The Williams Ink self-titled album isn't for those looking for metronome controlled pop rock built with drum machines. Each song is a live performance that has been professionally tracked, at Denver's venerable FTM studios, then taken to Williams Ink's own studio to be fattened and greased with overdubbed guitars, percussion and vocals to become the power pop rock pig that it is. Formed in Denver in 2010, Williams Ink set out to bring a classic rock feeling back to the modern scene. The sound comes from a combination of rock influences like Kiss with the melodic pop feel of bands like Oasis. Todd Williams, front man and scribe, sings from the heart equally crushing the full bore and sweet lilting deliveries found in the hits of the 1950's. Time is not wasted between songs as this rock n roll amusement park chugs along with fast moving guitar and big emotional landscapes all tied together by the lions den ambiance of live shows. Guitar solos are plentiful. Some follow the melodic lines set up by the vocals while others lead the listener on a rock safari. Fifty one minutes follow the storyline set up in the fourteen track listing that reads like a personal letter to 'My Love' about good memories and the frayed edges of heart break that remain.
