A Rocktopia user review written by Speedy Hicks.

Anything with the “Dare” name attached to it is generally something from the top draw and guess what?
“Arc of The Dawn” is no exception. What a wonderful heart felt opener “Dublin” is, sang with such passion
from main man Darren Wharton this turns the hairs on your neck with its Irish tones and textured guitar
work. Another track that needs special mention is the haunting “King of Spades” with more great vocals and
layered guitar one of many highlights. One thing that did take me by surprise is the reworking of Lizzy’s
“Emerald” usually this would be a no no as the legacy should be left alone but on this occasion all is forgiven
due to the respect shown in this slowed down semi acoustic version which I hasten to add has the best guitar
solo on the whole album from Richard Dews a brave move indeed but this version sits nicely alongside the
other 11 tracks. The effort and thought that has gone into this album and all the songs is one that the group
should be proud of, “Kiss The Rain” and “Shelter In The Storm” again highlight the songwriting abilities
of Dare with a patriotic nod to all things Ireland running through the core of this well produced and executed
album.
