M.ill.ion - Electric (CD)

by Grigoris Chronis at 19 April 2005, 4:13 AM

A country that has served the genre of Melodic Rock/Hard Rock/Glam/Sleeze music from the beginning of the 80's, Sweden seems unlimited in offering high-class bands, whether these bands eventually grab their slice from the pie or not - you can't be Europe from one day to another. Yet, steadiness, hard work and low profile was, is and should be M.ill.ion's stand out feature. Along with their main weapon, music.
In 1995, invited to tour with British legends Magnum (Rock heroes Nazareth were also added to one of the gigs), the band had a great time - and a great experience, too - enough to just look for a record deal to put out the We, Ourselves & Us successor. Mausoleum records was the winner and I think that was a bad movement for M.ill.ion. Delays, cancellations and postponed tours left the band with a whatcha hell's goin' on? feeling. Electric was finally released through the Blue Stone label and all was set to ride the storm!
Electric features traditional heavy AOR, with impressive guitar work, great vocals - once again - from Hasse Johansson and top notch keyboards. Powerful melodic Rock cuts like Wrong Side, Get Down To Biz and Opinion Machine make sure you'll have a great time listening to an album that resembles to 90's works of bands like Talisman (mainly) or Pink Cream 69 (at times). The production is again judged as modern, with rhythms gettin' high at times. Some influences from the American state-of-the-art Hard Rock are additionally featured as a dressing to the main Scandinavian dish.
Ranked at a slightly lower level than the band's No. 1 debut, Electric shows - this time - M.ill.ion's proclivity to electricity in Rock. I like this aspect, life is simple and if you wanna explore heaviness in AOR music, here you are!
- Album Highlights: The band's flexibility.
