Honeymoon Suite – Alive is the quintessential modern AOR album that all rock fans need.

The title track kicks off the album with a bang, immediately grabbing your attention with its melodic guitar solo and strong vocal delivery. A feelgood song with an atmospheric sound, Alive feels like a summertime sunset drive with the windows down. It is a vibe that comes across throughout the entire album.

Introducing a heavier groove with Done Doin’ Me adds the perfect amount of diversity to the album to keep the listeners entertained and wanting more. From the horn section bringing uniqueness to the sound of the song and the rhythmic drum beat, Done Doin’ Me is sure to be a fan favourite.

Tell Me What You Want, the first single off the album, was released back in 2019. It has a modern feel with its distorted vocals and clean guitar tones while staying true to the classic Honeymoon Suite sound. The keys and a guitar solo add to the perfect phrasing and melody.

With strong deliveries from each band member, the album’s high-quality sound stays present from start to finish. Johnnie Dee’s vocals remain powerful, his performance matching those of the classic Honeymoon Suite albums.

A Honeymoon Suite album would not be complete without a ballad, and Alive contains two. Love Comes, and the closing track Doesn’t Feel This Way, show off Honeymoon Suites’ softer side and showcase that they are still on top of their game when it comes to writing music.

Captivating from start to finish, Alive is the perfect comeback album. An album that will definitely be a hit with the die-hard fans and is sure to draw in a new generation of fans who will keep Honeymoon Suite’s music alive for many years to come.

Alive is the quintessential modern AOR album that all rock fans need. More details are available here.
