Newman - Decade II (2 CD)
NEWMAN apparently is one of the most productive bands out there when it comes to melodic rock. “Aerial“ (2017), the latest studio effort, is still kind of fresh but “Decade II“, a kind of expanded best-of, is already there. It contains a two-disc-set with 17 songs compiled from the last five studio efforts and another 17 unreleased or at least rare songs (e.g. Japanese bonus tracks) taken from that very period. The British band lead by Steve Newman (v/g) plays powerful up-tempo rockers as well as emotional ballads or slightly progressive sounding tracks that have one aspect in common: passion. Additionally, the fact that quality-wise the second disc is as good as the first one points out the great talent showcased in NEWMAN. Strictly limited edition of 1000 copies.
