AOR Heaven 2012
Centred around the talents of singer, guitarist and keyboard player Klaus Luley (ex-Craaft and Tokyo) this is some fine and classy melodic rock.
Opener “Can’t Live Without You” is a big number, and “Mountain Of Love” dips into mid 80s melodic power pop territory, but does have some outstanding guitar work, including a solo that wouldn’t be out of place in a much heavier song. “Slipping Away” is more uptempo, and it does have a slightly crunchier feel. There’s a modern take on the Tokyo hit “Tokyo” which is smooth, polished, rocking and cracking. The guitar and vocals are good here, the keys, drums and bass providing a good drive.
“Don’t Want To See Your Face” has a strong riff, a darker sound with an uplifting rhythm.
Very strong melodic rock, some good song writing, and a real throwback to the 80s, with nods to rock, AOR and occasionally MOR. Enjoy.
