Monday, time for "Record Of The Week"
After shaking the world by the neck last year's monster album "Amber Galactic", which also got selected for "Record Of The Week" one year ago, it also snapped the 5th position on the best albums 2017. Really good for a bunch of Swedish old school rockers that turns back to their own roots in the music making, could say about 1975 and 1985 where bands like JOURNEY, TOTO, STEELY DAN, SUPERTRAMP, REO SPEEDWAGON among others had their primetime then.
Now it's time for the fourth album "Sometimes The World Ain't Enough" to make some place in the spotlight. The album follows in the same steps as the 2017's "Amber Galactic". Twelve songs in fifty-eight minutes of glorious AOR. The album opens up with the catchy high tempo tune "This Time" and a happy smile turns on. Follows up by "Turn To Miami", a tune that well could be been picked from the soundtrack to the movie "Miami Vice", a melodic piece with a catchy chorus. There are a few disco-heavy tunes, like "Paralyzed", "Pretty Thing Closing In" with its funky strut and "Winged and Serpentine" that will shake your body and get you up and dance. The title tune "Sometimes The World Ain't Enough" have a really inspiring vocal, a tune that well could be the title tune for a James Bond movie. "Moments Of Thunder" waves hands with TOTO and "Speedwagon" and "Barcelona" is two power pop tunes that follow up by the bombastic "Lovers In The Rain". The album closes with a love full nine minutes epic beauty "The Last Of The Independent Romantics", a melodic piece with incredible vocals and a guitar riff that is just amazing.
The album was released on June 29, 2018, via Nuclear Blast. The album was again produced by the band themselves and was recorded at Handsome Hard Music / Larsson Music Studio as well as Nordic Sound Lab in Skara, Sweden. Mixing duties were taken on by the band's guitarist/percussionist Sebastian Forslund and mastering was done by Thomas ”Plec” Johansson at The Panic Room. The band will hit the road, see the tour dates below and make sure you catch them live.
Sum: "Sometimes The World Ain’t Enough" is the best soundtrack for this summer, an infectiously fun record to play.
Today's tune "Lovers In The Rain", taken from the new album "Sometimes The World Ain't Enough", enjoy!
