It is kinda strange why I write about this album here at the melodic net, and perhaps even stranger that I like it. Or perhaps not. I have a wide taste of music and Ace (who have the leading roll in the Grease-musical in NY) is not the typical Melodic Net artist if we should put it like that. What we have here is a modern produced pop-artist with on one hand a sort of sound that Michael Jackson had back in the “Bad”-era (just listen to second out “The Letter” and you’ll understand) but there are also another side of the cake and that is the more straighter melodic poprock-side “Hard Hand To Hold” which is bloody marvelous huge-sounding bombastic poprock. Fourth out “You Redeem Me” starts out with a lonely piano and his solid voice and develops into a fantastic modern rock goes AOR-sort of refrain, and then I haven’t mentioned eight out “How You Gonna Spend Your Life” which also is a bombastic modernrock poptune with lovely harmonies. Huge. The album has so many sides… And the thing is… I like all of them cuz it is so well done. The production is so professional, the programming and arrangements on the “Michael Jackson-esque” tracks are so well done. It’s sort of schizophrenic and yes – you have to be a very open minded man like myself to enjoy the whole album. If you only like bombastic aor/modernrock smelling rock you will probably more or less think that the man is insane on the groovier tunes and if you are a dancing-man with the groove in your pants – you will not understand a single second of the standard rockers. Weird I know – but that’s the fact. This is the perfect iTunes-album where you can decide what tunes you should buy. For me – the whole album is a cool journey. And yes – I’m weird.
