Free Spirit 5 Years, 11 Months ago Karma: 9
The new Free Spirit album is some of THE best commercial melodic rock I've heard in AGES!! The track 'Hysteria' is just perfection for me!!

HYSTERIA always means perfection ...

Are there any samples we can listen to?

Don't understand Berny's interjection, but I have ordered

FREE SPIRIT
KJETIL BY
JOHNNY LIMA

new albums at way above the prices I am normally prepared to pay, because discussion of them here (and elsewhere) have shown they are albums that should be in my collection.

Never heard of them Bruce, where are they from.

Googled them and got - “One of the country’s top bands for the 2nd year in a row and the #1 variety dance band in Maryland.” (Not really my bag!)
or...
"contemporary but traditional sound - with fiddle, flutes and whistles guitars, bass and drums electricity lively loud fast - quiet sensitive good callers weddings parties anniversaries concerts dancing guaranteed"
or...
"The band's music includes the greatest chart toppers from the 50s to present:
Soul, Disco, Funk, Rock, Jazz, Easy, Pop, Rock & Roll, Mottown, Dance music etc. etc.
(The musicians can also play15-20min of Jewish music and a great selection of songs for wedding's first dance)"
or...
"Free Spirit is a hardworking and equally hard playing rock band hailing from Finland. Their music offers strong musicianship, soulful vocals and the essence of the great acts from the hardrock scene. Undercurrents of Celtic and folk music blend seamlessly with powerful guitars."

Hello Stuart...thanks for posting on our forum. It's good to see you here - and I hope to meet up with you again in June when I will be in Scotland for the first half of the month.

Not sure what Berny's "io" meant...but anyway...

The band you seek is, of course, the one from Finland featuriong Pasi Koivumaki (drums and percussion), Sami Hamalainen (bass), Marko Haapamaki (guitars), Timo Alho (keyboards), Vesa Yli-Maenpaa (guitars and bvs) and Sami Alho (vox).

I now have their latest offering 'All The Shades Of Darkened Light' in my possession and I will give it another listen before providing you with comment.

Well, Bruce's initial comment hits the nail right on the head as regards this album, Stuart.

It is fabulous melodic rock without a duff track in sight - and yet another killer release by a band from Finland. Funnily enough, and in relation to the track 'Hysteria', there's more than a smidgeon of early Def Leppard in the sound of the album...
