FIREBUG - "NO RETURN" 2022

"NO RETURN"

2022 


NO RETURN - The title track opens this album with a storming introduction.  With elements of Progressive and Classic Rock interspersed with a variety of vocals from lead singer Juliette Tworsey, this is a mega anthemic rocker.

 

TRAIL THAT NEVER ENDS (CELESTIAL TRAVELER) - A haunting vocal fronts a typical 70s Progressive Rock style with an Eastern flavour.  At the 3 and a half minute mark the song ends with a crescendo of crashing Classic Rock drums and guitars remind me a little of Rush.  Another gem.

MOMENT OF JOY - Unusually kicking off with a slight Jazz feel the track soon moves into cool Blues and Rock 'n Roll territory.  It ends with a little 60s Psychedelia! 

CHANGE - This is an arena sized ballad, Firebug style.  Powerful vocals again from Juliette over a Classic 80s Rock vibe, reminscent of Heart.  A favourite of mine.

ONLY THE LUCKY - A minimal Acoustic track with a style that is similar to The Animals' "House of the Rising Sun".  Its an emotionally sung, really lovely ballad.

DOWN - Another genre is squeezed out of the Firebug repertoire proving they are no one trick ponies.  A brilliant straight up Blues slow rocker.  

ST. ELMO'S FIRE- Mostly instrumental, this song finishes a really good album.  This is yet another genre attempted and it succeeds.  A kind of Dream Pop this time.
