Sweet & Lynch – Only To Rise Album Review: It’s been a bit since this melodic hard rock piece has been released, but we finally got our lazy asses together to rant about it.
So, who is Sweet & Lynch? Well foremost it is Michael Sweet (Stryper, ex-Boston) and George Lynch of Dokken and Lynch Mob fame. So, we have an excellent vocalist and a guitar player who can shred the bark off any tree here – sounds promising…
The opening track “The Wish” (official video below) is arena rock at its best, with great guitars and a catchy hook that makes you want to party and fist pump – well done, gentlemen! There is a nice variety of great hard rock tracks on this album, from the slow-tempo “Love Stays” to the up-tempo title track “Only To Rise”. There is definitely something for everybody who likes hard rock with good guitars.
