2002's Unfinished Business was the seventh studio album from UK-based melodic rockers Shy and the first new album from the band in more than a decade. Led by vocalist Tony Mills (now with TNT), Shy was always one of the better, if consistently overlooked `80s era melodic rock bands, and it was good to hear from them in the new millennium.
Unfinished Business is a very strong melodic rock album. It's got some of that `80s rock energy, but the band is obviously older and wiser, and the songwriting reflects that. It's a more elegant and polished Shy we're hearing here. Some things remain true though, like Tony Mills' very distinct and very powerful voice. Tony Harnell, who Mills would later replace in TNT, is the only other guy who sounds like this. It helps that the music is well written, performed flawlessly and loaded with great melodies.
Unfinished Business is a very strong comeback album from one of the better bands the melodic rock scene has to offer. If you were a fan back in the day, I'd highly recommend checking this album out. It makes a great starting point for those who are new to the band but enjoy similar bands like TNT, Tyketto, Giant and Strangeways.
