GRAND DESIGN/Viva La Paradise (GMR Music)

This is another cool rock n roll band, though they are more on the melodic side and that worked fine by me. Singer Felipe Saether has an incredible voice on this, and he sings the songs with such passion and emotion it wasn’t funny. I was hanging on his every word. The music is melodic rock with plenty of hooks and melodies, and the songs are big-time catchy and memorable. They don’t sound like but think of bands like Journey or Styx. They to me have their original sound, and they blow away any of these new rock bands that write and play garbage formula rock that belongs in the toilet. Fourteen tunes on this puppy and not a bad one in the bunch. Fantastic cover of Kansas’s “Fight Fire With Fire” too. Rock at its finest. Info:
