Daddy Warbucks - try this on Youtube and download it using Torch browser - it will strip the audio out - let it down the MP4 video and then it will download the audio as aac.

Background
Having just written an article on Daylight Robbery's 2011 debut 'Cross Your Heart.. Hope To Die', it was opportune timing to write up the bands latest 2014 effort 'Falling Back To Earth'. Graced with a new rhythm section, 'Falling Back To Earth' is much lighter than 'Cross Your Heart..' but in saying that, 'Falling..' aims at the heart of AOR, and not the melodic hard rock come metal sound of its predecessor. Personally, I was kinda fond of that heavier sound, but this lot are classy enough to transcend genres, and they do so easily on this new platter. Released back in late Sept 2014, Daylight Robbery are well and truly entrenched in the British AOR scene, and should be recognised as such among the fraternity. Yes, they are that good, and we will investigate their sophomore effort.


The Songs
We head straight past the 30 second intro of 'Enter The Arena', and dive head first into 'Scream Outloud'. It's not as heavy as the title might suggest. in fact, the production is quite light and airy, giving away any predeliction toward anything remotely heavy. So too the AOR oriented 'I'll Be Seeing You', or the dense melodrama of 'Samarah Never Sleeps'. Picking up the pace, 'Paradise Is Lost', which would've sounded better with a heavier production, instead the guitars sound very underwhelming, though the spoken word mid-section and solo sections give it some redemption. I bypassed 'Fallen Star' and headed straight to the heavier 'Redlights', though it's probably a tad smoother than I would've liked. So too 'Hungry Years' which had too much teflon on it for heavier material to stick. I liked the moodier tones of 'Between The Lines', the deep atmospherics giving this one a lot of depth. Nice. 'Running Out Of Time' exits the album with another approved slice of AOR, but by now, I'm really missing the attitude and brute force rock of their debut. Oh well..


In Summary
There's no doubt that DR have something to offer, but this is far too slick and smooth that even I (biggest AOR-jar head on the planet), couldn't quite get into. I much preferred the heavier climes of 'Cross Your Heart..' and I hope the band do rediscover that 2011 sound, because by doing so, they at least have some identity. Going too far into AOR could see them getting lost in a sea of pretenders.
