Out To Every Nation
December 2004
Released: n/a, AFM
Rating: 3.5/5
Reviewer: JP

Year-end wrap-up: Each of the last few years to wrap up the year I have picked a theme for my reviews for December. This year due to the overwhelming number of CD’s that deserve exposure, recognition and commentary I am going to resort to quantity over quality. I usually try to give as much attention to each CD with extensive commentary however this month’s reviews (perhaps unfortunately) will be short and sweet and much more in the style of traditional magazine reviews where space restrictions are an important factor. (ie. Less detail) I apologize in advance to readers who expect much more detailed reviews. Please check the reviews archives as many of my colleagues have written excellent detailed commentary of many of these CD’s. I hope the large number of quick comments will help guide you making some of those important year-end CD purchase decisions. Happy Holidays and see you in January. JP

It’s easy to see why Mr. Lande was scooped up by Yngwie, later Masterplan and why Ark is respected despite being a lesser known entity. His voice is a shinning light that recalls days when a performer could survive on his skill as a singer alone. He is in league with such guys like Glenn Hughes, Joe Lynn Turner and so on, guys who have real talent. His third solo work is a masterwork and he is backed by some of the best, guys from Hammerfall and Pagan’s Mind. He has range and power, grit and crunch when needed but can also be smooth should the need arise. His album is easily heaviness enough to be classified as ‘metal’ but has many classic, melodic hard rock sensibilities that come through in the lyrics and some of the arrangements. If you are not familiar with his work I strongly encourage you to get this disc as a fine introduction to his stellar talent in singing and songwriting.
