Editorial Reviews

Lynch Mob is finally back in 2009 with Smoke and Mirrors, the record that all fans have been expecting since the release of their breakthrough album Wicked Sensation in 1990! After seventeen long years, vocalist Oni Logan and guitar wizard George Lynch found their way back together and again show their amazing abilities in some killer new Hard Rock tunes. Critics and fans alike praised their debut album for Logan's hook-laden vocals and Lynch's virtuoso guitar playing. Shortly after touring in support of Wicked Sensation, Logan and the band parted ways. Now reunited, Lynch Mob can do no wrong.

It's been 20 long years since we last saw or heard of the "real" Lynch Mob. A lot has gone on with George Lynch ever since the highly under-rated 1990 Debut Album: "Wicked Sensation" was released. That album featured the unique vocals of "Oni Logan", George Lynch playing at his prime, Anthony Esposito running the bass at his best, and "Wild" Mick Brown of Dokken with the Mob, just kicking it and making a rocking record. After that album was released, due to alchohol problems, Oni was kicked out of the band soon after the "Wicked Sensation" Tour and George moved on with "Robert Mason" who although was very good, didn't really have the chemestry that Oni and George had on that first album.

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.

Having never heard anything of George Lynch since his departure from Dokken in the late 80's other than when he came back for the brief Dokken reunion in the 90's, I didn't know what to expect with this one. I was a big fan of Dokken in the 80's, but after their first three albums I don't think they ever reached the same level again. I always put it down to Don Dokkens deteriorating voice and an the impact of grunge music on metal, but obviously I missed the greater point - George Lynch. Don't be fooled into thinking Dokken comparisons though because this album is a different kettle of fish altogether. Rather than big catchy hooks, mesmerizing guitar solos and high range singing, "Smoke And Mirrors" is more an album of rocking tunes that are big on riffs, groove and bluesy swagger.

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.

I am a huge George Lynch fan. I love his guitar playing. That said, this album, and I am reviewing this as an album, not a collection of individual tracks, is pretty darn weak. The effort really needed a producer with taste. The album is about 3 tracks too long and lacks a couple of ballads to break up the monotony. There are some great songs here. Smoke & Mirrors Let the Music be your Master, Madly Backwards, and Before I Close My Eyes are my favorites, but too many songs have the same tempo and tonal coloration.

Lynch Mob are a excellent band and this album has Oni Logan back on vocals and this actually grows on you! !!! Not as good as the first 2 albums but this isn't crap either!!! George Lynch is still one of the best guitarists out there!!!
And this gets better with each listen! !!!!!The songs are more groove oriented and sound pretty good too me!!!!!!

Absolutely LOVE this CD. I have been an epic fan since forever, and George Lynch is my favorite guitar player of all time. I enjoy his solo work and all his other projects, but Lynch Mob is my favorite. There's a magic about his playing and Oni's vocals together, and when this CD came out, I couldn't wait to pick it up. Smoke and Mirrors is one of my favorite cuts....I LOVE the acoustic signature on this song and just everything about it. Beautifully written and produced. 21st Century Man...ROCKS, and Time Keepers? OMG. This cut is just BAD to the bone!! The interesting textures on this one are the best....brilliant production here. Overall this CD just some of their best work and can't recommend it enough if you're a Lynch fan. LOVE it. :)
