Editorial Reviews

Jorn is the band built around Norwegian vocalist extraordinaire Jorn Lande. Jorn is probably best known as the frontman for the German metal act MASTERPLAN. He has also performed and recorded with the likes of Yngwie Malmsteen, Ark, Don Airy (Ozzy Osbourne, Rainbow, Deep Purple), Uli John Roth (Scorpions), Russell Allen (Symphony X), Ken Hensley (Uriah Heep) and Ayreon.

Lonely Are the Brave is Jorn s 5th solo release and is packed with a barrage of 9 hard-rocking melodic metal that perfectly showcases his incredible talent and vocal range.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jorn retains the high standards of his work July 3, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is the 5th studio release from Norwegian vocalist Jorn Lande. He is often compared to David Coverdale and Ronnie James Dio due to his range and vocal styles/techniques he consciously incorporates from these rock masters. "Lonely are the Brave" is a fairly good effort which gives Jorn the opportunity to uncover a great deal of his vocal talent.
Jorn's solo works were always supported by fine production but this time things are levitated to the next stage. The sound is clearer than ever with accurate sustain which manages to shine perfectly through a descent stereo system. The more you crank up the volume the more you realize what a grandiose production this is.

Composition wise, this release unfortunately does not stand as Jorn's best solo work; There are indeed what could be called standout tracks, such as the title track and "Night City" (where Jorn performs the most accurate imitation of the Dio style one could hear) but none of these could be compared to hard rock milestones such as "Christine" and AOR classics like "Bridges will Burn" that Jorn offered us in the past.

Buying this album as any other from his back catalogue will not disappoint as we unquestionably get value for money. But if one is to be fair, it must be said that Jorn still has not made that perfect, start to finish, album the fans have been expecting.

"Rock Hard" Greek magazine (issue 33) marks this album with 8/10 commenting: "Jorn has found the way of constantly coming up with very good albums"

5.0 out of 5 stars more metal than rock, just the way i like it March 16, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
if you are like me, a true metal head, then you will truly get a kick out of this album. night city sounds like it was pulled right out of ronnie james dio,s brain. its like someone went back in time to the late eighties or early 90,s and stole it from his little black book of song ideas. all you fans that lean more to the rock side than the metal side will most likely love songs like the title track and war of the world. you people that still mostly listen to old whitesnake and mostly aor type bands.but for the more metal oriented fan, and i mean those of you like me that are addicted to bands like primal fear, running wild, helloween and so on, well those of you will bust a nut when you hear the song titled PROMISES. this is the most fist pumping head banging anthem to come out in a long time. i cant stop playing this song, you can not play this without singing along. a song like this puts me in a good mood if im depressed, it gets me ready for another day at work, and it makes me proud to crank it at public places for all to hear, no cheese factor, just pure amazing quality metal. in fact i challenge you to not like this song. the inner road is a great song with killer guitar riffing as well, this is a diverse album where some songs are so good that the rest , even though good themselve will most likely be skipped often to reach these above mentioned anthems. by the way, coverdale this is not, quit comparing jorn to coverdale. jorn has a voice all his own, the dio influence is the one i hear the most. but anyway, i would put this type style of music in the same list as axel rudi pell, early pink cream 69 or early pretty maids(lethal heros) with some strong dio influences. dont pass this up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jorn's best solo album to date November 26, 2008
Format:Audio CD
2008's Lonely are the Brave is album number five from Norwegian melodic rock supervocalist Jorn Lande (ex-Ark, Masterplan, Millenium, and too many other bands to count). It's also arguably his best album to date. It's abundantly clear listening to Jorn sing that he was influenced by David Coverdale and Ronnie James Dio, and with Lonely are the Brave Jorn has written the ultimate tribute to those metal icons.

This is, for lack of a better term, the best Dio album written since Dream Evil. If Ronnie James Dio had written an album in 1985 for David Coverdale to sing, I think it would sound exactly like Lonely are the Brave. Hell, I'm halfway convinced that Dio did write "Night City" and forgot to record it himself. And Jorn belting out "look for the answer" at the end of "War of the World" is so Heaven and Hell it's not funny. Beyond the strong Dio vibe, the album really gets to the heart of Jorn's style and how he sees his role. The title track, in addition to being an absolutely perfect melodic hard rock anthem, is practically a mission statement and is probably the best song Jorn has ever written.

My only complaint with Lonely are the Brave is its relatively short length. It includes just nine songs and clocks in at roughly 45 minutes. On the flip side, there is not a single song on this album that remotely qualifies as filler, and you're definitely left wanting more.

Lonely are the Brave is a must have for Jorn fans, and will blow away just about anyone who still loves the classic melodic rock and metal sound. Fans of Dio and Whitesnake in particular should absolutely love it. There's still a month to go in 2008, but Lonely are the Brave is already sitting at the top of my Top 10 list for the year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic hard rock album February 20, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was my third Jorn solo purchase, working backwards from the Dio tribute and Spirit Black. I agree with the other reviewer who stated it isn't as catchy as some of his other solo efforts. As a result, I didn't like it as much as either of my first two purchases. At first. After acquiring the rest of Jorn's solo catalog, however, Lonely are the Brave has become my favorite of his solo releases. It started with the chorus of the title track getting stuck in my head, and then I found myself humming the intro guitar part of "War of the World." Before I knew it, whenever I was in a Jorn kind of mood, this album became my go-to album. In short, this has become not only my favorite Jorn album, but one of my favorite albums, period.

When I found out there were three bonus tracks on a couple of different editions, I knew I had to have them. The Limited Edition has "Stormbringer," a blistering cover of the Deep Purple song, and "Stone in Water". The Japanese edition has "Showdown," a slower, quieter song that Jorn originally recorded with The Snakes back in 1998. Put all together, this makes for an extended 12-song version on my iPod. And more is always a good thing.
