Producer/songwriter Ian Eskelin is a very busy bee. He has produced and co-written albums of Stellar Kart, Everyday Sunday and Krystal Meyers to name a few. Now he is back with “his” alternative rockband All Star United. This is their first effort in almost five years. This album is surely the most consistent one of them all and a creative highlight. Straightforward catchy rocksongs have been their trademark for years now, but this album is much more stable then their previous albums. Faves of mine are “Love and radiation”, “Before you break my heart”, “We could be brilliant”, “There’s gotta be something”, “In a world where nothing’s wrong (you’re alright) and “Like hallelujah”. If you haven’t listened to this band before, now is the best moment to get acquainted!
Ronnie James Dio left Rainbow because Blackmore wanted the band to go into a more radio friendly direction, Graham Bonnet replaced Dio on the following "Down to earth" that included the Top 10 hits "All night long" and "Since you´ve been gone".
