Kingdom Come is a solo project by Lenny Wolf. Only the guitar solos were supported by Eric Förster on his latest work. He is said to have spent one and a half years working on "Outlier" in his Hamburg home studio. And so the album seems more than just a little overproduced. Hardly any groove rocks and only rarely catch the melodies. Already the opener "God Does Not Sing Our Song" is more fight and cramp than anything else. Little has remained of the lightness and casualness that once distinguished Kingdom Come. The industrial metal impact ("Running High Distortion") destroys some good song parts. As if from afar one can only guess what a good and expressive singer Wolf is. The album as a whole seems cumbersome and overambitious. And an electronic impact like in "Rough Ride Rallye" looks more strange than modern. Too bad, because the talented wolf can, as "Let The Silence Talk" proves, still write and perform great songs.
