Everything is perfect from the guitar sounds to the ethereal sound effects. The musicianship is top shelf, and while the vocals fit the Geddy Lee mold, Rocky has her own beautiful style.
After giving Peace a first listen our HiFi speakers reminisced bands such as Sir Lord Baltimore and Led Zeppelin and the combination of a different atmosphere in the band brought forth by the new drummer Oskar. The hypnotic catchy drum patterns, hypnotizing minor guitar scales and vocals from the graveyard were everything we expected and more.
The guitars are big and crunchy, the low end laid down by Taylor and Poullian delivers a nice kick without sounding to muddy or booming and of course Justin Hawkins’ signature falsetto is soars above it all.
‘True Rockers’ is an old skool treat from the album artwork to the true rock n roll spirit which exudes emotionally from the speakers.
Space Elevator is still not a band one can quickly and easily shuffle off into one category or another, but they’ve definitely honed in on a particular sound that very much works…
That story unfolds as an emotionally charged narrative, spanning obsession, unrequited love, and destruction. The plot takes place at the turn of the next century, and the plan is to have the novel available at the same time as the record release.
Without a doubt it’s an album of top notch material every bit on a par with the debut and undoubtedly another firm favourite with enduring appeal.
The brilliance in this legendary catalog of songs performed live on stage by this caliber of musician would surely have been a religious experience to behold.
The current New Wave of Melodic Hard Rock bands has really kicked it up a notch. Groups like H.E.A.T., W.E.T., Station, and so many others have taken this genre and reinvigorated it not only with a shot of youthful approach…
any fan of old school, balls to the wall hard rock? Again, this is a must-have. I’m simply blown away by the magnitude of this album.
