Artist: Justin King Album: "Same Mistakes" CD Review: Genre: Rock Sounds Like: ? Technical Grade: 10 Production/Musicianship Grade: 10 Commercial Value: 10 Overall Talent Level: 10 Songwriting Skills: 10 Performance Skill: 10 Best Songs: Single Weakness: ? CD Review: Justin King, a singer/songwriter/musician from Eugene, Oregon turned in a searing guitar and vocal performance on this radio-friendly track that has the potential be a chart burner and a fan favorite. Reminiscent of Rock songs from the early and mid eighties which instantly engaged you, this track has the same affect and benefits from a fast start and a mellifluous guitar melody which instantly sticks in your mind like chewing gum to the sole of your shoe and it accomplishes all of that in less than 4 minutes.
If Justin can capture and duplicate this formula on the songs for his forthcoming LP, then he is assured of not making the Same Mistakes that many leading guitar frontmen tend to make of jamming and not playing.
Advice: Keep quality songs like this coming. They will be the vehicle that will transport you to success.
