Helix - Vagabond Bones

It was quite amusing to receive this for review as I hadn't realised Helix was still going. Formed in 1974 vocalist Brian Vollmer has been the only consistant member through a revolving door of other band members over the years.

I have to admit that I was amazed with Vagabond Bones. From my previous meetings with them I hadn't been that impressed but this is a good solid album. Hidden amongst the tongue in cheek (hopefully) rock cliches are some great tracks.

Vollmer still has a great voice and the rest of the band are on fine form. It's a bit of a party album in places with some fantastic riffs and big choruses!
