Robin Beck
Livin' on a Dream
Style: Melodic Rock
Release date: July 6th 2007

Robin Beck is no spring chicken, after all her debut album 'Sweet Talk' was released back in 1979. Some might know her from her 1988 hit-single "First Time", a Coca Cola theme tune that went #1 in the UK. She followed up on the success with what many still consider to be one of the best female A.O.R. albums ever; 'Trouble or Nothin'' where she was working together with such notable artists as Desmond Child, Paul Stanley (Kiss) and Steve Lukather (Toto).

More albums featuring the cream of the rock musicians followed, and now she returns with her long overdue solo album #7. The album features 13 very catchy and melodic songs, written by herself, Jeff Kent, Tommy Denander, Chris Pelcer and James Christian. James Christian (House of Lords) and Tommy Denander have produced the album, Tommy Denander handles the guitars on the album and James sings a duet with Robin.

Tommy Denander proves once more than he belongs to the cream of melodic rock today and his guitar play on the album is great, star of the show is however Robin Beck with her raw and powerful voice - she shows just why she has been so successful and influential on the female rock scene.

A cool album if you need a breather or an injection of melodic rock, and songs like "Always", "Till the Last Teardrop Falls" (duet with James Christian) and "Love Lies" have a clear hit potential. Should thrill fans of Robin Beck, Alannah Myles and other female rock artists.
Not half bad...
