Prog Reviewer
4 stars Same line-up as the first but with Willy Daffern on vocals. This albums certainly deserves a better rating than a 2 or a 3. 3.5 stars, really. A great mixture of both the first and 2nd albums. Of note, Willy Daffern has a pretty fine set of hard rock pipes(would've fit in well with Van Halen or Rainbow). _Icarus_ is an excellent composition with time signatures reminiscent of the first album. _Do Or Die_ actually reminds a bit of Iron Butterfly(probably the Lee Dorman influence...and the vocals sound a little like Doug Ingle as well). The style is more varied on DAWN EXPLOSION, not unlike a Thin Lizzy album where you'll get a ballad, outright heavy metal and funk infused hard rock. If you enjoy hard rock albums by the Joe-Lynn Tuner version of Rainbow or mid '70s Deep Purple a la _Burn_ and _Stormbringer_, than this should fit in well with your collection.
Gooner | 4/5 |
