Label : AOR Heaven | Archive under hardrock / aor

Release type: Full-length CD

Willem : Steve Newman has been a well-known name in the AOR-melodic rock scene since the late nineties. Recently his tenth album 'Siren' has been released through German AOR Heaven. The opening track 'Scar Of Love' is a great melodic rock track, followed by the fantastic second track 'Had Enough' (the first listen to this great song already gave me goose bumps!), fantastic. 'Arcadia is a great AOR-track, after which things rock on with 'Another Bitch Of A Night', a song with a great riff. Power-ballad 'When It Comes To Love' is also very much worth mentioning here. It's a shame that the first half of the cd is far better then the second half, which lacks the quality of the first 6 tracks. The eleventh track 'The Foolish One' could have been deleted from this album, the only bad song on this album. Newman sings great on this cd, the axework is great and also the production. Fans of Newman can buy this cd directly, they're going to like it. Overall a fine album (that could have been a winner with a better second half), I think I'm going to pick 'The Art Of Balance'(2010) from my cd-rack again…
