Format: Audio CD
Behind the Wire is the third release from Chariot, one of the bands that emerged at the tail end of the legendary New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) movement. Behind the Wire comes more than 20 years after the band's second album (1985's Buring Ambition). Three albums over a quarter-century isn't a great track record, but singer/guitarist Pete Franklin hasn't exactly been idle. He launched another band - Dirty Deeds - that was active through most of the `90s, touring with Iron Maiden and releasing three albums. Now Franklin is back with most of the classic Chariot lineup plus new guitarist Paul Lane.

Well, it's 25 years later and guess what? Chariot in 2010 still sounds a lot like the old Chariot. Sure, the production is better (it would almost have to be) and the musicianship and songwriting are tighter (you'd expect that), but the essential Chariot sound is definitely in place. Speedy, distinctly British, hard rock plus just enough metallic heaviness, a measure of groove, and plenty of melody. Plus of course Franklin's steady midrange vocals. There's something to be said for a metal vocalist that doesn't rely on piercing screams to get his point across. The second I heard Franklin's voice it felt like an authentic Chariot album.

There are no real surprises here, and you can decide for yourself whether that's a good thing or not. You could argue that these NWOBHM era bands have earned the right to make predictable albums as long as they keep us rocking, and with hard-charging songs like "Feel That Rush," "Behind the Wire" and "Shut It Out" that's exactly what Chariot does.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Carmarthen on July 24, 2008
Format: Audio CD
British rockers Chariot, led by Pete Franklin, released two acclaimed "underground" gems in the eighties, WARRIOR and BURNING AMBITION. Bothe were equally good, but totally dated since day one of their release. Both were rooted totally in the NWOBHM, but were released in 1987...

Now, after 20 yeasrs, they release their third album. The sound is ok, production decent, there is a modern edge, but, in almost every sense, it's pedestrian. New solo guitarist Paul Lune is moderately skilled, but his pentatonic scales are so obvious that they will annoy even the most basic and beginner guitar player or experienced rock listener.

Franklin's vocals are still great. They are almost common, not even near any level of greatness, but there's something there that just grabs you by the throat. Maybe is the attitude, the confidence he puts in singing over that pile of mediocre songs, I don't know.

But at your own risk if you don't know the band. If you liked their others albums, this one will not disappoint you.
