Editorial Reviews

Somewhere In America is the sophomore release from Austria's Cornerstone (AT). Melodic, upbeat, and modern sounding with a nod-to the band's love of 80's music, best describes this album. With Cornerstone's music being featured in films, rave press reviews and the band's extensive touring schedule throughout Europe and the US, 2011 should be the year Cornerstone (AT) becomes a houshold name.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong and soulful melodic rock with female vocals December 8, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
Just to clarify, this is not the now-dormant Danish band Cornerstone that featured Doogie White and Steen Mogensen. This Cornerstone is an Austrian band that plays a brand of melodic rock that's somewhere between AOR and alternative rock. The band returned in 2011 with Somewhere in America, the follow-up to their very impressive 2008 debut Head Over Heels.

Cornerstone has such an interesting sound. They've got one foot in melodic rock territory, appearing at the 2009 Z Rock Festival alongside AOR mainstays like John Waite and and Ted Poley, but they'd also be right at home on college radio. There's a lot to Cornerstone's sound that's reminiscent of the `90s alternative bands like Belly and Throwing Muses, but they also recall The Pretenders and even 10,000 Maniacs at times.

Somewhere in America (a title inspired by their brief US tour, perhaps?) continues along the same path as Head Over Heels, though there's one very noticeable change. Previous vocalist Anja Schirmer has been replaced by Patricia Hillinger. Hillinger's voice is similar to Schirmer's, though perhaps a bit deeper and more soulful, which is definitely a plus given the personal and emotional nature of the lyrics. The album shifts from alternative ("Breathing for You") to commercial ("Right or Wrong") and back, but the gorgeous melodies and sheer emotion running throughout gives Somewhere in America a cohesive atmosphere that's easy to relate to and hard to resist.

If you're one of the lucky few who picked up Cornerstone's debut, you will not be disappointed by Somewhere in America at all. If you're new to the band, but have an appreciation for melodic rock and an open mind, Cornerstone should prove a very pleasant surprise.
