'Call The Nation' is certainly calling all of us citizens of the nation of pure Rock home, and it's a call that we should certainly heed.

Okay! Where am I!? Oh yeah ... it's 1979, and I'm driving down the highway at sunset listening to real FM Radio and listening to some real Rock with 'I Can't Change', the sparkling new song from Gin Lady. Wait a minute; isn't GL a band from Sweden? Yup, and it's 2016, is it not? Most certainly, and 'Call The Nation' is this five-piece band's latest. Right again! The opening track '...Change', and every song after on this record takes you back to the greatest musical decade of all; the seventies era of Hard Rock, the most prolific period in recent musical history!

GL are the real thing; great Rock and Blues, with a hardened edge. These five young men are rooted, and rooted deeply, in the traditions which have made this music great! Guitars, bass, drums and keyboards; instruments that constantly texture great songs, and GL do so masterfully. Yes, every performance will take you back, but with a fully-fledged modern sensibility. The licks, harmonies, and back-beats will spur you to just keep dancing, raising your fist in the air, and reaching for that lighter, getting ready for the encore. This whole album mesmerises, and Magnus Karnebro's vocals bring forth the authenticity of each performance, keeping their passionate flame burning brighter and longer. Klas Holmgren's keyboard talents mesh ever so perfectly with the stringed flourishes of Joakim Karlsson, while continually driving the energy of each song is Fredrik Normark on drums and bassist Anthon Johansson.

These five are also true live musicians. They record off the floor; it's a pure sonic pleasure hearing real drums and the nuances of electric guitar filling the atmosphere. Each instrument bristling, each member Rocking out like there is no tomorrow. From the opening track, on through to the closing chords of 'I'm Coming Home', every song is an FM wonder; if only we had real FM Radio again!

Gin Lady's 'Call The Nation' is certainly calling all of us citizens of the nation of pure Rock home, and it's a call that we should certainly heed!
