Darryl Way ~ Underground

Darryl Way ~ Underworld

 

It took me a little bit longer again, as I had to digest this 3 CD set of Underground written & performed (violins & keyboards) by Darryl Way. Along with Curved Air founder, Darryl Way, you also have Richard Mead on guitars & Pete Skinner on drums. Vocalists include Graham Foote, Sarah Vaughan, Bryan Walters, James Goodman, Nicola Avino, Rachel de Cock, Cassie McIvor, Naomi Harvey, Juliet Hopkins, & narrators Rob Wheeler & John Guilor. While this is supposed to be a rock opera, it most definately is not. A rock opera has no narrators. It tells the story without narration. Don’t get me wrong, I really liked the story which includes love, sex, betrayal, revenge, & of course Rock & Roll, but, not a rock opera. “Tommy” by the WHO was a rock opera, this was more of a musical play. A great story, great music, what more could you need? The main singer seems to have that Dennis DeYoung sound. At one point I felt like I could’ve been listening to “Kilroy Was Here” by STYX. The voices were all strong. This CD set will keep you entertained for hours. Certainly worth the time & money. I rate this 4 out of 5 Music Guru Stars, only because I wanted more music.
