"Savannah" (Z Records; 1998)

Reviewed by Snidermann

The emergence of the post baby boomer populous, 30-40 years of age, has spawned a revolution in so-called classic rock. Classic rock has probably never been more popular than it is now. Reunion tours are packing arenas around the world, and record companies are fast to gobble up a piece of the action. 

Savannah captures the essence of 80s rock. This band sounds like Journey in their heyday. Tight vocals and guitars combined with strong storytelling lyrics makes Savannah a musical blast from the past. Strong vocal harmony throughout the recording (all band members contribute voice as well as instruments) along with killer arrangements makes for a great musical time.

Although I did like Savannah, their music a little slow for my taste, but I did get a chance to relive some of my musical past through their CD.

Savannah is Earl Lord, lead vocals, Dario DiPietrantionio, guitar/vocals, Mark Dolodziej, bass/vocals, Marty Olga, keyboards, vocals and Tony Silva, drums/vocals.

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.
