Taste – We Are Back [2018]

It has been almost six years since Taste turned the melodic rock/AOR world up-side down with the release of their self-titled debut album. The Swedish duo consisting of brothers Christoffer and Felix Borg (ex-Art Nation) returned with a brand-new album “We Are Back”, an album contain twelve authentic and pure 80s AOR tunes that all the fans will enjoy.

Taste play keyboard-guitar driven melodic rock/AOR with a fair amount of pomp induced in the arrangements/performances. Interestingly enough the keyboards add the basic harmonies on each song topped by the guitars which perform the melodic themes. We are definitely looking at a great start to finish album with “We Are Back” which is exactly what a fan who enjoyed their debut would demand from the group. Each and every song is filled with incredible melodies and choruses while the lyrics, for the biggest part, explore the subject of romance. Harmonious keyboards, substantial melodic guitar lines and fulfilling rhythm section. The album is a real joy to play over and over, thanks to the solid song-writing and straight-to-the-point performances.

The opening track “We Are Back” a melodic rock opus at its own right, the keyboard-driven “Our Dream”, the rockin’ “Danger Games” and the ballad “Cry for Love” are some of the best moments of this effort. Overall, “We Are back” is an inescapable buy for anyone who enjoyed the Taste debut, it seems that most fans of the genre can not get enough of Taste and “We Are Back” is the perfect means to keep one going in anticipation of their second album.
