Lauren Anderson: Burn It Down - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Burn It Down, from Lauren Anderson and it's a smokin' blues rocker with a solid blend of bluesy ballads. Opening with title track, Burn It Down, Lauren Anderson on vocal leads the way with stinging guitar work by Dan Wecht, and with Hutch on bass, Johnathan Smith on keys, and Matt Doctor on drums. Slinky, Soul Is Mine is dominated by super tom tom feel by Doctor, Smith on organ and Wecht on slide guitar. Anderson really works her voice nicely against the soulful feel of the track making it one of my favorites on the release. Albert Castiglia makes a guest stop on Zombie Blues really getting the fretboard going on this high energy rocker. Soulful, I Know, shows a terrific combination of Anderson's vocal and songwriting skills creating, in my opinion, the top radio track on the release. Lumbering, Hit The Spot has a strong funk rocker with a strong melodic hook and super guitar lead by John Salaway. Another strong radio track is Fool with it's rhythmic feel, strong vocal melody and a nice guitar solo by Wecht. Wrapping the release Like A Woman, with it's heavy bottom, nice guitar punctuation by Wecht and another strong vocal effort by Anderson. This is a solid release with a cool blend of radio and rockers.
