Jimi Anderson Group: Longtime Comin'

Scottish AOR vocalist Jimi Anderson has been plying his trade in melodic rock circles for a fair few years now, most notably with tribute band A Foreigners Journey who have gigged the length and breadth of the UK. He is also involved with the Legends Of AOR project that tours across Europe. As the album title suggests, for this latest release Jimi has finally gotten around to issuing an album under his own name and for influences you need look no further than the aforementioned bands with some Bad Company, Whitesnake and Thunder thrown in for good measure. Jimi has been supported on the album by fellow Scottish musicians Sandy Jones (guitar, bass, drums) and Greame Duffin (guitars) who is best known for being the long-time unofficial member of 80's/90's pop act Wet Wet Wet.

Anderson possesses the sort of melodic rock voice that really makes the listener stop what they are doing and take notice and certainly he could draw favourable comparisons with Brian Howe, Danny Vaughn or Jeff Scott Soto. Up tempo punchy rocker 'Same Old Song' kicks off the album and what follows is a mix of songs that both follow in a similar vein plus a sprinkling of mellower tracks including 'Spread It All Around' and 'Better This Way' and the stand-out power ballad 'Where Do We Go From Here' all of which highlight that incredible voice. There are some terrific and memorable moments here and perhaps after all the years of paying tribute to classic artists it is time for Anderson to step into the spotlight under his own guise; this album proves he certainly possesses the talent to do so.
