Frontiers [Release date 13.10.17]
A novel idea here as Tyketto play their classic ‘Don’t Come Easy’ album in its entirety but back to front! The current line-up still has two original members in vocalist Danny Vaughn and drummer Michael Clayton Arbeeny, who are joined by guitarist Chris Green (Furyon/ex-Pride), former Ten keyboards player Ged Rylands and Thunder’s bassist Chris Childs.
Danny Vaughn has lost none of his vocal power and gives his on all, with ‘Standing Alone’ a set highlight. Elsewhere Chris Green adds some classy guitar playing to ‘Lay Your Body Down’ and ‘Burning Down Inside’. The DVD gives a good idea of how much fun the band and the fans were having at the show, indeed the fans are very lucky as Danny Vaughn announced this was the last time they would play the album in its entirety.
The set includes three songs not on the ‘Don’t Come Easy’ album – an oldie in ’Rescue Me’ and two newer songs, ‘Reach’ and ‘Dig In Deep’.
The DVD adds an extra song, ‘Dig In Deep’ and the whole package is one for the fans as you get the band’s classic debut album performed in full. Great to see Tyketto still going strong all these years later and long may they continue. ****
