Amazing to think the classic album ‘Out Of The Silence’ is thirty years old, and also frightening to think where did the time go?! Like fellow melodic rockers FM did on ‘Indiscreet’, Dare have decided to re-record a classic album, mainly so they can get back the musical rights which the original record label are seemingly reluctant to release to the band.

Some fans when they heard the news thought it was going to be a sequel, however as Darren Wharton states the album has been re-recorded and “has taken on a new life.” Darren Wharton is joined by original guitarist Vinny Burns, Kev Whitehead (drums), the ‘Blood From Stone’ album’s bassist Nigel Clutterbuck and Marc Roberts (keys).

You just can’t go wrong with this album from the opening keys on ‘Abandon’ through to the closing notes of ‘Don’t Let Go’, it is as the oft used phrase says ‘all killer, no filler’.

Darren’s vocals are still in fine form as can be heard on the aforementioned ‘Abandon’, where his singing on the chorus is still a magical moment on the ears and senses. The keys still pomp it up on ‘Into The Fire’ (original keyboards player Professor Brian Cox is otherwise engaged!).

There are a few musical tweaks such as on the tribute to Phil Lynott ‘King Of Spades’ the band add a little more Celtic music to the song (as does ‘Raindance’), something the band have done since 1998′s ‘Calm Before The Storm’. The guitar outro on ‘King Of Spades’ is from Thin Lizzy’s ‘Black Rose’. Vinny Burns lays down a few rockier solos and the awesome ballad ‘Nothing Is Stronger Than Love’ has a bigger production and a stunning guitar solo that possibly tops the original.

The original album was a classic of its time and still sounds good today. With this re-recorded version it allows the band to celebrate the album’s anniversary their way and add a few modern touches here and there, whilst keeping true to the original album’s feel and sound. ****
