EDEN Oblivion Z Records (2008)

Eden's second album and a new label for the band focussed around Vince O'Reagn (Alibi/Pulse/Bob Catley) and vocalist Nick Workman (Kick). Overall this album sees the band go for a heavier edge especially in the guitar riffs as can be heard on the title track opener.

There are some cracking hard and mean rockers like 'New Tattoo' and 'Higher', both of which have big hook filled choruses. But there are a couple of pedestrian tunes like 'I Dopn't Do The Blues' which despite some nice guitar lacks any real hook. Eden's debut album hinted at TNT whereas this new album is more like fellow UK rockers Burn or latter day Pink Cream 69. The vocals of Nick Workman are as ever a joy to hear and on 'As Good As It Gets' he even sounds like a younger Bruce Dickinson!

A harder edged direction from the band which works in most cases and those who enjoyed their debut offering will certainly enjoy this follow-up.
