KHYMERA THE GREATEST WONDER reviews

Specialists/collaborators reviews

Stephen
Third installment of Italian's Khymera, fronted and produced by the legendary Dennis Ward whom famous with its slick and shiny polished sound, and the man also surprisingly has such an emotional and great voice and fits the music nicely after replacing Steve Walsh in their second release, "A New Promise". Behind the keyboard set is Daniel Liverani, the mastermind and founder of this band and his playing is quite dominant in this album, as predicted.

Another important thing behind the scene is that most songs were written by Tom and James Martin, a prominent songwriter which also written many tracks on Vega's sensational album, "Kiss of Life", in 2010. Musically, this is standing right between the melodic hard rock and tender AOR, so you'll have a balance mix of uptempo hard rock, midtempo tunes, and passionate ballads.

"Beautiful Life" and "Borderline" opened the album nicely and both are my fave songs. "Love Has Been And Gone" is a beautiful and emotional ballad, the lyric is painful and obvious on the words 'nobody wants to lose but somebody has to cry', pure genius! The second half of the album is getting better and better. "No Sacrifice", "The Greatest Wonder", and "Fight For Yesterday" are consecutive hits, "Love Will Find You" is a soothing AOR piece and the magnificent chorus will chill your spine. "Stay Forever" is another gem of the album, and the rest are good with no bad tracks at all.

This record is so great that the magical moment is still there after 4 years since its release and I believe the band itself will find a hard time to top this off. One of the best albums of 2008 and big applause for Dennis Ward, Daniel Liverani, and The Martin brothers. Bravo!

THE GREATEST WONDER-third album of the Italian band KHYMERA is a true AOR musical wonder,a pure jewel in the world of melodic rock .This 3-rd album marks the full maturity of the band - especially in terms of composition and songwritting-trully brilliant!KHYMERA's line up is made of 3 Italian excellent musicians-all members in TWINSPIRITS -a power prog metal band and DENNIS WARD-the brilliant American producer and bass player of PINK CREAM 69!Ward is responsable for the vocals too and he has an excellent voice,it's quite a revelation in my vision,sometimes in BRYAN ADAM's s register!High quality melodic rock here,sensational compositions very catchy and beautifully arranged-a crystal clear production and a little more then 50 minutes of excellent audition of top class AOR!Midtempo songs and superbe rock ballads are flowing in an excellent balance,track after track are revealing the beauty of melodic metal when AOR it's so damn well played! .Beautiful life and Borderline are simply fantastic-2 of the best written AOR songs ever!Great choruses and brilliant musicianship-each musician is on top of his musical expression and maturity here!The first 2 KHYMERA albums -KHYMERA-with STEVE WALSH on vocals and A NEW PROMISE-the first with WARD on vocals are excellent too,but this third one THE GREATEST WONDER-is absolutelly the ...greatest one so far for KHYMERA!In the last couple of years DANIELE LIVERANI was busy with the brand new project TWINSPIRITS-let's hope that KHYMERA will make a new album and I am sure they won't dissapoint at all!5 STARS for a pure AOR jewel album!
