Sweden's Baltimoore is the baby of vocalist Bjorn Lodin. 'Original Sin', Baltimoore's fifth album sees a re-uniting of Bjorn with original guitarist Thomas Larsson after the departure of guitarist Nikolo Kotzev and keyboardist Lars Pollack. This is a very interesting and eclectic album. When Baltimoore rock out there is a Rainbow/Brazen Abbot feel to the songs.

The Songs
'Conviction', a fast and furious rocker, could easily have featured on any Brazen Abbot album. 'Emancipation' has a great crunchy riff and catchy chorus. A heavy riff drives 'Retribution' akin to early Bad Company/Whitesnake. Another nasty riff is the basis for 'Omniscience' a song that really gets the feet stomping and fists pumping. Among these rockers are a few more diverse tracks that make this album quite a treat to listen to. 'Indecision' with it's 70's style funk/blues riff, 'Contradiction' opens with a stunning Thomas Larsson guitar solo that moves into a jazz/Celt/blues ballad/rocker. This song has got a little bit of everything. Different and impressive. 'Recognition' has a slow blues/jazz feel that reminds me of 'When A Blind Man Cries'. 'Superman' is the most diverse song on the album. Not a rock lick to be found on this pure Jazz/Lounge song. Even though it's not rock it's still a great song. 'Jealousy' is another slower, bluesy song. 'Redemption', an acoustic based ballad, can be compared to latter day Mr Big.

In Summary
It may take a few listens to fully appreciate what Bjorn has achieved with 'Original Sin'. This is partly due to Bjorn's unique, throaty vocals and also the myriad of styles on offer. For me this is a very enjoyable album that highlights the considerable talents of all concerned, especially the strong emotive vocals of Bjorn Lodin his sensational guitar work, as well as Thomas and Kurt. An excellent job by all.
