Sweden’s Bad Habit is relatively new to me and that has been my loss. Discovering them only last year when they put together a greatest hits package called ‘Timeless’ certainly caught my attention.

2011 sees them with a new album packed to the rafters with melodic gems.  This is simply a great CD with rarely a dull moment and a good few gems like opener ‘In The Heat Of The Night’; ‘I Wanna Be The One’; the ballad ‘Angel Of Mine’ and ‘Words Are Not Enough’.

But it’s the overall quality that elevates this one. Without a real dud in sight it’s a winner that reminds me of both early Bonfire and later Gotthard.  Nice keys, great vocals, wonderful guitar and a great production job makes this a keeper.

Now to backtrack and really find out what I’ve been missing.
