I first heard this CD while lying in bed with a stomach upset, but it quickly kicked me out of it - the bed and the trouble!
Giant is so unknown in Germany. I went to the photokina 2000 in Köln and was surprised - Wow, now they have crossed the atlantic!
But the new album should not be so good? I don't know.
I've been testing so many Rock-CDs, Christian, Non-Christian, but then I see: it is the standard. I like XT, Fighters, David Mullen, Whitehearts, Angelica (all christian groups). Once I tested a new album of Scorpions. (Still loving you, Wind of change, Send me an angel are so great with Klaus Meine as a Hard-Rock-Caruso) and I really asked myself, if I like Hard-Rock and if there could be good music. Then I put 'Time to burn' in my player. What a difference. The ballads 'Lost in paradise' and 'Now until forever' even speaks more to my heart then Klaus Meines wonderful sung 'Still loving you.' 'Lost in paradise' has more tension, more sorrow, more feeling.
Yes, this Rock sounds like the 80ties, but isn't that great? I can't hear those heartless 'Soul', Hip-Hop, Rap, Techno any more and good rocksongs have been destroyed by the silly techno beat with weak voices. Some songs are really fast and you can sweat in deep winter while dancing. It's a lot more power than Bryan Adams and Bon Jovi have in the 80ties, not talking of them in the early 90ties. (Then I dropped my interest in their music.)
Real 'Hard'Rock, melodic, sometimes aggressive power, but never trashy...
