3,5 out of 5
When I listen to the 3rd album "Who we are" from German based rock band Flash Forward, I hear traces of both classic rock like Cheap Trick as well as contemporary rocknroll like Foo Fighters. Not to mention, delivered in a package full of pop punk flavor.
"Who we are" is the follow up the 2014 release "Apollon" that contains the Palace of Rock fave "Are you out there", even if I can´t find any songs that reaches the same level as that smashing song. I do like the new album a lot because of the crispy production and the top quality of the entire album.
They might not get an award for being unique, but in this case, this band truly knows how to write good songs with hooks.
Highlights : Skyline, Physical, We are
