VEGA - Stereo Messiah (Pre-View)

Friday, October 17, 2014
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…
What out for the killer tracks Wherever We Are, Neon Heart, With Both Hands, The Wild The Weird The Wonderful – all magnificent melodic rock anthems. But there’s more.
All Or Nothing has to be one of the band’s best songs…Or maybe that accolade goes to the dramatic, moody rocker The Fall…or maybe it’s the breezy anthemic Gonna Need Some Love Tonight.
But then there’s the multi-layered The Ballad Of The Broken Hearted! Only another 100 spins of this album will determine the truth!
The duet with Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott on DL track 10x Bigger Than Love and other songs on Stereo Messiah show that Def Leppard have a successor to their crown biting at their heels.
Mark this one down too folks - VEGA deliver a true highlight of 2014 and any year for fans of pure melodic rock.
If you liked Vega before, you are going to LOVE this one!
Due out October 17.
