REVIEW : FIND ME, Lightning In A Bottle (Frontiers Music s.r.l. Release: 11 March 2022)

Melodic rock sentational FIND ME is back with its brand new opus entitled "Lightning In A Bottle". This is the band's, already, fourth full-length record and it's out through Frontiers Music. Find Me consists of Swedish musician, songwriter, and producer Daniel Flores (The Murder Of My Sweet) and singer Robbie LaBlanc (Blanc Faces, ex-Fury). 

"I really want to thank the band on this album, Jonny Trobro, Michael Palace (guitar), Rolf Staffan Pilotti, and the amazing voice, my friend, Robbie LaBlanc and, of course, our silent, but very vocal and important member, Serafino Perugino, for all the hard work on this release! But there is one person I really want to thank and that is Alessandro Del Vecchio, who is responsible for writing 10 amazing songs on this record. He will be featured heavily on my next work too. Yes, he likes to play!!! And is pretty lucky too! There is still one more BIG, BBBBBBBIG surprise on the album, featuring one of the best songwriters and keyboard players on earth at the moment, but I'll let the press team have that one..." says Daniel Flores.

After the solid opener tune of "Survive", it comes the first hihglight of the new opus; the amazing "Far From Over" (feat. Vince Di Cola)!!! Originally sang by Frank Stallone in "Staying Alive" soundtrack. An absolute monster cover by FIND ME!! The soulful and emotional "Back To You" is among my favorites out of the new record while with "Distant Echoes" and "Remember (It's Me)" we have two more great songs full of clever hooks, edgy guitars and, most of all, the unique vocals by Robbie!! The classic 80's groovier-AOR tune of "Under A Bad Sign" and the amazing commercial "Give My Heart" are both killers!!!!! 

There's nothing more to add here except that if you love classic 80's edgy and commercial AOR with tons of melodies, amazing performances and killer tunes, then FIND ME's brand new opus is THE album for you!!!
