Let The Night In (Prime Records & Electromode)
Breakdown: These local rockers have cemented themselves as South African rock royalty. They have just released their new album Let The Night In which sees a bit of a new sound. This is their latest album since the popular Evidence was released back in 2012 and the boys have proven that they still have what it takes no matter how hard hitting their sound is!
Tracks We Didn’t Skip: 10 of the 13.
What I Liked: The album feels a bit lighter than we’re used to but that’s not a bad thing at all! Ross’ voice is incredibly powerful and the whole album is well polished off. Prime Circle don’t just release music, they take note of the music industry around them and adapt their music in order to appeal to as many people as possible. Prime Circle are also known for their live stage presence and I think that this is the perfect music for them to continue dominating the stage.
What I Didn’t Like: I spoke about the album’s lighter feel and I am sure that this will upset more than a few of their fans. I don’t want to use ‘sell-out’ but the boys have strayed away from the sound that has made them famous. Also, it seems many of the songs follow the same recipe which tends to make the album a little bit predictable.
Best Track: Doors is definitely one of my highlights.
