JACK STARR"S BURNING STAR- No turning back (1986)



Shredding guitars, soaring vocals, great 80's power metal songs. Sounds like a real diamond. And so it is. Guitarist Jack Starr having left Virgin Steel after the legendary ''Guardians of the flame'' album (1983) had to prove he could deliver the same way his ex bandmate David De Feis did without him on Virgin Steele's ''Noble Savage'' (1985). ''No turning back'' is one of the greatest power metal albums. And power in not a euphemism in this case. Gems like Light in the dark and Run for your life remain untouched by time, the menacing power of Starr's riffing rules, Tirelli leaves as speechless with his vocals. The only time this album slows down a little bit is the cover of James Taylor's Fire and rain (a truly beautiful song and a great cover, check out the original too). This is the best album Jack ever released a total must have.
