This is an essential purchase for any serious rocker who likes it loud and boisterous.

I've been a fan of Cannock-based classic rockers Piston for some time now as they are extremely hard-working and ever-present on my local live circuit. With that in mind I find it hard to believe that this is the band's debut release; it's been a long time coming but well worth the wait! From the opening riff to the final note this album is a stunning and exciting experience, and actually they've managed to capture both the energy and the power of their live presence onto this record.

For this album the group have evolved their sound a little bit, coming across a touch less retro than I've heard in the past, and this record places them amongst other New Wave Of Classic Rock bands like Black Stone Cherry and Greta Van Fleet.

This is rambunctious, energetic Rock 'n' Roll and the entire album is all about bouncy, punchy choruses. It captures your attention instantly and demands that you play it loud! It has low-slung rhythms which pump the Blues into every riff, there are hooks all over the place with vocal whoops and plenty of inspiring guitar licks. I've always enjoyed Rob Angelico's raspy gravel vocals which contain a tonne of power.

There's no studio trickery involved so fully expect what you hear on this record to be as strong, if not stronger, when you see Piston live. He's a phenomenal vocalist who definitely deserves wider recognition.

As good as Angelico's vocals are, it's those low-slung guitar riffs from Jack Edwards which provide the infectious energy that permeates you from every track. He delivers riffs that grab you by the throat and demand you to move! While this album is all about the Rock, as exemplified on 'One More Day', I want to quickly mention the solitary ballad 'Carry Us Home' as a true highlight!

I've seen these guys live, and they're the real deal and always put on impressive performances. The songs on this release were made for the live arena (as you'll hear) and this group can deliver the goods live; you always know it's going to be a party when you see them on stage which I can't recommend enough. Piston continue the tradition of awesome British Hard Rock bands like Thunder and Led Zeppelin, and they've created an album of British Rock at its finest! This is an essential purchase for any serious rocker who likes it loud and boisterous!
