CD Reviews

My favorite Gamma release.
James Lucas Chatfield | America | 12/30/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Ronnie Montrose has always been one of my favorite guitarists, and his highly-overlooked band Gamma is one of the reasons why.
Combining the synth-effects play of Rush with the garage-guitar drive of Bad Company or Foreigner. Gamma released 3 albums, each with its own distinct flavor. The first was straight-on rock with a little bit of everything, the third and weakest being heavier on the AOR pop side of Journey.

The second album is the rockin' one. A lot of it has to do with the sound of the drums. They are raw and brutal here, and it helps give an edge to crushers like "Mean Streak" and "Cat On A Leash". There is also an interesting rendition of the protest song "Something In The Air" and the first blues song about astronauts, "Voyager".

Good solid hard rock album!"
