Luck is the 3rd studio album from the Swansea/Barnsley/Dutch sextet, The Storys.
It is also likely to be their final album, as the band announced plans to split after two farewell sold out gigs at the Grand Theatre in Swansea on 18th and 19th June.
To say that this album should be the soundtrack to summer 2010 is an understatement. Known for their tight vocal harmonies, excellent songwriting and quality musicianship, Luck combines all these qualities and takes them to the next level.
Kicking off with lead off single, the fantastic "Everybody Wants You To Make It", the band captivated this listener with its clever lyrics and play on words too. Stand out tracks for me ...well how long have you got ? Long Way Up rocks along with massive guitar work from Rob Thompson, All Inside, with Steve Balsamo's heartfelt vocal and Alan Thomas's gargantuan piano tugs at the heartstrings, and Please Come Home, featuring vocals from the delectable Rosalie Deighton, evokes images of a loved one far far away.
How these guys have never made it big is just beyond me...and countless others.
Go out and get yourself a slice of Luck...you never know, it maybe just what is needed to stop the band parting.....but if they do go ahead with their intentions, what a way go to go out !!!
