Review

Back in the 80s Keel made their way to big success with their albums The Right To Rock (1985)and The Final Frontier (1986) to name two of their albums. Now almost 23 years after their last album Ron Keel and Marc Ferrari strikes back with a brand new album. Soundwise there has not happened so much from the glory days, no Keel carries on with their trademarks they had on their previous albums. This is melodic 80s US metal/hardrock but the songs don’t lift and it never gets exciting, I miss some big sounding rockers with catchy hooklines and memorable choruses. There’s couple of nice rockers like the opening title track that rocks nice with a ok chorus. On the other hand songs like Come Hell Or High Water and The Devil May Care (But I Don’t) is just two boring straight ahead guitar rockers. No More Lonely Nights is much better, a good rocker with a strong chorus a´la Firehouse. Lookin´ For A Good Time has nice riffs and a great pre-chorus, a great live song for sure. Ron Keel sings surprisingly good and I have to say that he sounds hungry. The album has been produced by Pat Regan (Kiss, Warrant, ) with solid result and features guest background vocals by Jaime St. James and Paul Shortino. An OK comeback album that misses the real killer tracks but there’s couple of nice rockers.
