“Don’t Say You Love Me,” comes in with that fat synth intro and you just know that it’s going to be a fun song. The song swaggers around and the vocals and guitars meet one another in their little exchange for favours quite nicely. “Shelter of the Night,” keeps up the form with the synth intro, taking things one by one. The grandness of the whole song is encapsulated by the sweeping lead lick that comes in about fifteen seconds into the song. “Freedom Road,” is a soaring rocker, with a driving punch that leaves the listener desperate for more. The vocals provide the perfect story telling manual. “A Little Drop of Poison,” is dark and foreboding in the intro, with the piano painting a dark picture. The melodies then turn the song into a lament. “What A Fool I’ve Been,” is hardcore eighties rock and roll, right down from the synth to the riffage.
“Overload,” strives in with swagger, and dances upon the route. “Heart of Stone,” a solid number that produces some interesting counterlays between the vocals and the piano melodies, bringing the listener into a thoughtful mood. “The Night,” swaggers into being with some definitive riffing and a sharpness that brings about some serious thoughtfulness. “New Orleans,” changes things up with the introduction of the acoustic guitars in the interplaying melodies, before the guitars come in with heaviness. “All The Right Moves,” swaggers and grooves from the start.
The album is out on 26th April via Frontiers Music.
