TNA - Takes A Lot Of Balls

Whenever rock icons like guitarist/vocalist Pat Travers and drummer Carmine Appice work together, enlisting the support of the ingenious all-round bassist, T.M. Stevens, into the bargain, the result is bound to be a technically accomplished masterpiece oozing sheer energy and power. The current album by Travers & Appice, It Takes A Lot Of Balls, certainly lives up to its promising title: real men playing rock music for people with guts. Powerful blues rock with gritty guitar riffs, driving drum sounds and intricate bass grooves mark the album’s 13 tracks – be it the compelling opener ‘Better From A Distance’, the ripping ‘I Don’t Care’, the typical Southern rock of ‘Can’t Escape The Fire’, or the tender sounds of ‘Hey You’. Pat Travers proves to be not only an expert when it comes to dynamic power chords and fast solos, he also sprinkles in fantastic slide parts and demonstrates with ‘Stand Up’ that he knows his funk rock. "The recordings were cut in one go, the! album was written almost exclusively at the studio," Carmine Appice enthuses. "We’d planned one or two tracks, but the material seemed to almost write itself. I expect that our audience will love the CD. I’ve been a fan of Pat’s for a long time. This collaboration was definitely worth waiting for all those years."

It Takes A Lot Of Balls highlights the trademarks of these three exceptional musicians, and the result is a timeless, ambitiously recorded, powerful blues rock album that highlights not only the technical competence of each individual musician but also their exquisite songwriting. As Carmine Appice describes It Takes A Lot Of Balls: "These are some of the best songs that I’ve ever written and recorded."
