The Saturday Metal Review

Lynch Mob

Wicked Sensation

Elektra Records

Released 1990

When Dokken split up at the tail end of the 80’s, guitarist George Lynch had a plan in mind to form a new band that would eclipse all his work done with his former outfit. What resulted was Lynch Mob; a brash, embolden mix of rock/glam/metal, allowing the guitarist to essentially improve upon the template started with Dokken. Coming along for the ride was Dokken drummer ‘Wild’ Mick Brown, bassist Anthony Esposito and the talented vocalist Oni Logan – whose rough, unpolished and blusey vocals anchored the new sound George intended to move forward with; just think a rawer version to Ray Gillen and you get a good picture of the singer’s style/range here.

The album produced two successful singles in “River of Love” and “Wicked Sensation”, climbing to number 19 and number 31 respectively on the billboard’s mainstream rock charts, proving George’s new band was going to be a force to reckon with.

Standout tracks on this release – “Wicked Sensation”, River of Love”, “Hellchild” and “No Bed of Roses”.

I am giving this record a 7.5 out of 10
