second solo album from Royal Hunt gifted keyboard player is a must buy.
The multi talented Andersen had put together a musical masterpiece full
of blistering guitars and the familiar polished keyboard's you expect
from this musical maestro.
The opening track 'Coming Home' is much in the Royal Hunt vein with the
mix of progressive rock and hard rock going well together. 'Tell me Why'
is more of a traditional sounding rock track with the attention more on
the guitar than keyboards. 'Arena's' opening will have Royal Hunt fans
approval with the familiar heavy guitar intro and the familiar back beat
of drums and bass providing a backdrop to the obligatory keyboard solos.
'Desperate Times' is a broody epic with meaningful vocals, classic
guitar riffs reminiscent of Dio's 'Last in Line'. The rest of the album
is much in a similar vein. All in all a well put together album which
grows on you. The more you listen to it the better it becomes.
