Lynx - Varied Power Pop & Rock Classic

(4 out of 5 stars)
"Bought all three Lynx releases in the used bin. Had no idea who they were. What a pleasant surprise. Lynx was a Canadian band working in the late 1970s that are tough to classify. Try this on for size - some Donnie Iris influences (tight harmonies and guitar work) with a bit of BTO on a couple of rockers, a bit of Journey thrown in and a really dandy update of the Stairway To Heaven riff - Hold On. The production quality is crystal clear. Nice use of synths and keys when appropriate. The guitarist is fast but tasteful - melodic riffing. Thundermug comes to mind - another under-rated Canadian band that combined a number of 60s and 70s influences into several rock-pop classics (remember their Move tribute - Orbit?). After a couple of listens, Lynx is in my top 50 overall bands. Wondered what happened to the guitarist? He seemed to get better and better over the course of these three releases."
