VEGA - Stereo Messiah (Review)

 
I really dig these guys. They are already 2 for 2 and now they drop a third collection of uptempo, anthemic melodic rock, delivered with an unmistakable energy, mixing the very best of classic 80s stadium rock with a distinctly modern twist.
Its band like Vega and the likes of Heat, Degreed and Work Of Art that are the future of moving this scene forward.
If it was still 1987, Stereo Messiah would be wall to wall hit singles from start to finish. Each track has its own mood, but each track has a bombastic chorus and layers of guitar, keyboards and vocals. It’s almost as if each song is in competition with the tracks either side of it, taking on a competitive persona, trying to outdo each other as the album progresses.
This is basically 52 minutes of anthems. And that could be about the only possible issue anyone could raise. There isn’t a lot of space on the album for the listener to take a breather. Its relentless harmonies and hooks from start to finish. That’s a tough situation to be in!

VEGA - Stereo Messiah (Pre-View)

Fresh from the musical joy that is Work Of Art, I have another album fighting for my attention. British band VEGA is back with their third album “Stereo Messiah”. Oh boy, does this album deliver folks….it delivers BIG TIME!
 
It looks like the band that serves up tasty melodic rock with a modern twist have bettered both previous efforts to deliver their best album to date. I’m all over this album, with track after track of powerfully delivered, anthemic, melodic bliss, all in a style that really shows that these new bands know how to keep an aging genre alive and fresh.
 
So right now I’m pretty much on a Work Of Art/Vega playback loop…
