Dennis DeYoung – 26 East:Volume 1

Dennis DeYoung – 26 East:Volume 1

Label: Frontiers Music

Release date: May 22nd, 2020


To set things straight: During the last twenty years since he was fired from STYX, DENNIS DEYOUNGs music has sounded more like his original band than the material from the remaining members. The guy responsible for another fantastic record from the  “Elder Statesman Of Pomp Rock“ is none other than the next door living JIMI PETERIK, who came up with the decisive kick-off. And the former SURVIVOR mainman let DEYOUNG put everything in which had made him become a superstar. Bombast, pomp and those great, sometimes syruppy melodies we’ve loved for more than 40 years now. Some extremely heavy guitar work is on offer as well – what more can a rock fan ask for? Lyric-wise the CD is dealing about DEYOUNGs youth in Chicago and his decision to make music not only as a profession but his vocation. Musically the record starts, where “Paradise Theatre“ has ended almost four decades ago. The duet “To The Good Old Days“ with JOHN LENNON’s son Julian shows his deep worship for THE BEATLES. “26 East” definetely is the best album STXY never made since “Kilroy Was Here“. The only reason preventing the top score is the fact, that I don‘t know the complete material from “26 East“. The follow-up is eagerly awaited!
