Another excellent combo offering or another meeting of two disparate talents who do not mesh?

"Here comes another one, here comes a bunch of 'em..." – Monty Python. There are many different views regarding the Frontiers way of bringing different people to play together, often on other people's songs; some regard it as soulless, some point to the absolute success of disparate talents coming together, while some believe it's an interesting label idea if it isn't overdone.

We do seem to have a lot of these projects popping up and so some are going to be more successful than others. This cuddling up of Alessandro Conti from Trick Or Treat and Fabio Lione, originally with Rhapsody, singing Simone Mularoni's songs is patterned after the success of the Allen/Lande albums, and this partnership does what that one does very well, albeit with a little more of a prickly rush.

This offering really is well done, well played, well sung and well mixed in that harder-edged Euro Melodic Rock way, and this is both its excellence and challenge. For those who like that sound, this is going to be amazing, but for those who are getting bored with it, this may sound like so much processed meat.

There are some truly exciting moments to be found here, the double kicks racing the guitar on 'Outcome', while 'Somebody Else' believes there's no point in having a ballad unless you're going to have one you can see from space. The closing track 'Crosswinds' is as dramatic as the drums at the end of 'EastEnders', the clear toned solo taking you home and the moments which are over-sung play right into the hands of this music. However, there's a little too much of 'Truth' where everything is expected, from the heaving riff and twinkling synths to the dropped-out verse and the catchy chorus.

That's it then, depending on your view, another excellent combo offering or another meeting of two disparate talents who do not mesh. To my ears, both can be found here. This isn't Allen/Lande, but occasionally it gets close, and Frontiers surely have to be given kudos for trying.
