TONY O’HARA Escape Into The Sun Frontiers (2005)

Another new project by Magnus Karlsson (Starbreaker/Allen & Lande), where he plays all the instruments and handles production duties.

On vocals we have ex-Praying Mantis/Andy Scott’s Sweet vocalist Tony O’Hara, who sings up a storm.

The main drawback though is that the songs are listenable but lack any real soul/passion - it would have been good to have more musicians involved I feel.

There are some good moments notably the guitar fuelled title track and the slower ‘My Final Prayer’. Vocally it hits the spot, it is just the songs that fail to leave any lasting impression.

Perhaps after two great albums in one year featuring the talents of Magnus Karlsson (Starbreaker and Allen/Lande) a third one was an album too far.
