Jorn ~ Live On Death Road



I’ve never really listened to Jorn before. I’m not sure that I wanted my first experience with them to be a live album. I can’t say anything bad about this,  but live albums don’t really move me unless there is something really different about the music. The music was good, the voice is, of course, very good. Jorn do cover other band’s songs in addition to their own. They cover Christopher Cross’s “Ride Like The Wind”, which I have seen Mr. Cross perform that live. I liked Chris’s version better. They also cover Ozzy Osbourne’s “Shot In The Dark”. This is pretty close to Ozzy’s version, so it’s a good cover. Also, out of the Ozzy camp, Jorn do a cover of Black Sabbath’s “Mob Rules”. Also another cover of Dio’s  “Rainbow In The Dark”. Jorn has done other covers in the past & he does cover them really well. For a fan of progressive metal, this album will work out fine. For the rock fan, this will also suit you just fine. I look forward to hearing more Jorn in the future. I give this 4 out of 5 Music Guru stars.

  1. Go back to his early stuff and avoid the live. I like The Duke, Stormcrow and any of his first 4 or 5 albums. Sunset Station is my favorite Jorn song and is what turned me on to him.
