This album is fantastic, I managed to get one of the few signed copies!Take Me Away really rocks with it's blusey verse & grungey chorus; the vocals seem to tear through any other instrument; Plastic Smiles comes across like an acoustic sea wave with crashing guitar sounds & backing vocals clashing for attention.Hope turns To Dispare is a well written song, a great live number with lovely dark lyrics; Wish I Lived Here Now with it's excellent recording, takes one to a place where questions are given priority to answers.Turn Away (she's walking away), with it's searing solo & great arrangement is a lighter number but still a rocker. I've recently discovered that Abbas played all the instruments on this track including the guitars & drums, amazing.Some Day I Will Recall with it's references to addiction & it's subsequent turmiol has a very different funky sound.The last song on Demolition, Caught Me, rocks the hardest & could be compared to a cross between Guns N' Roses & Nirvana. I think we all remember what happened when the paths of those two bands crossed!     Demolition seem to capture the essence of a real, live, gritty studio sound; with a 'that will do,' attitude because that is what the artist wanted.This works where others have failed...Review by Steve Enemy
