TNT ‘My Religion ’ MTM Music MTM068192 (2004)

Following on from last year’s taster EP ‘Give Me A Sign’ (two songs from the EP feature on this album). It’s the classic TNT line-up - vocalist Tony Harnell, guitarist Ronnie Le Tekro, bassist Morty Black and drummer Diesel Dahl. The band had a number one ‘Best Of’ album last year in their native Norway and their albums always carry high expectations. Does this meet them? Not ‘arf!

TNT have penned and recorded an album chock full of hard rock delights. Opener ‘Invisible Noise’ leans heavily on Harnell’s other band, Westworld especially the layered vocals and driving guitar riffs. Plenty of sing-a-long mid-tempo rockers like ‘Lonely Nights’, with Le Tekro doing a fine Brian May impression on the soloing. Personal favourate has to be the title track, with a ‘Hey hey’ chorus and descending power chords - classic. Of course the acoustic moments are a TNT trademark as well and ‘Perfectly’ continues this fine tradition. Harnell takes centre stage with his impassioned vocal.

Unlike many albums that pack the best moments early into an album, TNT have plenty in reserve for the end of the album like ‘Everybody’s Got A Secret’. The song has a simple riff and catchy hook but a tune that stays in your head for a long time. But would you believe TNT try folk! ‘Song 4 Dianne’ is a mellow refrain with whimsical backing and Simon & Garfunkel style backing vocals.

Along with Seventh Key and Power Quest, an essential 2004 purchase.
