Black Swan–Shake The World

Frontiers are always trying to feed us a diet of musical collaborations with a variable success rate. This time we have Robin McAuley (MSG), Jeff Pilson (Dokken), Reb Beach (Winger, Whitesnake) and Matt Starr (Mr Big) coming together for another ‘super-group’. My expectations weren’t that high and the first and title track did more gentle prodding rather then shaking for me. However, ‘Big Disaster’ is a great track with a big hook. Very few tracks get into my head these days, but Big Disaster has managed it. I hear Pull era Winger in the rest of the album, which is no bad thing.
