I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Memories, from The Cell and it covers a lot of ground. Opening with Still In Love With Her, a solid rocker, The Cell exhibits strong roots with a great bass line, tight drums, snorting guitar riffs, cool piano and horns. Blues Communion stirs a taste of metal into the rock flavored blues. Deep male vocals and female backing blends nicely with slide guitar and an ominous bass line and harp. Very cool. With a definite country flavor, Rusty Girl features female lead vocals and nicely blended horn and slide work. A definite radio track. Moody Blue has a nice, bluesy, ZZ Top kind of feel. A cool key interlude and hot blues guitar riffs make this one of my favorites on the release. With a bit of honky tonk, Rollin Man has a cool feel and solid piano work. A nice walking bass line and well placed vocals give this track real meat. Leslie West's The Cell, stays tight to the original, a heavy rocker. Wrapping the release is Greg Allman's Midnight Rider, a quiet almost acoustic soft rocker with nice rhythm, vocals and slide guitar work. I cool conclusion to a solid release.
