A few weeks ago Frontiers Records re-released Fair
Warning’s first two albums plus a concert DVD and now it’s
time for a brand new album from this German Melodic Rock band. We
are treated with 13 songs; one of them is a bonus track for the
European market called “Still I Believe” and this new release
is filled with a mix of AOR and Melodic Hard Rock.
I must admit that I usually find AOR too soft but
there is first class Hard Rock to be found here as well and even
the softer side of Fair Warning is a pleasant surprise.
Unpretentious Melodic Rock music is what the guys offer us here.
Very accessible and catchy, but never sappy.
It took me a few spins to get use to the softer
tracks but songs like “Once Bitten, Twice Shy” and “Rainbow
Eyes” and the bonus track “Still Believe” is AOR heaven. But my favourite tracks are
“Don’t Keep me Waiting”, “The Way”, “Tell me Lies”,
“In the Dark” and "Generation Jedi”. All first class
Melodic Hard Rock songs that very well could appeal to both AOR
and Hard Rock fans and even Metal fans.
in all a nice and solid piece of work from this German band - the
productions is alright and let’s see what they can come up with
in the future.
Warning has already announced their participation to some
Europe including the second edition of the United Forces of Rock
A full European tour is planned for late 2006 / early 2007.
