“An Axe To Grind” (1990) is listed as Ken Tamplin & Friends, as there are studio appearances by Lanny Cordola, Ken Mary (House Of Lords), Joey Tafolla (Jag Panzer) and Mark St. John of KISS, to name a few. Impressive by itself, yes? The music itself is diverse enough to make this more than just another hair metal album: acoustic fretwork, straight-up blues guitar, and even a jazz composition factor in here, all showcasing Tamplin’s wide musical range. Of course, the trademark heavier stuff on here are at center stage, and they’re some of the best stuff I’ve heard from that era. The production is top-notch, the musicianship is phenomenal, and Tamplin’s voice is at his peak here. Digitally remastered re-issue incl. 3 bonus tracks.

    This is Ken Tamplin at his rockin’ best. His vocals on this album are in peak form and the guitars are blazing hot. All star cast of musicians, awesome sound, and great songs add up to a HARD ROCK MASTERPIECE!!!!
