Naked - Get Naked
Naked is a Swedish melodic Hard rock /AOR band formed by Mats Stat tin, playing the kind of rock that is very reminiscent of the kind of stuff coming out in the early 90's, like a softer Helloween (Pink Bubbles Go Ape and Chameleon era). The songs are well written, and its refreshing to here this kind of music again especially as its written and performed so well!
I was surprised how good they sounded. Not sensational but still very good with a singer Petri Vehviläinen who sounds some what like Bjorn Lodin(Baltimore)!
If nothing more Naked offer a great walk down memory lane, but lets not sell this band short, the songs are generally very good, the production is ok, a little thin in place's maybe, with a little too much emphasis on the keyboards, this album really needs the drums to have a heavier/more powerful sound which would then raise the songs to the next level.
A good solid album, not going to set the world on fire, but enjoyable all the same.
