...the majority of the tracks are simply tailor made for 80s rock radio...A
really impressive package...
...each of the 15 songs has a personality and represents this time of music well
Silence is a superior rock album with roots in NWOBHM but showing a far more
commercial funky rock side ... This is a welcome release for an album that has
remained hidden for far too long.
of the interesting things about specialist reissue label Angel Air is that a
number of their releases are by artists who could be classed as "nearly men";
ones who almost made that all important breakthrough but for reasons of record
company politics, management incompetence, poor timing or simple bad luck it
never worked out. That could certainly be said of Notorious, the band assembled
by Robin George and former Diamond Head vocalist Sean Harris who cut these
recordings back in 1985 only to see them gather dust for two years by which time
their moment had passed ...
re-sequenced and expanded, the songs punch the bag from the title cut...'Radio
Silence' still remains a product of its time, a nice one with it.
you have enjoyed any of the other Robin George related releases from Angel Air
Records over the last year or two it sort of goes without saying that Radio
Silence is an automatic buy and well worth the money.
what an album this is...By the time you get to the third track, 'Arianne', a
commercial poprock monster of a song...you wonder why the execs ever thought any
of this needed fixing.
further interesting chapter in the colourful story of Robin George's vast and
eclectic musical journey ... well worth a listen.
A slight wear of the original tapes is apparent here and there, and although it is hardly exceptional, this collection of simple yet functional rock songs is pleasing to the ear, if pop rock is what you're after.
