Kicking & Screaming
Released: Sep 2011
Label: Frontiers Records
Basically, the sound on Skid Row screamer turned Broadway and Gilmore Girls thespian Bach's 2011 album pins chugging remnants of late '80s L.A. hair-sleaze (definitely a "Welcome to the Jungle" rip or two in there) under an airy sort of late-Beatles melodic sense filtered through '90s ballad-grunge a la "Black Hole Sun" or Stone Temple Pilots. Bach's high hard pipes hold up okay, too, but songs tend to meander and outwear their welcome. And since none stumble into a chewy tunefulness on the order of, let's say, Skid Row's "18 and Life," the overall effect frequently honors bloat over crunch.
