I’m old enough to remember Shy’s debut album “Once Bitten… Twice Shy”. Not that I remember too much of it but I still have memories of it. That was in the early 80s. Now it is 2011. Is Shy still relevant even to an modern hardrock audience? I gotta say that this is so much heavier than I remember or even expected from Shy. Even with the keyboard in the background this is pretty much a heavy metal album. I kinda expected a fluff and fold kind of hardrock album. Big hair and sparkly spandex trousers. This brought on a big smile and a feeling of sunshine and warmth in mid-October that was much needed. Shy are very much relevant in today’s hardrock/heavy metal climate. It’s like they’ve never been away. Bloody hell what a surprise. Anders Ekdahl
