A new solo release from HARRY HESS the former vocalist/writer of Harem Scarem is coming in late August. The new one is called Living In Yesterday, don't get too excited with the title, it isn't a throw back to the first HS release in 1991, it's modern yet still very melodic...typical Harry Hess.

 

Loved him in HS and his last project First Signal, however I wasn't a big fan of his first solo output...released many moons ago. Like his solo debut this one sounds a bit soft, but let's hope the samples are only samples and not representative of the entire release. I like mid tempo tracks, just not an entire album full of them.

 

Here's hoping for another splendid release from my fellow countryman.

The song 'Living In Yesterday' is sounding like the Eric Martin classic 'Letting It Out' to me.

 

All 4 are sounding very nice though - looking forward to this

I really don't like the chorus of the title track, and it sounds painfully familiar too. But the other 3 songs are utterly superb. Real pure-sounding honest Harry Hess songs. They sound like his song-writing too - is he actually involved this time? I really like how this is shaping up.

Here's Andrew's take:

 

The new Harry Hess solo record is a different beast to that of the debut Hess album Just Another Day. It is a harder hitting record and driven more so by electric guitar than the largely acoustic driven debut. It retains that same Harry Hess/Harem sound we all love and while it is still very much a modern melodic rock album, it still should hold a lot of appeal for old school fans.

The album features a fairly consistent mid-tempo feel with several typically "Hess melancholy" ballads and mid-tempo moody rockers. Basically, any fan of Harem Scarem's Hope, Higher, Human Nature, the debut Hess and the First Signal album will love this. 10 tracks and just under 40 minutes of music - there's no filler in sight.

Highlights: Rockers - Living In Yesterday; Nothing Lasts Forever. Ballads: It's Over, Nowhere To Run.

    • I'm with you and think it might be similar for me. I always loved H.E.A.T with Erik and was pretty much a Kenny basher as I wasn't a fan of those first 2 albums at all.  I had very low expectations and really didn't think I'd care much for new music with Kenny.  Anyways, I've slowly come around on Kenny as the singles were released and I'm enjoying the new album.  Yeah, it's not exciting me quite as much as the Gronwall albums did but Kenny sounds excellent to my ears and I'm having no issues with sound or production.  Just sounds like some good melodic hard rock to me.
    • Yeah, at the moment he's the only option for me here. A few guys I'm not really interested in and although EM was everywhere a few years ago, he definitely appears to have settled down recently. If anything, wouldn't mind seeing his name pop up a little more these days, though it's fine as is. 
    • I've been a bit let down by recent albums but the genuine anticipation I feel for new material from these guys means they must have done something right through the years. Would absolutely love it if they unexpectedly hit another homerun. 
    • Classless Act - Welcome to the Show Out of This World - Out of This World Within Temptation - The Unforgiving  The Black Sorrows - The Chosen Ones Horsehead - Onism i-TEN - Taking a Cold Look (Rock Candy remaster) Touch - Touch (Rock Candy remaster) Spys - Spys/Behind Enemy Lines (Renaissance double album reissue)

    • I have no real opinion on the band's schtick. I do have an opinion on their earlier albums - they contained a lot of good songs. The last few... not so. Hope they can pull something out here but expectations aren't high
