"This Is Rock'n'Roll, Wankers" is the provocative title of the opener of the second CD of the quintet from Italy. These are ecstatic barely three minutes, which were filled better, cooler and more to the point Hardrock'n'Roll-like hardly ever before. At a similar energy level, but with a completely different orientation, "Fly To The Rising Sun" comes along: very close to the Scorpions, without degenerating into a copy. The instrumental abilities of the group members are now beyond doubt, so that they can bring even less spectacular songs home safely and with style. The brilliant keyboard passages of Alessandro Duo are outstanding again and again. All you hear is "Church Of Clay" and let yourself be enchanted. Also here you can notice that the band has become noticeably better since their 2011 debut "Broken Uncle's Inn". The half ballad "Wastin' Miles" is also fun. To these musical trumps comes the more than appealing cover of Storm Thorgerson (among other things Pink Floyd), which provides again for more external effect of Voodoo Highway.
