Majestic SilverEye

Rated 4.33/5 (86.67%) (3 Votes)

If you want people to have a feeling for the musical era your band takes its influences from, naming it after the dominant format of that era makes sense. That would seem to be the thinking of the gents behind Ohio's Album. I reviewed the Zephaniah EP a few years back and now I have the opportunity to hear the follow-up, the full-length Majestic Silvereye. There are definitely 70s aspects to Album's sound as you can hear by the synthesized effects that you probably heard for the first time on a Steve Miller song. There isn't an over-reliance on that kind of studio wizardry, which is good. Majestic Silvereye opens with an up-tempo, upbeat corker in "Clash at Demonhead." Fast, mean and completely catchy, if every song on the album sounded like this it would be something to behold. Majestic Silvereye then proceeds to meander back and forth between Traditional Heavy Metal, Hard Rock and even touches on Stoner territory but not so much you want to turn it off. There are some cool riffs and catchy choruses here and there but nothing in the class of "Clash at Demonhead" though "Avalanche" comes close. Majestic Silvereye is a solid release that is not a step back from Zephaniah nor is it a big improvement, so if you liked Album's previous releases, you'll most likely enjoy this one.
