These reviews of older albums will tend to be shorter as they are more to just try and shed light on some of these criminally underrated and unknown albums.

Saints & Sinners were yet another band trampled down by the ushering in of the grunge era. Originally put together in 1991 by vocalist Rick Hughes (ex-Sword), this Canadian band was very short lived. They released this Aldo Nova produced album in 1992 and disbanded in 1993. It actually produced three singles though between ’92 and ’93. Walk That Walk, Takin’ Chances and We Belong. Oddly they are not close to the strongest tracks on the album in my opinion, still very good tracks all. It is a real shame these guys never got the chance to release more material, I would love to have more music from this band as this is just a hell of a record.

Hughes has a tremendous voice and sounds terrific throughout the record. The band has a great sound to it and gives a good mix of guitars and slight keyboards not unlike the “Mean Streak” era of Y&TJesse Bradman, the keyboard player here, did a short stint with Night Ranger in 1988 and was the keys player on what I consider to be their best album, “Man In Motion”.

It is a very strong album start to finish and worth a purchase. Unfortunately it is out of print and difficult to find and fairly expensive when you do. An online pay and download site may be your best bet here. Worth the effort to find though. Very highly recommended.

Standout Tracks:

Shake.

Rip It Up.

Walk That Walk.

Kiss The Bastards.

Wheels Of Fire.

Lesson Of Love.

Frankenstein.
