Album Review

Perhaps one of the more misleading albums to appear in recent times is the 2004 release Inertia, credited to an artist named Montrose. Think it's a new release by guitar god Ronnie Montrose? No way. This release has absolutely nothing to do with the same Mr. Montrose who was responsible for igniting such all-time classic hard rock ditties as "Bad Motor Scooter," "Space Station #5," and "Rock Candy" (and introducing singer Sammy Hagar to the world); this is by a modern-day soul-rocker who shares the same last name.
