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.Read more ›
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
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.Read more ›
