This big man from the U.S. is like Ted Nugent without the dodgy politics - a thoroughly satisfying disc.

This release takes you back to the 1970s when Guitar Rock was the soundtrack to the American dream. Don't be fooled by the photo-shopped album sleeve or the Eddie Van Halen hinted suggestion (in the record's title) of 'Eruption', this big man from the U.S. is like Ted Nugent without the dodgy politics.

Put a bit of Rick Derringer, Pat Travers and Black Oak Arkansas through a mincer and you've got a fist full of songs fit for a road trip. On his website his bio simply states "Born. Learned how to Rock out. Still Rockin' out" which might be all you need to understand about the directness of the man and his music.

There are big meaty riffs at every turn and his vocals, while not going to win any awards, are big and robust enough to complement the music. It's a simple template but Scott puts enough of a different spin on it each time to make this a thoroughly satisfying disc.

Opener 'Sunshine And Rock 'N' Roll' shocks and awes like Nugent but the next song 'Gimme Little Kiss' has that prime time, good time feel of Kiss inviting you to party with Scott (vocally closer to Gene Simmons than Paul Stanley).

He throws a Psychedelic curve ball on 'Cosmic Hog' and shows he can get Funky with the bass heavy 'No Mercy'. 'Blood Pudding' is a classic driving Rocker and 'Rock 'N' Roll' is like Bachman Turner Overdrive and mid-1970's Canned Heat jamming. Late in the game 'Freewheel' unleashes one of his best solos.

The production reminds you this is a modern recording and has enough oomph to make your house shake. Scott also has a tattoo parlour and by the time the disc ends with 'Rock 'N' Roll Dogs' you'll feel like a Rock 'n' Roll dog yourself in need of an Aron Scott tattoo across your arm.

Great review for a great CD, but Aaron is from Canada, not the US. (P.E.I. to be exact.) I did the cover graphics for him.
