I’ll never understand why this band didn’t get the commercial success, they deserve. To me they were always very close to Def Leppard, sometimes even better. With “Mood Swings II” we get the opportunity to re-discover the best album Harem Scarem have ever done. Sadly there isn’t much more to discover, than the three new tracks, a better production and a documentary about recording this album (on a bonus DVD). So long-time fans of this band may not decide they need the whole record. Any way – an amazing album with stunning songs remains a fantastic album, so everybody who missed the original “Mood Swings” and calls himself a fan of Melodic Hard Rock has to buy “Mood Swings II”, immediately!
