Believe | review

A step in the right direction definitely, if you ask me. The first two numbers prove instantly that the band is on the right track again. They are both good melodic rockers, "Die Off Hard" especially. "Hail,Hail" is a good track too, similar to the better tracks on "VOR", heavy but melodic. "Staying Away", an oldtrack, has been re-recorded with the drummer singing, and quite a good job he does too. I still prefer the old version though.

The instrumental "Baby With A Nail Gun" isn't too bad either, it's more like a realsong than guitar acrobatics. Also worth mentioning are "Victim Of Fate" (great chorus!) and the ballad "Rain". I "Believe" again in Harem Scarem!
