GTS - Tracks From The Dustshelf (Reissue)

Tracks From The Dustshelf (Reissue)
by Katarzyna Zakolska at 18 January 2013, 12:11 AM

GTS is AOR band from United Kingdom. Album "Tracks From The Dustshelf" is the debut album by this British group. It was originally released in 1995 and in 2012 was released re-issue this by Avenue Of Allies. The band consisted of three musicians from London - Greg Hart (guitarist in MORITZ, IF ONLY), vocalist Sam Blue and bassist Toby Sadler.

On this album there are a few great melodic Rock songs. I especially liked “Dream On” with a clear rhythmical section (drums & bass) and fine guitar melodies. Worth listening is the guitar solo. The chorus is catchy and raise you to the high heavens. Opening track “Endless” can show you the meaning of how memorable AOR attitude can be with another sweet chorus, so sticky and addictive. Nice singing and nice performed bass with drums would apply of a cheery mood. “Marrianne” begins with awesome melodies and this song is dictated by the rhythm of drums and bass. Keys in the background reminded me FOREIGNER classic. “You”, another cheerful mooder that will entice the fans of the genre. Harmonic vocals you can be found on “Hands Of Time”  that is a typical AOR classic of older times, clearly a positive oriented track. The sound of the drums is rather soother on “Baby Make Time”, a clear reminder of old TOTO songs. The same very nice climate of TOTO is in „The Other Side”. I also recommend “Love Like Fire” displayed with fantastic higher chorus and a wall of melodies.

“Tracks from the Dustshelf” is very good album harboring some of tracks from that will inspire great energies. As on every true AOR album, there are tender keys strokes, pretty well working rhythmical section and vocal choir in the background that I like very much. If you are a fan of AOR or bands such as FOREIGNER or TOTO,you should tune in to this GTS album. Their music is a journy back to old emotive Rock., a worth listener no doubt.
