ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
To this very day, you can go to the east side of Detroit, and, on any given street, in any number of houses, you will find the varied beginnings of some rock \'n roll band. They practice in garages and basements, on equipment they inherited from older brothers, friends, and fathers, but they all share the same dream: to create rock \'n roll music. This too, is where The Romeo Flynns came from.


Heavily influenced by the British invasion of the 60\'s, a time when it was all about the song, they learned how to do one thing well. They learned how to compose songs that people want to hear. Combining their British influences with the Power Pop scene of Detroit in the 80\'s, The Romeo Flynns, Jimmy Moroney, D. Lawrence Lee and Jeff Kenny, decided to take up the challenge, answer the call, and rose from the ashes of what they once were to what they are today.


For them, it\'s still about the music and the songs. They\'ve been criticized for putting too many \"good songs\" on their album. Criticized by well intentioned people whose interest is more in the marketing than the music. But The Flynns remain loyal to their fan base and insist always, in reaching deep down and producing the best they have to offer.


You don\'t have to be a rocket scientist to understand what they\'re trying to do through their music. Whether it\'s the up-tempo, foot stompin\' power pop beat of Gonna Feel Alright, or soulful ballads like Every Time We Part or Kristine, The Romeo Flynns want to move you - want to reach you with an emotion that only comes from listening to a well constructed song. Songs that touch all of us in the same way.


Pictures of You, their debut CD, is meant to be listened to as albums once were, in its entirety as a thematic collection of songs. Even though each cut stands on its own, there is a story within the whole. All you have to do is listen. There is a message there for all of us. Because we all have gone through the same or similar circumstance sometime in our lives. From the opening dialogue of the Prelude to the orchestrated finale in the Reprise that completes the story, you will agree that the journey through Pictures of You was well worth it.

Excellent Blend of Brit Rock and Detroit Rock
\"Pictures Of You\" is a brit rock influenced Detroit rock album brought to you by authentic Motor City rockers The Romeo Flynns. The combination of these styles is nothing less than electric. The sound is, of course, heavily guitar driven, with thick beats, big choruses and an arena mentality. This album is a definite party package, with 13 solid speaker pumping tracks - frills and overproduction not included. There is also a subtle element of 50\'s rebel rock present, which supports an already angst-filled sound. The album is well produced, sounds great, and really lends itself to the \"loudness\" of the sound. The title track \"Pictures Of You\" gets the album going with a bang and really defines the Brit/Detroit rock fusion. \"Gonna Feel Alright\" features that 50\'s element and will absolutely rock your world with a huge chorus and additional support from horns, keys and organ. \"Just Fade Away\" is another highlight, with a quirky 80\'s guitar riff and a strong melodic chorus that will most certainly drive the ladies wild. If you like Detroit Rock, Brit Rock and the huge sound that comes with it, give “Pictures Of You” a spin. You won\'t be disappointed.
