CD Reviews

Twisting Wind
Lee Armstrong | Winterville, NC United States | 01/20/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"After the Alarm split up, Dave Sharp released two solo discs. The first Hard Travellin' came out in 1991 and reached classic status for me as an incredibly consistent disc combining passionate delivery and excellent songwriting. "Downtown America" followed five years later and is more topical in its subject matter. It rocks hard on tracks like "The Rebel" & "Drive These Blues Away." "Tender Mercy" is an excellent track that is stylistically reminiscent of his first solo disc. Sharp's voice has a little harshness seeping in that becomes more apparent on the midtempo tracks like "Road to Mexico." "Twistin' Wind" is an excellent track with Sharp's excellent melody and searing guitar lead. "Downtown America" is a good album that sounds great a decade + later. Enjoy!"
Diamond in the Rough

"Amazingly good CD. I put it in the player and left it in there for at least 20 plays, never got bored and liked it more every time I heard it! This is the guitar player for The Alarm, another dynamite band, so it's no wonder. Highly recommended."
