Dare - Calm Before The Storm 2

Calm Before The Storm 2

Honey for my scorched ears… Relaxed Soft AOR of the best breed.

DAREwas always be a totally weird music experience for me. I fell in love with their music. Back in the day when they played as support of the mighty EUROPE. It was back in 1988. Their album “Out Of The Silence” was like a guilty pleasure for this young and wild Metalhead.

Providing some smooth, delicate, softer sound and way different than my regular worshiped Power Metal heroes. I was like under a spell, captivated by this aired but still thick and intense music. Chained to that deep and whispering voice, absorbed by this overwhelming ambiance but in the same time overrun by a sheer freedom sensation. This time again I couldn’t resist and this “Calm Before The Storm 2” is another jinx for me. Completely re-recorded new version of the 1998 released third album from Darren Wharton & Co that also includes two previously new tracks: “Precious” and “Cold Wind Will Blow” that are melted perfectly with the rest of the tracklist.

I heard a lot of complaints about the fact that is not a real new album, indeed but let’s face the truth, the original isn’t available anymore and this version is both sonically and artistically superior to the original, so why deprive the world of such a jewel. If you still don’t know about Wharton's music, his magical singing or this album, do yourself a favour  and relax and try this flawless melodic Rock album.
