Icon47 Voodoo Hill - Waterfall




9 out of 10 from an early review of "Waterfall"

...the best album of the duo - they took their previous albums and combined the heavier aspects and the blues rock and made a magnificent album.

Received my Japanese import a day early yesterday

After a couple of run throughs, have to say it's another masterclass on how to ‪ROCK‬ from Glenn and Dario Mollo.

It's been a longtime coming, but well worth the wait. Wonderful to have déjà vu moments along the way too (reminiscent of Fused and others in places, so you'll understand what I mean when you hear it)

Aside from the outstanding songs which received the audio/video treatment early on, others worth a mention are "Underneath And Down Below", "Karma Go", "Evil Thing" & "Eldorado".

Overall, 4/5 stars for the base album - the Japanese Bonus Track was disappointing this time around... you get some orchestral movements at the beginning of the song, but after that, it's basically the same track! Would of preferred a vocal only version, as it's such a great delivery by Glenn.

...a couple more excellent early reviews

Quote:
There are no skippers here and no obvious filler material. Mollo is content to let melody override any guitar histrionics pretty much throughout, while Hughes comes across not only with the kind of professionalism you’d expect for a man with so many years in the business. Voodoo Hill is highly recommended listening for classic rock fans.

The album flows with non-stop classic riffs and superb musicianship. Voodoo Hill have delivered a very enjoyable slab of driving classic rock music. A strong musical force to be genuinely appreciated.

So, in a year lacking awesome albums, Voodoo Hill comes as a huge surprise.

Any idea where to find this in an actual store?

Best buy has it but online only. Amazon, NEH I'm sure.

Prefer to avoid shipping, and getting it myself

I'm in USA.

9/10

The production and overall lyrical and musical content of 'Waterfall' is colossal, due to inimitable craftsmanship and passion that can't be denied...

There’s groove, there’s attitude, but above all else, there are some terrific guitar driven rock songs, sung with an authority only Hughes can muster.
