review by Salvo "Lovedeath" Russo____
To get the essence of the heart.
album is a precious box for me….A box of emotions….
years ago Shylock realized a true masterpiece of Melodic Power Rock
called “Welcome to Illusion”…An album full of emotions played with
an original sound and a sensitive way, in order to create melodies
enhanced by a very incredible arrangement ..catchy but great in all
band returns after 3 years and the result is about the same…
I feel the lack of ballads like “Late Night Show” or “Lose you”
contained in the previous work, ballades that would be able to break the
coldest soul thanks to astonishing crying melodies…but this new album
too gets many heart-attack- songs that are the confirm of an original
band that can be appreciated both by all melodic rock fans and by
those who likes Hard-Rock, and also Him, Negative, ecc…
sound gets an incredible easy arrangement valorized by the band, able to
create great structured songs, played in a awesome way!!
Refrains are soaked with much sensitiveness that seems to get the essence of the heart….and even if there are a couple of mediocre ideas, the whole album is a “box of emotions”.
Schenk gets a great voice and can express deep sensations in every
interpretation, supported by a band able to give the soul to every song!!!
The dynamics of the song are rendered at the top by a perfect execution
made by every members that gets the soul of every note…
of the songs of this album get all the characteristics to be a rock-hit,
and it’s hard to describe every single song… It’s like a piece of a puzzle that creates a perfect picture…
I try to describe this travel ….
Life” opens the album…Pure modern-rock with all the characteristics
of old school!!! The melody seems to turn on the lights into this
like that” is another rock song played with their unmistakable style
that joins a particular melodic rock attitude mixed to an amazing
sensitiveness that evokes a deep mood in every note!!!!
keeps on the same direction …and the dream goes on…..
feel “ is an incredible hit characterized by a great rhythmic and by
the usual unmistakable refrain…UNIQUE!!!! I can’t stop
to play this song!!!
The beautiful “The rain” is pure modern-Shylock rock.. This is the right definition!! It’s characterized by Matthias` great voice…what a great voice!!!!
“Ocean” is the band shows to give the right importance to electronic
effects to create a better atmosphere!!
is another hit!!!! The good melody is made through an easy structure
that gets a great refrain!
potential single is “Again”…a song characterized by a deep feeling
even if it’s immersed into a rock dream!
not very inspired song, in my opinion, is “Hunting High & Low”
that doesn’t find the usual deep approach in the mood, and also
“Fading Memory” is not at the top…
album finds again its dream with “New Attraction” that is a Power
ballad that gets an incredible refrain full of sweetness and
determination…what a beautiful song!!!!!
album goes on with a couple of valid
songs that are “Anybody out there” and “I wanna live” before
closing with a song dedicated to Thomas Hässler
(ex-footballer and owner of MTM music) called “Farewell to the
Champion”, that is a great aor-anthem full of passion and
characterized by Shylock's great style…
great band and a great cd ..
