Da Vinci
Da Vinci - Remastered
February 2007
Released: 2006, MTM Music/Zink Music
Rating: 2.5/5
Reviewer: Anders Sandvall

Da Vinci’s album was unavailable for a long time, but MTM Music has now re-mastered and re-released BACK IN BUSINESS. This Norwegian act plays pretty generic keyboard-based melodic hard rock. They sound a little like early Europe or Treat.

There’s one bonus song added to the re-mastered version called “Blame It On The Radio”. Even though the material is quite good, it doesn’t last through the entire album; a few of the tracks feel like leftovers that should have been left in the rehearsal room. There are also too many ballads and up-tempo tracks.

The best songs are “Touchdown”, “9 and 10”, “Millions Like Us”, “Pink Champagne”, and “Hold Back The Tears”, which are all upbeat with extremely catchy refrains and choruses.

This album ought to appeal mostly to the older fans; today there are many better acts around who have stolen most of the potential fans of the band. I find BACK IN BUSINESS a little too melodic for my tastes, but MTM Music should be given credit for making this album available again.
