Lost Weekend – “Evermore”

Lost Weekend – “Evermore” (AOR Heaven)

At last – the comeback album by these long running classic British rockers! Lost Weekend have been together for 18 years and are made up of musicians who individually over the last 35 years have rocked stages across the world, and yet as a band have never made it big themselves. There was a brief flirt with fame in 2006 when the band backed Bob Catley live and so impressed was he that he asked them to pen his next solo album ‘Spirit Of Man’. It’s easy to see why as Lost Weekend in their mellower moments come close to the pomp majesty of Magnum while forming a bridge to the mainstream rock and AOR worlds. Listening to songs like ‘Perfect Day’, ‘Falling By The Wayside’ and ‘Do You Remember’ musically it’s a mix of US AOR in the melodies and harmonies coupled with a distinct Brit rock sound along the lines of Thunder or UFO, especially in Paul Uttley’s vocals. Compared to their recent material that was far more guitar driven, the return of Irvin Parratt’s keyboards on “Evermore” features more balance in the mix akin to the band’s early sound. After their hiatus, this is a fine comeback album from these veteran rockers whose heart and faith in their music has never waned and the rest of us should take inspiration from that.
