The Oni fronted LM started well, buts its well documented that he was (back then) inconsistent in Lynch's view and Oni blew his voice during a pivotal show for the band being shown on MTV. Lynch wasn't happy and it showed at times.

When he was replaced with Mason, i'll be honest..at first I wasn't sure about some of his singing, and the LM record was a U-turn from the bluesy based up-dated 70's rock back to the more commercial DOKKEN-ish style. The drums and guitar sound were typical Keith Olsen of that time. I read almost immediately after (when GL was recording Sacred Groove) that Lynch wasn't that happy with the u-turn in style/sound/direction..and I believe that as he pretty much gave up on it from that point.

In hindsight, although LYNCH MOB record grew on me and I love a lot of the songs, I would've preferred more in the style of Sensation, a real classic.

As a side note..Glenn Hughes who did a lot of backing vox on LM, apparently according to Lynch did a quick pass on the tracks as lead vocalist, and by all accounts it was awesome. Lynch wanted Hughes's version of Tangled In The Web on the record, but it deemed a bad idea(to have one track with a different singer)!! So..in another world, Hughes might have been Logan's replacement! You can hear Hughes's backing all over that record.
