Building on from the fantastic Metropolis this is an absolute belter.
Whats so great about this is 2 things . Steve Overlands voice is still as pure as it has been since the early 80's. This alone is incredible but to still be bringing out albums like this is just an absolute credit to these guys. The guitarist brings the bite and fire into Band Like I don't they have had before. The guitar riffs, breaks and harmonies are superb and the lead guitarist has the arrogance and confidence in his playing like a young Gary Moore in the late 70's with solos bursting out into life and the brought back into harmonise with Steve Overland so well.
This album is great at every level and does this band the credit they deserve.
This album comes with a sidekick of Rockville 2 with another set of original tracks - How many bands can bring in effect 30ish songs out of this calibre 1 go.
Well done FM : Saw them again last year on Indiscreet 25 years in manchester last March - brilliant concert and the guys came into bar to mix with punters at the end which was such a nice touch. The band played with smiles on their faces all night.
These guys are very much back in the frame, on form, have a real fire brand guitarist that kicks in big time and I expect the band are loving every minute now that bit wiser. They did not make it big time originally through bad management and timing - never the quality of their music or work rate in touring etc so its great to so them now and this time round there been noticed through the quality of their music that stands out and has the air play from Planet rock etc.
First class at every level.
