Tested melody hard rock…
Approximate translation of the review
We have here the third album of SUNSTORM after Sunstorm (2006) and House Of Dreams (2009) and always on the same label, Frontiers Records. Let's recall the C.V. impressive one of his leader Joe Lynn TURNER that sang notably in RAINBOW, on Odyssey of YNGWIE MALMSTEEN and in DEEP PURPLE on Slaves & Masters. Add thereto three albums with Glenn HUGUES (HTP), about ten album solo as well as the groups MOTHER’S ARMY and BRAZEN ABBOT. Brief, not a beginner and in permanent activity. His song, less in studio, always is of a big quality and remains major trump of this Emotional Fire.

Musically, SUNSTORM does us to travel in the years 80 while using all the necessary recipes to the success of a Hard FM of big class. Never Give Up, in opening, hits immediately the spirits by his energetic aspect and its cared ones for guitars. The following title, Emotional Fire, wants itself more put and allows appreciating the stuffed depth of this voice of emotion. Then comes the traditional ballad Lay Down Your Arms on piano bottom, that arrives a little too early in the listens to my taste, which has for effect to break the rhythm. Concerning the sound of this disc, the signed production Denis WARD does not suffer from any defect. The generally discreet keyboards bring the key mélodique to the pieces Hard Rock (Wish You Were Here) or Classic Rock (Gina), construct on a section guitar low very solid as on the succeeded You Wouldn’t Know Love characterized one by of sumptuous choirs. In summary, a completely mastered style!

In the critics, I note a small lack of originality at the level of the compositions. When I note that the better pieces are coming from the catalog discographique of Michael BOLTON and of CHER, a light feeling of disappointment on the writing work invades me…

Despite all, without literally to break the shack, Emotional Fire surpasses a big majority of the gone out current of Hard Rock mélodique. This new one SUNSTORM will seduce the collectors and amateurs of the kind but will have more difficulties to obtain a younger public.

Yo Noctus, pour ma part, je trouve sympathique d'avoir ressorti "Gina" du placard dans lequel elle était enfermée depuis 1987 et l'album de Michael BOLTON : The Hunger... Pareil pour Emotionnal Fire, vestige du passé toujours aussi agréable à écouter. Les autres compositions sont excellentes, très mélodiques des frères MARTIN, Soren Kronkvist, Daniel Palmqvist... Un bel album de Hard-Rock mélodique à la sauce FM comme nous en propose Frontiers Records régulièrement, fort bien chanté, interprété, mixé et produit par un Joe qui avance en âge mais garde la foi et sa voix en studio !!! J'aurai mis 18/20... Belle chro ! Tchuss !
