"Darkness Falls" review by Alexis L. Berman


The band, led by Paul Stead return to attack by means of their third studio outing 'Darkness Falls', and in my opinion the best one. Thirteen tracks, plus four bonus tracks adorn a fine album, and features the necessary punch right from the beginning. Honeyed and clean melodies everywhere, flooding the disc song after song. The first four songs "Down" (a modern hard rock anthem), "Best in Me' (the first AOR-tinged track), "Lay in on the Line" (incredible hard rock), and the emotional "No-One Knows" (the first of some more relaxed beautiful songs that the disc has).

Those of you who are fans of Dokken, Harem Scarem and Thunder etc, don't miss the chance to enjoy a first-class English band, who during their time have performed live with bands like Quireboys, Saxon, Mitch Malloy and Kee Marcello, amongst many others. "Top of the Class" is another outstanding song " it offers the most poppy track of the disc, with a killer Stead on vocals. "Forever" and "Everybody", with it"s atmospheric keyboards, differ from the rest, and offers an FM rock of the '80s. Without doubt one of the highest points of the Album.

"Darkness Falls" closes with a super mix, first up is "Music Man" (the darkest song of the LP), then "Little Miss Sunshine" (beautiful song, and incredible performance), and finally the fist in the air "Rock N 'Roll Away" (Hard Rock that speaks). Do not miss it!
