More info

A relatively recent CD (2007), a bit too biased to the AOR and melodic Rock side for my taste, although it isn't the actual reason why 'Blood on the highway' comes like a little weak in my book, or at least less enjoyable than the former Ken Hensley's albums, which were very interesting.
The actual reason is the songwriting itself, beyond the musical style of this album, that anyways includes a couple of fine tunes, like 'It won't last' (featuring John Lawton) or, to a lesser extent, the more rocking 'Okay (this house is down)' and the opening '(This is) just the beginning', song this latter which sounds strangely similar to the most Adult Oriented Rock face of Whitesnake, all this enhanced by the David Coverdaleian pipes of Norwegian soft Power Metal singer Jorn Lande.
I should add 'The last dance' to the pack (here sung by Glenn Hughes no less) but it's a revamped tune, already released in a former album, same as 'You've got it' or 'Think twice', for instance, following an usual Ken Hensley's methodology: the self-cover, 'We're on our way' it's an ok song too, but the disc as a whole doesn't stimulate me as other Ken's works do, for some reason.
In short, a decent album, a bit predictable and flat, but not really disappointing, and in the end it's good to see that Ken is on the road yet, after so many years and vicissitudes.
