I just love this CD. Each time I hear it I just feel good. One of my fondest memories recently is of picking up my two teenage daughters, a boyfriend and a random guy, to give them a ride home from a night club.

We were had Reece on, in the car, while I was told about their enjoyable evening. The story suddenly stopped as four out of the five of us suddenly started singing the chorus of "All the Way" at the top of our lungs. The `random' was both startled and entertained. I love that my whole family can have so much fun again and again from Dave's creativity!

I just broke off from writing some 'marketing copy' for my business because writing this seems more important right now!

The Reece in question is, of course, David Reece, who is probably still best known for his brief tenure in Accept after the departure of Udo Dirkschneider. He only sang on one album, "Eat The Heat", but has kept busy since then, lending his talents to the likes of Bangalore Choir, Lillian Axe and Gypsy Rose.

This, however, is his first ever solo album, and one that sprang from an encounter with uber producer Michael Voss. It sees him joining forces, in fine small world fashion, with former U.D.O. guitarist Andy Susemihl and ex Holy Moses bassist Jochen Funders on an excellent album of melodic hard rock. And that's very definitely rock, more than metal. For sure, there are plenty of meaty riffs and piercing solos, but it's always rooted in melody.

Reece is in good voice throughout and anyone who has enjoyed his earlier work will find a lot to enjoy in tracks like 'Before I Die', 'Fantasy Man' and 'I'll Remember You'.

Very impressed with this; David Reece has a superb, soulful voice, reminiscent of Davids' Coverdale and Lee Roth. In fact there are some strong Whitesnake influences here in the songwriting. These songs are damm good! Very anthemic, singalong, catchy tunes; Bon Jovi would be another comparison in the songwriting department.

Musicality and production is top notch: some superb guitar work; excellent lead tones and good ballsy power chord sounds. Very well produced and recorded.

Buy this, listen to it in the car, drive fast, die - you won't regret it. Ermm, you know what I mean, just buy it.

David Reece's first claim to 'Universal' recognition 5 Oct. 2009
By Nikiforos V. Skoumas - Published on Amazon.com
American singer David Reece, the former voice of "Accept" caused quite a stir in the melodic rock circles in 2008 as the lead singer of "Gypsy Rose" arguably laying his best ever performance on their second album "Another World". It is no wonder that Reece would become a much sought after name amongst artistic circles as he already took part on Metal Heaven's "Voices of Rock II" project, while at the same time claiming a solo career debuting with "Universal language".

The album, although slightly experimental, flows very naturally; in total it is a very relaxed performance when compared to "Gypsy Rose", perhaps a bit too relaxed as one would expect at least two or three aggressive songs in the vein of "Accept" or "Gypsy Rose" which unfortunately are not present here. In fact "Universal Language" leans more to the bluesy-hard rock sound of early "Whitesnake" which is not really surprising considering that David can easily stand toe to toe with the other, more famous, David (Coverdale). And there are quite a few strong tracks on this one: "Before I die", "Flying too Close to the flame", "I'll remember you" and "We were alive".
Furthermore Reece is the second ex-Accept member to debut his solo career in 2009 as guitarist Herman Frank also put out his first solo album "Loyal to none" in May and in comparison I have to say that "Universal Language" falls a bit short in terms of energy, aggression and overall performance flamboyancy. For that I have to give it four stars.

In conclusion, a very cohesive debut without a single bad song while all choruses are cleverly planned and well executed. The bluesy hard rock approach is more than welcome being a well tested approach by some of rock's greatest bands; still from a musician who has served in the "Accept" camp one would have expected more metallic riffs and definitely a more aggressive rhythm section.

A definite must for fans of early "Whitesnake" and "Coverdale- Page".
