CD Review: The Action Skulls Deliver What "Angels Hear" On Debut Release

What do you get when you combine The Bangles with The Beach Boys and The Cowsills? Answer is the debut album from Action Skulls. Their new release titled "Angels Hear" features Vicki Peterson (The Bangles), her husband John Cowsill (The Cowsills, The Beach Boys) and Bill Mumy (Barnes & Barnes). It is a full collaborative effort that has been 4 years in the making.

Their new 11-song release begins with the addictive pop/rock of "Mainstream," which feature vocals from every member of the band. Bill Mumy takes the lead on the California rock sound of "In The Future," before Peterson joins him on the bluesy ballad "If I See You In Another World." Peterson goes on solo for the country/folk appeal of "Map Of The World," then everyone joins back in for the sixties-sounding "Standing On A Mountain." The album wraps up with the steady country backdrop of "The Land Of Dreams" as all three vocals mesh together perfectly.
