stunning Sci Fi Rock,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Metromania [German Import] (Audio CD)
The 4th and final of the albums released in the UK by Heavy Metal Records Label,this came wrapped in a stunning Rodney Matthews sleeve,arguably one of his best..
Opening with the upbeat driving rock of 'Escape to the Heights' with its electronic synths & 'drums soundscape and treated vocals,it may not be to everyone's taste,you could argue its a little dated but it just works,it worked then and still grabs me now.
In what would the final album by this line up,the band covers all the bases, Heavy rock with gutteral guitar on the superb 'Nightriders',while the title track bounces out of the speakers with an almost dance beat(proggy disco ? ha ha).
'All Life Is One' is carried along on a menacing repetive bass/drum track while the albums highlight 'Follow The Light' is a wonderful contradiction of prog rock keyboards,strutting guitars and an insanely catchy chorus provided by the female back up singers,it shouldnt work but it does,quite superb
