JEFF SCOTT SOTO “Damage Control” – 5 Reasons To Buy This Sterling Album
JEFF SCOTT SOTO – This past March 23rd, Jeff Scott Soto’s fifth full-length album, Damage Control, was released via Frontiers Records. Melodic Hard Rock, 80′s Arena Rock, Rock and AOR fans should find no problem embracing the songs on Damage Control; I’ve embraced them and I will tell you why:
01 – Jeff’s voice. Whoa. Harmonious, melodic and so damn smooth. Rockin’ cool smooth. If I can put Joe Lynn Turner on a pedestal all of my Rockaholic life, then Jeff Scott Soto shares that same pedestal.
02 – The Songs. It always comes down to quality and I don’t care if it’s Extreme Metal or Melodic Hard Rock that I’m listening to… the songwriting has to be standout. Damage Control could easily have been titled: 11 Standout Songs.
03 - Inspirational. Wether it’s the lyrics, the vibes or a combination of both, Damage Control makes me feel good and feeling good is something I usually invite into my Rock ‘N Roll soul. Give A Little More and Look Inside Your Heart are my top two exhilarating listens, on this album of melodically fortified and memorable Hard Rock.
04 – Quality Musicianship. Um, do you think Jeff Scott Soto would surround himself with anything less? This is an artist who has Yngwie Malmsteen, Talisman, Journey and Trans Siberian Orchestra on his prolific resume, therefore, Damage Control is an album that’s built-to-last and stand the test of Rock ‘N Roll time.
05 – One Of The Best. In my Metal opinion, Jeff Scott Soto is one of the best male vocalists I’ve ever listened to. It’s not all about Heavy Metal with Jeff’s career and his voice can carry through a range of music genres. Damage Control is a significant piece of work for Jeff Scott Soto; this album doesn’t go over any Pop Rock deep end and it Rocks like 80′s Journey meets Bent Out Of Shape era Rainbow.
