Fireflight "Now" by Kevin Thorson (cmaddict ) on 2012-03-04 10:09:00
Rock heavy hitters Fireflight are back with their next project "Now". This album is packed with mind blowing vocals, massive choruses and deep lyrics. Songs that encourage and have that "never give up" theme. Lead singer Dawn's incredible vocals know no bounds and is bordering on the stratosphere. Especially in track three "Escape" and the title track "Now", her voice is arguably the best female voice in all of rock.
As always, Fireflight brings extremely thoughtful lyrics to this project. They never shy away from the tough subjects, and always offer uplifting lyrics that inspire and ignite hope.
Hefty guitar riffs are ever present on the album yet not all that memorable which is a downside of the album musically. Fireflight hits the mark in every aspect of the album except originality. Besides the incredibly addicting "Prove Me Wrong", nothing really stands out and it left me wanting a little more. A group with this type of resume has very high expectations, maybe too unfairly high. "Now" is still a great release and worth dropping some dough on, just a little more originality was needed to put it over the top.
Amazing vocal arrangements, and carefully crafted lyrics are the standouts of Fireflight's latest creation. "Now" holds its own, and is another great addition to the Fireflight line-up.
