"Off the Ivory Coast" (Reeltime Records; 2010)
Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton
"Off the Ivory Coast" Is a mixed bag of songs, some of which are pretty hard-rockin' (not metal, but hard rock tunes), some of which are like Journey-type ballads. It’s all pretty well done, which is good, although some of it does get a little dull at times. But songs like “Day’s Warning” simply rock your socks off. Other songs are a little too ballad-y and a little too FM radio friendly, not in the AOR sense but more like sing-along ballads in the vein of REO Speedwagon.
Bottom line: The hard rockin’ stuff is pretty good, the other stuff not so much, but overall a pretty interesting record if a little tame for most Rough Edge readers.

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.
