SWEET & LYNCH - Unified (Review)

45%
 
This folks, is an example of how to deliver a momentum killing release. After the excellent debut, Michael Sweet and George Lynch looked to have formed a new alliance with lasting potential. But then they went and delivered this. The guys get all mystic and experimental on this album, which struggles to maintain any kind of flow or cohesive musical message. From hard rock to alt-metal to bluesy ballads and even some rapping on one track (before bursting into a Queen like chorus!).
 
It just isn’t very good. I don’t like most of the songs, or the styles used and it just seems all over the place. A long long way from the classy debut and I can just imagine the message from the label going back to these guys if they ever want to do a third album!
