Artist: Stan Bush
As one of most renowned singer songwriters in the Melodic Rock genre Stan
Bush’s albums have always been some of the finest examples of pure
Melodic Rock over the years and now in 2010 Bush returns with another
The album is as pure a slice of melodic rock you’ll hear this year and will
no doubt feature highly as one of his finest works. The album gets underway
with ‘Never Hold Back’ and straight away we are treated to a real
master class in how to deliver a Melodic Rock song.
Joining Bush on this album are Holger Fath on guitars, keyboards, Matt
Bissonette on the bass guitar and Matt Laug on drums. This is top bunch
of musicians to have behind you and they really show their class
throughout the album as it continues with ‘I’m Still Here’,
another classy slice of Melodic Rock with Bush at his vocal best.
The class act that is this album, continues with the spectacular ‘Don’t
Give Up On Love’ and superb keyboard enthused melodies of ‘Two
Hearts’, one of tracks of the album for me actually. This really
is Bush at his very best.
Everyone in the genre knows that Bush has produced some of the best ballads
around and this album continues the trend with the excellent ‘In My
Life’, then it's time to rock things up a bit with ‘Love Is The Road’
and the sweet guitar rich ‘If This Is All There Is’, another two
The title track ‘Dream The Dream’ carries on the excellent melodic tones
of this great album, as does the likes of ‘More Than A Miracle’, but
if I had to pick a favourite then ‘Your Time’ would be in the
running for sure. This one defines the genre and will surely be among
many fans favourites from the album.
