SALUTE Heart Of the Machine Escape Music (2010)


Another melodic rock master class courtesy of our Scandinavian neighbours, with slick production from the off Salute's new album 'Heart of The Machine' has the lot- great guitars, big vocals, tight backing vocals (care of Bangalore Choir's David Reece) and, of course, those killer hooks and choruses. Fans of vocalist Mikael Erlandsson's solo work- or indeed his stuff with Last Autumns Dream, will not be disappointed with this album at all.

Without a doubt the highlights on the album are tracks 'Heart of The Machine', 'Tearing Me Down', 'Train of Rock N Roll' and 'Your Servant tonight' - special mention must also be made of the guitar solo on opening track 'Higher'. This type of album would not be complete without a couple of ballads and 'I Will Be There' is a fine example. 'Heart of The Matter' also has a darker side and this is evident in track 'The Long Haul'.

The album was produced by guitarist Martin Kronlund and he has done a sterling job throughout, 'Heart of The Machine' will not be leaving my CD player any time soon. This one comes highly recommended.
