For Fans Of
42:19 is Blueline Medic’s first
full length record in a bit over 4 years, and I was more than intrigued
to see what the band had come up with. Between various activities in
the member’s personal lives, Blueline had been MIA for longer than
most fans would care to admit. With 42:19, BM has once again proven
why they are one of our country’s greatest rock bands.
Kicking off with “Soft Toy”
was a great choice as the song embodies everything that fans have come
to expect from Blueline – great riffs, driving drums and of course,
Donnie’s trademark vocals.
“Angles” contains one of my
favourite Blueline riffs to date and the chorus is bound to be a live
favourite with a chorus that most bands would kill for.
I’m not going to run through
the album track by track as every song on 42:19 contributes to the overall
flow of the record, but trust me when I say that you’ll be struggling
to find any filler on here.
My hat goes off to Hadyn and Richard
Buxton as the production on 42:19 is exactly what these songs needed
to breathe. Warm guitar tones and a mix which gives every instrument
the attention it deserves, they couldn’t have done a better job!
One of the best Australian releases
