John Corabi is one of those guys, that I always root for, to break through. The guy is a major talent, but for some reason, even though he's had a few breaks, has never seemed to hit it big. Needless to say, when he has a release, I'm definitely gonna check it out. His latest release, is a best of, of sorts, done acoustically. John has dug out some of the best tunes he did with The Scream, Motley Crue and Union to make his new album Unplugged. As a bonus there are 5 new tracks to sink your teeth into.
Corabi just has one of those voices that can fit in any scenario. He can scream tunes out with distortion and come off very tasteful when unplugged. I'm generally not a fan of acoustic records, but this one was fun to listen to, because Corabi does such a nice job with the re-interpretations of these classic tunes. The classics are good, but don't forget about the new tunes either, because they are strong as well. A very enjoyable listen.
Bottom Line: Corabi showing that he still has the chops. A solid mix of some re-done classics as a few new gems. For fans of solid acoustic rock, this is right up your alley.
Standout Tracks: Love (I Don't Need it Anymore), Man in the Moon, Loveshine and Crash.
