War & Peace
The Walls Have Eyes
I'm glad I gave this album some time to grow on me – I'm a fan of Pilson, but don't necessarily love everything he does. He has a good ear for more updated, modern tones which is something I'm not always into.|
The new War & Peace album is the same. Much like Pilson's last project Lynch/Pilson, The Walls Have Eyes is a modern rock themed album, with darker, heavier rock than the lighter stadium rock of Dokken.
But where this differs from Lynch/Pilson, I think the songs are better and just that little bit more memorable. Let's be blunt – this album rocks big time and any fan of Pilson's work in general will already own this record and appreciate it.
For others it might need sampling first. There's a certain 70's flavoured Zeppelin vibe to a few tracks, but generally the music centers on a tuned down, dark and heavy modern rock feel.
But Pilson's song writing and vocals tend to have a melodic effect on the otherwise heavy material, making it more appealing.
I wasn't into this release at all to start with, but it's one of those albums that just gets better each listen and in the end I rather like it and rate it just a little better than the Lynch Pilson release.
That said, you will still have to be a fan of darker, modern tones to fully appreciate this.
