Whilst not straying too far from the path stylistically, the long-serving Floridian’s sound is determined as ever on ‘The Last Hero’.
It turns out that title is perfectly suited to their larger than life hard rock. ‘Show Me A Leader’ and ‘My Champion’ swell with passion; all big riffs, rallying choruses and uplifting lyrics. And the Kennedy / Tremonti partnership remains solid with their intelligently arranged and complimenting melodies.
Everything’s here from a band that still pack arenas, whilst there’s enough progression to ensure they’re ahead of their peers.
