5.0 out of 5 stars a classic album! February 21, 2006
By Paul
Format:Audio CD
This album definately rates up there in my top ten favourite. On first hearing, it sounds very much the same as the majority of hair metal bands around during that era. Im not saying that hair metal isn't great, but a lot of bands lacked originality in terms of their sound and production. But every now and again an album will just shine with uniqueness and quality, this is one of those albums. It reminds me a little of Mr Big's Lean into it album in terms of its ability to give you goosepimples and not wear off particularly quickly. It boasts emotional melodies, fast guitar riffs and Thomas La Verdi's unique vocal talent to make this a great listen. There is a good variety of songs, most containing powerchord choruses with catchy feelgood melodies and a superb atmospheric production. It is definately one of the best albums to come out of that era, but unfortunately they just weren't recognised as much as they should have done. If your a fan of well produced classic AOR such as giant, queensryche, Bad english, Winger etc, then you'll definately love this album :o)

4.0 out of 5 stars Overlooked, but not forgotten...by me anyways January 24, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Released in 1992, "Salute" had a snowballs chance in hades of ever making an impact on the music scene. The sad thing about when grunge hit was, that's when it seemed a lot of bands were making their best records! 21 Guns were no different, the album is first-rate melodic rock throughout, and could have easily made some headway in a differen time.

I'm sure the big draw for most people to this album is ex-Thin Lizzy guitarist Scott Gorham. I'm not a monster Lizzy fan, so that really didn't woo me in any way, but man do I love all these melodic rock from the late 80s/early 90s. 21 Guns follows essentially the Bon Jovi meets Def Leppard formula of catchy songs and big hooks, with some good production sprinkled in to even it out. The album is a pretty strong outing for the guys, but this record also has some filler to its possession as well. Those songs though weren't enough to weigh this album down though, and songs like "Knee Deep," "Just A Wish," and "These Eyes" make this more than your average melodic rock release.

For the going price of this record you should definitely check these guys out. It's more than worth the whole penny you'd spend guys! If you like bands like Steelheart, Slaughter or any other early 90s hard rock bands, I'd buy this album quick.

4.0 out of 5 stars First Class Melodic Rock August 28, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Released just as the glory days of hair metal were coming to a close, the debut album from melodic rockers 21 Guns didn't make much of an impact on the music scene. It seems like there were a lot of bands who debuted in 1991 and 1992 with very solid albums that would have otherwise been hits if they hadn't come just a little too late for the party. The debuts from Von Groove, Tyketto, and Tall Stories come to mind, as does 21 Guns' Salute.

21 Guns is probably most noteworthy for being founded by former Thin Lizzy guitarist Scott Gorham. The music on Salute has little in common with Gorham's former band though; instead it follows the AOR/melodic hard rock style that bands like Bad English, Damn Yankees, and Giant were delivering at the time. Salute is a very strong album from start to finish, and features some very catchy, and very well-written pop/rock songs. Album opener Knee Deep starts things off with a bang, and it just keeps going from there. Great songs, great guitar hooks, and great vocals...what more can you ask for?

This one's a winner folks. If you missed it the first time around, you owe it to yourself to track this album down, especially given its relatively low price. If you enjoy AOR, melodic rock, and/or hair metal, especially the bands listed above, you'll love 21 Guns' Salute.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stuart June 8, 2005
Format:Audio CD
21 Guns is Van Halen meets Giant with a little Bon Jovi mixed in. I really like this cd but I feel it has a filler song or two. But overall I enjoy Tell Me, Just A Wish & Marching In Time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gorem's project June 19, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album has more bright moments than the review below. The strength of the vocalist is actually pretty good. He is singing in a real vocal range as opposed to a falsetto or compaired to the "scream at the wall-dime a dozen" from this Genere' These Eyes has a HUGE chorus and is the steller track on this disc. Also Knee Deep, Walking the Edge, and And Marching in Time are solid solid tracks. The rest is pretty much in the standard AOR sense. But that should not take away fromthe fact that Gorem's playing here is VERY tight and the production value is crystal clear, which makes this record more ear friendly than Demo-lition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scott Gorhams kick at the pop-rock cat June 15, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Effectively put together around the axis of former Thin Lizzy luminary Scott Gorham this album is essentially the mans shot at some serious dollars via the medium of late 80's AOR/hard rock. However it came out in 1992 - one of the years deluged with second and third tier hair metal and in such a market it must have been hard to get press for yet another entry into an already heavily overcrowded pack. And in many ways that is a pity as this album is easily classy enough with a combination of sugar sweet pop cack and occasional heft from Gorhams six strings that, combined with the perfect-for-the-genre voice of Thomas La Verdi, really it should have been selling at least a few pancakes.

To specifics: the vocals of La Verdi really are spot on for this sort of overwrought power balladeering and good time loud rock 'n' roll. Currently I've no idea what happened to him after 21 Guns but I hope he got to enjoy singing for years to come. He injects all the expected moves of the genre into what he is doing and if any complaint is to be made it is that it would be hard to buy into him as a wheeling, dealing, wicked woman stealing debauched troubadour - but this G rated released rarely asks him too. In fact his puppy good looks were almost certainly one of the reasons for his being hired - in interviews Gorham enthused how the female audience was really going to like him (true! Try to track down some of the press interviews this band did!).

Musically it is all pretty smooth. It is a testament to how professional a project this was that everything down to the last note sounds planned. Gorham isn't suited to restraint all the time and while he keeps it all polite there is a heck of a lot of lively fun in a range of the louder tunes here such as Knee Deep and Little Sister.
