91 SUITE – Starting All Over (2019) *EXCLUSIVE*
Released today, “Starting All Over” is the comeback record from Spanish AOR band 91 SUITE after almost 15 years, presented in exclusive at 0dayrox. The group released two celebrated albums during the past decade, and after some member’s personal projects, reunited again. This is classic AOR / Melodic Rock with sweet choruses and rich harmony vocals.
Founding members vocalist Jesus Espin and guitarist Ivan Gonzalez reunited in 2017 to organize 91 Suite’s 20th Anniversary tour, and the response resulted so successful that the guys decided to stat to work in a new album.
“Starting All Over” – title speaks for itself – is in fact and advance EP from the full length album the band will release early 2020.
If you never heard 91 Suite, you’ll be surprised by their songwriting quality, and their stupendous musicianship / musicality.
Take equal parts of FM, Lionville, Bon Jovi, Wild Rose, add a dash of Mr. Big and Hardline, and you have 91 Suite.
Title tack and opener is wonderfully arranged and delivered little Melodic Rock gem. Seriously, this is one of the best dongs in the genre I heard this year.
But 91 Suite loves AOR, pure AOR I’d say, and follower ‘Perfect Rhyme’ is a brute diamond. Candy floss pianos / synths, heavenly guitars and Jesus clean, clear vocals for a winner. You’ll fell in love with this song, bringing to mind vintage Virginia Wolf, FM … WOW
Joyful melodic guitars and a pumping bass line is the main heart of ‘Nothing Left for Us’… melodic rock at its best. A mix of Strangeways and Lionville. Awesome tune!
‘Something About You’ is the ballad here, an AOR ballad, yet with a rock pulse, akin 1988 Bon Jovi, and I would add Def Lepp / Hysteria feel in terms of sonic delivery. Killer ballad.
‘All for Love’ is the most rocking number here, driven by a monster Mr. Big-like guitar riff, some Hardline in the chorus, and massive harmonies. Darn, 91 Suite rocks greatly too…
Unfortunately, with the impressive atmospheric midtempo AOR magic of ‘Am the One’ the album comes to an end, leaving you hungry for more.
The EP “Starting All Over” packs some of the best Melodic Rock / AOR tunes you’ll hear in 2019, BELIEVE ME.
And yes, 91 Suite is one of THE comebacks of the year. Do yourself a favor and GRAB this NOW.
