Review: Sweet & Lynch – Only to Rise

SweetandLynchYou have to have been living under a rock for the past several years to have not noticed our current trend of celebrating all things retro. Whether it’s the revival or remake of your favorite 80s franchises like “The Karate Kid” or “Transformers,” the ironic mustache the barista is sporting at your local coffee shop, or “The Goldbergs” on point depiction of life in the 80s, you can be sure that old school vibes are in full effect. That same celebration has trickled down into the music world as well, with old soul artists like Sam Smith rising to the top of the charts and powerhouse Taylor Swift even naming her latest record, “1989,” in full celebration of the time. Now, rockers Michael Sweet (Stryper) and George Lynch (Lynch Mob, Dokken) are set to capitalize on the trend by joining forces as Sweet & Lynch with their debut record, Only to Rise.
