Thr quartet from New York City known as Station are another current band that have been featured at Glory Daze regularly since they first appeared on record in 2013. They are now up to album #5 which included three studio albums (2015, 2018, 2019) and one EP (2013). On this latest effort ‘Perspective’, I believe Station have landed in the Goldilocks zone, delivering a set of songs that showcases their obvious talents.
I think by now most of the regular Glory Daze readers will already know of Station’s credentials through our articles and links to their songs via YouTube. They fit into the late 80’s and early 90’s melodic rock scene seamlessly. The songs assembled here are more than just proof of that.
The opener ‘I Can’t Find My Way’ is just awesome 80’s/90’s rock that Danger Danger or Firehouse would be proud of. Check the fun time video below. Things toughen up on ‘See The Light’, love the reverb laden riff from Chris Lane which underpins the whole song. The first anthem ‘Do You Really Want To Fall In Love Again’, a track that could’ve spun big on radio back in 1990, whereas ‘Don’t Keep Me Waiting’ is more straight forward but no less appealing.
Slowing things up a touch is ‘Tonight’ but things really lift for the mighty ‘If You Want Love’, surely one of the best tracks on the album, a simply majestic affair. Station return to hard driving rock with ‘Believe’, the track is held together by Chris Lane’s sizzling guitar work. The band then call forth the spirit of Led Zeppelin on ‘All Over Again’, once you navigate your way past the acoustic introduction.
‘Spanish Steps’ is perhaps the most laid back song here, sounding like a subdued Billy Squier but without the humongous drums. The piano makes for an unusual lead on the album closer ‘You Found Yesterday’. Not long after it’s drowned by some heavy riffing. Tell me that chorus hasn’t been nicked from Swiss band Allison and their 1994 World Cup anthem ‘Dreams Of Glory’. Sounds mighty similar to me.
This is a well-balanced album that holds up across its 48:35 runtime. I generally like all the songs here, but a couple really lift Station to another level, plus the whole thing sounds like a million bucks under a set of headphones. You really can’t ask for more than that. Give it a whirl, with our blessing.
