Profile Some major label album’s are so good and yet so unkown in the Melodic Rock community. Human for example are never talked about in the well known communities and still they’re playing in the same league with acts like Dan Reed Network, It’s Alive or Jeff Scott Soto with their infectious brand of funk influenced Melodic Hard Rock. Tracks like the riff ladden opener “TheFeelingUGet”, the funky “Got 2 Get U”, “Cum’ On Everybody” or the ultra catchy power ballad “Can’t Stop Loving U” almost sound like a carbon copy of vintage Dan Reed Network with some doses of JSS thrown in for good measure. “Sexuality” on the other hand is another ultra cool piece of funky hardrock which sounds amazlingly close to Prince’s rocking best.

It is clear that the duo consisting of vocalist Mehdi T. and guitarist Olivier C. were strong admirers of Dan Reed Network and Jeff Scott Soto when they recorded these tunes in 1992 which is also strongly reflected in the spelling of some of the song titles. They are backed by some of Germany’s finest studio musicians like the rhythm section of Ken Taylor and drummer Bobo Schopf (MSG). So the overall sound is tight as it gets. If you’re into melodic hard rock with a funky twist and like stuff like Dan Reed Network, Jeff Scott Soto, early Extreme, It’s Alive or the Canadian Wxplorers you will love Human as well.
