Throughout their on-again, off-again relationship, guitarist George Lynch and singer Oni Logan have made some amazing music in the group Lynch Mob. The original vocalist for the band, Logan and Lynch split up after 1990s Wicked Sensation, finally reconciling and reuniting for 2009s Smoke and Mirrors. More problems arose, and the group has used several different singers over the past year and a half, but last week a new 4-song CD surfaced featuring Logan behind the mic once again. As with Wicked Sensation and Smoke and Mirrors, Sound Mountain Sessions is impressive at every turn.

Bass player Robbie Crane (Ratt, Vince Neil) and drummer Scot Coogan (Brides of Destruction) join Lynch and Logan on this release, providing the foundation on which the songs are built. Loganfs voice sounds as good as it ever did, and Lynch is still at the top of his game on his ESP guitar. From the snarling gSlow Dragh to the earworm-chorus of gCity of Freedom,h Lynch Mob has released a strong but short record that will leave the listener begging for more.

I have to admit. I did not think this would be all that. Just based on the fact that George seems to be pretty busy with so many projects. This is excellent though. Just great listening, but only 4 tunes, leaves you begging for more. Whats up with that? Well, I guess this is the lead in to something great. I read somewhere, that there is going to be an acoustic release of Lynch Mob. I personally, will be looking forward to an acoustic release. So, I guess this is just a taste of things to come and a teaser. They put a package together of a few songs and follow it up with something else. Awsome. It seems, lots of bands are doing this now and thats cool. The way the music industry is now, I guess you have to come up with different angles.
This effort is great. Glad to see Oni Logan belting out the vocals again. Love his vocal power. Having Brain Tichey onboard must be awsome. Another guy who seem to be very busy. How these guys fit all these pojects in is beyond me. In any case, all 4 tracks are great and dont fall short in any way.

love this EP. bought it at Lynch Mob show. could've bought it earlier, but i was kinda burned out on buying some of George's experimental stuff. saw the show, had to buy it, certainly not disappointed! Slow Drag and Sucka are great! George mentioned during the show that they had half of a follow-up full album 'in the can', so we can expect more of the same great stuff!

A solid collection of songs. My only objection is that an EP from these guys is way too short... Please give us more Rock 'n Roll Lynch Mob!

The sound on this is CD would have added even more to previous CDs. It's got a punch and natural sound that is impressive right away. The opener, Slow Drag is incredible. It lets you know who this band is and leaves no doubts. City of Freedom is my favorite or possibly second favorite next to slow drag. It depends on the day. I like the lyric & sentiment of City of Freedom. What Smoke and Mirrors seemed to say, this one asks more clearly. The rest of the songs on the disc are strong as well and that is great that there are no duds on a 4 song disc! I hope to hear more songs soon! Of course, the style and playing of George Lynch stands on its own and is strong and cool as ever. He is not just repeating what he's done in the past. He takes the listener along as only he can and his solos are still highlights no matter how great the song is on its own. The current line up is excellent. Great band. Logan was meant to work with lynch. They compliment each other extremely well.

Great songs, production, & talent! These guys sound as good as they ever did, & they captured that classic LM tone & vibe of the first couple albums. I wish George would stop making so many EP's though, & give fans some full length releases. They nailed it, just wish there was more!

I am a huge Lynch fan, but very disappointed in the lack of creativity. George has improved technically as compared to the early days, just feel like this release is an 'add on' to the original Lynch Mob recording (somebody just needed money).

I expected much more creativity from the guys.

It's George Lynch! So you know it's going to rock! It's only four songs but every one just kiss ass. George just seems to get better with time. Oni Logan's vocals make a perfect match with GL's guitar work. Don't miss this one!!
