Editorial Reviews

2010 album from the Melodic Rock twins, Matthew and Gunnar Nelson. Twenty years after their #1 hit '(Can't Live Without Your) Love and Affection', the duo releases Lightning Strikes Twice. This record goes straight back to the absolute brilliance of Nelson's debut album, hence the title and an amazing set of songs that are going to restore faith in Nelson.

Format:Audio CD
Melodic rock/glam metal band `Nelson' was one of the last acts of the genre to reach mainstream success with the release of their debut "After the Rain" in 1990. It seems that `Frontiers records' have made it their business to recruit each and every quality melodic rock/ hard rock act of the 80s and 90s while effectively directing them to recapture their original sound. For "Nelson- Lightning strikes twice" this is definitely the case, as the twins Gunnar and Matthew Nelson have written, recorded and produced an album comparable to the artistic quality and musical direction of their platinum debut.

Sound-wise the album includes all musical elements `Nelson' have been renowned for: Acoustic guitars, topped by incredible electric guitar leads, lengthy choruses and challenging vocal lines plus discrete yet inventive rhythm section. One has to comment that `Lightning strikes twice' is amongst the most rocking albums the `Nelson' team has produced while it also demonstrates incredible depth in terms of arrangements; particularly regarding the bonding of acoustic with electric instruments and the appropriate placement of instrumental melodies that give each song its distinct flavor.

Having previously experienced the abilities of the `Nelson' brothers, I did expect powerful melodic rockers like "You're all I need tonight" and "How can I miss you", still I never thought of the guys pushing their artistic boundaries and writing "How can I miss you" which is an undeniable AOR masterpiece. One could not possibly describe what the song is like, yet I can admit that it made me consider how much the Nelsons have matured in terms of composing and arranging music, baring in mind they were already amazing to being with.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice to have you back gentlemen! December 8, 2010
By R. Zall
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
So I downloaded the new "Lightning Strikes Twice" today and was pleasantly rewarded with a solid 58+ minutes of great melodic rock. Good writing, great hooks and the harmonies that make you remember why you liked them in the first place 20 years ago. This is not a nostalgia act or record by any means. It will hold up to todays standards if you like artists who can really play and sing. The guys have a website that really says it all....Nelson Kicks A**.com I wholeheartedly agree!

5.0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTELY ADORE THIS CD!!!!!!!! January 6, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I am a HUGE Nelson fan - and have seen them live several times. They are probably my favorite band. I was so looking forward to the release of this CD, and it did not disappoint. As a matter of fact, as I sit here writing this review, I am listening to the CD. READY WILLING AND ABLE ...

My favorite songs are: CALL, HOW CAN I MISS YOU, TO GET BACK TO YOU, KEEP KICKIN' MY HEART AROUND. And the bonus track is a remix of MORE THAN EVER. So diggin' it.

If you don't have this CD, you NEED this CD. The guitars are wonderfully orchastrated, the voices are clear and soaring, the lyrics are ingenious. You can hear the influence of Queen, Bon Jovi and Boston - and that aint so bad.

Do not wait. If you're reading this review, click and add this wonderful work of art to your cart. And then write your own 5-star review.... ;D

5.0 out of 5 stars As always, a MUST HAVE March 5, 2011
Format:Audio CD
If you're an 80s/90s lover, or grew up then like I did, I'll bet you can still remember the first time you heard that perky opening guitar riff to Love and Affection. I know I can!

The definitive Nelson sound is BACK and better! It's really great to hear how Matthew & Gunnar have progressed as writers, musicians and artists. There's a good variety of material on this CD - kind of a "something for everyone" - and it shows what a great place they are at in their lives. It really comes across as a celebration of all things late 80s/early 90s. This CD is meant to be a seamless continuation of After the Rain, and it accomplishes this with very high marks.

I've been a fan since their debut, and there are indeed some new fans out there. To them, and to those who don't know, I would highly advise buying this CD. The songs are catchy, yet venture into some new territory. It's enough on the edge to keep it current, but enough "back in the day" to make you smile.

I've met the guys a few times, and I will say, as a musician, I love their material, and especially their attention to detail. That's what's always made all the difference to me personally. If someone does not care enough to build their project solidly, why should the average person take time to listen? These guys have it down. I don't think you will find one act as solid as Nelson. They are wonderfully produced, sure but still, overly-talented individuals. These guys are a definite "10" in my book. If they had no studio effects or any enhancements of any sort, I'd still pay money to hear them play. Their musical abilities would parallel if not beat any highly paid session player anywhere. Their vocals are unmatched by anyone, except the other one of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best CD I've ever purchased December 18, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love music, but have often been disappointed when purchasing a CD by finding that the song I purchased it for was one of the few good songs on the CD. Not so with this CD. Every song on it is fantastic. There is a great mixture of songs, and Gunnar Nelson's voice is outstanding. The vocal harmony and the blend of the instruments are perfect. Couldn't be happier. It rocks. A++++++
