Product Description

Product Description

Legendary AOR singer/songwriter Stan Bush is ready to deliver The Ultimate and MelodicRock Records is proud to announce a partnership to bring Stan's all-new studio album to fans worldwide. MelodicRock Records has signed Stan Bush for the release of The Ultimate in Europe, with Stan's own LA Records handling the USA release. Worldwide icon of melodic rock Stan Bush is best known for his song The Touch, made famous by Transformers: The Movie. An anthem for Transformers fans around the world, "The Touch" was released for Guitar Hero in 2009 and remixed by High Moon Studios in 2013 for their hit video game Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. It has also been featured on NBC's Chuck, FOX's American Dad, Deep Silver's Saints Row IV and in the motion picture Boogie Nights. In 2010, Stan Bush released the audio gem Dream The Dream, and one of the music videos, Your Time, became a viral hit on YouTube. Bush's active involvement with social media channels like YouTube and Twitter keeps his ever-growing fanbase engaged, while he remains on top of his game musically. Stan s critically-acclaimed 2007 release In This Life was named Album of the Year by RockUnited.com! It features Til All Are One, the official theme of the global gathering of Transformers fans, BotCon. In 1997, Stan Bush won an Emmy Award for Best Original Song for his track "Til I Was Loved By You." Another Bush original, "Capture the Dream," was featured at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. His songs are heard in two Jean-Claude Van Damme films: Kickboxer and Bloodsport. Stan has co-written with top songwriters like Jonathan Cain (Journey,) Jim Vallance (Bryan Adams, Aerosmith,) and Paul Stanley of KISS. Stan has toured extensively throughout the United States and Europe in his storied career. The Ultimate is Stan Bush's 12th studio album and delivers his most electrifying work yet! Reuniting with Touch collaborator Lenny Macaluso for the powerful title anthem, The Ultimate sees Bush return with the kind of uplifting motivational rock that has become his signature. The Macaluso track Thunder in Your Heart gets reinvented for The Ultimate album, which also contains the soaring anthems Heat of the Battle and Unstoppable. Stan Bush's new album The Ultimate offers trademark tracks like Stand in the Fire alongside the heartfelt introspection of Love Again, The Memory of You and Something to Believe as Bush takes on love, loss and the search for meaning. With his latest release, the veteran rocker strikes the perfect balance between his high-octane, positively-charged style and mature, emotive song-craft. Track listing: Something To Believe; The Ultimate; Heat Of The Battle; Love Again; Stand In The Rain; Unstoppable; Thunder In Your Heart; The Journey; The Memory Of You; If I Am Not Lovin' You; The Touch (Power Mix)

4.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate 29 Mar 2014
this is probably his best work to date. Beautiful melodies, heart-full performances, a solid guitar work and, most of all, well-written songs that will please every melodic fan out there! "Something To Believe" is simply a great opener; melodic as it gets with a killer chorus line to sing-a-long for days and Bush's amazing vocal performances! "Heat Of The Battle" is a punchier one with an updated, 'modern' rock vibe that features a cool riff and solo. "Love Again" is very good power ballad while "Thunder In Your Heart" is one of these kinda of songs that makes you wanna push the repeat button again and again! Pure melodic rock bliss with such a memorable chorus!! Brilliant stuff! "The Journey" is another highlight from this new record!

One of the best melodic rock/AOR albums of 2014 so far!!! Stan Bush achieved to release an extremely melodic rock album full of beautiful melodies, catchy songs and top notch performances!!! Well done!!!

Great AOR cd. If you've got the last few Stan Bush albums you'll know what to expect and indeed it's more of the same.
Well produced, well played, well presented and well written AOR. No need for another version of The Touch though...

5.0 out of 5 stars If you've enjoyed the past two albums, you'll love this one 25 Mar 2014
By jeffrey343 - Published on Amazon.com
Stan Bush seems to be getting better with age. "In This Life" and "Dream The Dream" were excellent, and "The Ultimate" continues that trend. As with those prior two albums, he again partners with Holger Fath as producer as well as guitarist & keyboardist. You get several excellent anthems, with "Stand In The Fire" perhaps the best he's ever delivered. The "relationship" songs are also very strong. He does play it safe, not venturing out of his familiar territory, but I can't argue about the overall quality of the material.

If you're not familiar with Stan Bush, a good reference point would be the music of 30 years ago, with Survivor (Jimi Jamison era) being a good place to start. Throw in some Journey and Foreigner and Bad English and even some Loverboy, and remember all the great soundtrack tracks from that era, and you'll have a good idea of what to expect. Bush has more of an everyman voice than the artists I referenced, but it is still an excellent voice for this material. The sound is polished, with a perfect blend of guitar and keyboard without being too heavy or too fluffy. I will admit that the lyrics in the more anthemic tracks can be as cheesy as anything that came from the 80s, but I'm a guy who takes comfort in that.

All in all, this is an excellent album for those who enjoy this type of music.
