Long time fan, keep up the good work and PLEASE TRY TO RELEASE SOME GOOD OLE ROCK!!!!!
Not a Country Album, But What Is, Is Amazing!!!
Neal Middleton and the boys announced this as a country album, which I believe is a mistake, because it is nothing like anything coming out of Nashville. Sure, you have the country elements of that style of music, banjo, slide, dobro and steel, but this sound is so much bigger than that.
In no way should this be taken as an insult to this masterwork of an EP that truly leaves me with only one complaint. Like Oliver Twist, I'm standing before the band with my empty CD case, asking "More please!?!"
Royal Bliss has stumbled on something here that despite other reviews, they should stay true to as they step forward. It is an album released with a great deal of maturity and finally, an understanding of what the "Royal Bliss" sound truly is.
Its fun, its loose, its four (now five) boys that have grown into men, but have not forgotten how to have a good time along the way. Its a mature band experience, in that its anthemic songs like Drown With Me and Living The Dream demand you sing along with them before you ever get the chance to truly know them. Once you do, you set your iPhone to repeat and dare yourself to get sick of the tracks. Not gonna happen!
So what is it, if not country? I think it best qualifies as Texas Rock, but being from Utah, that might be a stretch, but I know Bliss would have no problem selling out arenas from Beaumont to El Paso, Dallas to San Antonio.
All at once it pays tribute to the great Southern rockers that proceeded them, from Mountain to Marshall Tucker, Skynyrd to Free. "The Truth" is, this album should be marketed to anyone who would be excited to grab the newest Zac Brown CD, or Blackberry Smoke. It screams Southern Rock, but fails as a "Country" CD. And that is a good thing.
Nashville has seen enough cross-over from Bon Jovi to Steven Tyler. Keep in mind, this band started off as a ska/reggae band... This is a band that has matured into a group that is true to who they are and I feel who they've always been, as their reggae roots are nothing more than a Jamaican interpretation of American Country music at its core. So for Bliss, they have come home.
Don't stray far boys! Its an incredible sound which we can only hope will bring the kind of break away success you so richly deserve.
I hate it!
I used to be a huge long time fan of Royal Bliss. I have been listening to them since 2006. They were just a great rock and roll band. Now they have gone country and country is one of the worst types of music out there. I am very disappointed in the way their new music is sounding and the turn they have taken. Not only are they losing this fan, but I feel like I just lost one of my favorite bands.
