I was a bit cranky last week, waiting for various things to happen with the website transition. God it's good to be back. Didn't Gary Glitter sing a song like that? dogrun

If you've been a Facebook disciple, then this is the best way to keep in touch with Marcie Free, voice of the tried and trusted AOR machine Unruly Child. Though the combo of Free, Gowdy and Allison have kept quiet over the last few years (well, at least since 2010's awesome 'Worlds Collide), it doesn't mean they've been idle. Far from it. In 2014, the band have returned to recording music which they've kept to themselves on their own label: Unruly Records, of which you can obtain their music from CD Baby. This latest effort is technically the first part of two EP's, entitled 'Down The Rabbit Hole (Side One)', we'll look forward to the next instalment in due course then?

The Songs
Seven tracks. It's all smooth melodic rock, as evidenced on the swirling 'This Is Who I Am', that timeless voice from Free hits the right note everytime. 'She Can't See Me' is delivered at half-pace, but has a slow-burn quality about it. It reminded me of Beggars And Thieves, especially that slide guitar work. The title track 'Down The Rabbit Hole' has a bunch of interesting moments. Again, a half-paced tempo, with a good connection between verse and chorus. The lyrics read like something out of the TV series 'Once Upon A Time'. The longest track here 'For All We Know' is a meandering piece that flows along like a gentle stream. There's no sudden rush or cascading waterfall on this journey. Just sit back and drift along. There's a lot to like about the effortless melody of 'Breaking Hearts', so too the rambling 'Kindred', while the concluding pop rocker 'Say I Love You' is the nearest in style to AOR, and finishes up in style.

In Summary
A very likeable though smallish set from one of GD's favourite bands. I will admit though that it's not edgy, nor is there any real heavy vibe. Just a bunch of melodic tunes played well by a collective of great musicians. I'm sure there's something here even for the most discerning of melodic hard rockers!

Unfortunately, this is nowhere near as good as 2010's ''Worlds Collide''.
