PRIDE OF LIONS / THE ROARING OF DREAMS ('07)

Prideoflionstheroaringofdreams_1 SAMPLE
Frontires Records所属のメロディアスハード・バンドの3rd。
高揚感溢れる王道メロディアスハードはそのままですが、80s中期を思い起こさせるようなやや古臭い印象を受ける作品になっています。
もちろんこれはマイナスではなく、80sファンにとってはニヤリとしてしまうところですね(笑)
これは「前作はプログレッシブな内容だったから、『VITAL SIGNS』のような
もっとコマーシャルなスタイルに戻ろうとした。」

というJimの考えによるものでしょう。
メロディ・アレンジとも徹底的に練り込まれた、
一点の曇りも無い完璧なメロディアスハードです。
ただメロディが憶えにくいところがあり、聴き込みが必要ではあります。
聴き込んでメロディを憶えてしまえば素晴らしいメロディを楽しめるのですが、
その辺は賛否あるところだと思います。
あとJimがリードVo.を取る割合が増えたのはマイナスですね。
JimのVo.はややルーズで上ずり気味なところがあり、
割合が少ない分にはTobyとの対比を楽しめるのですが・・・
TobyのオペラティックなVo.のほうが合っているのではないでしょうか。

躍動感溢れるキャッチーな王道メロディアスハード "Heaven Of Earth"、
HRのカッコよさを感じさせる "Book Of Life"、
ロマンティックなメロウチューン "Love's Eternal Flame"、
サビが鳥肌もののカッコよさのキラーチューン "Language Of The Heart"、
ドラマティックで美しいバラード "Faithful Heart"、
大仰で威風堂々とした "The Roaring Of Dreams"、
2人の掛け合いが見事な、キャッチーなメロディアスハード "Tall Ships"、
オペラティックに唄い上げる感動のバラード "Turnaround" と、名曲佳曲揃いです。
メロディアスハードファンは必聴です。
【92点】

>jimmyさん
jimmyさんの記事も読まさせていただきました。
メロハーとしては珍しいスルメ型の作品ですね。
この辺がイマイチ日本で人気が爆発しないところなんでしょうか。

>あっこさん
初めまして!
ホントに彼らの最高傑作ですよね。感動的です。
あっこさんのレビュー楽しみに待ってます♪

はじめまして!

PRIDE OF LIONS / THE ROARING OF DREAMS 素晴らしいですね。
1作目から大ファンで待望の新作ですが、文句無しの大傑作でした。
全体的なバランスも良く、いいですね。
私のブログでも、レビューしようかと思っています。
最高です(*^。^*)

お久しぶりです。
早速トラックバックさせてもらいました。
自分もこの作品は大いに気に入っています。
「メロディが憶えにくいところがあり」と書かれていますが、確かにその点については同感ですね。でもそのへんのヒネクレ具合も含めて、自分はこのアルバムが結構好きだったりします(笑)
