HONEYMOON SUITE returns with their latest album, “Alive,” marking a notable resurgence for the seasoned rock outfit. With a legacy spanning back to the mid-1980s, vocalist Johnnie Dee and guitarist Derry Greham lead the charge once again, showcasing their enduring songwriting prowess.

The album opens with a nostalgic nod to their past successes, featuring singles like “New Girl Now,” “What Does It Takes,” and the anthemic “Feel It Again.” These tracks serve as a reminder of the band’s heyday, resonating with both longtime fans and newcomers alike.

As the album progresses, HONEYMOON SUITE demonstrates a willingness to evolve, infusing their classic rock sound with contemporary sensibilities. Tracks like “Not Afraid To Fall” showcase a softer, more introspective side, adding depth to their repertoire.

Standout moments include the infectious energy of “Tell Me What You Want,” which channels the band’s trademark charisma and leaves listeners wanting more. While not every track reaches the heights of their past successes, there’s a consistency in quality that speaks to the band’s enduring appeal.

“Alive” culminates with the emotionally charged ballad “Doesn’t Feel The Way,” serving as a poignant finale to an album that sees HONEYMOON SUITE at the top of their game. Overall, “Alive” is a testament to the band’s longevity and a welcome addition to their storied discography.
