The AnswerRevival is the long-awaited third studio album by the Irish rock band, The Answer. The production values are excellent, with rich and vibrant sounds and heavy on the bass. The songs themselves are mostly excellent and I can quite easily listen to the whole album from start to finish without skipping a track – there are excellent riffs, fantastic solos and many a catchy chorus. The limited edition version also contains an 11 track bonus CD which contains a few songs not found on the album’s primary disc, some acoustic versions of album songs and some demos. All in all Revival is an excellent package – there really isn’t a bad song on here and with 2 discs totaling 23 tracks, it represents excellent value. Songs that stood out for me are, “Waste You’re Tears”, ‘Trouble” and the low down bluesy feel of “Can’t Remember, Can’t Forget”. Revival could arguably be the best album by The Answer to date and is certainly just as powerful as their previous outing.  No brainer really, you like rock and roll music that will touch your soul in ways unimaginable? Then pick up this CD, put it in your player and hit play. The music will do the rest, enjoy!
