Radakka - Malice and Tranquility - Century Media 1995 Reviewed by: Nailer
All in all its not a bad disc. Songs are slightly heavy and Jon Dobbs has a fantastic singing voice sounding like a cross between Don Dokken and Circle II Circle/Ex-Savatage lead Zak Stevens. The melodic music is fairly similar to Dokken or even the offshoot Lynch Mob, but it fails to keep a consistency throughout.
The first four songs have a great late-80's feel, but by the 5th song, the CD switches gears into a heavier mode and falls apart like a movie with too many writers, directors and producers putting their opinions into a script. So different are the middle batch of songs, that I wonder if outsiders had a hand in the choosing and arrangement of numbers. By the last couple songs, it's back to the style of the first which were my preference .
Bottom Line: Melodic hard rock that works with one style, but not both.
Score: 7 of 10.
