Background
Alistair Gordon is back with a new Radio Silence album, with contributions from some of the heavyweight musicians on the Escape roster. It's a difficult album to review after only one or two listens, so I've given it about six listens to really look hard for redeeming features. Unfortunately there weren't very many .


The Songs
'Sirens Song' begins the album in fairly uptempo fashion, but there's nothing more disappointing than a good verse and bridge followed by a disappointingly bland and weak chorus - sadly that's the case here. 'Poison Ivy' struts along pleasantly enough at mid-tempo, the verse being a virtual duplication of the classic Danny Wilson hit 'Mary's Prayer'. 'Pressing Flesh' is the strongest track yet, stuttering along on a bed of oriental flavoured keys until a strong Glass Tiger-ish chorus takes control, much better. 'Backdoor To Heaven' continues the mid-tempo lightweight theme, but sadly it's quite bland apart from the odd decent chord change. 'This Is The Time' attempts to inject some much needed anthemic urgency into precedings, but only half succeeds - you can't help feeling it could've been better. 'Shame' returns to the lightweight tendencies, coming across like a poor Richard Marx throwaway. The rest is much of the same, solid enough lightweight AOR, but hardly essential except for the classy ballads 'Answer My Prayer' and 'Carry The Flame'.


In Summary
Despite my criticisms, this is hardly a bad album, and with more emphasis on anthemic urgency and genuinely strong hooks, the next Radio Silence effort could well be a classic.
