Review: Lauren Harris – Calm Before The Storm [2008]

amazon-lauren-harrisLauren Harris may be the daughter of Iron Maiden bassist Steve, but you’d never be able to tell by her musical debut. The 12-track offering titled CALM BEFORE THE STORM fits more along the likes of Avril Lavigne and Pat Benetar rather than her father’s NWOBHM roots, giving songs like “From the Bottom to the Top,” “See Through,” and “Get Over It” a pop-rock mainstream radio aura spit-shined to excess. Despite the album boasting solid musicianship on cuts like “Come On Over” and some tasty guitars throughout, the overall affair lacks that intangible spark and emotion, relegating this disc to the ranks of an above average bar band struggling to find its voice. www.demolitionrecords.comMike SOS
