You'd be doing yourself a huge favor to buy this cd.
Gordon Strachan
Not only is it the best JSS solo album to date and a terrific return to form, it's probably the best album Soto has released since his time with Talisman.
Justin G.
The vocals, music, songwriting, and variety of song types included with this set is excellent.
K-Rockman

I hadn't paid any attention to JSS since I saw him onstage with Yngwie Malmsteen back in 1985 on the Marching Out tour,but I sure am now.I watched the video for "Look Inside Your Heart" on Blabbermouth and wondered if the rest of "Damage Control" was as good.I'm here to tell you it definitely is.From the 1st track to the last this cd is like a breath of very,very fresh air.The arrangements,musicianship,songwriting and needless to say Soto's vocals are unbelievable.He really,really dug down into his soul on this album.You'd be doing yourself a huge favor to buy this cd.Every once in a long while a release comes along that smacks you upside the head and this lp is it!If you like good trad metal than you won't go wrong with this.Amen

Jeff Scott Soto is one of the greatest melodic rock singers of all time and Damage Control is his strong return to the hard rock style that he is known for. This is an album that Jeff Scott Soto had to make following his underwhelming previous album Beautiful Mess which left a lot of long time fans scratching their heads. Damage Control will leave nobody confused as it contains passionate melodic vocals, awesome guitar riffs and solos, and a huge production to back it all up. Highlights include the hard rocking opener "Give A Little More", the Talisman influenced sound of "Look Inside Your Heart", the memorable chorus of "Die A Little", and the amazing power ballad "Bonafide" which contains that trademark Jeff Scott Soto passionate vocal delivery. The deluxe edition of Damage Control is essential as it contains 3 bonus tracks that are killer including the strong rocker "Take U Down", the brilliant melodies of "Elena", and the heavy groove of "Afraid To Die". Despite the fact that Damage Control doesn't really forge any new paths for Jeff Scott Soto, it does put him back where he belongs as an elite artist of melodic rock. Damage Control is highly recommended to all Jeff Scott Soto fans but doesn't quite hit the heights of his best solo album Lost In The Translation or his previous amazing collaboration W.E.T.

All right! Melodic rock super-vocalist Jeff Scott Soto is back with a new solo album, and he's back doing the kind of melodic rock we all love him for! Damage Control is the album's title, and it's the fifth (if you count Love Parade) solo album from the one-time voice of Journey, Axel Rudi Pell, Yngwie Malmsteen, Takara and of course Talisman (among many, many other projects).

Soto's previous album (2008's Beautiful Mess) was a bit of a departure from the melodic rock sound, and he made a deliberate attempt to get back to that classic melodic rock sound on this album. Soto is backed by a host of talented supporting musicians here, including Dave Meniketti (Y&T), Casey Grillo (Kamelot) and Joel Hoekstra (Night Ranger), and that helps make Damage Control that much stronger an album. The songs on this album range from smooth AOR to bluesy rock to hard-hitting rock, but there's a great melodic undercurrent that holds them all together. Soto, as usual, sounds terrific here, bringing his full range and power as well as his considerable songwriting skills. Highlights include "Give a Little More," "If I Never Let Her Go" and "NeverEnding War," but the whole album is very strong.

Jeff Scott Soto fans will love Damage Control. Not only is it the best JSS solo album to date and a terrific return to form, it's probably the best album Soto has released since his time with Talisman. It's a melodic rock must-have, and a contender for best album of 2012.

Edition Notes: The Special Edition of Damage Control comes in a digipack and features three bonus tracks and a bonus DVD with three video clips and related video footage.

"Damage Control" is the brand new fourth studio album by renowned AOR singer Jeff Scott Soto; this review will be focusing on the characteristics of the limited/digipack edition of the album.

"Damage Control" is indeed a melodic hard rock album as they used to be made when significant budget was available. A max of 14 songs plus three promo videos complete Jeff's latest melodic rock offering. The singer has claimed that "Damage Control" is, in a sense, a collective of the majority the melodic styles he has experienced in his 30-year career. The opening track "Give a little more" and the title track that follows make direct reference to his band "Talisman" due to the distorted bass lines, down-tuned guitars and inventive choruses. Then comes "Look inside your heart" (the first promo video) is in line with his earlier solo singles like "Eyes of love".

From there onwards "Damage Control" draws towards adult oriented rock, recovering the standard tuning and more conventional `80s rhythm section. "Die a Little" is easily one of the most radio-friendly moments on the album being also major melodic. "If I never let her go" and "Tears that I cry" are more of the same great melodic rock that you would expect from JSS solo album, while "Take you Down" and "Krazy World" are another attempt at that groovy-rock side of Jeff's.

As far as the DVD goes, you get a 15-minute video of Jeff himself talking you through the process of recording "Damage Control" as well as uncovering the cirucmstances under which the songs and guest collaborations came to be. On top of that you get the three promo videos; "Look inside your heart" is the all-original video clip starring Jeff and "Night Ranger" guitarist Joe Hoekstra while Damage Control is put together by studio out-takes.
