"AS LONG AS YOU WANT THIS"
AS LONG AS YOU WANT THIS - A storming opener to the Dutch band's debut album, a classy Alternative Rock track showcasing Dinand Woesthoff's fabulous husky vocals.
CAN YOU HANDLE ME - Great Pop Rock track with awesome melodies and harmonies. Catchy chorus and a foot stomper.
DAMN THOSE EYES - Absolutely gorgeous mid tempo Pop Rock ballad. Big, anthemic and memorable. Simply stunning.
HANDS - Reminds me a little of INXS at their peak. Great mid tempo and another top singalong chorus, these guys know how to hook your ears.
WHERE DO I GO NOW - Half Acoustic, this track is almost Grunge Rock, with a little segment of Classic Rock guitars thrown in forgood measure.
I WILL KEEP MY HEAD DOWN - An atmospheric Progressive Rock/Classic Rock track. Some great Acoustic guitar interspersed with searing solos.
NOT HERE - A beautifully constructed Rock ballad, great melodies and Dinand's letting off some steam on his vocal range, almost whispered deep vocals to booming big anthemic parts.
WAITING WAITING - The intro of the chugging guitar strumming reminds me of The Cars and Blondie. Echoed vocals, experimental effects and various Rock genres incorporate funky elements like Red Hot Chili Peppers and almost Rock rap. Brilliant.
RESCUE ME - A really nice mid tempo anthemic and emotive Rock ballad, yet another class song from a sadly missed band by me.
UNTIL NOTHING ELSE MATTERS - A more harder Rock than other songs on this album, proving they can turn their hand at any style. A little Grunge. a little Classic Rock, a little Hard Rock.
JUST GO - A slight Country Blues tinged rocker. Big vocals from Dinand, and anthemic arena style Rock at its best.
MY HEART'S DESIRE - A lovely Acoustic 90s Rock style ballad. The focus is firmly on Dinand's extraordinary unique vocals.
TAURUS (HANGING ON) - A real stormer of a track to end a fabulous debut album. A heavy rocker similar to U2 who are one of their influences. That big production, big noise, big vocals. As anthemic Rock should be. Class act.

PRINCE AND THE REVOLUTION "PURPLE RAIN" 1984 LET'S GO CRAZY - It's memorable opening line, "Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today..." well you all know the rest! A powerhouse of a track, blistering guitar solos and a backdrop of spiritual spoken words about God and all things religious. Just a superb track which has many "air guitar" moments for the wannabe Rock stars, even though by their blinkered standards he was never thought of as a Rock guitarist...quite ridiculous in my opinion. TAKE ME WITH U - A sultry Pop ballad sung with Apollonia Kotero. Jill Jones, Wendy and Lisa sung on backing vocals to add "sexy fullness" to Apollonia's vocal. It was released as a double A side with "Let's Go Crazy" and was often played on the radio as an alternative. Allegedly it was going to appear on an Apollonia album. Romantic, sultry and sexy, all in the best possible Prince taste! THE
OLIVIA RODRIGO "SOUR" 2021 BRUTAL - Olivia Rodrigo's debut album opens with a scorching 90s Brit Pop Punk track, reminding me of Elastica and Sleeper in its female angst ridden vocals. It also has me thinking of Wendy James and Transvision Vamp in its brash style. The former Disney star shows she has left that way behind with great Indie Pop Rock album with a few expletives thrown in for good Punk measure! TRAITOR - A slowed down tempo for this track, a beautiful, soft and melancholy Indie Rock track similar to Avril Lavigne in style with maybe a little nod to Kate Bush or Tori Amos in the atmospheric vocals? Love this track. DRIVER'S LICENSE - Perrfect Pop break-up ballad, Taylor Swift, Sophie B.Hawkins and Michelle Branch spring to mind on listening to this. Beautiful heartfelt vocals over a sparse, orchestrated style moody backing. Really nice and accomplished composition from 18 yr old Olivia and her debut single. 1 STEP FORWARD, 3 STEPS BACK - Another
ABBA "THE ALBUM" 1977 EAGLE - The album opens with one of my alltime favourite Abba songs. Its mystical, space age, almost sci-fi musical backing and effects really got my mind engaged. This is just a superb composition, and in headphones this whisks you away into the sky, free as a bird. Almost 6 minutes of class. TAKE A CHANCE ON ME - One of the band's most successful singles, a great sing-a-long memorable chorus and chug-a-chug style backing. Europop Disco at its best. ONE MAN, ONE WOMAN - Piano and synthesised led track with string parts make this a lovely ballad with Frida (Anni-Frid Lyngstad) on the leading vocals. THE NAME OF THE GAME - Such a clever song, so many different sections in the song, even the vocals are jointly led by Frida and Agentha Faltskog with solo parts too. There is a lot going on and is very complex if you listen closely. Another hit single. MOVE ON - This is a Waltz song that starts
