Alcatrazz – Born Innocent

Born Innocent
Silver Lining Music
July 31, 2020

The English American Band formed in 1983 by Graham Bonnet, Jimmy Waldo & Gary Shea are back with us after 34 years of hiatus. After 1986’s Dangerous Games, this would be the first release.

I was privileged to review this masterpiece of an album, This is an album meant for the hardcore Heavy Metal Maniacs from the late 70’s to the early 80’s. The boys have brought us back with a storm of yet another greatness in heavy metal history.

Talking about the Album Art, It’s brilliantly worked out Prison outlook of Alcatrazz, surrounded by the cold cold water and a dark moon above it, with prison bars, Can we say the boys are out of Prison, the band will have to answer to this question, ha ha

The entire album is so amazingly worked out, wonderful songwriting, great guitar works, and phenomenally arranged music throughout the album.

Graham Bonnet’s vocals range still stands tall, a legend on his own, man has taken us back to an era, just like back to the 80’s classical metal era.

Joe Stump’s guitar works are notably amazing, with some magical works in most of the songs in the album

I would recommend Classic heavy metal heads to have a good listen to this album, a must for their collectibles. that should not miss out of your shelves.

Thanks Alcatrazz for putting up an amazing album this year, We are Born Innocent.
