REVIEW : Jimi Anderson Group -- Longtime Comin' (2017)

Jimi Anderson is a musician that was raised up with bands such as Whitesnake, DIO, Rush and Deep Purple and with his new album, "Longtime Comin'", he honors his longtime heroes. In his music career, Anderson played in numerous live gigs, sang in several tribute bands and nowadays the time has come to release his own music under the name of Jimi Anderson Group.

My first impression, after the first spin of "Longtime Comin'", is that Anderson has an amazing voice and performs each and every song here with heart and passion. All of the tracks here are well-written and there's an 80's classic rock feeling that makes the final result a pleasant listening all the way.

The opening tune of the new album, "Same Old Song" is pure delight! A 'punchier' melodic hard rock gem filled with Anderson's smooth vocal lines, a solid rhythm, a catchy hook and chorus line and there you have a killer song!! Excellent!! "Let's Get Serious" includes more groove, a bit of Whitesnake 'magic' in it and boom...another highlight out of the new record. "Feel Like Letting Go" is a beautiful pop-rock track with a killer chorus in it and in "Better This Way" Anderson delivers a sentimental and sweet ballad. In "Welcome To The Revolution" and "Higher Than Higher" the 70's, early 80's, hard rock elements make their appearances in a such a great way while in "Necessary People" we have another cool and groovy rock song!

A passionate, powerful, beautiful and 'down to earth' rock album with some excellent performances by Jimi Anderson that makes this record a must have for every rock fan out there!! 

Rating : 8,5/10
