|DAVID REECE(Ex-Accept) - Compromise (2013) |
Talented American singer DAVID REECE is releasing today his second solo album "Compromise" on AOR Heaven Records.
Reece really shouldn't need any introduction, but for those of you who
haven’t heard that name before, the man has an impressive discography
through the years.
Having been more recognized thanks to his work with Accept in their late
'80s album, and since making his reappearance in the Melodic Hard Rock
world with the acclaimed 2008 Gypsy Rose album, one time Sircle Of
Silence frontman David Reece has made up for his more than decade long
absence from the scene.
Two Bangalore Choir albums, a Tango Down release, a CD as Reece-Kronlund
and a solo record, all confirming him as a singer of great muscular
voice, huge presence and one with a keen eye for a killer tune.
Keeping that ball and impressive workload rolling comes "Compromise",
the second solo Reece album and again if you are looking for someone to
sing their heart out in stunning style, then David's your man.
With vocals recorded at KMan studios in Blaine Minnesota and a slick
production by Kelly Peterson, "Compromise" houses a nice range of styles
from Melodic Hard Rock, Hard 'n Heavy and power ballads, allowing Reece
to really stretch out vocally while a stellar backing band featuring
Ronnie Parkes (7 Witches), Jack Frost (Savatage), Paul Morris (Rainbow,
Doro, Jurgen Blackmore) plus special guests Andy Susemihl (UDO) and the
skilled Christian Tolle on guitars, ensure the tracks are performed
Add to that the mix & mastering by Martin Kronlund & Joey Vera
(Armored Saint) providing 'the sound' and we should be in for another
unquestionable success from start to finish.
And so it proves with a punchy selection of tracks such as "Evil Never
Dies" which has a sizzling guitar presence, "Treasure Hunter", where the
beat and riff swagger with intent, a stomping rocker on "Where My Heart
Belongs" and the spiky hard 'n heavy opener "Disaster" very solid with
plenty of power, attitude and a killer chorus (which reminds of a
weightier solo David Lee Roth) marking this album out as a must listen
for Melodic Hard Rock aficionados, especially if the slightly harder
hitting side of the genre is your thing.
You have more melodic oriented, commercial numbers on "Along For The
Ride" and the bouncy, catchy keyboard / guitar / vocal trade off "Coast
To Coast", then soulful ballads like the sublime "Someone Beautiful"
which was written by Tom & James Martin from VEGA, and "Everything
to Everyone" where David’s bluesy vocal tones shine like a polished
There's a straight rocked up cover of Creedence Clearwater Revival's
"Fortunate Son" being good, if unessential among the rest of the
"Compromise" is another exciting Melodic Hard Rock release by Reece, and
a proof of his quality timeless, bluesy range and powerhouse control.
The songs are solid, catchy and David loves tackling a variety of styles
and one listen will tell you he has the voice to pull it off.
With musicians the calibre of those here and lyrics boasting a darn
sight more intelligence than your standard clichéd rock fair, Reece has
the firepower to back him up all the way into classic album territory.
The guitar work on this record is high in the mix providing an extra
punch and edge, but all is really polished and sounds clear.
"Compromise" easily gets a slot between the better Melodic Hard Rock
albums of recent months and let's be honest, forty minutes or so in the
company of Mr. Reece's voice never feels like any sort of compromise.
