The show of course was exceptional and White Lion gave them a decent 9 song support slot. Reviewing albums from your youth is hard though, fully understand that some albums have residual meaning due to their proximity to the great times of our youth, but damn some of those albums are just great too despite the extra layers of meaning e attribute to them. Judging by the success of the album, the future is looking bright. And yet, the sheer quality of the album ensured it would be regarded as a cult classic among the Melodic Rock fraternity that, twenty-five years later, is still held in such high esteem. Where do I even begin? Where do you start with an album you have played countless times over the years, know every word, feel every chord and have such great memories sweeping around every song? A true slow-burner whose dynamics are gradually introduced as the song develops, it's enveloped in lush keyboard textures and saturated with immense vocal harmonies and a soaring chorus that is, quite simply, to die for; it's Tyketto at their most accomplished and sophisticated best. Truth be told, I loved all of the remaining nine songs on the album. Cookies used for the essential operation of the site have already been set.

I had visions that the rest of the album would turn into an audio slog. .
However, twenty-five years after it was unleashed, 2016 heralded the release of 'Reach' with a revamped line-up, an album that I have embraced for the last six months, and I now truly believe is actually every bit as good as, and can triumphantly stand shoulder-to-shoulder with 'Don't Come Easy', which as an immense Tyketto fan is a hell of a statement. A song to raise a glass to, a song to drive to, the love to, to live by. A deal with Geffen Records ensued, and with no expense spared Tyketto entered the studio in 1989 with acclaimed producer Richie Zito to record their debut album. All three were hugely influential on me, and two I still regard as each artiste's crowning glories one would be surpassed by 'New Jersey'. Back to the album, which even after all these years I still see as the best melodic Hard Rock record of the era.
Although 'Forever Young' is Tyketto's signature song, it's 'Sail Away' that is truly the band's most autobiographical, incorporating the story of how the friendship of the four original members developed and the band was formed, all during the course of a fantastic four-and-a-half minute Melodic Rock anthem, emerging from the stomping, acoustic intro into a full-blooded, commercial Rock anthem with another amazingly catchy chorus and double-tracked guitar solo to close the album in spectacular style. Already 800+ downloads and counting! A groove-laden Melodic Rocker with a powerful chorus and delightful guitar solo, it's seldom performed live but has always been a perennial favourite of mine.

But Tyketto certainly had the chops to have been a great band representing the more melodic side of hard rock and metal. It left me kind of cold, but after that quick little mis-step, the band blew out of the speakers like a bat out of hell and that increased epic sounding rocker became a huge piece of music for me. I guess that is as good a place as any. However, in the case of that song, the band chose to forgo telling another lame tale of love that may or may not have gone wrong. I still hold two of the bands in high esteem, my interest in one would eventually wane, I'll let you deduce which. One more band that deserves to be respectfully mentioned is Tyketto, of course.

The album was yet another Hard Rock release by Geffen who had their fair share of Rock artists. Check out the news section. No doubt, my enjoyment is intensified by the impetus that the new line-up has imbued within the band having my all-time favourite guitarist Chris Green amongst the ranks certainly enhances that aspect , but it's the wealth of variation throughout the twelve songs that I find so impressive.
