LAYLA ZOE-GEMINI-“DEEP POWERFUL AND KICKING ASS” NEW ALBUM-REVIEW BY JOHN EMMS

Layla Zoe’s new double album Gemini is a deep and powerful original recording which to my ears is the best of her career.

The immediate and true sincerity of the first two songs “She Didn’t Believe” and “I’ll be Reborn Blues” on Disc 1 titled Fragility is startling.

The gutsy power of The Deeper They Bury Me and the tender I Can’t Imagine My Life Without You offer the two sided coin of Layla’s great voice.

On Disc 2 tilted Courage Zoe opens up the fluid and dynamic electric power on the track Weakness which is pure rock emotion.

This is followed by the riff heavy track Automatic Gun and stunning Dark World.

This new rock vibe is a good fit for Zoe and simply kicks ass.

The Hendrix vibe of Ghost Train and the title track should be all over rock radio.

Lord knows this should be a career changing album for Layla Zoe.

Substitute all the covers of classic blues songs on stage because these songs should be a focus.

Sensational guitar and production by Jan Laacks.
