Daniel Trigger - Right Turn (2018)

from various sources:

"Right Turn" is the new album from singer / songwriter DANIEL TRIGGER, an indie artist who has been releasing several records since 2005, plus albums under the Trigger name. We have listened to some of them but his overall heavy rock style never convinced us.

However, things are changing with "Right Turn". I can see why the album will be released by MelodicRock Records soon; this material is inspired by the classic Melodic Rock sound from the '80s.

One thing that will surprise the listener is that Daniel hails from the Midlands in the UK and not the US as the music on here would suggest.

Bringing to mind Mitch Malloy (in his early years), Johnny Lima and late '80s Bon Jovi, Daniel Trigger knows his way around a melodic tune and chorus.

Lyrically he harks back to the glory days of melodic rock on ‘Days Gone By’. ‘Drive’ is a tune made for just that – top down on the car (or windows for most of us) with this melodic rock gem blasting out on the speakers.

There's a clear Malloy feeling in the classy melodic rock pattern of 'Running Into The Wind', with its rip roaring piano riff including acoustic guitar into the mix but used as 'electric' riffage.

Midtempo 'Hold Back The Night' brings to mind Bon Jovi's New Jersey era, really 'American' in its delivery, 'Heavy Heart' has a catchy, pure '80s melodic rock chorus, while we have a classic rock vibe on the fun ‘Rock N Roll Party’.

The only ballad here, ‘There In Your Heart’, bring to mind Jon Bon Jovi solo album, or better Johnny Lima, as Trigger's voice is very similar to them.

If you have listened to some of Daniel Trigger previous albums, forget 'em, he has 'turned' timeless melodic rock here on the properly titled "Right Turn".

There's sweet melodious vocals, catchy choruses, a warm production, and while Daniel performs all instruments, he was cleverly enough to bring a very good guitar player in Jay Maddison to provide the clean solos and round up very entertaining songs.

Daniel Trigger will be a new name to many and he is worth listening to based on the melodic rock delights he has provided here.

Highly Recommended

    • Just wondering why you choose a couple songs from an album, and not all the good songs from an album. Also, I see you picking one album from a band that falls in that timeframe, and not all the albums. How comprehensive do you want this playlist?  Anyway, I see you have nothing from Transit, so you should add some from them. I know their albums are on the Spotifies. Also, I wasn't aware the Brunette demos were on there, so that's good to know. 
    • This is hilarious, and finally seeing one of these phony liberal pussys getting whats so coming to them. Blaming it on Trump supporters. LOL love it    
    • HA HA HA I FUCKING LOVE IT MAN!!  
    • These are a few more I just heard off my cassette tapes my step dad gave me, quit a bizarre mix of music, though all stands in the Pop/Hi-Tech/AOR/Rock field, but really is all over the road as far as being specific, I will remind you, these are all bands and songs I have never heard of, or heard ever before, so I'm sure there will be bands you have all heard, and I'm just a fucking idiot, and my musical knowledge is a 2 on a 10 scale, none of these are off my you tube channel, I haven't had the chance to record a lot of the tapes onto my computer yet, so I am going with the ones I could already find on You Tube, which there aren't many, the 1st one is off a soundtrack from a movie I think I saw in like 1st  grade called The Sluggers Wife, it was sang by Rebecca De Mornay, who was also in the movie(the hot bitch from Risky Business) it's an extremely plain and simple pop song, like most pop songs, but for whatever reason, I'm a fan of brainless pop songs, especially when sung by females, and from the 80's, so I'm just including it on the off chance any of you are fags like I am, and like cheesy pop songs, the rest are just bands I never heard of, and dug the shit I heard on these tapes, I'll try and get all the bands that weren't on YouTube uploaded and put on here, shit takes time.     Never even heard of this dude, but i didnt hear a bad song on the whole tape, i gotta look into this guy, I might be a huge fan.              
    • Oh WORD? Where the hell did this come from?! Great stuff!
    • Goodness me, the man is back with a bang!      
    • Good stuff that's what I'd hoped for..liked the last cd quite a bit.
