The company was known as Gibson Guitar Corp. As most of you know by now, Myles holds a special place in my heart and mind, as a human being and as a musician. I was in awe the first time I heard the title track, I was surprised by how much I loved it. I would struggle to categorise this album in a specific genre, which to me is actually a good thing.
The day the album was released I was already well acquainted with the title track already. The intro is very theatrical and I was in absolute awe. If you want to know the calibre of the musician that Myles is, then that is the track you need to listen to. His skills on guitar is impeccable and the note that Myles hits in that chorus amazes me every time I listen to it.
You can hear the passion in this song and it reminds me a little bit of Spanish guitar combined with theatrics. An easy listening song where you can appreciate the lyrics.
This song is definitely a fan favourite. I had the privilege of seeing and meeting Myles on the first show of his solo tour, read my review here: The band has grown and incorporated solid lyrics, vocals and diversity in their sound compared to their other releases. They have managed to create something that is pleasing to the ear, even if you are not a heavy metal fan.
They manage to get the combination just right. I would like to elaborate on this story on the blog soon. It is a powerful song and one of the stars on this album. It is a stellar performance and even the version with only Tommy on vocals is outstanding.
