Wild Rose – Hit ‘N’ Run
Written by Juliano Mallon
Wild Rose made their debut 4 years ago with "Half Past Midnight", an album that showed the Greeks were a promising act. Last year they released "Dangerous", a much better album that featured the talented David A. Saylor as vocalist. And following on this upward curve, the band is back in business with “Hit ‘N’Run”, an album that proves, once and for all, that Wild Rose is a band to look out for.
Keeping intact the winning formula that mixes guitars and keyboards with a strong 80’s influence, I can surely say that, if you liked the band’s previous albums, “Hit ‘N’ Run” is a mandatory purchase.
For starters, I could mention the catchy radio friendly rockers "Through The Night", "I'll Be There", "Stay", "Another Day" (one of my favorite tracks) and the explosive "Can't Wait On Love", maybe the highlight of the album.
And when you thought it couldn’t get any better, enters "Give In To Me" (with its perfectly balanced guitars and keyboards) and the killer "I Want Your Love" (another personal favorite ) closing the tracklist.
Oh, but there are some pretty cool ballads as well, like the poingnant "Without Your Love" (what a melody!) and "Together", a mid-pacer so powerful it could make the Minotaur take a stroll through a slaughterhouse.
Summin’ up, dear ones, I see Wild Rose growing with each album they put out and “Hit ‘N’ Run” is proof of that. David A. Saylor’s exquisite vocals is a valuable addition to the band’s work. The arrangements and production are also noteworthy, making this album one of the best surprises on the year. Though strongly influenced by the 80’s “Hit ‘N’ Run” is far from sounding dated, as the songs carry a perfect mix of 80’s elements blended with a more contemporary sound.
And if that’s what you’re looking for, believe me, you MUST grab a copy of Wild Rose’s “Hit ‘N’ Run”.
