Cor : The debut album ‘Heading For The Night’ had some true highlights between generally very average songs. The second album of Wheel In The Sky is much more well balanced; ‘Beyond The Pale’ contains over forty minutes of catchy tunes with a strong seventies foundation. Some catchy rockers in the line of the later Hellacopters work, or Imperial State Electric (‘Beyond The Pale’ or ‘Undead Love’) are combined with some strong The Who influences (‘Rivers Of Dust’) or a tasteful and cunningly made musical tapestry (‘Afterglow’), and many other luscious melodic rock variants. Also other (more Scandinavian) current names like Spiders, Troubled Horse, or label companion Grande Royale might come to the listener’s mind. Given the fact these bands all being very much appreciated by me personally, these references can only mean this album being quite yummy. ‘Beyond The Pale’ is simply a well performed and very attractive album which shows a band growing better by the album.
