Sound: A pretty well made album by one of the most forgotten bands in history: The Danish band "Merzy". Style-wise they're a hard rock band with roots on the blues and boogie. Mixed with some 80's Rhoads-style heavy soloing and some "thrashy" breakdowns every now and then, they make some pretty interesting variations. But they are not as generic as you might expect, as they from time to time tend to hint in many musical directions in a creative way, which for the genre is a pretty rare breed. The guitarist is pretty amazing to say the least. The guitar work itself is presented with such confidence that playing air-guitar in your room easily becomes a second nature. When I first bought the album I didn't actually expect anything special given the genre. But this is a actually good thing for the band, because it makes breathing-room for all the surprises (big or small) that they do. // 8

Lyrics: There isn't much to say about the singer except that he's doing blues, hard rock, ballads, high's and low's which fits the music quite well. It's not bad at all, but it's been heard before. // 5

Overall Impression: If hard rock is a fusty room and somebody opens the window to ventilate you've got Merzy. // 8
