Review:

If there’s anyone in the rock business that falls under the title “Journeyman” it’s Jizzy Pearl. One of the hardest working guys in hard rock, Pearl is back with an outstanding solo album entitled “All You Need Is Soul”. After fronting Love /Hate for years, Jizzy Pearl went on to sing for Ratt during Stephen Pearcy’s hiatus from the band, took over vocal duties for L.A. Guns with Tracii Guns and was the lead vocalist for Quiet Riot for several years. Pearl left Quiet Riot to focus on a solo career and if this is the result, then he has made a very wise decision indeed. This album will remind you of how great a band that Love /Hate was. This is without a doubt some of the best material that he’s produced since Blackout In The Red Room and the highly under-rated “Let’s Rumble”. I was a big fan of Love / Hate, so I’m happy to have “All You Need Is Soul” in my collection. Starting out with “You’re Gonna Miss Me When I’m Gone” you’ll see what all of the fuss is about. It sounds like it came right off of a Love /Hate record. Of course, it’s hard not to think that, with Pearl’s distinct vocal style, but the music is also on par with that of his former band. This album is thoroughly enjoyable from beginning to end. There isn’t a bad track on it to be found. Fans of AC/DC, Guns N’ Roses, L.A. Guns, etc. should love this sleazy return to form that sounds like it’s straight from the sunset strip era. Stand out tracks for me are “You’re Gonna Miss Me When I’m Gone”, “Mortified”, Mr. Jimmy” and “High For an Eye”, but like I stated earlier, every song is great on this album.  Welcome back to Hollywood, Mr. Pearl.  Thanks for bringing back the noise!
