Sjak : Barely two years after the release of Martina’s very successful second album ‘Unity’ this Swedish beauty is back with successor ‘We Will Align’. Just like on the previous album she has collaborated very closely with producer and co-writer Jona Tee (H.E.A.T.), and where necessary also help was obtained by co-writers like Erik Martensson (Eclipse, W.E.T.) and Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big) to name just a few. This has resulted in Martina’s most mature album so far, on which she clearly demonstrates to belong to the best female melodic rock singers around.
Supported by drummer Bjorn Hoglund, bass player Nalle Pahlsson, guitar player Stefan Bergstrom and the already mentioned Jona Tee on keyboard, Martina brings us ten fantastic melodic rock classics, which excel because of the fantastic melodies, the catchy choruses and the awesome vocal performance of miss Edoff herself. There are plenty of examples of great songs to be found, but for me personally ‘Turn The Page’, the beautiful ballad ‘Face The Mirror’, the heavy ‘Lay Down Your Arms’ and the very catchy title track ‘We Will Align’ are just a tad better than the remaining six tracks, which are also very worthwhile listening to by the way. With this ‘We Will Align’ Martina Edoff brings us one of the best melodic rock releases of this year. Now let’s hope that she will perform this material on stage somewhere in the Benelux area!
