review by Salvo "Lovedeath" Russo____
by the front man Joanne Aaron comes back after the good “Sweet
& Deceitful” with another good release that nothing adds to this
style yet it represents a nice issue!
rock’n’roll alternates to melodic moments in which rock is mixed
with a fascination gothic style typical of the band; After the
intro called “Arrival”, it’s pure energy with the
first track “Glory of the shame”..A perfect song to begin a
live-show!!! Pure hard rock 80’s style that reminds of the best hit of
that period! The band is able to amaze me with the follow
“Reflections”, a modern rock song that begins in an obscure
atmosphere but it evolves into a typical rock-style!
space for the avoidable “One last shot”, before one of the most “hot” song called “Fading yourself”; It’s a mid-tempo
characterized by that typical melody that will make the joy of all girls
that are ready to sing under the stage!...It’s another heart-attack
song that comes before the single “Planet of the sun” that sounds
similar to the already mentioned song! Another fashion song in which
Joanne is finding the romantic side of the band! Nothing new…but this
is the groove that fans wants by them!
the time for a ballad! “A song for the broken hearted” is a crying
ballad that is characterized by that distinctive melancholy, even if
we’re far from the intensity of
“About my sorrow”…
time to rock with “Sinners nights Misty mornings”…a song full of
energy that seems to be written expressly for live-shows!!!
is another mid-tempo but it doesn’t find that usual groove and,
in my opinion, it has been written without a definite idea….
F*cking around” is a rock song that mixes shadows of modern rock with
the atmosphere of old style….Joanne & C. find good chords and the
song seems to get a good impact!
Past” is an avoidable mid-tempo song that seems almost a
ballad, but it doesn’t find the typical intensity….“We
can’t go on” is good rock song in which there are shadows of
obscurity…An original track but nothing but a fair one!
conclusion , this album gets some good hits but also mediocre
compositions…Sometimes the band finds difficulties to create something
new, but I notice that when they are inspired, they’re able to make
great songs full of pathos! All those who appreciate this style will
find this album a good release for this year!
