Review by Kimmo Toivonen
Angeline's latest release, this 4-track EP is a versatile one. The band kick it off with the title song, which is a rather catchy, straight-forward melodic rock song. It reminds me a little bit of latter day Harem Scarem, with its' fine harmonies. "Can You Feel It Now?" is a modern rock track with the ever-so-popular Coldplay-influenced drum pattern during the chorus. I don't understand everyone's fascination with it, it's like trying to drive with the handbrake on... The song could've been great with a more rollicking chorus, now it's the weakest part.
From modern rock the band moves smoothly to 70'ies retro-rock á la The Rival Sons and the likes with "Into The Fire". It's good for what it is, but I'm not too much into the style. The last song is a ballad "Days Go By", and the band has a go at another style again - the song has a bit of a country vibe, maybe along the lines of Bon Jovi's "Lost Highway" album. It's nice and organic sounding, but not really the kind of song that leaves a trace...
The EP was briefly given away as a free download, now you can find it from Spotify and Itunes. A bit of an experiment I'd say, hopefully the band sounds more focused on their next album and doesn't try to jump into the retro-rock bandwagon. Or go country.
