This is stunning AOR of the highest calibre with excellent girl vox. Likely to appeal to fans of Def Leppard, Heart, FM or indeed anyone who appreciates melodic rock music.
After an 18 year hiatus (!!!) ROMEO'S DAUGHTER triumphantly return with an album to equal their legendary and eponymous first album from 1988.
That first album was partly produced by 'Mutt' Lange (who also worked with Def Leppard) and partly by John Parr (St. Elmo's Fire). It presented a melodic AOR style with refreshing originality and showcased a band with the compositional ability to write 'outside the box' and avoid the formulaic predictability of many of their contemporaries. Their second album 'Delectable' from 1992, for me at least, did not compare with the first in terms of song-smithery or production, but is still worthy of investigation.
After the band's demise (in the mid-90s) the first album achieved 'cult status' and was on the playlist of most 'in-the-know' AOR fans and copies were also changing hands for large sums of money. Its inevitable re-release in 2011, led to the band reforming and presenting us with this, their third album, 'Rapture'.
So what is this the new album like ?
It's a stunning return that makes it hard to believe the band have been away so long. Whilst some 'comeback' acts find it difficult to re-capture their identity, ROMEO'S DAUGHTER sound like they've never been gone. Musically, the album is comparable with that magical first album. Production and musicianship is top-notch and Leigh Matty's crystalline vocals are more mature and magical than ever.
The opening track 'Trippin' Out' obviously attempts to emulate 'Heaven In The Back Seat' (from the first album), but in fact surpasses it.

To say I'm blown away by this comeback album would be the understatement of the century! There is literally not a bad song on the album. From start to finish it's superb! The production is stunning, very reminiscent of the first album and the songwriting is sublime. Every song has you singing a long, really brilliant!! It's like they'd never been away! I've been playing it round and round on repeat since I bought it! Easily the best album I've bought in many years and I buy a lot of music! The artwork is lovely too! You have pure brilliance in every way here! You need to have this in your life!

After so long, Leigh and co finally released album number three and it is simply sublime. After the (unfairly) luke warm reception of Delectable this one had to hit the spot. And does! 19 years later hee hee.

From the opener 'Trippn' Out' the quality shows as to the song writing skills of all concerned, in particular Craig Joiner. This has been on loop in my van since I downloaded it from Amazon and I was thinking today, so many of these songs are worthy of playlist on Radio 2! Anyone out there know Ken Bruce lol?

Quite simply, if you are a Romeo's Daughter fan, just get it, you'll love it and hey...spread the word. Here's looking forward to a tour and maybe not such a long wait to the next album eh?

Love it, love it, love it!

One of the best comeback albums I've heard in many a long year. 12 brilliant tracks, all killer, no filler. The band are on top form and Leigh Matty sounds as good as she ever did. Saw the band supporting FM recently and they were fantastic live. If you love good, rocking AOR in the style of Magnum and Journey, do yourself a favour and get this album.

20 years between albums is a long time. but its great to hear the velvet voice of Leigh Matty again.
the album is quality pop/A.O.R. The track Alive is superb and the album as a whole was worth the wait.

I must admit, for some reason, I was expecting something a bit more prog' or heavy rock, but I was still taken with this album with Leigh Matty's fantastic voice (eat your heart out X factor) and 12 wonderfully produced tracks. You do wonder why an album as good as this never gets the air play and recognition it deserves.

All I can do is reiterate here what previous reviewers have said. This album is truly excellent! In fact one of the best CD 's I've heard in many years and I buy a lot of music. The quality of Craig Joiner's songwriting here is first class. The sound is one old fans will unmistakably recognise as 'Romeo's Daughter' but with a very contemporary feel. Every song is well crafted with beautiful melodies and harmonies coming from Leigh Matty and the guys. Some great rock songs and lamenting ballads, great musicianship, excellent production, this has to be one of the greatest 'comeback' records ever. Over time this may well be recognised as their best work to date.

If you like AOR, rock, melodic rock or quite honestly just great songs and great playing you won't be disappointed with this album.
As a footnote could I suggest that if you are a fan of Romeo's Daughter and would like them to continue, please consider getting out to see them live and support them on the road. I saw them recently at the Cluny in Newcastle for £13.00 (an absolute musical bargain) where they were fantastic and deservedly got a rousing reception but the turn out could have been better!
