Neon Alley

Review by Gary Hill

If you like your rock with a classic sound, you'll be interested in this. It you enjoy music that's not particularly challenging or original, but just plain catchy, you'll like this. It's a solid set of pop rock. It's entertaining for sure. It just doesn't seem all that unique. Still, this is a fun set to just rock out to.


This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2016  Volume 6 at lulu.com/strangesound.
Track by Track Review
That's How It Is

No frills rock and roll with some catchy hooks, this feels like something that would have been popular in the 1970s.

All I Want
There's no big change here. This is, if anything, even more pop rock oriented, though. I guess I could see comparisons to something like power-pop of Cheap Trick.
Jailhouse Rock
This take on the classic Elvis Presley hit is cool stuff. It's hard rocking and quite metallic in a lot of ways. I dig this a lot.
I Only Want to Be with You
More of a ballad, this is acoustic based but still manages to rock.
Let Your Lovin' Come Down
Old school rock and roll drives this tune. It has a 70s vibe, but a lot of the basis is older than that. In a lot of ways this makes me think of T-Rex.
Piece of the Pie
Here's another tune that definitely makes me think of power pop.
Got to Rock
Straightforward rock and roll is the order of business here. This isn't anything all that unique, but it's a fun tune.
'Til I'm Done
This is another that's more of a generic styled pop rocker. It's solid, but not anything all that special.
