JOHN LANGE is a solo artist from the United States Of America that have recently released his newest album “Frozen Fire” and it has a lot of nice different elements. Let’s talk about that.

The opening song from the album is the title-track “Frozen Fire” and I must say that I am impressed by John’s vocals, it has such a nice tone and the instrumental parts are really good as well. It was a nice start. “Down the Road” starts with a nice drum sound followed by a cool guitar riff and some good bass lines. This song is a little bit cheerful than the first song and we can hear different elements here as well. Yeah pretty great stuff.

Train of Souls” starts with a nice guitar sound that has a cool effect on it and there are also some acoustic guitars that helped shaping the ambiance. It feels like a 70’s or 60’s song and I totally enjoyed the vibe. The only thing that feels different here is the mixing, but it still good to listen to. “Only a Whisper” has a better sound again and I liked the darker guitar riffs mixed up with the bass lines, but soon it turns into something a little bit happier with the acoustic guitars. The vocals are really good and it’s a fun song.

Only God Can Stop the Rain” starts with a nice guitar riff and it feels like a ballad to dance under the moonlight. There is a bluesy guitar sound and even a few shredding here and there. It sounds country and I liked it. “The Movie Screen” is definitely a song that would totally fit a movie soundtrack back in the 80’s and it’s a really cool song. There are plenty of different elements that helped shaping the ambiance and I believe that its one of the most different songs on the whole album.

Wanting It All” have a nice vibe and reminded me of some Indie Rock ballads as well, which I think it is something pretty cool. There’s a good vibe on it… just listen to. “Vapor” starts out with a acoustic guitar and voice, nothing more, but it grows into something with percussion and its definitely a nice ballad.

I Do Believe” is one of the different stuffs from that album as well, it starts out with a clean guitar sound and the vocals seems to have a feel different effects but they sound pretty good. I really liked how the vocals sounds kind of sad and deep. It perfectly fits the instrumental.

Maybe Someday” is the last song from the album and it starts with a more cheerful guitar riffs and it reminded me of the 70’s Rock N’ Roll styles, but it all mixed with the deep vocals. It is definitely a cool song.

JOHN LANGE have written and released a great Rock album with a lot of different elements and I must say that I am impressed by how cool his vocal tone is. All the instruments were well played as well. I recommend it.
