COASTLAND RIDE - On Top Of The World [retail]

COASTLAND RIDE - On Top Of The World [retail] full

With the recent new COASTLAND RIDE album, one of you asked for their previous which has become pretty hard to find in good quality or physical CD copy. "On Top Of The World" is Coastland Ride's second effort, as always with this band's recordings, immaculately arranged to detail with a pristine production.

Whether it's by purpose or chance, Coastland Ride's name gives you a hint to their musical style. These three Swedes deliver stylized AOR / Melodic Rock with an elegant West Coast touch in the classy L.A. tradition.á
Coastland Ride was formed in 1997 by three friends and musicians, Markus Nordenberg (lv,bv), Anders Rybank (k,g,b), and Mikael Bohlin (k,g), wanting to record and publish the tunes they've accumulated over the years.á
The first result was their eponymous debut in 2003, recently reissued in a remastered form plus 3 bonus tracks, also featured on this blog (follow 'Labels' below).

It took some time for Coastland Ride to get this "On Top Of The World" ready, and that's mostly because Nordenberg & Co. are true perfectionists. Expect classic AOR / West Coast in the Scandinavian style here: breezy, easy melodies, lush vocal arrangements in harmony, catchy hooks and choruses, and some elaborated guitar work.á
That last characteristic truly brightens, even over shadows, this album. Guitar solos were provided by Sven Larsson (Street Talk, Lionville) and Leif Eriksson (Winterlong), and all are truly excellent.

Ultimately, Coastland Ride lets the music do the talking.á
The easy, feel good vibe of West Coast AOR comes through on "Wait", title track "On Top Of The World", "Strange Confusion" (lovely keyboards), and the quirky, sometimes funky, "Jericho Falls". For inspiration, a sax rises in the euro AOR of "Second Chance", a very nice touch.á
Coastland Ride balance the album with more rocking tunes such as "Made Up My Mind" and the finale "Nail Me To The Cross", whilst opener "Act Of Faith (One Million Reasons)" and the semi-ballad "Sandra" are Melodic Rock oriented.

Coastland Ride is one of the finest acts out there cleverly mixing light Melodious Rock high on harmony, melody and accessible friendliness with a classy AOR / West Coast sound revisiting the '80s.
Few do it better than the Scandinavians, and Coastland Ride are one of these.
