Mike & The Mechanics: Let Me Fly

The first Mechanics album in some six years and their eighth in a career spanning four decades, Let Me Fly finds Mike Rutherford once again accompanied by dual vocalists Andrew Roachford and Tim Howar. The trio first linked up on 2011's comeback album The Road which was followed by some extensive touring which has continued through 2017 and this summer will see the band supporting none other than Phil Collins at a festival taking place in London's Hyde Park. And having struck gold back in the 80's with the smooth and silky voice of Paul Carrack perfectly complementing the raspy style of the late Paul Young you have to say that Rutherford most definitely secured the services of another remarkable pairing with Roachford's heartfelt soul giving way to Howar's more theatrical and dramatic tones.

The opening pair of songs sums up the Mechanics doing what they do best, a mellow, laid back title track with a soaring message of hope that is followed by the up-tempo and punchy 'Are you Ready'; evidencing the yin and the yang of the two vocalists and yet very much working as one. Thirty odd years and eight albums since Rutherford put together the Mechanics to complement his day job the band and its leader are still going strong with the pleading 'Save the World' and lead single 'Don't Know What Came Over Me' just a couple of the other highlights across an album that is full of them. Top quality song-writing and some incredible vocals make Let Me Fly another terrific addition to the Mechanics catalogue.
