Frontiers Records are no strangers to group collaborations, not a month goes by where members of bands aren’t encouraged to join forces and flex their creative muscles. This time it is Generation Radio who are getting together as they deliver their eponymously titled debut album.

                “Generation Radio? Never ‘erd of ‘um”. That may be the case right now, but its members are well and truly known, formed by Jay Demarcus of Rascal Flatts and Jason Scheff of Chicago and joined by Chris Rodriguez and Tom Yankton as well as famous sticksman Deen Castronovo, the listener knows that this is going to work-out in hard rock. ‘Generation Radio’ does not disappoint, this is high quality hard rock, its big on melody with hooks so big you could land a whale. Through a fantastic clean production, tracks such as ‘Why Are You Calling Me Now?’, ‘All Night to Get There’ and ‘Lights Go Out in Paradise’ roar with all the appeal of Bon Jovi, Revolution Saints and 80’s Kiss whilst ‘Smoking’ takes things up a notch with sounds that would deceive the listener into believing that this was a lost Thunder track from the early 90’s. In fact, anyone who has been disappointed with Bon Jovi’s output in the last 20 years should get a hold of this because ‘Generation Radio’ is the album that the band should have made instead of farting about with country rock.

                What this debut shows is that with a veteran expertise under their belt and a PhD in song crafting, Generation Radio know how to get the listener to sing along immediately and have a good time. Yeah, sure, those who don’t like this genre won’t like it, but who cares? Because if hard rock is your thing, then all those who were raised on radio should tune in to ‘Generation Radio’.

"for those who were raised on radio"
