4.0 out of 5 stars ...melodic metal marvel..., 21 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Crystallized (Audio CD)
I vaguely recall Wicked Sensation from a good few years back. They were touted as being one of the next big things in melodic hard rock, but it all seemed to go a bit pear shaped, and the band just seemed to vanish. After receiving this, I hunted around and found a copy of their debut "Reflected", and it really was good.

They only released one more album - "Exceptional" in 2004 but despite tours with the likes of Saxon, Saga, Nazareth and many others, it just didn't happen for them, and the inevitable "musical differences" resulted in their 2006 split. But now, four years on, original guitarist Michael Klein and vocalist Robert Soeterboek are giving it another bash And if there is any justice, then this should surely see them crack it, because it's a cracker.

Ably straddling the worlds of hard rock and metal, it sounds fabulous, thanks no doubt to bassist and producer Dennis Ward, whose track record is second to none. If the rest of the year sees the world of hard rock suffering from a shortage of crunchy riffs, then it's because they're all on here, no more so than on album highlight 'My Turn To Fly' which sees Helloween fella Andi Deris popping in for a bit of a singalong.

There's plenty of other gems here with the likes of 'Fistful Of Dreams', 'Give It Up' and the Arjen Lucassen enhanced 'Give It Up', the first amongst equals. An absolutely stunning release, which fans of metal tinged hard rock should be snapping up instantly.
