Dalton is a Swedish AOR band from the late 80´s. Their debut
album “ The Race Is On “ from ´87 included a song written by
Jon Bon Jovi entitled “ You´re not my lover ( but you were last
night ). That song became the bands big break thou. The band
released a second album in ´89 entitled “ Injection “ and shortly
there after they were dissolved.
Now the band has been reformed and have played some shows in
Sweden this year. The comeback album “ Pit Stop “ was released
The expectations on this album weren´t that high since it would be
very hard to live up to the albums from the 80´s.
So being mostly curious I started to listen to “ Pit Stop “, And
what did I get ?
After the first listening I was really surprised that the hole package
was such high quality. So I just started the second spin right away
. T he songs sounds great and could easily been released in the 80´s
. The sounds is ....
Who am I kidding ? This album is a Masterpiece !!!
AOR don´t get any better than this in the 2010´s. Everything is just
top nudge. And all the songs are just amazing. I get so ecstatic
when an album is this great. Even if the songs are great there are
always a few that you find just a little bit better than the rest. I
think those songs will change over time, but at the moment my top
songs of the album are, opening track “Ready or not” then “Hey
you”, “ One voice” and “Here we are”. And finally I found the
song that I have been searching for since my teenage years. That
is “TGIF”, Thank god it´s Friday! This song actually has managed
to capture that special feeling you get on any given Friday, You
know what I´m talking about.
Just for fun I put the song to the test and started to listen to it on
my way home from work on a Tuesday. And to my surprise that
Friday feeling showed up.
“Pit Stop” is probably the best album released in 2014 !
So don´t sit around waiting if you haven´t got your copy yet, go
out and get it !
