FM – Heroes and Villains Album Review
FM, the melodic British rockers, will release their ninth studio album “Heroes and Villains” on April 17th in Europe and April 21st, 2015 in the US – here is our take on it!
The album features twelve nicely produced tracks of AOR/melodic hard rock these rock veterans and the band does not disappoint in the face of the ultra-high expectations we had for this release. You will hear all the familiar sounds and hooks you would expect from the big bands in the this genre, but it never sounds like this is a copy and paste album – don’t get us wrong there!
Highlight on this album for us:
“Incredible” – A heart-melting ballad, perfect for those romantic date nights. Steve Overland’s voice really shines on this one and the background harmonies are sweet as can be.
“Cold Hearted” – A grooving number with tasteful guitars and organs which turns into a mid-tempo sing-a-long stomper in the chorus. This one will be great live…and you can find the official video below!
“Shape I’m In” – Fun! This is a song Huey Lewis and the News wish they had written.
“I Want You” – Great chorus, super vocal work and fantastic guitars on this mid tempo “make you feel good song”. The boys blew it out of the park with this one.
