Mike & co are at it again!,
This review is from: On Fire (Audio CD)
In today's mainstream / pop-star / nu-metal dominated world, Mike Amott stands out as a savior to all of us fans of music with substance. Without wanting to appear generous on the superlatives, Amott is a veritable beacon, sheding light on what "real" rock should be like. To put it simply, the man rocks.
On Fire isn't just about one man though. Powerful lyrics, strong riffs, incredible solos and refreshingly old-school vocals - in fact just what we've come to expect from the Beggars. Right from the outset, you just "know" that this is special (and boy does that not happen enough these days).
The solo on Look Back easily ranks among the top 3 I've heard in the last decade or so; Tall Tales is one of those spngs you can just have on repeat all day - and that's only 2 songs out of 11! Trust me - this is money well spent.
