One of the most venerated “underground” guitarists in heavy rock music is Uli Jon Roth.  As one of the early-on members of the Scorpions before they hit paydirt, Roth has made a number of attempts to remain relevant in the music/artistic music scene, especially since the turn of the century.  His latest endeavor has been to re-record and “Roth-ize” a number of the Scorpions tracks he originally had a hand in creating from the albums Fly To The Rainbow, In Trance, Virgin Killer, and Taken By Force.

The release is a 2-CD set containing 19 total tracks. Nathan James is the featured vocalist (he performs commendably) and along with Roth and his supporting cast succeeds in offering a “freshened up” version of all 19 tracks (which benefit from modern sound production techniques).  However, this album comes off more as a true “cover band” release than a signature Roth release, mainly due to the voice of James … making for somewhat of a non-descript “ho-hum” presentation overall that will likely fail to motivate or captivate listeners.

    Dan is a former partner at Metal Express Radio, and also served as a reviewer, photographer and interviewer on occasions. Based out of Indianapolis, USA he was first turned on to Hard Rock music in the mid-1970s when he purchased Deep Purple's Machine Head as his first album. He was immediately enthralled with the powerful guitar sound and pronounced drumbeat, and had to get more! His collection quickly expanded to include as many of Heavy Rock bands of the time that he could get his hands on, such as Ted Nugent, Judas Priest, and Black Sabbath, to name just a few.
