Starbreaker – Starbreaker (2005)

Starbreaker_14 out of 5 Stars!

When it comes to a band featuring the crisp, clear, recognizable, and wide-ranging singer Tony Harnell (TNT/Westworld) behind the microphone, one would likely expect Starbreaker’s debut album to include some engaging melodies, along with stellar harmonies, and they would be correct.

And with Swedish guitarist/keyboardist Magnus Karlsson (Allen/Lande) wielding the six-string axe and layering the keys in the background (providing nearly an identical soundscape as he did on the enjoyable Allen/Lande albums), the majority of tracks are indeed powerful slices of Hard Rock/Heavy Metal, with impressive solos galore and an overall production quality that is ultra-professional.

I wish the band had lasted for more than just two albums before calling it a day.
