First time I listen a CD from this band and I very quickly like the peace and quiet feeling that emerges from their music. People looking for double bass/guitar attacks should look somewere else as Emerald Rain plays a very calm Hard Rock with good vocals and nice catchy melodies.

I'd say that the band haven't invented anything here, and the songs sound like things we might have heard somewhere else, but at least they sound very good and that's enough for me. I also enjoy having an album I can put in the back to put my mind at ease and relax, not taking care of which track I should skip as they're all good. This is typically the kind of CD I enjoy playing in the back while I'm working on something, it is emotioned packed and quite catchy, with nice vocals and good guitar parts (although simple), but always enjoyable (both riffs and solos). The only thing missing would be a killer track or two as most of the songs are the same (good but maybe too identical sometimes). Last but not least nice artcover (very cool logo symbol) and a very nice production which fits the music like a glove.

Emerald Rain is a nice band that despite originality, delivers a pretty good Hard Rock album, the kind of CD you can put anywhere and in every company. For fans of catchy Hard Rock à la Firehouse or Honeymoon Suite (but without the killer titles). Keep up the good work !

Killing Songs :
They are all good songs.
