The Radio Sun, Outside Looking In, 2016
These guys from Down Under are wasting no time! Already album number 3 in hardly 3 years and they are already working on number 4. But before I get ahead of myself, let’s first take a look at this one. The quartet have managed to step their game up a bit more, finding a great balance between up tempo rockers and some damn fine ballads.
Producer Paul Laine (ex Danger Danger) not only found the right balance in the sound, he also adds his vocals in a duet with singer Jason Old on the track Wink And Smile. But there is no shortage of vocals either way, since all the members contribute to that massive sound. And expert guitar slinger Steve Janevski (also Black Majesty) has been buzzing of joy with Brett Garsed playing a guest solo on Falling For You.
As was to be expected, a lot of feel good choruses find their way unto the album. With lead single Switch Off The World Tonight leading the way with its Damn Yankees quality. Other references are Firehouse, Trixter or Warrant.
So if you are a sucker for melody, huge sound, ripping solos, or in short all the great rock music from the past, then this is a sure winner for you. Pick it up from label Melodic Rock Records or find it in a store near to you. It rocks!
