MR BIG Bitter Streets Soundfactor Records (2011)

Mr Big

Classic melodic rock from the 70s, and a new album for 2011. The British Mr Big were formed by Dicken and Eddie Carter, and their 1977 single Romeo was a massive hit.

Opener Come And Dance is solid yet gentle number with big production, guitar and piano in equal amounts. Georgia continues in a similar fashion, with vocals and guitar searing, the strings swirling.

Die In Love is slightly funky and has a melodic pop feel.

Bitter Streets is good solid melodic rock with some stand out guitar work but Chance Intrigue sounds too whimsical and programmed in comparison.

A fave from the album is God Save Me From The Blues, a well written number, solid and rocking.

The melodic rock moments stand out, where keyboards and guitar balance each other nicely, but the album is let down by the soft rock moments, which are a little poppy, bland or orchestrated.

These guys can write a decent melody, perform some decent harmonies, but when it gets lost in the production and programming it gets a little lost.
