Under Suspicion - 2001 Under Suspicion


UNDER SUSPICION - UNDER SUSPICION (2001, FRONTIERS)
Jeff Adams - vocals, bass
Peter Roberts - guitars, keyboards
Klay Shroedel - drums, keyboards


Background
Another album/project borne in the studio is this trio Under Suspicion. I'm sure that fans of Seventh Key and Steelhouse Lane will take to this CD like rich fat-cats take to Iraqi oil. The only thing Under Suspicion have in common is the fact that this is very slick.. musically speaking.. just like oil huh? The three members have a prior history: Shroedel as a drummer is well known in Film Score circles, plus of course he helped produce Jimi Jamison's 'Empires' album. Peter Roberts is a producer too, plus a studio owner. The fact that he is one wicked guitar player cast from the same mold as Mike Slamer says it all really. Not only that, he is a prolific songwriter with a heap of credits. and significant ones they are too. Then there's singer and bassist Jeff Adams. Vocally he sounds like across between John Schlitt (Petra), Keith Slack (Steelhouse Lane) and Larry Baud (USA, Red Dawn, Network), and the fact that he's been involved with Mickey Thomas and Starship says a lot about his ability. It's easy to see why Roberts and Shroedel got goosebumps when they first heard him! For a trio, they sure know how to sound bigger than big. Their sound is hard-edged guitar rock similar to those two bands we talked about at the start.. Seventh Key and Steelhouse Lane. Overall the album is a good package, and after a few listens the CD is still hanging about my CD player, rather than back on the shelf! That says something..

The Songs
A good mix of edgy cutting guitar focused tracks ('Love Without A Net', 'Come Tomorrow', 'Destination Unknown' and the rather Ten sounding 'Traveler Of Time'), plus a bevy of ballads.. not too many but enough to provide a contrast ('Hold On' and 'I Will Live'). Two duets are included: 'End Of The Game' sees Kip Winger return to the HR fray, he was last seen on 1993's 'Pull' album by his band Winger. Mickey Thomas from Starship appears on the excellent 'Fly', and his vocal is oh so easy to identify!

In Summary
Under Suspicion is one of those CD's which will (like a fine wine), get better with age. It was a great coup by Frontiers to release this when they did, but don't let that put you off. Certainly easy to obtain, so if you pick it up for a bargain on Ebay, you won't go wrong!

Track Listing:
01 Welcome To My Life
02 Love Without A Net
03 End Of The Game (duet with Kip Winger)
04 Come Tomorrow
05 Hold On
06 Just Your God
07 Fly (duet with Mickey Thomas)
08 Destination Unknown
09 I Will Live
