THE GENE WALK GROUP - "The Gene Walk Group"

Classic Rock, Americana, Southern Rock, however you want to label it, The Gene Walk Group keeps the spirit of Rock alive. These accomplished musicians have put together an impressive collection of songs that should please AOR to Rock fans, and possibly even some in the Country music scene. The most appealing part of this music is it's truthfulness and accessablitity. They sing about human emontions and everyday situations that most people can relate to.

One might think this sounds alot like modern bands like "Matchbox 20", and yes, there are some comparisons, but these guys aren't trying to be everything to everyone like the modern rock bands. They are doing their own thing, and just happen to have a broader appeal. Walk's vocal range surpasses that of the modern bands as he sings with a more melodic style than modern bands or Country artists.

Due to the messed up music world we live in, I fear these guys are falling between the cracks, and the irony is that they fit in many genres, but not having that "label" probably hurts them in the eyes of record execs. All I can say is thank God for bands like this who do what they do and don't try to be anything they're not. If you're a music fan not concerned with image and being cool, you need to pick this album up, it's easily worth the money and will be listenable for many years to come.

He was from far away 1993 that I did not have news of this band, imprinted on the figure of Walk Gene, singer and chitarrista of the New Jersey. Memory very well when I acquired for correspondence miniums cd of 6 traces basing to me exclusively on some phrases read on a magazine American that compared the band to first Bon Jovi…
And in effects I conserve those still gelosamente cd that it contained authentications pearls of the bore of “Long Arm of Love”, one of my preferred songs always and of mega-ballad “the Painted Horse”.
To 10 years of distance, thanks to the net of course, I are imbattuto in the situated one of the band and with the my largest one been strange I have known of this exited album and that immediately I have tried to recover.

Thanks to the availability and the sympathy of the same Gene eccomi here finally to being able to speak to you about cotanto cd that if arrived before in my case of the mail would sure have figured in mine playlist of year-end.
Eh, because the 13 songs enclosed in nearly 70 minuteren represent a healthy air puff for anyone loves sonorità melodiche and of class, joined to a sure search of the roots of the r' n' r that they have made to think me to some things of the Rolling Stones… omaggiati with one beautifulst version of the classic “Dead Horse here”.
Between the better pieces they deserve citation “Kiss The World Goodbye” from the chorus indovinatissimo, “Tumbleweed Junction” that remembers the Firehouse and the reproposition of already cited “Painted Horse” that it has not lost null the fascination originates them…
Regarding the debut they appear in this album you recall to sonorità nearly Southern, above all in two pieces from 90 like “Sunflower” and “Rumblin' Train” that with its 8 minuteren and means of candid duration to being one of the strong plates of the live - shows.

GENE WALK GROUP
Gene Walk Group (1993)

Crítica por Lucas Gordon -Marzo 2008-
Otro pedazo imperdible de la historia del hard rock es este EP que lleva el nombre de la banda, compuesto por 6 tracks.

Uno de ellos es el ultra conocido hit de The Faces “Stay with me” y dos versiones de la balada “Painted Horse” que pertenece a GWG, una de ellas eléctrica y la otra acústica.

Los otros cuatro son todos propios, en los que se puede apreciar a un combo que apunta a un hard rock melódico dentro de la línea Bon Jovi, LA Guns como ya lo dije en otro comentario de esta agrupación alguna vez.

A veces no se busca comparar los grupos ni decir que este suena a tal o cual por gusto, sino que lo mas importante es guiarlos a ustedes a saber sin música lo que pueden esperar de un conjunto o disco.

Debe ser uno de las tantas agrupaciones que apasionados por el estilo hard rock, salio un poco tarde y no consiguió la promoción y éxito merecidos.

Pero aun así, varios artistas de gran fama aparecen en este EP, tal es el caso de Glen Burtnik de Styx, Steve Evetts de American Angel, T. M. Stevens (Steve Vai, Stevie Salas) y Eric Nilla también de American Angel.

Aun así, a quienes les guste este tipo de bandas, les sugiero humildemente que la escuchen. - http://www.mundorock.org/

"Gene Walk Group Review"

This group was born in New Jersey and maybe is one reason to recreate a hard rock music kind of Bon Jovi, mostly for the pipe of their founder Gene Walk. His voice also remember me when he sings thinner to Phil Lewis from LA Guns like in the song "Sunflower".
I don't think this is newly for themmehtier for you guys; the hard rock AOR fans will find this records a very good one; a band that I don't have previous knowlege musically sound very strong and "prolijo" (Gene, it means when you do a work very carfully looking all details, looking for perfection, I don't know the translation for this word).
Hate to be alone” like begins with the first three or four "acordes" (maybe chords, sounds of guitar) of “Heartbreak station” of Cinderella, obviusly is a soft metal, but then changes their base faster, it is something I wanted to mention.
“Medicine man” follows the cowboys style with acustic guitars combined with the electric ones, I consider this song the best of the album.
Like aditional facts the band started in the nineties and they released their first cd in 1993.
In a few words, this is a record to listen and keep in your collection! - www.rokker.com.ar

"Gene Walk Group Review"

Some of you may remember The Gene Walk Group from way back in the early nineties. If so, then you will be pleased to know that they have got a new album available. Entitled "The Gene Walk Group", this thirteen track CD is a welcome return for an artist, who, in my book, has been away for far to long. Their debut EP was most remarkable for it's Glen Burtnik co-write, and Plinky Giglio production. Sure, it had its moments but at five tracks it only scrapped the surface of this bands potential. The new album sees them realise that potential to the max. Whether it's Gene Walks drawl or the amped-up, sonic attack of Johnny Ferreira's guitars, this is a rock 'n' roll album in every sense of the word. Coming across like a hybrid of Bon Jovi, The Stones and Poison, Gene Walk has a mission, and that mission is to entertain, and entertain he most certainly does. His vocal delivery is a combination of Brett Micheals (Poison) and Shane (Loveless) but his delivery is one of pure attitude. Songs like "Rumblin' Train", "Kiss The World Goodbye" and "Dream So Lonely" are stadium anthems that deserve to be heard on a larger scale. The album has a swagger, that almost demands that you listen to it. If you don't believe me, then check it out for yourselves at www.genewalkgroup.com. With their debut five track EP fetching big money on Ebay these days, this album is a far more attractive option.
