REVIEW : Frank Vestry – My Collection (Label: Lions Pride Music, Release date : 30 March 2020)

For those who love quality melodic hard rock/AOR, the name of Frank Vestry is no stranger to them. "My Collection" is the artist's comeback album/compilation and it's going to be released through Lions Pride Music. 

The new release features music from the bands/projects of Marcello / Vestry, Last Temptation, Laneslide, Devias, Burning Starr and more. For sure, this one is a great oportunity for those who aren't familiar with Frank Vestry to discover some timeless and great tunes. 

As Frank Vestry states : "Without a doubt, this will be my best album to date and the one that I am most proud of. The music is comprised of so many different elements that there is something for every musical taste. " and continues by saying : "I’ve had the privilege and pleasure of working with some of the best-known guitarists and some of the finest musicians I’ve ever known. I hope you enjoy their talents as much as I do as you listen to these selections that will hopefully be a winner for everyone". 

Some of the guests that appear here (hold your breath...) are Rob Marcello, Bruno Ravel, Jon Levin, Greg Smith, Erik Martensson, Michael Bormann, Mike Pont, Ross “The Boss” Friedman, Rich Fazio, Ronnie Giordano and Larry Sacchetillo to name a few. 

The only thing that I would like to add here is that each and every single track here is a true winner! All killers and no filler in sight! Every single moment is filled with amazing melodic lines, memorable hooks an choruses, great arrangements and, most of all, every moment is filled with Vestry's soulful voice.
