CHRIS LANEY'S last album, Pure, got a thumbs up from me so I was looking forward to reviewing his latest relase ONLY COME OUT AT NIGHT.
Once again we have a wonderfully crafted album full of stadium rock songs. Chris Laney had some special guests on his last CD but he has brought out the big guns for this one. We have on offer Bruce Kulick (KISS), Brian Robertson (Thin Lizzy, Motorhead), Conny Bloom (Hanoi Rocks, Electric Boys), Ian Haugland (Europe), Zinny Zan (Shotgun Messiah, Zan Clan) and Nalle "Grizzly" Påhlsson (Therion, Treat, Randy Piper's Animal).
Somehow in a short space of time Laney manages to do all his production duties for other bands (gaining awards nominations at the same time) and still turn out a great CD with strong songs. The riffs are present as is to be expected, as are the big choruses and harmonies and with an all star line up like this you can't really go wrong. The songwriting is great, the production is great and the musicianship is top notch!
If you are a fan of melodic hard rock and AOR then you should definitely check out Chris Laney's two CDs.
