BILOXI

"III: In the Wake of the Storm" (Self-produced; 2007)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

 

"III: In the Wake of the Storm" is a collection of AOR rockers featuring giant guitar chords, soaring vocals and melodic choruses that will have you singing along and playing plenty of air guitar.

The CD begins with the solid rocker, "Here Alone," and runs the gamut from there, going through the muscle-bound rockers ("Here Alone," "Broken"), the radio-ready ballads ("Saints and Angels, "Empty Road to Nowhere") and everything in between ("World," "I Pray"). Each song is definitely guitar-driven and vocalists Mark Allen Lanoue and Clyde Holly both have the big voices necessary to drive each song home (Sadly, Holly tragically passed away before this album was completed and appears only on two tracks).

Sounding at times like Bon Jovi, Axe and even Stryper(!), Biloxi delivers a powerful kick that will get the blood of AOR fans pumping.

Biloxi: Clyde Holly - vocals, guitars, keys; Mark Allen Lanoue - vocals, guitars; Rob Gronkoski - drums, backing vocals; Dave Melton - bass guitar; Stephan Prescott - keyboards.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
