Today on the rock horizon we have a the latest release from Bob Dee with Petro called “Up All Night”! Bob and the band are known and loved by many fans around the world due to their recognizable sound, respect of rock traditions and passion that’s always a part of their tracks. The album features Bob Dee (singer/guitarist), Brian Bauers (bass), TJ Jordan (guitarist) and Scott Campbell (drums). It seems to be inspired by the success of previously released songs “Summertime”, “Mother Says” and “Take My Hand”. The band has created a fulfilling and many-sided CD in “Up All Night”. The album can be compared with a good book where you can laugh at some parts, but feel sad or delighted by others.

The track list starts with a very memorable and rhythmic song “Tell Me” setting the tone for the others to follow. From the first second you become addicted to its melody and lyrics – especially of the chorus. “Tell Me” is followed by a melodic “Stars” and a dramatic story of “Lips That Heal”. This latter song is full of emotions and authors’ passion that can be easily felt. For me, “Up All Night” is the real highlight of the album. The song is written in best traditions of rock with all corresponding guitar passages, sound specificities and real drive of singer and musicians. This track for sure should be in list of top songs for true rock lovers (votarists). Don’t fail to notice that album includes a bonus track “All American Boys” that is a tribute to US troops. The song is inspiring and active – and it’ is a great last page of this “book”.

All in all, this album, “Up All Night”, can be considered sets a high-standard, with a good range of songs and styles. The CD can be liked by people of different musical tastes and preferences. Special thanks to Bob with Petro and good luck with future projects!
