A worthy investment for fans of the band.

After the independent release 'Magnified' in 2009, Lenny Wolf returns to a record company and releases his latest effort, 'Rendered Waters'. On this new release he has not re-mastered but almost single-handedly re-recorded seven tracks from Kingdom Come's first three albums. As he expressed in an in-depth interview elsewhere on these pages, he has intentionally left out some of the hits such as 'Living Out of Touch', 'What Love Can Be' and 'Who Do You Love' and has given a second chance to other tracks that are more personal to him. For instance, from the platinum self-titled debut, he presents fresher versions of 'Pushing Hard', 'Seventeen' and the classic 'Living Out Of Touch', whilst from the band's second album 'In Your Face' only 'The Wind' appears, although from the third album, 1991's 'Hands Of Time', contemporary approaches appear of three very well known tracks: 'Can't Deny', 'Should I' and 'I've Been Trying'.

'Rendered Waters' can be seen as a classy and current way of rediscovering and reminiscing the early success of Kingdom Come, but there are also three brand new songs that are inserted in between the older tracks and that fit in perfectly well. As such, 'Blue Trees' starts with a lead guitar riff that is simply infectious, 'Is It Fair Enough' is initiated with acoustic guitar rhythms to get to the chorus with more aggressive electric guitars in order to contribute to the deep lyrics that deal with the debate of going to other lands to help or invade. And on the last new song 'Don't Remember' Lenny keeps airing his views on life and a great heartfelt guitar solo is provided. To close the album we are given a true rocker in the shape of the re-recorded song 'Break Down The Wall' from Lenny's first LA band, Stone Fury.

Thirty years on and Lenny's singing voice remains as seductive as ever and, all in all, the album has a flawless sound, the re-recordings are upgraded to a 2011 approach, the new songs follow Kingdom Come's classic structure and feel, and is a worthy investment for fans of the band, and (yes, it had to be mentioned) of Led Zeppelin.
