Customer Review

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost Great., 16 Jan. 2013
By 
This review is from: Sound of Drums, the (Audio CD)
I found out about this release quite by chance,as the album had been put back many months due to production difficulties and I eventually stopped looking for it. After I purchased it, it promptly disappeared again and at the present time is only available as an Australian import on Ebay. So,was it worth the wait? Well....Just about. The Rogue Traders unique musical style is still there,but I have to say that the new lead singer isn't a patch on the original. The singer's not bad,but Natalie was a hard act to follow. Possibly due to her acting career,Nat had a powerful,clear voice and was capable of injecting tons of energy and emotion into her songs. The new singer struggles to match that,and at times the lyrics are unclear and her voice gets buried in the music. Also,the guys sing on a few of the tracks.(I've always maintained that the Rogues should leave the singing to the lady!!).One of these tracks sounds like rap,of which I'm very much not a fan,and has no place here. (Put a "c" in front of rap to get my opinion!) In total though it's a decent album,the "Best of" disc 2 is good,but the overall package could have been great. Natalie is sorely missed.
