Artist: Stan Bush
   Title: Dream The Dream
   Label: Frontiers Records

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 stunning album.

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 gems!

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.

The album keeps throwing out stunning songs and another is ‘All That I Am’.  The album comes to a close with ‘Sam’s Theme (Touch)', which rounds off Bush’s eleventh album to date and one that will rate high amongst his very best.
