|Move over 'Cats In Space', you don't have the 70's retro rock market cornered. This is a talented band that screams multiple 70's/80's genre influences. Talk about range (from death metal to disco) the singer Bjorn Speed Strid is the lead "Growler' for Soilwork. This is a fun listen worth checking out.

|Unlike lots of supergroups, side-projects, and bands with interchangeable parts, the Night Flight Orchestra is VERY different from the day job(s) of its members. Boasting members of Soilwork (Bjorn Strid) and Arch Enemy (Sharlee D'Angelo), NFO is a loving tribute to late-'70's pop-rock. Of course, longtime Soilwork fans have known Strid can sing, as he's been sprinkling this voice very effectively throughout thath band's work since 2002's Natural Born Chaos. Sometimes The World Ain't Enough is NFO's fourth album, and follows after Amber Galactic, both offering an energetic, melodic take on turn-of-the-decade radio rock. Here, as on the last album, they add in more danceable beats and what must've seemed like high-tech synths back in 1980, but there's still plenty of guitar crunch. They really capture the production sound, as well as the songwriting style, of that era, as the drums have that muffled, late-'70's thump, and the guitars have a warm tubey quality.

|This likely won't come as much of a shock to people that live in the "melodic rock" world full-time, but for people who listen to heavier metal most of the time, it's no wonder NFO have become kind of a cult favorite, especially among younger folks who might not remember this sound from the first time around. This is very enjoyable stuff, with shades of Cheap Trick, Kiss, Foreigner, ELO, etc. (I'm even reminded a bit of Kix's Cool Kids, an album I've always had a soft spot for.) Well worth checking out, though, both for the AOR-lovers and for the metalhead crowd who can appreciate simple, good rock songs. Here's the thing though: maybe it's because we haven't heard these songs on the radio ten times a day, and don't have cherished memories of (supposedly) carefree youth attached to them, but nothing here is as indelible as those old hits. Again I wonder if the supply of viable hooks has a limit, or if our aging brains just don't take to newer music in quite the same way anymore.

|track 9 "pretty thing closin in" is an atomic bomb a real hit wich deserve to be played ten times by day on radios.the rest is good but not really at my taste.
