ROBIN BECK Livin' On A Dream Frontiers Records (2007)

Robin Beck

Best known for her smash hit 'First Time' off the back of a Coca Cola advert, Beck has had a successful career in the melodic rock field. This time around she has produced a classic album full of melodic delights and huge ballads being helped out by her husband James Christian and a couple of his House of Lords band members.

The title track really gets things off to a flyer, very rocky and listen out for the 'Top of the Pops' intros to her big hit 'First Time'. 'Always' is Heart's 'Alone' updated and given the Beck touch. The swooping vocals and high notes bring to mind classic 80's Heart. 'Magic' rocks like a mutha and is easily the heaviest track she has done so far.

James Christian adds his backing vocals to most songs but takes co-vocals on the heartfelt ballad 'Till The Last Tear Drop Falls'. There won't be a dry eye in the house by the time this gem has finished…

Buy if you're a fan of Robin beck's previous work or love female hard rock a la Heart and Dante Fox. Quite possibly her best album yet.
