Holland - 12 points !,
This review is from: The Unforgiving (Special Edition) (Audio CD)
This album has it all going for it apart from one thing, most people will remain totally ignorant of its existence as it will never get mainstream radio play. This is a tradegy, although it does allow those of us in the know to feel a little smug at our discoveries of music like this.
In short it's top quality 80's style power rock with a modern metal twist and the best female vocalist that money can buy.
The voice of Sharon den Adel is simply stunning and her vocal range is astonishing. It's not as operatic as say Tarja, but it has a fabulous quality to it whether she is singing in the lower or upper range.
There are so many strong songs this it is impossible to single one out. They are each and every one as strong as the next.
So, if you like "big hair rawk" blowing in the wind machine, huge orchestration & insanely sing-a-long-able tunes then this is definitely for you.
And I'll tell you what, Faster and Faster for instance would do very well indeed for Holland at the Eurovision Song Contest (and I mean that in a good way)!
Definitely the best car music I've heard in a long time.
