Love N War “Up The Annie” - Album Review

By:Tammy Lyn Carbonetto

Music Journalist: Boston Rock Radio


Love N War Up The Annie.jpg

Bio (from their Facebook page):

High Energy, Original Hard Rock/Metal Band out of Houston Texas

John Adams - Lead Guitar/Vocals

Jeff Vandenberghe - Lead Vocals

Donnie Bragg - Drums

Ray Soliz - Bass Guitar


If Bret Michaels (Poison) and Brian Johnson (AC/DC) had a musical love-child, it would be Love N War based solely on the vocal range and rasp of the vocals. I can not explain how badly I wanted the token “Yow!” or something to that extent through the album. A couple close ones, but it definitely brings you there. It is reminiscent of early 90s rock ballads but harder hitting. It will make sense when you hear it, I swear.


Just throwing this out there… I’m a total bass girl. Most people air guitar the leads, I’m throwin’ it down with the heavy bass on this one. The leads have so much energy. First, the solos are long, and fast. The melodies are catchy, the kind of catchy that sticks in your head when you’re just going about your business. There was a lot of thought that went into these and the placement in the album. John Adams works those strings nearly to point of making them squeal like that toy your kid just won’t get rid of, in an amazing, fun way! Not the ear-bleeding way of your son’s squeaky frog toy. Just sayin’.


Some of the outros just give the listener a snippet of the people beyond the band. You can tell they had an absolute blast recording. “710 Groove” made me giggle with the lyrics and delivery of the first few lines, in an evil, sadistic way. But hey, this is metal we’re talking about, we all relate! Listen to the whole album through, don’t skip around, you could miss the little musical unicorn surprises. Those are my favorite.

Peace, Love & Metal,
