A Kane Roberts album by any other name would still sound as sweet. You see, when the Rambo-emulating guitarist who gained a following by slinging an axe for Alice Cooper released his 3rd solo effort in ΓÇÖ99, he didnΓÇÖt call it a Kane Roberts album, he called it Phoenix Down. Maybe he was trying to shed the ΓÇÿ80s ΓÇ£stigmaΓÇ¥ of his name or maybe he just thought Phoenix Down sounded cool, but whatever the reason, the album was released with minimal buzz and failed to make much of a splash. Following the release of Phoenix Down, Kane took a hiatus from which he has just recently emerged and picked up right where he left offΓÇöliterally.Unsung Radio is a 2-disc set, of which disc #1 is a reissue of Phoenix Down, the only difference being that ΓÇ£Rebel HeartΓÇ¥ from the original Phoenix Down has been replaced by ΓÇ£Walking on Shadows (Remix).ΓÇ¥ Now most Kane RobertsΓÇÖ fans should already be well acquainted with Phoenix Down, but hereΓÇÖs a quick recap for the one or two that might have been in a coma the last 13 years, which is the only acceptable excuse for not owning this gem. Phoenix Down features some of the most modern tunes Kane has ever released while fully retaining melodic hard rock credibility. Even when the heavy guitars and aggressive vocals kick things up a notch or two, Kane never forgets to keep the catchiness high. And the non-modern tracks are pure melodic masterpieces, with choruses that soar high with slick harmonies and commercial hooks. The collection of "NEW" tracks on the bonus CD covers a wide span of Kane's career. Some tunes pre-date Kane's work with Alice while others were recorded as recently as 2004. Kane also has added insightful commentary that explains some of the events surrounding the recordings. He also added some guitar improves that should delight guitar junkies and players alike. Phoenix Down, "Under A Wild Sky" is an eclectic mix of melodic rockers and includes one of the heaviest solo tracks ever recorded by Kane, "Reckless". Written by Kane, Mike Slamer and the late Jimmy Tavis it features hard driving vocals and guitar and is a great way to kick off an album that slowly is becoming a true cult favorite. Reckless was also heard on the soundtrack of Rockstar starring Mark Wahlberg and Jennifer Anniston. Disc #2, which consists of unreleased songs, demos, guitar bits, and quick snippets of trivia from the mouth of Kane himself. Some tunes pre-date Kane's work with Alice while others were recorded as recently as 2004. He also added some guitar improves that should delight guitar junkies and players alike. Most of the songs sound like they could have been outtakes from KaneΓÇÖs debut, meaning they are firmly entrenched in that ΓÇÿ80s hard rock style, and while they lack a big, bombastic production, they donΓÇÖt sound all mucked up and muddy either. In terms of songwriting quality, there is little here that rivals the best of KaneΓÇöthink of these tunes as B-sides rather than hit single materialΓÇöbut they still showcase his ear for a good hook and skill with a guitar. You get gang vocal power on ΓÇ£City of Pain,ΓÇ¥ moody summertime angst on ΓÇ£Guns of Paradise,ΓÇ¥ hard-hitting heaviness on ΓÇ£WrongΓÇ¥ (which also features Kip Winger), head-banging riffs on ΓÇ£Louise,ΓÇ¥ and stacked harmonies and a sing-along chorus on ΓÇ£One Step to Heaven,ΓÇ¥ which just happens to be the albumΓÇÖs highlight. This collection will take you back to a time when radio played good music and Kane Roberts was hailed as a god of the guitar. And of course, to those of us who have good taste in rock ΓÇÿnΓÇÖ roll, he still is.
