Sanchez: Run the Streets
SSanchez Run the Streets album new music review

Sanchez Run the Streets

Melodic Hard Rock
2.5/5.0

Good intentions will only get you so far. With Sanchez's third release, Run the Streets, on their third label, those intentions prove disappointing. The principal is vocalist Jose Sanchez who has been doing this gig since the Eighties. Eighties melodic hard rock is what you get on Run the Streets. And, fortunately, the music is rather interesting and entertaining, even though the production seems muted or muddled at times.

What drags this album down is Sanchez' vocal performance. Even with some back up, Sanchez sounds muted, tired, or strained, or maybe its just the lousy mix. I certainly hope it's the latter because I'm tired of hitting the 'skip' button. The more I listen the more I don't want to hear Jose Sanchez. (I'll give him credit on Friends and Empty Words.) Dismissing the vocals, there are some kick ass tunes here: We Got Your Love, Girls, and Bullet in Your Heart are stand out tracks.

I'm thinking, maybe, the other three dudes in this crew should split off and find another singer for their very good tunes. Listen at your own convenience or risk.

It's Only Rock n Roll

My childhood was safe and sane. No abuse and no traumas. I was surrounded by a large and loving family who taught me the importance of hard work and a meaningful education.

Lyrically I like to use themes that make the listener use his or her imagination, and to give a little of the lessons I've learned in my own life.
