In 1984 I bought
the album Shaft of Light and fell in love with this band from the start, but
they didn't survived any longer than to 1985 when Airrace was put on hold until
2009 and the
re-issue of ‘Shaft of Light’ was released and the band reunited.
These guys tension the string and they doesn't only hits
the target; they almost put it in the bulls eye.
This makes me wonder what they have been doing all these
years. This is a comeback I have to celebrate high and loudly. It seems that
many of the "80s" band are doing reunion this summer and nobody is happier than
me about this and Airrace is worth a second chance to make it and became more
than the band that did one great record and nothing more. Keith Murrell on
vocals was voted recently at #20 in Classic Rock Presents AOR magazine’s list of
the Top 40 AOR Vocalists of All Time. Fans of British AOR and bands like
Foreigner will find much pleasure in this album. The only negative part on this
disc is that 2 or 3 tracks can't hold the same quality as the rest.
I'm glad that they are back and I hope that we don’t have
to wait 25 years to next record.
