This new release is pretty good. It is better than the last , but not as good as a few of the older ones like Downburst. Good singing and nice musicianship. Some keyboards give the music nice texture. My only issue is that the songs seem a little slower than I would have liked. The CD seems a little plodding. If you are Brainstorm fan you will like this one.

Long running, hard-hitting German power metal band Brainstorm returned in 2011 with their ninth studio album, titled On the Spur of the Moment. With a sound that focused more on the headbanging heavy metal side of power metal than the sing-song hyper-melodic focus of some of their peers (looking in your direction, Freedom Call), Brainstorm has always been one of the more exciting bands in the German power metal scene, but their last couple of albums didn't thrill a lot of their fanbase.

Downburst and Memorial Roots were both totally solid albums, but they didn't have the same energy as Brainstorm's essential Soul Temptation and Liquid Monster releases. There was a sense that the band was just treading water to some extent. You definitely don't get that sense with On the Spur of the Moment, which grabs you by the throat from the opening seconds of leadoff single "Below the Line" and never lets up until the final song ends. Maybe it's that the rhythms are heavier, or that the melodies are more infectious, or that Andy Franck - now free from his commitment to side band Symphorce - is singing with renewed vigor and jaw-dropping power, but there's just an incredible energy to this album. The songs on Memorial Roots were enjoyable while the disc was spinning and forgotten once it stopped.

I agree with the previous reviewer that the production kills this!!!!...Death Magnetic X 10...horrible....compressed beyond imagination! Let's not lose the loudness war...bring back highs and lows...it's called dynamics..it makes music BETTER! As far as the songs go...they're good....not great but i can't get passed the production flaws so my judgement may be cloudy at best. Please remix and re-release
