PHENOMENA “Awakening”

(Escape Music)
I never cared for Phenomena in the 80s when they first appeared on the scene. A metal opera concept album wasn’t exactly my cup of java back then. Not really my cup of java today either and with so many different musical projects that involves different musicians these days Phenomena ain’t that special anymore. Having said that if you only concentrate on the music and leave all the other stuff aside this is a really good hardrock album. Strong melodies and a cast that really know what they are doing make this a winner in my ears. And for that reason alone this album deserves your attention. If you like good old hardrock as it was done in the 80s and without any special eye to the latest trends, just good music, then you’d be stupid to miss out on this one. Anders Ekdahl
