Some Sorta Salvation.
Now, at a time when the world (especially America), can't get enough of things that suck, The Mercenaries ignore the popular mainstream and release an honest to good Rock'n'Roll album 'Some Sorta Salvation'. From the anthemic opening 'Talk Me Down' (trk1) with the desperate lyrics 'Hanging off a balcony fourteen floors off of the ground, I still feel all alone as a big crowd gathers round, I wish that I could see you and you were here right now, I wish that I could hear you so you could talk me down', to the wise advice on the slightly jazzy 'Fast Arrow/Sharp Blade (trk 2), melodic shout alongs 'Screaming Hallelujah' (trk 3) 'Trained to Take Over' (trk 5), a spaghetti western 'Hero vs Hero' (trk 8), a sentimental ballad with the heart wrenching lyrics 'Sadly accepting your chair is empty, and every betrayal always begins with trust, sadly accepting things that sparkle and shine, will one day slowly start to rust' Sadly Accepting'(trk 9), a haunted string laden song with the lines 'Put me in a prison full of beautiful women, lock the door and throw away the key' 'Lockdown' (trk 7), (don't worry, the goose bumps won't be permanent), to the final bar rocker I Got the Role' (trk 12) with the revealing lines 'Rock'n'Roll you saved my life but then you tried to kill me too' and it's irresistable sing along chorus 'I got the role that no one wanted, I took it and made it mine. It's sad and funny, it's a tragic comedy, it's the story of my life'. The Mercenaries consistently deliver more good songs than you've had bad dates. Most of you will be making alot of mistakes in the near future but getting and hearing The Mercenaries 'Some Sorta Salvation' won't be one of them. They kept their promise, don't keep your distance.
