Giving it all to the fans, veteran warbler reimagines his edge. Accompanied for many years by unsympathetic, despite their intent, instrumentalists whose painted-by-numbers backgrounds flattened his voice nuances, Graham Bonnet has taken a full responsibility of it now, so there’s a sense of freedom on this concert EP – offered for free via Facebook. Here’s why, while the singer’s still undoubtedly able to rock hard and heavy, it’s not RAINBOW classics “Lost In Hollywood” and “All Night Long” that signify the change – although the latter is tastily spiced up with additional vocals on choruses – but rather “Suffer Me” from the ALCATRAZZ lore.

Explaining the song message, a dedication to his mother, Bonnet imbues it with emotional phrasing, yet “Love’s No Friend” demonstrates a different kind of emotional abandon where the audience participation contrasts Graham’s desperation. In their turn, guitarist Conrado Pesinato and bassist Beth-Ami Heavenstone add colorful sway to “Since You Been Gone” and put a spring in the nocturnal swing of “Night Games” to support the singer’s panache. Point made on-stage, and with a new single "My Kingdom Come" proving creative fire burns bright for him, the brilliant belter makes a bid for the future. --- dmme.net

Graham Bonnet has had a busy past year or so, going on tour with his band, having his solo albums re-issued plus ones from his days in Alcatrazz and Blackthorne. Now we have this double CD delight, disc one is an all new studio album whilst the second disc features re-recorded classics from his past bands and solo work.

Opener ‘Into The Night’ could have come off Alcatrazz’s ‘Disturbing The Peace’ album, especially as the driving riff sounds a little like ‘God Blessed Video’. Graham Bonnet still has his distinctive rough edged vocal and the songs suit his singing style down to the ground. Lots of good hard rockers on here like ‘Dead Man Walking’ and ‘Strangest Day’ and no real offbeat lyrical themes (the Blue Boar service stops in the US have been sung about in the past!), although ‘Everybody Has To Go There’ mentions Main Street in the lyric, when it is about a UK seaside town.

The album is a real band effort as all bar one song are credited to all the band members, who include fellow Alcatrazz member Jimmy Waldo on keyboards and drummer Mark Zonder (Warlord/Fates Warning).

The re-recorded classics, as the disc is called, covers from Rainbow up to Impetrelli. Special mention to guitarist Conrado Pesinato who has some big shoes to fill here replicating songs originally featuring amongst others Ritchie Blackmore, Steve Vai and Yngwie Malmsteen. The Rainbow classics sound good, particularly ‘Eyes Of The World’. Liking the slight guitar solo changes on the Alcatrazz classic ‘God Blessed Video’, although ‘Will You Be Home Tonight’ somehow lacks the passion of the original. Elsewhere his big solo hit ‘Night Games’ and MSG’s ‘Assault Attack’ are other highlights.

Good to have Graham Bonnet back releasing new songs and these songs definitely hark back to his 80′s hard rock days of Alcatrazz. Fans of that band and hard rock in general will enjoy this one. ---Jason Ritchie, getreadytorock.me.uk
