Slow week for me, it's been all horse racing in Australia this week, with the Melbourne Cup meeting over four days. Back to GDM on the weekend.

Here's one out of left field, or Detroit Michigan to be exact. Tilt released one album as far as I'm aware titled 'Music' and it's good piece of collectible history and probably only found on vinyl in obscure little record shops scattered around America. I found mine in New Zealand so someone's done me a favour. Of the band members, only Doug Kahan has any sort of history, having played with Flash Kahan and more recently DC Drive (with members of Detroit AORsters Adrenalin). Tilt's sound is definitely period seventies hard rock, and bands such as Fortress, Doc Holliday, and on their quieter moments Trillion (without the pomp tendencies) all spring to mind. The band were signed to Parachute Records, which appears to be a Casablanca Records subsidiary.

The Songs
The opener 'Baby Do You Like It' has some unnervingly similar rhythm guitar lines to Carlos Cavazo (in his pre Quiet Riot days with the L.A band Snow). This is a great intro as this one really rocks! 'Get It Again' is a song tailormade for Bruce Brookshire (Doc Holliday) as this is as vocally gruff as it gets, sort of rough hewed southern flavoured rock. The brakes go on with 'You're Just What I've Been Looking For' a piano based ditty which has a Trillion (first album) flavour to it. Mid west rock 'n' roll is the order of the day with 'Do You Rock And Roll' and it ain't too far removed from seventies era Head East. Another great track is the pomp sounding 'Indigo' again Trillion is used as a reference point. On the other hand 'Bloody Murder' is a psychedelic romp from the sixties, such is the predominant organ work going on in the background.

In Summary
Again, like many albums reviewed on the site, one for collectors only, and I know there are a few of you here.

My feel is that this is an overall very average album, nothing much to write home about. Still worth checking out, purely because it actually does hold some two of the greatest moments in rock'n'roll: Get It Again and the guitarsolo/pounding bass-filled Bloody Murder.

Tilt's Music has a good mix of styles ranging from pomp to melodic rock to southern rock to AOR. Intense guitar riffing on the rambling opener 'Baby Do You Like It' is quite good and then 'Indigo' has some nice classy pomp moves. 'Bloody Murder' is a great change up with creative vocal treatments and jamming guitars. Nice obscurity.
