01/07/2014, Filip VAN MUYLEM

Liv 'Till you die' is a very symphonic and old school Hard Rock track. The voice of Bob Catley is one of the kind I love, just as the backings and the sound. I think a bit about The Scorpions, but they really have their own sound (a bit commercial, but that isn’t a pain for my ears).. 'Unwritten Sacrifice' and 'Failing for The Big Plan' (is almost a rock ballad) are nicely polished and well worked out tracks with simply the best sound you can imagine for it! They are both very catchy! 'Crying in the Rain' sounds a bit bluesy; fact is that I love the combination of the vocals with the guitars and the melancholic sound. 'Too many clowns' is a great title for a track and is a well driven and up tempo track, fuelled by great guitars! 'Midnight angel' sounds like a nice ballad. I love the raw vocals in the start. It's a very emotionally loaded track, again something I can cherish for a long time! It has a great melody and the acoustic part is also my favorite thing! This one could grow out to be a top 100 ballad (of all ballads, ever created). I can feel the passion! 'The art of Compromise' is something that a lot of politicians needs to learn and it turned out to be a great track, very melancholic, catchy, vocally powered up! It's yet another pearl! I like the piano and the sliding guitar! I believe that a lot of fans will use their lighter during this track and wave along (if they play it during a gig). 'Don't Fall Asleep' is yet another great ballad with the same piano. It seems like they know how to craft these rare diamonds and really excel in it! 'Wisdom had its day' starts as a ballad and changes into an emotionally loaded rocker with symphonics backing up! 'Burning river' is a great rocker! I love the guitars in it, they really shake you up! Just when I taught I had heard the best ballad the last track starts ' Valley of Tears': it is a real tearjerker, a real topper! It gives you a positive feel and that is the best way to end this beauty!

WOW! Thumbs up!
