If you remember from our 2013 articles, we did a brief piece on New York quartet Station. A band in the White Lion, Tyketto, Trixter and Firehouse mould. In that article, we mentioned that the band would get around to releasing a full-length album, and they duly delivered in 2015. We're a bit late in getting around to writing about it, but better late than never. Having secured top-notch producer Mihael Wagener to help out on the debut EP, the band have since gone onto bigger things. Released on Electric Cheetah Records, 'Station' is a full-bodied release, with 15 tracks, inluding two tracks from the EP. We won't go through all tracks, we'll look at a handful.

The Songs
The album starts out with 'I Don't Want to Know Your Name', caught between Ratt and White Lion, a very ccatchy numbr indeed. We spoke about their best known track so far 'Everything', which was featured on the debut EP. A terrific track, there's a video for it also on our 2013 review/article. 'Are You Sleeping Alone' is the type of tune that would've been highly touted on MTV back in the day, maybe too 'True Believer', with some lovely guitar melodies on the verses. This one was a survivor from that debut EP too. Station get excitable with the upbeat 'Bitter With The Better', an anthem with a bag of party tricks. The same could be said for 'No Way Out', and at this midway point, one can form the opinion that the faster rockier and ahnthemic tracks is what this band specialise in. Station throw in a couple of ballads toward the end, but by this stage I'm hitting the skip button. 15 tracks is really far too many in one stting. 10 would've done fine.

In Summary
Station are a hard working band, and play mostly along the Eastern Seaboard, and are a popular draw throughout. If you like your hard rock with a slightly pop tinge (their words not mine), then you need to check out this exceptionally good and fun-time band.

Really good, 80's retro melodic rock. At 15 tracks and over 70 minutes, it's way too long (quality wise it dips in the middle), so a trim of 4-5 songs would have improved it overall, along with a beefed up rhythm section as well, but there are some super tracks on here with 'True Believer' and that infectious guitar riff in the verse, getting my vote for album highlight. For a debut album, much to commend and I look forward to hearing future material by this band
