An album that thrills, excites and impresses in just the same way as their debut a quarter of a century ago.

Though they were, at the time, one of the lesser-known bands to get swept away by the Grunge implosion that temporarily destroyed Rock music, it's proof of their amazing talent and dedication that Tyketto are still consistently touring and drawing in ever more impressive crowds. Exactly twenty-five years after their wonderful and enduring debut 'Don't Come Easy' was unleashed on the world comes album number five, and only the fourth to feature the astounding vocals of one Danny Vaughn.

It matters nothing that Tyketto are now three-fifths English; in fact, it's the addition of guitarist Chris Green (Furyon/Pride), keyboardist Ged Rylands (Rage Of Angels) and bassist Chris Childs (Thunder) that have given the original nucleus of Vaughn and drummer Michael Clayton Arbeeny the impetus to � finally � capture the magic of their live performances and deliver their finest album since that debut... and one so impressive it could even surpass it!

For sure, the album is less instant than its predecessors, but ultimately one that is so rewarding. 'Reach' accommodates some of the hardest and heaviest material the band has recorded to date, while retaining an abundance of the more commercial numbers that highlight the impeccable vocal harmonies and signature Tyketto dynamic � where the electric and acoustic guitars blend seamlessly together � as well as adding three exquisitely arranged emotional ballads. I've long been an admirer of Green, so his addition is an added bonus; his scintillating guitar work dominates throughout and appears to have motivated everybody else � I've never heard Arbeeny sound so invigorated while the peerless vocals of Vaughn are as compelling as ever.

Word limits prevent me providing a comprehensive analysis of each song. To highlight a select few and demonstrate a particular bias towards them would be an impossible task. Needless to say I have my favourites; there are twelve of them... I have no doubt that you will discover your own.
At the time of writing the album sat at Number 2 on the Amazon Rock chart on pre-orders alone, a whole six weeks before the official release. It's an astonishing achievement and one that bodes well for the future; exciting times could be ahead for a band that are finally getting the recognition they truly deserve. Twenty-five years on, Tyketto have delivered an album that thrills, excites and impresses in just the same way as their debut a quarter of a century ago.
