Album Review

There were two predominant views of Frank Marino in the '70s. The first was that he fit into the guitar hero group of such people as Pat Travers, Ted Nugent, and Robin Trower. The second was that he was a bit of a Jimi Hendrix clone. Well, 2001 sees Marino releasing Into the Storm with his longtime group Mahogany Rush. It also shows that the guitar hero title still fits, although perhaps the guitar heroes of today differ from those of the '70s. Marino's sound certainly fits into his era more than the 2000s, but that does not stop him from producing a killer album. His guitar textures are not too flashy, but very tasteful. As to the Hendrix reference, those influences can be heard on occasion, but really Marino has his own sound. This release is a very strong rock album that even touches on sounds as far away from Hendrix as ELP and Tomita. In fact, the first cut on the piece, an instrumental introduction sort of number, really seems to blend the sound of both of those groups in an arrangement that feels a bit like a take on Mars, from Holtz' The Planets. Marino is back, and back in style.

WHOA!!! BLOWN AWAY!!!!

WOW!!! Never heard of this guy before but his stuff is killer!! Found him while surfin itunes and was BLOWN AWAY!!!! Right up there with, well it sounds like Pink Floyd playing Jimmy Hendricks and Led Zepplin with talent and technology....thats my best comparison after a better listen to the whole album. Very original and visionary, I was moved and refreshed. Its hard to find somthing new that has that cool older edge to it. I am hooked, this guy has no excuse for not being far more popular. GIVE IT A LISTEN!!!!!!!

Must have list....

If you don't have this, then you must get it..... Anyone who enjoys the sometimes not-so-subtle blending of Blues, Rock and Jazz will truly appreciate Frank Marino's style. Years ago, my Mother (of all people) introduced me to Frank Marino and Mahogany Rush with the Live album and the Tales of the Unexpected, and ever since that time, I have been listening to his music.... My personal favorites from this album: "Heat of the Moment" makes the album purchase well worth it at nearly 12 minutes of Jamming..... "Ordinary Man" another lengthy track making the album purchase worth it.... "Since you came into my Life" A Bluesy Rock ballad....

A journey into the mind of Marino!!

This recording you get all the great guitar solos you would expect from one of the greatest post-hendrixian era players of the early seventies. Since his release from a major record contract, Frank Marino demonstrates that freedom is a musical expression that doesn't die with the times. A more relaxed, focused player Marino is now that he has had time to enjoy family life. Don't get me wrong, there's just as much nostalgia in this recording, but justifiable considering the venues this guy has played. I think that any record is proven on stage and after seeing Mahogany Rush twice in the last three years I can say that Marino's latest incarnation of the group is by far one of his best. Have fun listening!
