After 3 years we are finally getting a new Masterplan album.
The first sample is this little 3 track EP which contains all non album tracks,
all be it that 2 songs are the same. It is with great delight that Jorn Lande
has joined back up with the boys. I mean the last album "MKII" was
ok, but it's like Maiden without Bruce. It just didn't sound right!!!!!
Getting over the excitement of Jorn being back in
"Masterplan" I sit down to listen to this EP & listen again &
again, because I don't hear anything outstanding here. To my ears Masterplan is a well oiled machine churning out the same stuff they did 5
years ago. Don't get me wrong the 2 new tracks on offer are good melodic power
metal with great solos and powerful vocals. But I honestly HOPE that the album
is a lot better then this EP.
Nothing to get excited about here...
