If this is ‘Spain’s leading melodic hard rock’ act, it’s obvious the Spanish scene must not have much on offer. Not that this album ‘Changes’, the fourth studio album so far for Airless is a bad album, but it’s certainly not original.
I must admit I don’t know much of the Spanish music scene, but in the past they had a few bands I liked, for instance – but this may sound to prehistoric bands to some of you – there was Baron Rojo, and later on I also liked Heroes Del Silencio, but that about sums it up. Of course you had the Troy brothers, who played- and still are playing – in Praying Mantis, but you can hardly call that a Spanish band. Now let us s review this album. What Airless brings us is basically AOR mixed with hard rock. Their music can best be compared to what bands like Casanova or Frontline bring us.
Despite lacking in originality, I found this album very pleasing to listen to.
