CD-REVIEW RICHIE SAMBORA-AFTERMATH OF THE LOWDOWN-“EVOLUTION FROM THE INSIDE OUT”

 

Ritchie Sambora’s life and musicanship is evolving from the inside out and on his new album Aftermath of the Lowdown Sambora lays it all on the line with an authentic gutsy performance.

Folks, this is what rock albums are supposed to sound like.

On anthemic rockers like Nowadays, the ripping Burn That Candle Down, Learning How To Fly With a Broken Wing and the mid tempo burn of Taking A Chance On The Wind Sambora sings his ass off backed by a studio band that simply kills. 

Basically it sounds like Sambora pulls it from the inside, the band feels it, works their chops and you press the record button.

Elsewhere on Seven Years Gone, You Can Only Get So High and the gorgeous Every Road Leads Home to You Sambora ups the ante lets you inside to his private thoughts and world.  The crushing feelings he exposes on these songs is at once redemptive and fulfilling. 

There is a new committment Sambora displays on Aftermath of the Lowdown and with solid conviction he has made a career defining album.

This album will make my top ten list in 2012

Sambora and his great band play Toronto this upcoming Saturday night October 20th.  Watch for a searing performance.
