Human Zoo produced one of my favorite releases in 2007; "Over The Horizon", and now, 4 years later they're back with the follow-up "Eyes of the Stranger". This one arrived in my mailbox over the weekend, and I finally got to listen to it this morning, and I really like what I'm hearing so far.

One of the things that impresses me about these guys is how they work the saxophone into their songs; it stands out, but doesn't overpower the rest of the tune (IMO anyway).

 

Check out some of their new tunes for yourself if you haven't already...

Fall in Love

Great album ; one of my faves of the year. Here's my sexy little review-in-summary I did for my own purposes:

 

1 - The answer - Great melodic hard rock opener - 8.5

2 - Gimme your time - another great hard rocker… great riff - 8.5

3 - To the top - another good one - 7.5

4 - Everything changes - beautiful melodic rock - 9

5 - Eyes of the stranger - decent hard rocker - 6.5

6 - Fall in love - good melodic rock - 7.5

7 - World behind you - solid melodic rock - 7

8 - Hold & care - pretty low-key ballad… not as good as others by the band - 6.5

9 - Want it - love it - like it - brilliant riff, great melodic hard rock - 9

10 - Welcome to paradise - good hard rocker - 7.5

11 - 10,000 years ago - great hard rocker - 8

 

- - Total Score of all Songs - 85.5

- - Average Total Percentage of all Songs (%) - 78

- - TOTAL SCORE inc Songs, Vibe, Production etc. (%) - 83

 

Another great release from an ever-reliable band. Solid hard rock from start to end.

Their strongest album up to date. If you like high Quality German MHR this is for you

Big call, mate. I still think their debut is their best album yet, but I do love all three. One of the most consistent (and under-rated) bands in recent years.
