Next review: » The Apocalyptic Riders - Samurai
Released: 2013, Napalm Records
Reviewer: Celtic Bob
This release caught my eye due to it’s beautiful artwork which was done by the late Storm Thorgerson. I then read the press release that accompanied it and it sounded interesting so I began to listen to the music. The music that flowed from the speakers fitted the cover as it was real and alive.
The music is modern 70’s hard rock with a real groove. It’s closer to Hard Rock rather than Metal but there are some Metal elements to it. Regardless of labels the music is what counts and this ranks up there as one of the greatest. This is an album that literally has something for everyone. It’s just a fantastic album from start to finish.
Everything about this album is great, from the heavy drums to the guitar riffs and solos to Neeson’s deadly vocals. NEW HORIZON is one catchy album. At times it reminds me of the first Laidlaw album but yet it’s fresh and new. Maybe it’s just the heavy Hard Rock groove? Either way The Answer have made an album of solid music that will satisfy any music fan.
After countless spins I am not the least bit tired of this record, the opposite actually. The more you spin it, the more you’ll like it and really get into it. NEW HORIZON is a new Classic Hard Rock Album and one of 2013’s best. Buy it, Crank it and Enjoy it!
