|LOST WEEKEND - Evermore (2013) |
British Melodic Rockers LOST WEEKEND always have been a personal favorite. Through an impeccable 18-year career these criminally underrated and talented musicians released one great album after another.
It was around their third opus in 2002 that legendary Magnum singer Bob Catley invited the band to support him on his solo European tour for which the group again impressed from the start, this resulted in Lost Weekend being asked to write the songs for Catley's next solo album Spirit Of Man. Even guitarist David Thompson played on it.
Now, after a brief two year hiatus Lost Weekend are back with a brilliant brand new CD; "Evermore", again having once again teamed up with excellent Swedish producer Martin Kronlund and releasing it via the AOR Heaven label.
More AOR laden than never before, "Evermore" is an stylized Melodic Rock gem of the modern times.
You have it all here; multi layered vocals and harmonies, twin guitars delivering delicate and at the same time sharp riffs and solos, keyboards galore that are twinkly combined with a bass that feels like a heartbeat and drums that kick it all up and bring it to life.
From the marching opener "Reach For The Sky", followed by the heavenly synth-driven AOR of "Love Will Find You" (one of THE songs of the year) to the melodic rock bliss of awesome numbers like "The Real World", "Live For Tomorrow", "Ain't No Friend Of Mine" or "Do You Remember", this CD is a pure delight to the years.
The gorgeous midtempos "Got To Make It Through" or title track "Evermore" shows Lost Weekends's pure classy British lineage, while ballads "Falling By The Wayside" and "Angel Sublime" are really sublime indeed.
There's no need to add much more to describe Lost Weekend's "Evermore": it's a must.
Fans of pure, classic British Melodic Rock / AOR don't hesitate to purchase this fantastic album, already in my 'Best Of' list this year.
