"Dream" (Greg X Music; 2011)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

"Dream" is a very entertaining hard rock album, in the classic sense, that sounds like a cross between Foreigner and Glenn Hughes era Rainbow. The songs are very radio friendly, the guitars are solid but never extreme. It's a very pop angled hard rock album that manages to deliver without feeling like it sold out.

Vocals on the CD are provided by, fittingly, the legendary Ken Tamplin which, of course, brings the entire project up a notch. The songs are are all well-written and
hold your interest from beginning to end. "Dream" is a very fun album to listen to and I love Greg's advice on the inside cover:

"Now I would like to invite you to sit down, relax, and listen to the album once or twice without any distractions and while doing so read all the info including the lyrics and information about the songs. This is what people used to do in the old pre-Internet days."

Do it! You won't be able to resist this "Dream."

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.
