(CD, AOR Blvrd Records, 2014)

Greece’s WILD ROSE has been active for ten years now. Being the brainchild of guitarist Andy Rock, the band from Salonica now releases its third full-length CD, simply entitled “Hit ‘N’ Run”, and fans of the melodic Rock/AOR style have one good reason to cherish this recording.

The album sees a total of eleven songs that belong, as I said, to the AOR genre. The craftsmanship is notable and the songs themselves are of high class. The vocals are warm and passionate and are backed adequately by some velvet guitars that breathe emotion. The keyboards add some nice layers of melody and the drums/bass lines are simple yet passionate too. The overall feeling the fan will get depends on the partial mood of the moment but in total the album offers some nice moments of melody with some mid-paced numbers that are adequate for some night drive or for exposing your emotions, huh.

There’s not much to be added here. “Hit ‘N’ Run” is a nice melodic Rock album and WILD ROSE can now be credited as an established force in the European AOR scene. The fact that this band comes from Greece makes no difference; good music sees no borders, my friends.
