Review By Martin Popoff for Melodic Rock.com

Tyketto - Shine: 10 Out Of 10.

Tyketto have blossomed into what is probably the premiere pop metal act of the mean times, Shine taking the listener to sunny, boisterous vista, combining compositions slashed and liberated by surgical steel power chords, with softer, heartening moments built of clear acoustic guitar for miles, all produced crisp perfection.

And somehow, Tyketto manages to wrap in one wonderous package - all the best points about Zeppelin, Whitesnake, Tesla and Journey, creating a hard rock feast that just sings with pride.

Oddly enough, the cornerstones of this bright, optimistic are lead track Jamie and Get Me There, both wistful beautiful ballads, with Jamie exploding in an almost southern rock chording come chorus time.

Long Cold Winter does the Journey stripper boogie complete with amazing heartfelt vocal acrobatics from new guy Steve Augeri, while Let It Go finds a smooth retro-groove driven into the memory banks with a gorgeous Humble Pie-faced dual lead lick.

Just a hard record to put down. Tyketto bounding out of the gates with that necessary confidence required to do a commercial hard rock in today's market of grunge and alternative music.
