Last Autumn's Dream: Yes

AOR/Melodic Rock
4.0/5.0

Writing commentary for latest Last Autumn's Dream album, Yes, is like being Elizabeth Taylor's latest husband on their wedding night: most everything has been said and done. With Yes, their eighth album, the masters of European AOR melodic rock are in fine and impressive form.

All the LAD elements are here: strong melodic arrangements with lots of hooks and catchy choruses enlightened by sound rhythm section, zippy guitar solos, and Mikael Erlandsson's lightly raspy vocals. Songs of love wanted, found, and lost remain LAD's lyrical formula. They'll rock with an infectious groove as on I've Fallen Into You or In This Thing Too Deep. Ballads, both vibrant and subtle, come on Another Night, To Be With You, or Alive. Sometimes the offerings are minimal, acceptable, but not necessarily noteworthy like Fool's Game (a Michael Bolton cover) and If I Could Change the World. Then, conversely, Survivor and Sound of a Heartbreak remind you how truly talent Last Autumn's Dream really is.

Simply, Last Autumn's Dream's Yes is pure Last Autumn's Dream: accessible, energetic, and highly entertaining AOR melodic rock. Purchasing this is a 'no brainer' if you're a fan of band or the genre.
