Wow, this album is truly amazing! Since the return of Hard/Glam Metal after a long hiatus, those same old and good musical genres that were great successes in USA (especially in California) moved to Europe. That catchy melodic feeling from old days came back, as the English quintet MIDNITE CITY is here to state with their first album, “Midnite City”. It’s amazing that a band that has no more than one year of existence could reach such level of quality. But as we take a deeper look at the bands members, we will see that they took part in acts as TIGERTAILZ, VEGA, STEEVI JAIMZ and TEENAGE CASKET COMPANY, BLOOD RED SAINTS and others. So we can say that they have experience enough to do so.

On this album, you’ll find the same and good Glam Metal/AOR from the 80s, with charming melodies and excellent sticky choruses. It’s clear that the band shows a great amount of vicious energy with fine musical arrangements. It’s like we could have a band with the same elements as BON JOVI or DANGER DANGER on their earlier albums, but it is not a copy. It’s alive, charming and dangerous! Produced and mixed by Pete Newdeck (the band’s drummer), and the mastering was done on Canada by Harry Hess in his studio, the result is that sound quality of “Midnite City” is really excellent. To sound as clear as it sounds, but with the needed level of weight, is great achievement. All is clear, all is heavy, and all is excellent, just like that.

The album’s songs are all excellent, and as I said above: it’s really amazing to hear such maturity on a band’s first album. To my nephews and nieces, I truly recommend you to pay attention to the heavy weight of “We Belong” with its excellent chorus and backing vocals, the melodic guitars and catchy melodies of “Ghost of My Old Friends”, the extremely accessible “Summer of Our Lives” (very good bass guitar and drums’ presence), the elegant ballad “Everything You Meant to Me”, the typical Pop AOR/Glam song “Can’t Wait for the Nights” with its very good vocals and guitars, and the fine Glam melodies that flows from “One Step Away”. Here I wrote about 50% of the songs, but I recommend you to hear and be hooked by all the songs.

Excellent work, guys, and hope MIDNITE CITY won’t be a band with only one album, because the more you hear “Midnite City”, the more of the band you want to hear. ~ review by Marcos "Big Daddy" Garcia
