5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect progression from On Target, 5 Oct. 2010

This review is from: Cadence (Audio CD)
As has often been written, the Choir were fated by bad-timing with their debut release On Target. A superb album of catchy, singalong, radio friendly eighties metal, in a Bon Jovi/Mr Big style; it was doomed by the changing face of the biz. Grunge arrived, and all of a sudden this sort of music was "forgotten".

Well, of course, anyone who knows anything about music knows that trends don't count for much; they come and go. But quality in songwriting and musicianship will always shine through, and there is plenty of both in evidence here. Cadence doesn't just serve up more of the same, it clearly is a progression. If anything it is heavier than On Target but the songs are well crafted, and there are still some anthemic singalongs! Nice touch having Chris Voysey play some tasty leads on the final track. Anyone who knows David Reece's history will know that he cut his teeth playing in Minneapolis based band Dare Force. English guitarist Chris Voysey was a part of that so it seems fitting that he plays on this all these years later.

Good album, perhaps not as radio friendly as On Target (not that that this sort of music is considered radio friendly anyway these days), but any fan of good melodic, well crafted metal will love it. Buy it!
