Great Britain rocks - not least thanks to these five young men from Reading. What sounds carefree in the ears and very American here is the second album of the band Exit Ten, which was sold four years ago as a British guitar band hope. As on their debut album, powerful riffs of metal and hard rock are combined with beautiful melodies and vocal lines. Quiet passages experience dramatic increases, strings are used. Actually, there's nothing wrong with that. Nevertheless the feeling creeps up on you that here and there something was applied too thickly. But those who like to experience great emotions in rock, transported by a lot of pathos, will certainly not be disappointed here. Typical example of a song that arouses contradictory feelings: "Suggest A Path". Is this just a wonderful rock ballad or too much of a good thing? In any case, the band follows the highly dramatic track very consistently and thus remains credible.
