John Vlassic – Love For Rock

3 Stars

Need more cowbell? In his opening song, which is also the title track, John Vlassic hits it hard with a nice classic rock ‘n roll song with precisely the proper amount of cowbell. It’s a nice reminder of what good rock is. Moving on, he rolls into bluesy riffs through the next couple of songs. When you’ve gotten comfortable jamming to the classic rock sounds he throws you for a loop in “the Endless Threat” where it becomes more electronic rock, gets a little darker and stays that way in the following songs. It’s a good album that keeps you rocking along and interested. I am intereseted to listen to what loops he’ll throw at us in the next album.

After receiving significant feedback from my article about Tinder (also known as the traveling business man’s secret best friend), I was quite certain that I needed to explore another dating app. This time, I wasn’t going to be the oneContinue Reading
