Janet Gardner
Pavement Entertainment
Released: August 18, 2017

Album Review by Allyson Kingsley, Contributing Writer, Boston Rock Radio



Arising from the fierce flames of 80s hard rock is Janet Gardner, lead singer of the foxy all female band Vixen with her debut self-titled album. In conjunction with Justin James, notable for his fine work with Staind, Collective Soul, and Tyketto, this album is a harmony of traditional hard rock with brazen and forceful modern elements.

"Rat Hole punches with edgy riffs. It is bold and brassy, glam with hints of electronica.


 "Hippycrite" rains solid with its pulsating intro guitar and wild use of effects that mesh relentlessly with Janet's sassy lyrics.

 "If You Want Me” rams into your ears with a harder rhythm and pronounced thunderous drums. With ardent passionate vocals and a bold guitar solo, it is most reminiscent of the days of Vixen.

If you desire even harder, "Your Problem Now" slams with creative vocal effects. It is a rugged treat.

"Let it be Over" casts a spell with an interesting luring vocal intro. Her words address modern concerns with a demand for change.

"Lost,” my personal favorite, is notably badass. Her natural vocals shine bright and the lead and rhythm guitars are especially cohesive with her singing.

"The Grind" is heavy...fist- pumping, bang-your-head heavy. Jane's vocals especially rage and the drumming beats your heart to a frenzy. It's simply purely hard rocking.

"Best Friend" admirably slows things down just a bit.  A melodic and soulful ballad, it is her being honest and soothing.

"The Good or the Bye” has a simple yet catchy deeply 80s rock feel. Especially suited for cranking up.


Janet Gardner and company have created quite the vivacious album. She is bona fide proof that women stand brazen and strong in the world of hard rock/heavy metal. This album will regale your heart if you're an aficionado of infectious 80s style rock.
