Who remembers this Aussie outfit from 1995? I'm sure a few of you do. Safire released a pretty decent 6 track CD/EP back then, but like anything that was potentially worthwhile from that time and ripe for growth, it was immediately snuffed out by the grunge scene. Lead singer Jason Old I've known about since his days with Melbourne pop rockers 40 Alexander and Square One, and he returns to the fray with this brand new offering under the Safire banner. The five piece are intact, and sound better than bloody ever! Of course, if any of you had been paying attention to Safire's activities since before Christmas 2012, you'll all have known about this forthcoming release in any case.

The Songs
Things get off to great start with the impassioned 'Say You Love Me', probably the obvious choice as an album opener, but this is one of many excellent songs distributed throughout the album. 'I'll Be There' is a groovy and punchy little rocker punctuated with synth stabs, piano and orchestration. The title track 'All Because Of You' has all the makings of a power ballad extraordinare, the song drips emotion much like the rain effects heard within the song. It's all galloping guitars from Steve Martet as 'Crying' takes you under. This isn't as dire and melodramatic as the songtitle would suggest thank goodness. It rocks out ok. 'In Your Arms' is the album's slow-burner, 'Why' is the beautiful acoustic moment that really is an unplugged wonder. You can imagine Jason Old belting this one at a private party among close friends. The idea behind the radio tuning dial for '1995' was probably borrowed from White Widdow's 'Reckless Nights' track, but hey, a good idea needs to be regurgitated right? Particularly when it segues into the album's best moment for mine: the glorious melodic rocker 'Memories Live Again'. A rather tasty track indeed! I really liked the bombastic 'I'd Just Like To Say'. It has a few redeeming features, especially the singalong chorus and some booming drum work from Bill Georgio. 'Could've Been Beautiul' is another power ballad where the chorus reminds of something familiar, but I just can't pick it. 'Only Forever' picks up where 'Memories Live Again' left off, and surges ahead on a wave of melodic waves. Not to be outdone, 'Making Me Feel' also has some (excuse the pun) feel-good moments too.

In Summary
Much like their first CD, Safire have made this a self-released disc, available via their online Ebay site. An unusual way to sell/distribute it for sure, but if it works for them, then who are we to criticise their distribution channel. 'All Because Of You' is too good a release to be ignored. Grab a copy while stock lasts!
