Finally a well earned best of release from one of the greatest modern day heavy rock vocalists. Jorn’s career has gone from strength to strength since his departure from “Masterplan” in 2006, with a set of pipes to rival Coverdale and Dio and lung power that would piss all over the mighty Thor and his stupid hot water bottle gimmick, Jorn is the man that has raised the bar for every singer to aspire to. “Man of the Dark” is prime time old school classic rock with thumping drums and guitars pushed to the front of the mix, and ooh that voice!! Thankfully one of his best ever tracks “Soul Of The Wind” is included in this collection starting of with a deceiving mellow vocal that soon gives way to another slice of guitar driven heaven. If you were to think of “Mob Rules” era “Sabbath” and then play “Shadow People” you would think it was an outtake from 1981 with its pounding riff which makes the point that the band aren’t just about the vocals as the musicians are all top draw as well. “Lonely are the Brave” title track from 2008s breakthrough release makes an appearance on “Dukebox” which if left off would have been a sin, again some breathtaking vocals which proves the man so far just hasn’t got the recognition for which he fully deserves. On the downside all we get in the way of bonuses is 2 re-recorded tracks, but if it is the intention of the record label to just attract the curious first time buyer then they should succeed…..Essential listening.
