Background
Sweden's Gypsy Rose on paper, looks as if they have a lot going for them. A great lineup of players, and a debut album from 2005 behind them. Their label Escape Music has stuck by them since that first album, plus they have an association with the likes of Martin Kronlund, Rikard Quist and Imre Daun who formed part of the White Wolf reformation last year. Gone is former singer Hakan Gustafsson, who has taken his Scorpions flavored vocals, to be replaced by American singer David Reece, who is well known to fans of Accept, Bangalore Choir and Sircle Of Silence. proving that geography is longer a challenge in the 21st century, the band have delivered their second effort for Escape called 'Another World'. So, do they transport us to another world in a musical sense?


The Songs
Not quite - unless that world is centered around a timeframe that smells of European hair-metal from the late 80's and early 90's. For all of these guys, that world is a pretty familiar one, and if Germanic metal a la Sinner, Victory, Domain and Bonfire is your flavor of teutonic Muchen tasting lager, then you'll be right at home here. Though four of these guys come from Sweden, the scandi fragrance is not in the air. Musically, 'Another World's slams hard, and overall is a pretty genre pleasing album - if you drop the fluffy rags for studs and leather. From the density laden 'Nothing Really Matters' and 'Fired' to the brief cowpoke excursion 'When I Call Your Name', the band know how to change things up when required. I quite liked the dark and deep 'A Little Ain't Enough', plus the duo of 'Liar' and 'Hellhammer' are tailor made for the hair-metal vocals of Reece - in much the same way that Fernando Garcia wrapped his larynx around some of those Victory songs.


In Summary
Overall, an OK album, a bit samey in places, but great to hear David Reece back in the saddle. He really is a great vocalist so long as he has the right material to work with. Gypsy Rose do have some good ideas and a solid plan of attack, but much of the material could have benefited from a variation in dynamics, tone, tempo and delivery. I haven't heard the debut so can't comment about comparing the two, though I hope one of the other GDAZE writers will come to the party.. (?)

Very easy to catch because of the good songs and prod. by MrM.KRONLUNDexDOGFACE-WHITE WOLF-
Obviously the additon of David REECE exDARE FORCE-BANGALORE CHOIR-ACCEPT-SOS- Was a smart choice boosting their 2nd CD with UNoriginal but timeless HARD ROCK
