RATING:


Background
It's been a decade since English band Change Of Heart were on the map. Their 'Truth Or Dare' CD was reviewed here at GDM during 2005, but the main personnel branched away. The main bloke behind COH has always been lead singer and principle songwriter Alan Clark, and in 2016 he returns with a new line-up. Assisted by Lawless guitarist Paul Hume, who handles the mixing and production tasks, 'Last Tiger' is the end result. If you like a hybrid of Ten and Saracen, then you should enjoy this.


The Songs
'Rise To The Challenge' is a powerful introduction. Glorious thick layers of synth and some incisive guitar work welcome COH back to the fold. 'Wayward Son' reminds me on 80's era Lion with Alan Clark providing a vocal that Kal Swann would recognise. Two tracks in, and things are sounding great. 'Roads Of My Life' enters power ballad territory, and though many good bands tend to kill off their reputations by attempting such deeds, COH have no problem here, delivering a pearler. The other power ballad of note is 'Stone Cold', which is also pretty good. 'March Of The Souls' is COH's Dio moment, and it works a treat. If it was supposed to a tribute to RJD, then they score a 10 out of 10. 'Holy Days' and 'Only Tomorrow' showcase COH's streamlined brand of melodic rock, where smooth rhythm guitars dominate. There was only track I didn't really like, and that was the piano ballad 'Hold On To Love', it's just far too tear-jerky, too much of a contrast with the rest of the album.


In Summary
Overall, 'Last Tiger' has more upside than down. You probably have to give it a few listens to get right into it. Not bad for a band who've been absent for more than ten years.
