Answer, The: New Horizon

I fully realize that I may well be in the minority here especially as I have always previously been able to ignore The Answer but my four word review of New Horizon would read, "better than Rival Sons." Both bands feature a bluesy '70s vibe and in my humble opinion, one of them (The Answer) do it via top quality, well-focused songs and the other (Rival Sons) seem to do it by having powerful friends in the music media.

With production by former Little Angels' frontman Toby Jepson and a mix by the experienced hand of Mike Fraser New Horizon is full of swagger, riffs, power and melody. Nowhere is this better encapsulated than in the title track itself. There are elements of funk throughout the album and bassist Micky Waters plays an absolute blinder, as, to be fair do all the band on what is by far their best record yet.

The single, "Spectacular" is, well…quite good if not actually spectacular but it is easy to see why this is the initial release as it is a highly effective slab of modern blues rock. At ten songs the album is concise enough and if it comes in a vinyl version I might actually buy it and coming from someone who gets stuff free, that is high praise.
