VIOLATION is Starz' second album and it is a '70s Hard Rock classic. 'Cherry Baby' is a Pop Rock radio hit if I ever heard one. Very simple and direct with a fat bass and decent guitar lines. Michael Lee Smith crooning into the catchy chorus for us to sing along. 'Rock Six Times' is a riff rocker full of power and punch. Some interesting guitar tones on this track as well as heavier drums.
