Winter is a Swedish Band who released their self titled debut album in 1999 and who have now built up a healthy following in the UK. Fast forward to 2010 and this release (their third) features eleven new songs from the pen of vocalist and main lady Anna-Lena Winter. What we have here is a selection of laid back rockers all on the theme of love, the good, the bad along with a healthy dose of lust and longing. No fillers on this release and I really do find this album a good listen, particularly after a hard day at the office. Check out ‘Face On The Wall’ which is one of my favourites on this release, while there is also a country vibe aswell, this vibe being found on tracks that include the ultra catchy ‘Cccc’mon’, the slower ‘Book of Love’, the superb ‘Crazy’ and the awesome ‘Run’. If you are a metal head, this may not appeal, but to anybody that enjoys a good listen to some catchy laid back rock music with an organic and accoustic feel, this may well be for you. Sure worth checking out at www.myspace.com/winternet. Gets released 24th May….good stuff so sit back and enjoy this cool and refreshing album.
