Burn - Global Warning (CD)

Global Warning
by Yiannis Dafopoulos at 22 August 2008, 11:49 AM

This is one of the times I wonder why our kind publishing editor gave the specific album to me for a review. He usually gives me only extreme stuff, something you have probably understood until now, or Ferret's crap. This time an album that belongs to his field ended up in my hands. Not that I really care. It is always nice to have a break and listen to some more melodic stuff.

The UK based rockers have released their third full-length album and I admit that we have some quality melodic Hard Rock here. Even though I tried to search for some info about Formula One Records I found no site neither a Myspace page, so I suppose it is a label formed by the band to release its own stuff.

So what would you say about some catchy music with sing along choruses, great riffing and a kick ass singer? Oh, I almost forgot to add the 'environment friendly' lyrics the band has written. Something that is obvious from the album's title. I guess that if you are looking for some modern melodic Hard Rock that brings back memories of DOKKEN, FOREIGNER, HAREM SCAREM as well as some newer stuff like GOTTHARD, then BURN is the best choice for you.

The songs are really catchy and there will be many times that a riff or some lyrics will be stuck in your mind for some days. Thumbs up for Julian's great work on the solos, that make the tracks sound even more kick ass. The only bad thing I can say is that the band should work a bit more on the drums, since the PC sound is really obvious. I think that this kind of music should be played with physical instruments so the energy would be carved on every note.

Nothing more to be said. BURN are not here to change the history of music as we know it, but they can surely change your day making it more rock and more roll! Don't have second thoughts. Just go get the album now and you won't regret it!
