On Back From the Living, Stevie Salas comes crashing out of the gate with the funky, high-octane rocker "Tell Your Story Walkin,'" which boasts his ability to work a groove with pure hard rock muscle and deadly guitar firepower. Other tracks like "Start Again" and "God I'm Going Down" further emphasize these strengths, although the album's momentum starts sagging early on, due mostly to unfortunate sequencing and some undistinguished songs. Sonically, Back From the Living packs far more punch than Salas' debut, and the guitar sounds are more interesting, but the songs aren't as good.
