Axel Rudi Pell - Sign of the Times

Axel Rudi Pell has been going on for more than thirty years now, having produced albums almost every other year. The high work ethic of the German guitarist and the fact that he’s managed to hold on to for many years to the golden vocal strings of one Johnny Gioeli, who came in succeeding another great such as Jeff Scott Soto, along with some pretty seminal albums dropping around that time has helped propel and solidified his career at least throughout Europe.

Almanac - Rush of Death

I must say that after witnessing the serious lineup changes, which left only Victor Smolski (G, K) and his LGO partner Jeannette Marchewka (female vocals) in place, and included losing both David Readman and Andy B Frank as vocalists and some really poor reviews, I begun listening to this album with some trepidation to say the least if not a bit of a negative bias.
