The new Overland is another record that delivers almost everything expected of it – smooth, soulful AOR with the masterful Steve Overland bringing his godly dulcet tones to us undeserving mere mortals. It’s also pretty rockin in places – straight ahead hard rock to a more bluesier vibe. Rather than taking a cheaper, easier route, A rhythm section comprised of the evergreen Brian Tichy on drums and bass from Brian Anthony (Steve Walsh). You also get a super slick production and mix. Quality guitar work comes from Tommy Denander, but you do have to accept his processed and overly familiar sound comes along with that.
Can you believe this is actually Steve’s 5th Overland outing?! Time flies. Maybe not as catchy as previous albums, but still very good.
Not a lot to complain about here. Steve Overland demands purchasing, that’s about as simple of it gets.
