FINAL GRAVITY

"Final Gravity" (Self-released; 2010)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

 

Final Gravity's self-titled album is an interesting combination of classic rock in the progressive vein of Rush or in the straight-forward vein of 70s rockers like Starz.  As a matter of fact, the vocalist sometimes even sounds a little like Geddy Lee or Michael Lee Smith.

The songs are all well-written, aggressive rockers except for the ballads, which slow things down and don't work as well as the other tracks, the exception being "Go on Home," which is one of the best tracks on the CD.

Different, and maybe not everybody's cup of tea, but worth a listen here for the variety and classic rock / progressive sounds.

Shortly after this CD was released, the band lost its lead vocalist to a long distance job but re-grouped with a new female vocalist who, strangely enough, doesn't sound much like Geddy Lee. For more information, check out http://www.finalgravityband.com.

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.
