Mike Zito is ripping through the industry noise with his new album ‘Resurrection’. The 11 track show-stopper showcases the maestro’s infallible blues touch, and he captivates with each track leaving us refreshed and stimulated.
‘I’ll Make Love To You’ paves the way forward, and it gets the crunchy blues-rock train in motion, leaving no hostages behind as it progresses. Vocally, Mike rises to the top with conviction, and he testifies why he is one of the greatest singers to grace the airwaves in recent times.
Following on, ‘Don’t Bring Me Down’ takes the groove train back slightly with a somewhat chill overture, but the guitar riffs still cut through the speakers, and they smash with sharp texture. Again, Mike unleashes a nail-biting vocal delivery. He expresses himself with no ambiguity about wanting to stay high up and never wanting to go back down to earth.
Midway through the album ‘Presence Of The Lord’ brings a new soundscape to the forefront of the compound, and it leads down a balladesque route with an emotional cadence that is challenging to let go of once it gets into full swing.
‘You Don’t Have Me’ spills the feel-good grooves with a driving rhythm that takes hints from some of the most incredible blues track that rose out of the scene years previous. ‘Running Man’ cements Mike’s name deep into the songbook, and the final track, ‘Resurrection’ leaves us pleading for more with the edgy guitar riffs soaring the echelon; here, Mike gently hands us back to society with his empowering delivery.
