HAREM SCAREM - Change The World
SCORE - 100%
In my reviews-absence there has been some superb releases, one of which is the mighty Harem Scarem and their 15th studio release (WTF!) Change The World.
Once again, I was honoured to work with the guys sequencing the album and think it has a pretty tasty flow. As I’ve been with the band since the very week of their debut album, its not hard to appreciate my love for these guys and how they are quite possibly, the most consistent band of the last 30 years.
This album is no exception. It’s a flip of the coin as to whether I prefer this to the “perfect” predecessor, the acclaimed ‘United’ release. I think I will have to make this another perfect album as there are no obvious flaws – it sounds a million bucks, is drenched in harmonies and mighty choruses and the three-play of Aftershock, Searching For Meaning and The Death Of Me is about as good as it gets anywhere, from anyone.
This is what melodic rock is all about.
