Quite Simply this is the best Ryche album in a very long time, I would venture a guess as far back as EMPIRE in fact, though in my opinion Empire is better. What I think folks fail to realize before they write a review here is that this is a follow up to a brilliant concept album, and with that there is a complex story line that needs to be concluded…so why would it be simple, or easy to get right away….it’s not, first time I heard this album, I was yes…disapointed too, in fact it took about 6-7 spins before it started to grow on me….but, it did grow each and every time.
And by that 8th time there are only a few songs that I’m not really enjoying, however, no big, there is A LOT of songs on this album….17 if I remember correctly so who cares if a few aren’t all that…???
There are some amazing tracks on here and it is a great album, it’s just that as classic Ryche fans…we put the original so far up on the rychter scale that anything they would release would be hard pressed to compete!
