Stan Bush – Change the World [2017]

Legendary AOR singer/songwriter and melodic rock icon Stan Bush is back with his thirteen-studio album “Change the World” marking his collaboration with L.A. Records/Cargo Records worldwide, a new pinnacle of melodic genius with this powerful album full of exceptionally well-crafted songs.

“Change the World” takes the basis of radio-friendly AOR and induces inventive riffs, melodic guitar lines and flamboyant solos. Keyboards are also a big part of the album, much like the bass, ever-present yet complementary to the overall sound of Stan Bush’s albums rather than driving the songs. Of course, one has to appraise Stan’s vocal performance, bringing to front a powerful and very clean singing style, easily one of his best recordings to date. Clearly the vocal melodies on “Change the World” would prove a challenge for just about any singer, mainly due to their length and quick succession.

The new album is filled with challenging vocal melodies, changes in rhythm patterns and constantly evolving harmonies. No question, the end result is catchy-radio friendly rock, though very organic, baring various twists and turns. From the opening “Change the World”, to its successor “Break These Chains” you know this is going to prove a no-nonsense melodic rock album, vibrant and passionate from the first song to the last. The album also includes “Warrior”, featured in the Shadow Warrior 2 game and the all-time classis Stan Bush songs “The Touch” and “Dare” from Transformers: The Movie, round out this masterpiece of an album.

If you are a fan of FM-rock, melodic rock and adult oriented rock, this album-plus-hits is the ideal purchase of the season.
