Editorial Reviews

The key element to the success of W.E.T was to create a modern Melodic Hard Rock sounding opus while pushing the genre into the future, with powerhouse rhythms and toop notch production making it an equally classic and contemporary release.

Preceded by the release of the single/video Learn to Live Again, an unbelievably radio-friendly song, which features for the first time a vocal duet between Martensson and Soto - the new album Rise Up again has a massive production and equally impressive songwriting, which takes the term classic rock into the new century.

4.0 out of 5 stars Round two from the wonder band of melodic rock! March 13, 2013
By Michael
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The second album from W.E.T. is another very good example of quality modern melodic rock that will easily please fans without breaking any new ground. Featuring the talents of Jeff Scott Soto on vocals with Erik Martensson and Robert Sall from Eclipse and Work Of Art respectively, W.E.T. continues along their path of hard hitting rockers mixed with big power ballads backed up by fellow musicians Robban Bäck and Magnus Henriksson from Eclipse. Nothing involving these musicians is ever going to be bad but the sound of the album is slightly formulaic when taken in context of all the other albums Erik Martensson has worked on recently. One slight negative point for me is the loud harsh sound of the album that I feel lacks breathing room for all the instruments and which makes it difficult to listen to the music for long periods. Highlights include the melodic opener "Walk Away", the massive chorus of "Learn To Live Again", the modern rock sound of "Rise Up" that has a Linkin Park vibe to it, the passionate power ballad "Love Heals", the awesome main riff of "On The Run", the killer commercial rock chorus of "Broken Wings", and the second intense power ballad "Still Believe In Us" that showcases JSS at his best. I should mention that the massive backing vocals throughout this album are very impressive and used at great moments for maximum impact. Despite the fact that Rise Up doesn't surpass the amazing heights of the debut album, it is still going to please most fans of this style of music without becoming a classic album of the genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Melodic rock perfection November 26, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Melodic rock supergroup W.E.T., which features Robert Sall (Work of Art), Erik Martenssen (Eclipse) and Jeff Scott Soto (Talisman and about a million other projects), is back with their second album, titled Rise Up. Given how impressive the 2009 W.E.T. debut was, expectations were very high for Rise Up, and the band definitely delivered.

Like the W.E.T. debut, Rise Up is an upbeat melodic rock album with huge melodies, catchy hooks and amazing vocals. Soto is obviously the lead vocalist, but having Sall and Martenssen on backing vocals makes a good thing even better. Actually, it would be cool to see them take the lead on a track or two. The songwriting is top-notch, with Martenssen playing a big part and delivering songs on par with his best Eclipse work (which is saying something). "Broken Wings," "The Moment," "Walk Away" and especially the title track stand out, but the whole thing is fantastic.

Rise Up is another first class melodic rock album from W.E.T., and a definite contender for best melodic rock album of 2013 (maybe the best, depending on whether you consider Pretty Maids rock or metal). If you liked the first one, you'll love this. And if you like any of the players involved, especially Eclipse, Rise Up is a must-have release.

PS - I had the good fortune of catching W.E.T. live at this year's Melodic Rock Fest 3 event. They were as incredible as you might expect, and even worked a couple of Talisman hits in their set.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic album! March 21, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Listen it's pretty cut and dried, If you thought the first W.E.T. album was good or even great as I did this ones better! We finally get to hear Eric Martensons fantastic voice and a perfect match with JSS. I could not be more pleased with every aspect of this album, from the song writing to the excellent guitar work to the great hooks, you will love this album if youliked the first one, period.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Band Effort the Second Time Around April 5, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Jeff Scott Soto mentioned that he came into to the studio to replace the scratch lead vocals on the first W.E.T. project.
"Let's bring the best out of 3 Swedish Bands together," the record company said.
The first project became a love fest for all involved---enough for them to consider a second go-around, but this time, writing and arranging all the songs together like a real band would do!
BOTH the first project and "Rise Up" are worthy of your attention! Good stuff!
