5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection still in Motion with The Hollies,
The Hollies never lost anything . They still have the music,They still have the sound . The album cover is beautiful with the colors of Hollies albums of the 60's & 70's . Even though Alan Clarke is not singing ,the harmony & perfection of their music will have you singing & tapping your foot through the beautiful melodies .
The song I really like is "She'd Kill For Me " The lyrics & melody makes me think of 1960's . Buy it & you won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars THE HOLLIES ESSENCE SOUND : SHE'D KILL FOR ME SONG,
THE HOLLIES SECOND ALBUM (AFTER 2006 "STAYING POWER" ALBUM) WITH PETER HOWARTH SINGER IS GREAT. "THEN, NOW, ALWAYS" IS PURE HARMONIES VOCALS IN THE HOLLIES STYLE. I KNOW THAT ARE NOT ALLAN CLARKE, GRAHAM NASH, TERRY SYLVESTER OR MICHAEL RICKFORS (I MISSED THEM) BUT NOW THE CAPITAINS HOLLIES BOAT ARE TONY HICKS (LEAD GUITAR, VOCALS AND HARMONIES) AND THE GREAT DRUMMER BOBBY ELLIOTT (BOTH ORIGINALS HOLLIES MEMBERS) TOGETHER LONGTIME HOLLIES RAY STILES (BASS, VOCALS, HARMONIES AND EX-MUD) AND IAN PARKER (KEYBOARDS). SINCE 2004 NEW MEMBERS ARE STEVE LAURI (GUITAR, VOCALS AND HARMONIES) AND PETER HOWARTH (LEAD VOCALS AND ACOUSTIC GUITAR), A FINE SINGER WITH ALLAN CLARKE SIMILAR VOICE.
THE HOLLIES NEW ALBUM (PRODUCED BY THE BASSIST RAY STILES) IS TOO MUCH FILLED OF FAVOURITES POP-ROCK TUNES IN THE HOLLIES STYLE: "THEN, NOW, ALWAYS (DOLPHIN DAYS)" (AN AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL HOLLIES SONG OWN BY BOBBY ELLIOTT AND MARK NELSON WITH TONY HICKS LEAD VOCALS), "IF YOU SEE HER" (GOOD POP-ROCK SONG), "ONE TOUCH" (PURE HARMONIES HOLLIES STYLE WITH TONY HICKS SITAR), "PASSENGERS" (ONE FAVOURITE TUNE WITH FORMIDABLE PETER HOWARTH VOICE AND FINE HARMONIES HOLLIES MEMBERS), "I WOULD FLY" (VERY GOOD BALLAD WITH FINE GUITARWORK BY TONY), "COMING HOME" (AN EXPERIMENTAL POP SONG IN THE HOLLIES STYLE), "I LIED" (OTHER ROCKER SONG FAVOURITE), "ONE WAY TICKET" (A TUNE WITH LATIN SOUND INFLUENCES MAYBE?), "TOO MUCH TOO SOON" (FAVOURITE POP-ROCK SONG WITH FINE VOCAL WORK AND HARMONIES HOLLIES STYLE), "UNFORGIVABLE" (ONE MORE FAVOURITE PETER HOWARTH LEAD VOCALS TUNE WITH GREATESTS HARMONIES HOLLIES MEMBERS), "HEARTS DON'T LIE" (OTHER FAVOURITE SONG TOO WITH FINE PETER HOWARTH LEAD VOCALS AND HICKS/LAURI HARMONIES) AND THE LAST ALBUM SONG, MY BEST AND FAVOURITE TUNE , "SHE'D KILL FOR ME" (OWN BOBBY ELLIOTT AND MARK NELSON SONG TOO), OH! I LOVE THIS SONG! THE BEST HARMONIES IN THE HOLLIES STYLE (COMEBACK TO THE 60 OR 70 YEARS) WHERE (LIKE ALLAN CLARKE) PETER REALLY SHINES VOCALLY AND TONY IS PLAYING THE SITAR AGAIN. THIS TUNE IS THE HOLLIES ESSENCE SOUND: ¡THE BEST VOCALS HARMONIES! THANK YOU, BOBBY (AND MARK NELSON OF COURSE!)FOR THIS FANS PRESENT: "SHE'D KILL FOR ME".
NOW, I'M WAITING THE NEXT HOLLIES ALBUM FILLED OF GREATEST SONGS WITH IMPATIENCE.
THE HOLLIES FOREVER!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fresh and accurate,
I can't help it. I miss Alan Clarke's magical voice. Nevertheless, the album is a good new version of the Hollies way of singing and playing songs. All recordings have been delicately crafted and the result is fine. I should give it a try, no doubt. Roberto from Argentina.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album from a great band,
Great album with very good songs. My favourite track on the album is 'I would fly' a lovely ballad.
Yes for me the Hollies are surely 'Then, Now, Always'.

As I've been a huge huge fan for nearly 50 years nothing this group does disappoints me and this CD certainly doesn't . Great listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars They've done it again !,
The Hollies have been my favourite band since the 60s. Just when you think they've 'done it all' they come up with yet another new way of showcasing their skills. Rock on !
