The Answer delivery another quality rocking album. Top live band who must be seen - maturity well beyond their years.

The Answer set a very high benchmark with their debut, comparisons with Zeppelin and Free can only raise expectations so subsequent albums are bound to be subject to close scrutiny. I've followed this band since the 'Keep Believin' ep and while I will always hold their debut album 'Rise' as an all time classic, 'Revival' is to date their most consistent and cohesive album. If you haven't seen them live then I would recommend you make the effort as the albums don't quite do them justice. Pop music is manufactured before people's eyes on T.V. these days and people still buy it,so albums like this get 5 stars from me!

I don't think anyone will argue that their debut album Rise was a cracking album, but personally I felt the followup Everyday Demons was a tad disappointing (at least by their standards).

Glad to say, Revival is their return to form, a cracking album from the outset, with no obvious "duffers"...

If you loved Rise (or Classic Rock genre in general), then this surely delivers.

The Answer go from strength to strength with this their 3rd Album. From the bluesy opening to "Waste your Tears" until the "Lights are Down", every track is winner. "Nowhere Freeway" and "One More Revival" are the stand out tracks for me. Simply Brilliant.
Catch this band live and you won't be disappointed.

They just get better & better and this double cd reflects their energy as displayed live on stage with ACDC tour. The individual members all play their part to the full and even a 'famous' cover is a very fine rendition with feeling!

Firstly I want to start by mentioning that I am a fan of this band. I thought the first album crackled, the second album was mindblowing, but the third? It has always been said that the second album is difficult because the band has to write in a shorter space of time. The Answer's third album is, in my view, a clear departure from the direction of the first two. It is more updated and has been influenced by their trip to America. Being a musician I can appreciate the need to progress and stretch a little, it can show how much depth you have. However, I found it a disappointment. Where was the magic of Comfort Zone or Walkin Mat? Instead I put Revival on and after a short time took a look at what track was playing and realised that it was on track four, I had listened to four tracks and they all sounded too similiar. No one track really stood out, which is a shame as this band has been described as Led Zeppelin in their hey day. So it marks a change of direction. I recall reading an Iron Maiden article and the writer mentioned that Maiden didn't mess with a successful formula, even going as far to say that if Maiden departed radically from it then the band would suffer. I hope The Answer return to style of the second album, not to repeat it, but to rediscover the magic that it contains.

A terrific album from a great outfit. I can't understand why more people haven't heard of this band, they are the real deal. Recommended.

A very good album by an extremely talented band. First saw them supporting AC/DC and have been a fan ever since.

Fantastic, long awaited album from a favourite Classic Rock band - exciting vocals from Cormac, strong base lines from Micky, James as powerful as ever on drum and stunning lead guitar from Paul - well worth the wait. Can't wait to catch the live.
