RAISING SAND's debut CD ALL OUT WAR is straight down the line classic rock. I'll be honest and say that it isn't really my thing but I can hear why it would appeal to others, which can only be a good thing from a reviewer's perspective.
Vocalist TJ has an amazing voice, good range but also rough and ready. The rest of the band are as tight as a tight thing and they provide a really solid background to showcase TJ.
The whole CD has a nice rhythmic groove about it. Think Zeppelin meets early Aerosmith on steroids. Upbeat songs with a bouncy feel to them.
