Brennus Music is famous to discover the new French Metal killers but the French label is also well-known to give chances to classic Rock formations. General Store is one of these "Rock" signatures and without being revolutionary, their last album will be a good release for all the ones who like Southern Rock.

General Store is a solid formation and their new album "Vision Of Diversirty" is a good release of rock music. The band plays a nice classic Southern Rock, a music which uses some cool riffs and a some slide guitars and of course a lot of Hammond Organ. That's really classic and definitely not new and surprising but the guys of General Store just wanted to play something "cool", they just wanted to play the music that they like and obviously they did it well on this release. Be sure that "Vision Of Diversirty" is a solid album of Southern Rock, we heard it all before and I didn't find any real outstanding songs on this album but all in all it's well done.

With a good production and with some nice performances of the musicians "Vision Of Diversirty" is the proof that General Store is a good band which is able to release real professional CDs. Also, it's obvious that this band is probably perfect to do some concerts in some pubs and bars. For sure General Store is probably a band that people enjoy to see live, it's a band the lives no doubt.

"Vision Of Diversirty" is not a special album, it's just something for the nostalgic of the 70's but if you like this spirit be sure that General Store knows how to play this kind of music. If you want to listen to some cool Rock, have a look on this release but of course if you want something new have a look on the other releases of the labels, "Vision Of Diversirty" is definitely not for you…
