Band : Player
Album title : Addiction
Label : Frontiers Records
Distributor : Rough Trade Benelux - Tone
Release Date : 27/04/2012
Release : EP - CD

If you were around in the seventies, you might know this band.  I however do not recall ever having heard anything from these guys before.

It seems they have reformed though, and are working on new material.  To give us a tasting they’ve released this EP, containing 2 new track, and a re-recorded version of their 1978 US charts hit ‘Baby Come Back’.

The opening track ‘My addiction’ is rather weak, but the next track ‘Too Many Reasons’ is a nice AOR track.  The re-recorded version of ‘Baby Come Back’ isn’t too bad either.
Let’s say that if the other material they’re working on is in a similar style as ‘Too Many Reasons’ the album, if it ever is released, might not be too bad, if you’re into softer rock, in a style similar to Chicago.

70/100
