STATE OF SALAZAR - ALL THE WAY

FRONTIERS RECORDS

AUGUST 22 2014

 

 

Smooth AOR full of light and melody is just what State of Salazar do, and boy do they do it well. If opener ‘I Believe in You’ isn’t quite enough then there is more than enough on the rest of the album here to convince you.

 

So hold on and prepare to be delivered back in time to the early eighties with an album that certainly sounds more than capable of holding its own with the big names of the day. Add some passionate vocals from songwriter Marcus Nygren , some heavenly harmonies, and a far more than competent guitar and backline and it’s a great mix. It’s the keys though that really seal the deal for us.

 

 If you want to sample the best try the title track first hen ‘Time to Say Goodbye’ or your pick of the weighty ballads, maybe starting with ‘End of Time’ which just edges things.

 

Well worth exploring.
