Album review: VOODOO CIRCLE – More Than One Way Home

AFM Records

A one word review would almost suffice for the latest release from Voodoo Circle…and the word is “Whitesnake”.

“More Than One Way Home” is the third release from Voodoo Circle following 2008’s self titled debut and 2011’s “Broken Heart Syndrome”. The main man behind VC is current Primal Fear guitarist Alex Beyrodt backed by band mate Mat Sinner and Pink Cream 69 front man David Readman.

No complaints about the quality of the playing, David Readman’s vocals are excellent as usual and the songs are all classic rock tunes…but this could be a long lost Whitesnake album from the late 1980’s.

The song titles say it all really.  Ain’t No Love in the Heart of the “Graveyard City”,  “Tears in the Rain” or should that be “Cryin’ in the Rain”, “House of Babylon”…it’s where the “Child of Babylon” lived of course. “Cry For Love”…well “Cry For Love” but that was David Coverdale solo! I could go on for every track…well a couple more then…“The Saint & The Sinner” and “Victim of Love” have to be mentioned as Voodoo Circle haven’t even bothered to change the titles of these!!

Two anomalies are “The Ghost in Your Heart” which is obviously Deep Purple (oh wait…a certain Mr Coverdale started his career with them didn’t he…) and final track “Open Your Eyes” where VC do a PC69-type number.

An enjoyable long lost release from Whitesnake…oh apologies again…new release from Voodoo Circle!!
