This is the 20th anniversary reissue of one of the best albums from Australian rock band 1927. Lead by the very strong and melodic vocals of Erik Weideman, 1927 were a good example of the fine Australian rock bands of the late 80’s who made very memorable and melodic rock albums.
This album sold very well at the time and made it to number two on the Australian charts. Highlights include the opening pop hook of “To Love Me”, the classic track “That’s When I Think Of You”, the memorable ballad “If I Could”, and the synth laden rock of “You’ll Never Know”. This anniversary edition contains remastered sound and 2 bonus live tracks along with expanded liner notes and some historical band photos.
These songs are still played regularly on Australian radio which shows the power and quality behind these classic tracks. Ish is recommended to fans of well produced and high quality Australian melodic rock.
