. A banda continua até o próximo disco sem mudanças significativas, e em 1994 saiBetween The Walls. But that's not going to stop Mr. Axel Rudi Pell sempre foi apaixonado pela música de Ritchie Blackmore e tem como um de seus principais hobbies colecionar discos pirata do Rainbow e do Deep Purple com Blackmore. The songs themselves are of a slightly better quality from before, but to be honest they're still mostly forgettable. Thinking positively however, the title track is actually an incredibly pumping song, and 'Fighting the Law' also has its charm.Next
Rock reminds us constantly of the name of the song. Axel Rudi Pell's guitar playing though still struggles to truly catch on with the solos. When one ballad follows another for a whole album, no matter how well performed, it is just too much for me. Overall, Axel Rudi Pell the man, the band, whichever , will go on to release some stellar albums in the future, but for the most part, 'Wild Obsession' is a decent enough, though not overly essential, debut. Esse disco foi ainda mais bem-sucedido nas paradas alemãs que o seu antecessor, tendo ficado entre os 50 mais vendidos na Alemanha. The music is the same as before.Next
In addition to traditional studio and live albums, Pell has issued several exclusive ballad collections, which have been among his most popular albums. Ele saiu dessa banda em 1988 e em1989 começou sua carreira solo. Chamou Johnny Gioeli ex-Hardline para os vocais e Mike Terrana ex-Yngwie Malmsteen, Rage para a bateria. Axel Rudi Pell ushers in the 90's with another dose of 80's hard rock. The solo's are still a vast flurry of notes, but there's just more substance there now, as opposed to endless scales up and down the neck.Next
There's other bands out there that do this kind of music better, while these ones just feel like they've come about ten years too late. Long haired men with leather jackets shirts optional , high pitched wailing, simple songs with crazy guitar acrobatics, and of course, at least one of them is probably wearing a bandana. The compositions are good, the vocal melodies work well, but it's the guitar solos that tend to drag on in similar fashion. Overall, Axel Rudi Pell will go on to release some incredible music, but his or their? And as for the man himself, Axel Rudi Pell has absolutely unlimited potential on the guitar, but more often than not his soloing just wonders off into a flurry of unrecognizable notes. Because that's exactly what you're getting here. Otherwise, this is a standard early 90's hard rock that probably would have been a raging success if it had been released in the 80's. It is a more measured and less fraught version than the original, but the way it builds and stays true, while also being something that has been re-arranged and developed is definitely of note.Next
And the songwriting as a whole sounds a lot more confident because of it. I first came across his singer, Johnny Gioeli, when he was part of the Hardline project and he has always had an incredible voice, which is an essential element when performing a power ballad, and this album is packed full of them. It's got 80's rock stamped all over it. Este também foi o primeiro disco de Axel Rudi Pell a sair no Brasil. Vocalist Jeff Scott Soto has proven himself a perfect fit with the band, with his incredible voice being a perfect match for the more serious albeit, still pretty cheesy lyrics.Next
But in all honesty, 'Sweet Lil' Suzie' sees the band channel their inner Aerosmith and it is incredible! Além dessas mudanças, foi chamado para os teclados Ferdy Doernberg, ex-Rough Silk. Not that there was much wrong with former vocalists Charlie Huhn or Rob Rock, but Soto's voice is perfect for Pell's sound and style. Vocalist Rob Rock with a name like that, he was hardly going to be a dentist, was he? Essa formação, Axel junto de Johnny Gioeli voz , Mike Terrana bateria , Ferdy Doernberg teclado e Volker Krawczak baixo permanece até hoje, desde essa formação a banda seguiu estável, lançando novos discos e fazendo turnês. I'm still not sure which one to use. Trying to keep the flame alive and harkening back to the sounds of Dio, Rainbow and Yngwie Malmsteen, 'Nasty Reputation' sounds almost identical to its 1989 predecessor, 'Wild Obsession'. Having ditched the sleazy sex, women and nightly thrills 80's vibes of their earlier albums, the band have taken a more fantasy-themed style. Começou a tocar guitarra em 1972 depois de ver Ritchie Blackmore quebrar sua guitarra na televisão.
Still, if you can get past that, there's some alright songs here. It's got its merits, but overall there's much better stuff to come. But otherwise, there's not a lot here to really get excited about. In fact, for all the 80's cheese and macho fist-pumping anthems, the biggest detriment is probably the guitar playing itself. Apesar disso, o disco Oceans Of Time foi gravado com Jorg Michael na bateria.Next
