CD review W.E.T. ‘Retransmission’

W.E.T., that’s still Robert Såll (the “W” from Work of Art), Erik Mårtensson (the “E” from Eclipse), and Jeff Scott Soto (the “T” from Talisman) who teamed up with a few more musicians to work on and record the forth longplayer. ‘Retransmission’ is the title of the new musical treat that reaches us from the North.

Three years after ‘Earthrage’, the guys got back together to work on a decent successor. By listening to the new album from the beginning to the end, it can be stated that the venture was successful. Considering the core of the band with the three musicians mentioned above, you can expect nothing but well-made rock that impresses with great melodies.

W.E.T. doesn’t change their basic musical direction on the new album, nor do they repeat themselves. The guys rather build on what they have already achieved, evolve and give their inspiration for great rock songs a free run.

Sometimes soulful (‘Got to Be About Love’) and at other times anthemic ‘You Better Believe It’, these guys really rock their way through the eleven songs of the new longplayer. A track that is certainly one of the little highlights is ‘Beautiful Game’. Already the somewhat harder held opening riff is announcing good things still to come. W.E.T. can rock and ‘Beautiful Game’ is the proof. More of this kind of songs wouldn’t have done any harm to the album.

W.E.T. is not surprising, but is entertaining. ‘Retransmission’ is an album that fulfills all expectations, but does not exceed them. Fans of melodic rock will be well served here and will certainly enjoy ‘Retransmission’.
