It’s that time again! Even after Amber Galactic, Sometimes the World Ain’t Enough, and Aeromantic, The Night Flight Orchestra still aren’t content to rest on their laurels, and continue to pump out albums full of joyous hit songs with a quick turnaround.
Yes, hot on the heels of last year’s Aeromantic, Aeromantic II delivers another 51 minutes of feel good 80s-inspired hard rock action. Although this is resolutely not the type of music I normally listen to with any regularity, there’s just something about The Night Flight Orchestra. It’s partially that I love the singer, (from Soilwork, and more recently Act of Denial), but mainly because the songs are just so damn good. This is happy music for happy times, and when I listen to Aeromantic II I can’t help but feel uplifted.
These new songs are as well-written as any of the band’s material. Each track sparkles with colour and character, and the entire collection of songs provides so much entertainment that if you could bottle it you’d make millions. The songs have huge catchy choruses and so many hooks that you’ll get caught up in them. This is addictive stuff, and glowingly positive.
These songs are just fun. Aeromantic II is a joy to listen to, and I’ll continue to love this band for many years to come it seems.
