Top notch musicianship, great production values and an overall feeling of a band trying their best to put out a quality product.

For some reason Axel Rudi Pell seems to be the "Marmite" of the musical world. You either love or hate his music and I've never met anyone who falls in between these two extremes.

His albums have also become probably the easiest records to review because they all share a lot of the same musical characteristics; these include top notch musicianship, great production values and an overall feeling of a band trying their best to put out a quality product.

For this release, the band itself is, of course, on top form with the likes of Ferdy Doernberg, Volker Krawczak and Bobby Rondinelli all putting in great performances, with Pell his usual flamboyant self and Johnny Gioeli sounding better than he has in many a year. So let's face facts (because I fall into the love side) bad albums are not something you get from ARP.

'Game Of Sins' therefore should be a no brainer for fans of this act as we find ARP doing what he and his cohorts do so well, which is playing very strong Melodic Metal, full of large chunks of melody and big memorable sing-along hooks. As formerly mentioned, if you're a fan, no matter what I say... you have no doubt already got this on order.

For those a little undecided, try playing 'Sons In The Night', the brooding title track, the rifftastic 'The King Of Fools', 'Forever Free' or the huge sprawling ballad 'Till The World Says Goodbye' at full volume and then see if you're still not sure about 'Game Of Sins' or ARP's music.

With acts such Axel Rudi Pell, it really doesn't matter a tinker's cuss what I or any other writer says or thinks about him or his music. His worldwide fan base is fanatically loyal and they lap up with glee everything he releases and (personally) I think he makes great records. So again this is another that is up to individuals and their taste as to whether he or she buys this new offering.
