Outstanding tenth solo disc by this excellent blues/rock axeslinger from Jonesboro, Arkansas featuring 12 tracks of awesome, dynamic, soul-powered, retrofied, blues-based, guitar rock mojo that lands solid with endless amounts of musical strength, depth and maturity. From start to finish, "Love Is The Answer" is an essential, highly enjoyable, way-kool, Tony Spinner disc on Grooveyard Records that rocks the blues and shines bright with talent & excellence.

Tony Spinner is an authentic, legit modern day guitar hero who speaks the six string truth; a bonafide, all natural "old-school" guitar rocker with soulful vocals who is heavily inspired and influenced by the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Robin Trower, Rory Gallagher, Johnny Winter, Eric Clapton, Duane Allman, Billy Gibbons and a host of countless other excellent classic guitarists who wrote the book of rock. Having recorded and toured for many years with Toto, Paul Gilbert & Pat Travers to name a few, Tony Spinner is a seasoned, world-class, professional musician who was born to rock & has devoted his life to musical passion.

Despite the troubled world we live in today, Tony Spinner has risen above to create & produce one of his strongest, most focused discs to date in the form of "Love Is The Answer" which sends out positive energy & vibe into the world with his music. Recorded in 2020 with his long-time rhythm section of Michel Mulder on bass and Alex Steier on drums from Holland who are both excellent, rock solid, seasoned musical brothers that lock in & lay down righteous grooves for Spinner to strut his good down home mojo. There is a ton of musical love, respect and admiration in the room which can be felt through the music on this disc. The true message from Tony Spinner is clear & pure like a warm summer breeze flowing through the air; The power of music universally brings us together and that ultimately "Love Is The Answer".

Tony Spinner is definitely not the first to come up with the glorious idea of countering all adversity with a heavy dose of love. Naughty, somehow, but lovable and with all the desperation most likely the obvious answer.

The new album by the blond slap from Arkansas is unmistakably entitled "Love Is The Answer" and shines with a fine dozen blues-rock numbers that come along with lightheartedness and plenty of passion. Guitars galore. Blues rock in trio format, but not in the dull way, but tastefully with all sorts of verve and the not so easy to create ingenuity that this closely circumscribed genre allows.

The former TOTO sidekick has never disappointed with all of his solo albums in the last ten or fifteen years. Mr. Spinner has that special something. "Love Is The Answer" comes with the same heartbeat as usual, but the pulse beats healthy, steady and strong. This album is alive, so to speak, gives strength and joy, serves as a refreshing oxygen shower.

Tony Spinner's voice sounds as usual good and youthfully fresh, while his various overdubbing guitar tracks give the impression that we are dealing with a small, three or even four-man strong patrol. Guitar freaks will love it. Stratocaster rules. And if one or the other of them should be missing the right words, then we'll stick with Tony Spinner's new, absolutely recommendable album "Love Is The Answer".
