MARK ST. JOHN PROJECT
"Mark St. John Project" (Loch Ness Monster Records; 1999)
Reviewed by Snidermann
Mark St. John, a respected guitar instructor, turned Kiss guitarist for 1984's "Animalize" CD. St. John spent eight months as a member of Kiss before arthritis forced him to quit the band.
St. John recorded this EP in the summer of 1999 and what a recording it is! Hard driving rock'n'roll that sounds shades better than any Kiss recording from that era.
Peter Criss co-wrote three of the five songs and it is apparent from those three cuts that he and St. John had a very special friendship.
This CD rocks and it's a sad reminder that heavy music lost a true artist, Mark St. John, when he died in April of 2007.
There are only five cuts on this CD and that's really the only downside. I only wish there were more. This CD is no longer in print but, occasionally, you can find a copy on eBay.
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.
