Honeymoon Disease - The Transcendence, album review

Shocking Lilt

This Swedish rock group is firmly down to earth in its hard rock roots, but have transcended the nomenclature norm in naming themselves after the vernacular for cystitis. With the excellent female lead vocal of Jenna, her Scandanavian-English lilt - but the pure, precise tone too - reminds, perhaps inevitably, of Dutch band Shocking Blue and its vocalist Mariska Veres. Opener Higher is the most varied track on the album with its choric start, though it is quickly into dual guitar rock riffing and we know what we will be getting for the rest. But this is a fine generic track, as are the rest on this retro rock road heavily traveled of late. It is a welcome route.
