Nazareth - 2xs (2002) Retail CD
After having a run of albums that were very much British hard rock at it's finest, Nazareth realised that their audience was bigger state-side than in Britain. That wasn't to say that our European neighbours had lost interest in the Scottish rockers, in fact in places such as Russia, Norway and Germany they still prove very popular to this day. However Nazareth realised that America could be explored further, and so they released a series of albums with more appeal to our burger munching buddies across the big pond. 2XS is maybe one of the best efforts Nazareth made at becoming moremore… A.O.R, maybe only bettered by the follow up to this album, Sound Elixr.So, out went the majority of bluesy rockers Nazareth was famed for in this part of the world and in came some more melodic rock and ballads in the style of such American giants as Journey and REO Speedwagon. Considering it is a different sound to Nazareth, they pull it off quite well. Tracks such as Love Leads To Madness, You Love Another, Lonely In The Night and Preservation are definate A.O.R tracks that could well have been recorded by the big American middle-of-the-road rock groups. The music has a different and more polished feel to it in these songs. The tracks Games, Dream On and Mexico are ballads. The first two are excellent songs with the distinctive flavour of Nazareth stamped all over them, Dan McCafferty singing both with such great emotion in his voice that you will be swept along in the tide of feeling that the songs provoke. Mexico however is in truth a bit of a weak offering to close the album with and surly Nazareth could have done better with the closing track. Nazareth havn't totally abandoned their bluesy rock roots though, and for you purists out there tracks such as Boys In The Band, Gatecrash, Back To The Trenches and Take The Rap are traditional Nazareth rockers that will please the fans of their own brand of bluesy dirty rock.Whether you will like this album really depends on what you like about Nazareth. If you like your Nazareth songs to be exclusively bluesy rock with the odd ballad thrown in for good measure, then maybe this album won't quite be your cup of tea. If you like melodic Nazareth and enjoy other groups such as Journey, Reo Speedwagon and Toto then you will almost certainly like this album. Whatever your tastes, what can't be disputed is the fact that this album is well written, well produced and well performed. Dan McCafferty shows surprising range in his vocals and the playing ability stands up to anybody out there. Well worth the cost of purchase.
