Although the band still exists. John Snels on drums and Jan Bijlsma on bass are doing fine without excelling. Noteworthy however is the interplay between guitar players Jan Somers who passed away unexpectedly in and Lucassen.
Somers' style is groovy, bluesy, swinging and at lightning speed when needed. Together with the more neo classical approach of Lucassen this tandem guarantees pyrotechnics on a high The Best Gunfighter In Town - Vengeance - Arabiavery exciting, albeit not sounding original or ground breaking.
But this is exactly the character of this album: it's aim is not to experiment, deviate or to challenge existing formulae. Arabia is an exciting, entertaining and compelling quality album, full of memorable riffs and sing along choruses alluding to the American audience. The production is crystal clear and sounds very professional. Yes, I even think that album cover art, band logo style etc.
So, how about the songs? The album's title track Arabia transcends all expectations one might have. It's a powerful, epic track with -naturally- oriental melody lines, betraying Deep Purple and Rainbow Stargazer! The guitar solo particularly is very Blackmoresque. The The Best Gunfighter In Town - Vengeance - Arabia is thick, heavy and controlled, keeping the right balance between commerciality and honesty.
