|TOKYO - Fasten Seat Belts [Yesterrock remaster] (2012) |
Following on from the recent CD re-release of the excellent self-titled debut album from TOKYO (already presented here), now sees the light the second recording of these '80s German AOR stars: the awesomely titled "Fasten Seat Belts".
Not only the title is good, the music is even better delivering some true consistent AOR Melodic Rock tunes in the best Euro eighties fashion.
Fans (like me) of the adorable classic keyboard driven AOR will love "Fasten Seat Belts". There's tons of very well produced catchy songs, sometimes treading the Melodic Rock ground with precise guitars and a sonically solid rhythm section.
All are good, being the highlights "Dreamer" and "World of Promises" - seriously I would buy this album just for these two songs alone.
If that's not enough, we have a newly recorded version of the first single "Keiko" plus other four previously unreleased bonus tracks; "Rainy Days", "Who Will Stop The Rain", "Turn Off The Light" and "Mama".
All are pre-production demos (with very good sound) that were recorded during the late '80s, and sees the band exploring a more Lite AOR territory.
Tokyo certainly appear to experiencing something of a resurgence at the moment and with this album it's easy to see why.
Before the strong heat wave of AOR bands began to sweep the world, this five piece German band commanded by Robby Musenbichler was already swinging with two studio albums in 1982.
These recent reissues (the third and fourth will be reissued soon as well) have even been enough for AOR Magazine to run a huge feature spread on a band that deserves to be discovered by new generations, and why not, veterans who missed them.
