A summer, party platter!


Johnny Lima is back with another CD, "Livin' Out Loud",  after a short intermission and I have to say this is a really enjoyable album to listen to from beginning to end.  

It is fun and definitively a summer, party platter!  A bit more involved and technical than his earlier music showing a distinct progression in sound and music composition.  

I really enjoy the guitar riffs, the lyrics are easy to sing along to. One thing that is really impressive with Johnnys music is it is all original!  A lot of todays radio friendly style is to copy and borrow from another talent and call it your own, that is weak and unimaginative, only showing that your good with the computer but not music. Johnnys music rocks and judging from a post on his web site, the order for the new CD is through the roof.  

Many have compared him to Bon Jovi, I disagree it is more in the vein of Poison, though his influences run the gauntlet of many great bands. The energy that is released is phenomenal!  The CD consists of twelve tracks all running mid to fast tempo, with clean vocals.  Its hard to decide a favorite but possibly it would be #7, Gimme some Rock So I can Roll.
So, bring your friends this is gonna be an all-nighter!

rating: 8,5/10
