2009's Perfect Insanity is the ninth studio album from German melodic rockers Jaded Heart. It's also the third album to feature vocalist Johan Fahlberg, who took over for Michael Bormann. I initially wrote Jaded Heart off when Bormann split, but this has become one of those splits (Pink Cream 69 and Angra/Shaman are others) where it turns out to be a good move for all parties. Bormann has released some impressive work, both as a solo artist as well as with bands like The Trophy, and Jaded Heart has released a string of very strong albums.

Over the course of the last three albums, Jaded Heart has developed a heavier, somewhat darker sound that is rapidly approaching metal territory. We're getting to the point where the band's peers are no longer Bonfire and Fair Warning, but harder-hitting bands like Pink Cream 69, At Vance, Starbreaker and Jorn. Sure the band can still put together a love song or two, but now they are songs like the muscular opening track "Love Is a Killer" and the Judas Priest-sounding "Psycho Kiss." The rest of the album has a darker bent, like the gladiatorial "Tonight" (as in "tonight we dine in hell") and "Hell Just Arrived," which is almost too melodic for its lyrics. Subject matter aside, the album is an incredibly hard-hitting (yet still melodic) affair with wicked guitar hooks, heavy rhythms and an absolutely first rate vocal performance. Yes, Michael Bormann is probably the better singer, but Fahlberg is a great fit for this band and their new direction.

Perfect Insanity also benefits from the considerable production/engineering/mixing talents of not one, but three industry veterans - Michael Voss (ex-Mad Max), Chris Lausmann (ex-Bonfire) and Dennis Ward (Pink Cream 69).

Amongst their fanatic supporters, "Jaded Heart" is recognized as the German hard rock outfit born in the early 90s which demonstrated the will to succeed during the unforgiving `grunge' era.
"Perfect Insanity" is the 3rd album featuring Johan Fahlberg on lead vocals. I hope you agree that there is no point in comparing this with the iconic "Jaded Heart" albums of the Michael Bormann era since:
a) their new direction is much more `metal' than the original hard rock lineup.
b) Their earliest works are considered by many as classics while their latest albums are too recent to say whether they stand the test of time.

So in comparison to the previous two albums "Perfect Insanity" is equally dynamic as "Sinister Mind" (2007) with the characteristic double bass drums, speedy riffs and no shortage of solos. Also guitarist Peter Ostros exercises his creativity and style to a far greater extent than on the previous album (you will find quite a few neoclassical scales on this). However Jaded Heart's new album lacks that standout key track that most albums feature; for example "Sinister Mind" had "See the light" while "Helluva Time" (2005) had "Paid my dues". On this one however the band has managed to remain consistent from start to finish with songs like "Freedom call" and "Rising" being probably the most representative examples.

It has to be said that "Perfect Insanity" does not take the band any further sound wise as the material is very much in line with the previous album, which I suppose is a good thing as it proves that (the new) 'Jaded Heart' have found their own sound. So if you enjoyed "Sinister mind" you will probably be pleased to know that "Perfect insanity" is crafted from the same formula.

After reading about these guys on Melodic Hardrock, which, made them sound like they were pretty much the second coming, I splurged here, got caught up in the moment. My Bad! Won't do that again. If you like your rock with a little bit of edge and roll, these guys are for you. If like it with a lot of edge with a big balls kind of roll, avoid these guys. These guys are good at what they do, good players, just not my pint of Guinness.
