Sweden seems to be a hotbed of all things rock and Rob Ban joins the
ranks of the ‘must hear’. Musically it would most probably be classed as ‘nu
breed of melodic rock’ - don’t you just love these musical tags? To these
ears it is an album chock full of breezy pop rock tunes like ‘ I Wanna Fly’
(has to be a single this one) and ‘Just Like That’. The songs have modern
loops/synths which beef-up the core bass/guitar/drum sound.
Excellent production throughout by Ban himself and Kenny Elfstrom lays down some
cracking guitar solos but without ruining the overall sound of the songs.
Rob Ban has a great set of vocals, with nearest comparison would be prime
time Rick Springfield ot the criminally under rated Jude Cole. Only ‘I’m
Still’ wanes after repeated plays, otherwise the tunes remain in your head
and provide the prefect soundtrack for summer!
