Background
Fans of the legendary Glenn Hughes will be pleased to hear that on Voodoo Hill he has returned to a full rock album. The project is the brainchild of Italian guitarist Dario Mollo, who made his mark with The Cage (featuring Tony Martin). Unsurprisingly the material is a mix of Deep Purple and Black Sabbath style hard rock.


The Songs
'Sensitive' provides a strong opener, a mid-tempo rocker with Glenn in fine voice. 'Disconnected' moves into heavier territory with a dark and moody riff. 'Golden One', an average ballad/rocker fills in time before the albums best track, the scorching rocker 'Spun In Lost Wages'. A shred lesson from Dario with Glenn doing well to keep up. From here on in it's a pretty average affair. Tracks such as 'Keep It To Yourself', 'Just Another Monday' and 'Black Leather' are nice enough but don't have anything to get your teeth into, mainly because everything starts sounding the same after a while.


In Summary
I was expecting quite a lot from Voodoo Hill, considering the calibre of those involved. This album does show that Glenn still has a great voice and Dario is a fine guitarist, but most of the material just doesn't get you going. For those of you who are huge Hughes fans, I'm sure you'll love it. For everyone else I'd give it a listen first.
