AOR HEAVEN 2013
Four years ago COVERED CALL delivered their very promising debut album, „Money Never Sleeps“, and played some strong live shows (a. o. at Sweden Rock festival). Now the band from Sweden finally delivers the somphomore album, “Impact”, with new bass-player Andy Loos (LIONS SHARE) and master class singer Göran Edman (Yngwie Malmsteen, BRAZEN ABBOT, STREET TALK) replacing Thomas Vikström on board. Musically nothing has changed as COVERED CALL still stand for classic Melodic Rock with powerful guitars and soft keyboards. Maybe the new songs are a little more AOR and due to the unique voice of Göran Edman they have a little different vibe. The highlights are the straight opener “Lorraine”, the colorful mid-tempo tune “Look Into Your Mind”, the guitar- and multi-layered vocal-driven “Hold On”, the thoughtful sounding “Nothing Last Forever” and the opulently arranged “Last Goodbye”. All songs are on a very high level and even after a few listens they don’t show any sign of wear. If you enjoyed the first COVERED CALL, then don’t miss “Impact”. And for the fans of Göran Edman it’s an essential purchase!
