Background
A few years ago, 91 Suite were proclaimed the next big thing in European melodic rock. For sure, their 2002 debut album was a stunner for many, and though released on the relatively small (and now defunct) label Vinny Records, the band and the album garnered a strong following. Even for us here at GLORY-DAZE, the album impressed us deeply. Then the band completely disappeared off the face of the earth - for a few years at least.. lol! So, three years down the track, the band return with a new album, a new label, and a new attitude. There is a modern edge to their sound, in much the same way that bands such as Harem Scarem and TNT have embraced the future albeit with a tippy-toe still retained in the past. The guy who is the focal point for 91 Suite is singer Jesus Espin. His interesting voice casting a conparison to a young Tommy La Verdi (of A440 and 21 Guns fame). Not to put anything past the other musicians onboard here. In fact the guitars (as they did last time around) work in tandem very nicely. Overall, if we think debut album era Harem Scarem, a reminder of Novak but with a little less 'punch' in the drums, then this is what this album sounds like.

The Songs
As there are fourteen songs in total, we won't go over all of them. We'll pick on the ones that stand out. 'I Wanna Be In Love' is a gorgeous melodic track, combining great vocal harmonies, Pete Lesperance approved guitar licks, and subtle moments of delicious AOR. 'Hopes And Dreams' is the sort of AOR that Novak dabbled in earlier this year. Great stuff. 'Another Reason' is the band's modern rock hit-out - however, melody is still very much prevalent. A very cool track nonetheless. The big ballad 'Stand Beside You' will surely have you reaching for your cigarette lighter in true audience participation mode. But really, the other tracks deserve your ear too, and in time I'm sure you will come to grow into this album just as I am.

In Summary
Good value for money? I think so. Fourteen tracks and you'll be hovering over the set-list like a bee deciding which lavender plant to graze at! My only dig - the drums are too far back in the mix for my liking. However, this album is gonna get a heap of listening before Christmas, and I look forward to putting some quality time in under a set of headphones.

I actually prefer this one to the debut album, as it has a slightly tougher sound and has much better songs generally. My choice picks would be the early Harem Scarem sounding 'I Wanna Be In Love', the terrific 'Tell Me Why' & 'Far Away' (which both remind me vocally of the great Chris Ousey) and the excellent 'Will You Ever' & 'Remember The Good Times'. The rest is all of very very good quality, which is why this album stands out for me, consistency and no filler.

Chris Ousey? No way Jez! I think we have more or less, the same taste....but this vocalist is not even the 1/5 of Chris....Very good overall album but the debut is awesome
