Format:Audio CD
This is a diverse album that has it all, from powerful vocal tunes to crunchy modern metal songs to virtuoso guitar instrumentals. No weak track here, believe me. In fact, I think I was very lucky to put my hands on this CD, which came to me just by chance. So, let's review it song by song:
The album opens with the psychedelic intro "Memory Jack", which derives into the explosive instrumental "Love Power from the Mama Head". If you like Joe Satriani and/or Tony MacAlpine, you'll surely like these two tracks too. Nothing new there, but a worthy listening anyways - mostly if you are a guitar geek, as I am :-).
Then, track number three ("Flesh and blood") suddenly changes the overall mood. Being a thunderous song with some progressive/power metal touches, it reminds me the early Queensr˙che, or something like that. The potent vocals of Ray Gillen and the superb axework of George Lynch form a killer combination in this track.
The fourth track, "We don't own this world", has a glam/hair metal wave, but its vocals are also great and it sounds heavy and energetic. And its guitar solo is so brilliant! This track is a must, in spite of its commercial taste.
Then it comes the instrumental "I will remember", which have some neoclassic influences and has a sad atmosphere all along. I really enjoy this track because it's slow and beautiful. However, I always feel like if it wasn't the first time I listen to it - perhaps it somehow reminds me MacAlpine's "Tears of Sahara" (where Lynch also played as a guest musician).
But suddenly, another stylistic shift arrives. In "The Beast" 1 & 2 the band plays with attitude. Both "beasts" are plenty of crunchy riffs, grunge and heavy tones reaching for a more contemporary sound. Lyrics are intentionally shocking and punky.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good over all album July 19, 2002
By Ryan
Format:Audio CD
This is a well rounded album. It has 10 songs: 4 instrumental and 6 vocal. An exelent singer and weather its vocal or instrumental you crave you will get a great display of guitar. The only reason i gave it a 4 is because there are a few wierd things like in "the beast" you hear a voice in the beginning saying "i am the supreme love maker.....i make love till someone dies!!" I recomend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some good songs -- some not so good March 16, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I can't make up my mind on this CD. There are a variety of songs on this CD. The first couple of songs are similar to Dokken / Lynch Mob, especially Memory Jack. However, The Beast Part I and Part II quickly turn the album around to something darker. The songs don't do much for me and remind me a lot of stuff from Smoke This (Lynch Mob). I skip through those after the first time I listened to them -- horrible.
Glenn Hughes (Black Sabbath / Deep Purple) is in top form on Necessary Evil. The songs that he is on are some of the best on the CD. Tierra Del Fuego is almost a latin metal tune. Different, but worthy of listening to.
Simply put, if you are looking for real Lynch Mob or Dokken, look elsewhere. However, this isn't too bad and Lynch fans will be reasonably happy with this album.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good solo effort from a great guitar player August 28, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Some self indulgent stuff, but a good album if your a fan of Dokken or Lynchmob. Surprise of this album while George was auditioning vocalists for this album he included tracks from Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple) and Nelson (yes Rickey Nelson's kids)

5.0 out of 5 stars The Lynchman Rocketh January 12, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I have had a "hit-and-miss" experience when buying CD's with George playing on them -- whether it be with Dokken, Lynch Mob or George solo. Some of his efforts are definately more heart-felt than others. GL, along with such other West-Coast greats as Randy Rhodes, Jeff Watson, and Brad Gillis, came up out of nowhere in the rear-view mirrors of everyone else who were gawking at the skills of Eddie VH in the early '80's. For me personally, I was looking for an American metal guitar "hero" who could counter the likes of Britain's Glenn Tipton or Sweden's Malmsteen. Well, for me, this is the album where George rose to the occasion -- a definite shining moment for Old Glory in the metal field. George proves on this effort that he can go head to head with anybody in any category, and in some cases best them. With George it is always about finding the right tone, but on this CD everything comes together -- speed, composition, feeling, you name it -- GL lets it fly. Gor for it George, this is you in your element and when you're good there's none better!

5.0 out of 5 stars All hail Mr. Lynch!! May 9, 2012
By BamBam
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This album is an absolute Gem of artistic expression by George. I can't stop listening to it. I'm never regretful to purchase anything from this Man. Lyrics could have been better but all in all a masterpiece. The Guitarwork is thoughtful, passionate, soulful, and George always keeps you guessing with his intricate and melodic phrasing. Two thumbs way way up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dokken/Lynch/Pilson Fan June 25, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I purchased Sacred Groove from the used section of Amazon.com coz I had heard and read that it wasn't that great and after buying it I can safely say that it was well worth the used price (under $5). Although its not a great album as a whole, it still has fantastic individual tracks. The opening tracks,#1"Memory Jack",#2"Love Power From The Moma Head", spoils you into eagerly anticipating more of the same, so thats part of the let down, I'm sure, for most people but the next song, #3, is an instant classic, in my book, with a killer sound and Ray Gillen belting out his wonderful vocals. #5,"I Will Remember",is worthy of burning onto a "favorites" CD as is #8 "Not Necessary Evil" I mean who doesn't like Glen Hughes? He's almost like one of our founding fathers of hard rock! #9 "Cry of the Brave" is just as good, again with Hughes vocals urging you to crank it up and sing along. #10 "Tierra Del Fuego" is a very cool instrumental with a Spanish feel to it that makes you wanna clench a rose between your teeth, grab a sinyorita and do the tango!Nice close for the album. Unfortunately I can't compliment the other songs so I'll leave you to your own conclusions on them. But bottom line, if your a Lynch fan, you wont be disappointed especially if you get a good used copy for just a few bucks its well worth adding to your collection. Hope this helps my fellow music lovers!

5.0 out of 5 stars I Will Remember
Because of that track alone, this album gets 5 stars. There are songs that once you hear them, you connect with them somehow. "I Will Remember" is that song for me. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars not the best Ray Lynch
Ray Lynch has made better music. This CD has some good moments, but the entire collection seems uneven overall. If you are a die hard fan, then it's okay

3.0 out of 5 stars if for the guitar alone...
This is my favorite album of Lynch's outside of his Dokken work. The guitar work is just superb! And luckily 1/2 the songs are just instrumentals. Read more
