Excellent album highlights all the individuals talents a real rock gem. If you love Kings X you'll really love this. A cracking hard rock album.

Mix a bit of Kings'X, Winger and Night Ranger and you get The Mob. Listening to this I thought "this is how Jimi Hendrix may sound these days if he was still around". No I am not exaggerating, give it a spin! The Mob deliver tasteful Winger groovy hard rock numbers and shredmeister Reb Beach offers here two excellent instrumental pieces which remind me of JSatriani at his best. 5 stars

Rocking record!

I couldn't disagree more with the previous reviewer. I'm a fan of all the musicians separately, and together they've made one helluva record! My only quibble is with some of the lyrics: they're a bit on the non-sensical side. But the music is just top notch, and so is the musicianship. From the very first track, this album just sounds great. I'm really glad they let Kelly Keagy sing on a track. I'm just really knocked out by the whole album.

Too Bad About The Songs

imangus

This supergroup has some serious potential. Reb Beach is a fantastic guitarist and is in top form here. Doug Pinnick of King's X is one of my favorite vocalists and has never sounded better. Kelly Keagy is a rock on the drums and he has that ballad vocal thing down to a science. Unfortunately, the songs here are just really weak. I've listened to it almost constantly hoping that it would be one of those albums that has to grow on me but it just hasn't happened. It's too bad because it really seems that all the different influences they have going could fuse into something truly special. If they could have only gotten Kip Winger(producer) to get some great material to bring to the party it would be a monster disc. As it is, it comes off as a bit of a rush job with the songwriting taking the brunt of the corner cutting. Maybe they'll get it right next time....

They Say All Music Guide

That Doug Pinnick is one busy man, as 2005 saw him appear on a new King’s X release (Ogre Tones), issue his third solo album (Emotional Animal), and also have time for the self-titled debut by an all-star ’80s hard rock/metal collaboration, the Mob. Although Pinnick handles both vocal and bass duties in King’s X, Pinnick focuses solely on singing here — and is joined by with ex-Winger bassist Kip Winger and guitarist Reb Beach, Night Ranger drummer Kelly Keagy, and keyboardist Timothy Drury (who has played with everyone from the Eagles to Whitesnake). Latter-day King’s X releases have gotten increasingly darker and artier, and with the Mob, Pinnick is reeled back toward melodic, straight-ahead compositions. But the material is certainly hard-edged — producer Winger keeps things surprisingly heavy (no chance of this being mistaken for a new Poison album), as evidenced by such tracks as “Wait” and “Never Get Enough.” That said, there are still unmistakable bits that scream “’80s metal.” Tops would be the inclusion of an accompanied guitar solo by Beach (titled “Guitar Solo”), the road-racing instrumental “Spaghetti Western,” and the Keagy-sung “The Magic,” which sounds custom-made for hoisting lighters in arenas — if you time-traveled back to 1988. If you’re a fan of early King’s X (especially 1988′s Out of the Silent Planet and 1989′s Gretchen Goes to Nebraska), you’re sure to enjoy the Mob’s self-titled debut. – Greg Prato
