Donald Trigger-Infinite Persistence
In 1989 Dainel Trigger heard Europe's "The final countdown" being played during a laser light show at the London Planetarium and this had such an impact on him that he wanted to make music that sounded "like that". He would form his first band at 15. Then he few years later he had some problems with this voice, but he would eventually recover and then form Trigger with his wife, then teenage guitarist Dave D'Andrade. Trigger would go on to record four albums and get some real attention before calling it quits in 2011. That brings us to this solo album for Daniel Trigger. I suppose I was expecting more of an 80's AOR style there is some of that. However the album as a whole is more of a mix of hard rock, AOR and even some more modern rock mixed in. I hear some Skid Row, Bon Jovi, MSG (Robin McCauley era) and yes even some Europe mixed in. There is definitely a strong balance between heavy rockers and ballads. There is no doubt that Daniel Trigger handles both styles with ease. Listening to this album it sounds like whatever throat/voice problems that Trigger had they are certainly in the past. His voice is one of the major strengths of this album. Fans of hard rock should definitely give this album a listen.
