"Ayron Jones continues to break stereotypes with "Chronicles Of The Kid", an album of modern, sophisticated rock."

The name Ayron Jones continues to grow in the world of rock. The Seattle-born musician's debut album ("Child Of The State") was a big hit 3 years ago, with anthems such as the ever-topical "Mercy", which evoked the treatment of black Americans, illustrated by the tragic fate of George Floyd (2020). On the strength of numerous world tours and public and media recognition, Ayron Jones was eagerly awaited with this new album, "Chronicles Of The Kid".

At the age of 36, the artist seems to be taking stock of his life, looking back at what has built him up to become what he is today: a renowned artist. For those who don't yet know him, Ayron Jones has not had an easy life, surrounded since birth by drugs, having suffered the loss of his parents, living in a delicate, sometimes violent environment filled with stereotypes. All this could have ended badly. But music, initiated by his aunt, gave him hope at an early age, and was his lifeline out of the labyrinth of perdition in which he seemed predestined to be trapped.

In "Chronicles Of The Kid", Ayron Jones explores this past, using the torments that accompanied him for so long to experiment a little more with his blues, rock and grunge music. But, to avoid going round in circles, he has surrounded himself with several composers to help his music evolve. Where the previous album was more in a classic rock vein to build the foundations, the new record goes a step further in sound research, giving it a more modern edge. The guitars are a little fatter ('Blood In The Water'), the riffs more assertive and the soli more polished. The emotion and catharsis that music represents for Ayron can be felt in every note and vocal line. 'Filthy' follows in this vein, verging on metal with a touch of the oppressive Seattle kid's adolescence.

The album is more varied than its predecessor, while retaining Ayron's trademark blues base, moving, for example, from an anthemic track ('The Title') to a more modern pop with a touch of R'n'B ('Otherside'). As if to reach a wider audience in search of variety, 'Chronicle Of The Kid' embraces the way we listen to music, constituting a kind of playlist with the wide range of genres in which Ayron seems to be comfortable.

Ayron Jones does not disappoint, confirming the musician's limitless potential revealed on "Child Of The State". Drawing on the events of his life, the musician has illustrated them musically to convey both the temptation to tip over into darkness and the hope carried by the branch he clung to in order not to sink. Ayron Jones proves once again that music can change destinies.

Ayron Jones sort l'artillerie lourde sur cet album, à coup de guitares saturées. Finalement, les meilleurs titres sont ceux justement qui ne respectent pas ce mantra et jouent plus dans la nuance, à l'instar de Blood In the Water ou The Sky Is Crying. Un album contrasté donc, qui pourra plaire à ceux qui ont une fibre rock marqué.

OTHER REVIEWS
EINAR SOLBERG: 16 (2023)
POP - Despite his obvious interpretative and compositional qualities, Leprous singer Einar Solberg is far from convincing with his first solo album. "16" is too long and rather boring.
BAI BANG: Sha Na Na Na (2023)
MELODIC HARD ROCK - Handicapped by an undignified production and a total lack of risk-taking, "Sha Na Na Na" leaves Bai Bang on the edge of a precipice into which it is bound to sink without any real rethinking.
