FIND ME – Angels In Blue [Japan Edition +1] (2019)
One of the most amazing AOR projects of this decade – FIND ME – consisting of lead vocalist Robert LaBlanc, drummer Daniel Flores, keyboardist Sören Kronquist, rhythm guitarist Philip Lindstrand, lead guitarist Michael Palace and bassist Johnny Trobro have ready their third studio album “Angels In Blue“, which will be released via Frontiers Music on February 22, 2019, and tomorrow will see the light this Japanese Edition.
Let me put this clear from the start: Robert LaBlanc did it again.
One of the strongest songwriters in the genre – read AOR / Melodic Rock – and owner of a heavenly set of vocal pipes built to perform this type of Rock, LaBlanc is ‘the guy’.
I mean, nowadays you expect this kind of stuff from Scandinavian, Italian or Greek artists.
Sure, the rest of members in Find Me are Swedish and all contribute with that special touch, especially Daniel Flores in production, keys and general instrumentation, but in its core, Find Me / “Angels In Blue” is LaBlanc’s baby.
Do you really need a highlight-track list? I don’t think so.
All “Angels In Blue” is superb.
And please don’t argue something like ‘songs are a bit repetitive’, ‘production could be more varied’, etc… they don’t make albums like this anymore… Robert LaBlanc did it.
