In most cases, albums of bands that have paused for many years should be treated with caution. Either the musicians try to make you "modern" in a cramped way or they no longer have the creative power of youth. Bad News Reunion from Hamburg are fortunately an exception, because they kept their musical feeling. Julian Dawson, who performs on two tracks with his harmonica, recognized this as well. Singer-Songwriter-influenced songs with a lot of feeling ("Come Over Here"), groovy Melancholic Rock ("Moon Over You"), a little Folk ("Arrow In My Heart"), sometimes a Pop-Rock-Track ("Boulevard Of Dreams") or a song where the great sentence singing is in the foreground ("Moment In Time"), seem fresh and pleasantly escaping, which again is relativized by a Blues rocker like "Bee Goes To The Sea". A great disc, which makes you want to listen to the reissues already released by Sireena. The new studio album comes in a four-page digipak with a 16-page booklet.
