A superb record with the band delivering traditional sounding Melodic Rock at its finest.

"The Fox" have definitely delivered the Melodic Rock goodies with 'Breathless'. I was instantly hooked and now must confess it is bordering addiction. At its core, it has the melodic heart of their debut 'Under Suspicion', the stronger guitar punch of 'The Fire Within' and the superior production of 'Under The Seven Skies'. This concoction combines to make this album their most complete and impressive body of work to date.

It's full of memorable and stirring choruses, driven and melodic guitars and technical keyboard hooks. I am starting to feel personally that this is a modern day Melodic Rock classic. It has everything you want from this genre and it wouldn't be surprise to me if this knocked the socks off established fans, turned the heads of others whilst also recruiting new fans. It does have a quintessentially British type of sound, but fans of super smooth Scandi Rock should equally adore this album.

Vocalist Sue Willets is one of my favourites, mainly because she has such an emotive voice and style. She always managed to get me invested in songs with total ease; whether it is a simple hook or a massive booming vocal; yet again she is on top form and is an absolute star throughout this album. There's lots of variety in the songs, with every emotion touched upon, from feel good sing-alongs to melancholic heart breakers. It is also lyrically quite powerful at times.

My favourites change with every listen. I'm pretty sure that the ballad, 'Broken Hearted Man' has every chance becoming one of the greatest DF tunes ever and it has shades of Sophie B. Hawkins in Willets' vocal delivery. They also have a chance of impressing many genre fans with 'Young Hearts' and 'All Eyes On You'. One of my faves is (without doubt) 'Break These Chains' with its explosive chorus that sees Willets nailing it with her emotion-filled performance. When it comes to the Fox, I do tend to focus on Willets (as you've no doubt noticed), but Tim Manford delivers a master-class in Melodic Rock guitar riffs and there are some really killer keyboard hooks in there as well.

'Breathless' is instantly enjoyable, full of hooks and memorable choruses which makes this a superb record with the band delivering traditional sounding Melodic Rock at its finest!
