After a Dokken reunion, and a load of solo albums and albums titled with the "Lynch Mob" name that didn't really give it justice, George Lynch has finally given the fans what they've wanted for so long, yes, he's back with Oni Logan at the lead and man, just listening to all these tracks shows that the chemistry is clearly back and rocking as hard as ever.
I'm not going to bother reviewing every track, as "All" and I mean "All" the tracks on this album are either very amazing or "Exceptional". But, I will give you the highlights that will just hit you in the face from the moment you hear it.
21st Century Man: Wow, you know that feeling you get when you're at a concert and the band is finally going to come out, and next thing you know they come out and the hairs on the back of your neck stick up? you'll get that feeling immediately after you pop this disc in. The Track Rocks from Top to Bottom and Lynch is almost trying to tell you that he's going to rock you're ear drums.
Smoke and Mirrors: This bluesy title track is just amazing.Read more ›
The album packs the best 1-2 punch of the year in my opinion with the great opening rocker "21st Century Man" followed by the ultra-cool bluesy title track "Smoke And Mirrors". These songs are both so good that I can't decide which one I like best. I'm not convinced that as far as album sequencing goes "Lucky Man" should come next. A slower paced rocker with weaker lyrics, I think it's probably one of the weakest songs on the album, yet it has grown on me with more listening. Luckily the following rocker "My Kind Of Healer" has more balls and is a welcome return to that bluesy swagger, but I can't help thinking it would have been a better choice for track 3 to give the album that triple punch opening that could have blown people away.
"Time Keepers" is more metal with intensity mixed with a great groove which results in a cool vibe. "Revolution Heroes" brings back the swagger again, and while it isn't as good as the bluesy songs previously mentioned, it's still a good song.Read more ›
And this gets better with each listen! !!!!!The songs are more groove oriented and sound pretty good too me!!!!!!

I am a hard core Lynch fan. I expected a lot more from his playing since he has taken his creativity to another level since prior Lynch Mob recordings. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Greg H

One for Lynch Mob fans. Love George's playing and songwriting. Couldn't be better voice fitting into that music, than Oni's.
Beautiful soulful melodies.
The talent is all over this project, but the songs seem more forced. Nothing stayed with me after the first listen. Might come back to it later.Published on January 15, 2013 by Mustang Morgan
Love Oni Logan's voice. This is a great album make no mistake. The person giving this one star must have been hoping to hear some Celine Dion and got disappointed with real rock... Read morePublished on March 17, 2012 by J. Sipiceanu
George Lynch proves the best way to fight music pirates is to produce a craptastic album. Seriously, I think this is possibly the worst collection of crappy songs ever released on... Read morePublished on November 23, 2011 by Davey
