Barry and co’s sixth

For their lat­est al­bum, US rock-ra­dio pleasers Shine­down al­lowed aptly-named bass player Eric Bass to han­dle pro­duc­tion and mix­ing du­ties, and he cer­tainly seems to have got the best out of drum­mer Barry Kerch. “He and I work very well to­gether and can pretty much read each oth­ers’ minds in the stu­dio en­vi­ron­ment,” Barry tells us. “He was able to pull a lot out of me with­out it be­ing a chore.” The re­sults are ace; on ‘Devil’, Barry’s drums pro­pel the riff­ing guitar and give the track a huge qual­ity; ditto on the ti­tle track, with its big cho­rus hook. There are some nice drummy flour­ishes through­out as Barry breaks out some spar­ing dou­ble kick and hand licks on Dark­side’‘ and the pound­ing ‘Evolve’.
