"Every once-in-a-blue-moon there emerges a rock album which exceeds all reasonable expectations and simply pile drives its way to the upper echelons of the rock elite - Trevor Rabin's Wolf is just such an album.Press the play button and Wolf bursts into life with the exuberant and powerful Open Ended which mixes synth and guitar to epic effect. Next is the soaring and huge rock anthem Heard You Cry Wolf which leaves the listener breathless and possibly a little frightened. Wolf then gives us a chance to relax a while with some twists and turns that mix thoughtful blues and hard rock at various ratios before hitting right between the eyes again with the AC/DCesque (but pleasingly darker and more lupine) Looking For A Lady (Wolfman). The next notable track is Take Me To A Party which is a bouncy and likeable little slide guitar romp which was the one track from the album that was originally released as a single; albeit remixed - this CD's version of Take Me To A Party is, unfortunately, the remixed single rather than the original album track - it's not worse but it is different and I would have preferred the original. The penultimate track on the album, She's Easy, is (despite its somewhat inane lyrics) an absolute belter. She's Easy stalks and menaces its way to a climatic guitar solo which truly snarls and threatens to rip the flesh from your bones - marvellous !In conclusion: there are a couple of filler tracks and the original Take Me To A Party should have been used in the album with the remixed single added at the end as a bonus track but these complaints are largely insignificant because when this album is good it's really excellent and there is enough assembled quality to merit 5 stars with ease. If you like rock music from the 60s/70s/80s era then you'll like this album. The three little pigs wouldn't have been safe in a Challenger tank with this wolf around. Highly recommended."
Review: TREVOR RABIN "Wolf"

"Trevor Rabin's "Wolf" is a gem! Anyone who liked Trevor's first two releases are sure to be captivated by this record. Highlights include "Open Ended", "Looking For A Lady", and also the guitar solo "Wolfman". However, the record is not as mature in it's songwriting as is Trevor's last solo release "Can't Look Away"."
