iTunes Review

Royal Bliss are nothing if not survivors—they’ve endured years of hard touring and label changes, not to mention lead singer Neal Middleton’s near-fatal fall from a balcony in 2003. These experiences lend depth to Chasing the Sun, the Salt Lake City–based band’s self-released seventh album. The quartet have refined their blend of classic hard rock and post-grunge with each successive release; Middleton’s commanding snarl defines the band’s music, supported by Taylor Richards’ burly guitar work and the adamant rhythm section of bassist Dwayne Crawford and drummer Jake Smith. Royal Bliss switch from blazing frontal assaults (“Welcome”) to strutting funk grooves (“Rock You All Night Long”) and melodic arena-sized ballads (“Impossible”) with easy confidence. Lyrically, “Dreamer” and “Home” radiate a scarred but defiant idealism, while “Cry Sister” and “Turn Me On” seethe with erotic tension and danger. The album’s most revealing moment may be “Drink My Stupid Away,” a piano-centered confession that hints at the rough road the band have sometimes traveled.

Customer Reviews

Consistently GREAT!

Again, Royal Bliss has put out an album full of heart and soul, fears and dreams, with the occasional primal scream thrown in for good measure. Neal Middleton's voice carries the emotions throughout the rock, from the quiet loneliness of life on the road to the in-your-face bravada of life on the stage. Each song has a story told with the insistent beat of good old hard rock. This band has paid their dues, and deserves all the accolades they are garnishing. The single 'Cry Sister' has been all over the airwaves, and with this and their previous albums they have created a body of work that just gets better with each listen.
