It’s always interesting to see that Glenn Hughes has a new “project”. It’s interesting because Hughes, for the most part, has a pretty core sound that works it’s way through most of his projects. The differences between Black Country Communion, California Breed and the latest solo release RESONATE are more nuances than actual differences. RESONATE is an extremely solid release, which you can bet Hughes is very proud of. Not resting on his Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame induction, Hughes returns with a fiery and diverse record that challenges his previous benchmarks and touches into some new ground along the way. Songs like “Heavy” showcase the power of this brilliant voice, while other songs like “Steady” could lead you to believe Hughes is looking to form Deep Purple MK 39. This is a near perfect release for Hughes; his best work since RETURN OF CRYSTAL KARMA.
PITRIFF RATING - 96/100 - Glenn Hughes is a rock musician with almost 50 years in the business who, surprisingly, has almost no clunkers in his collection. That does not change here. RESONATE is as strong as anything Hughes has ever done; a startling fact given the sheer volume of great music he’s made. Very much recommended.
