Inglorious – Ride To Nowhere

5/10

British rockers Inglorious returns with new album “Ride to nowhere”. A followup to 2017 “Inglorious II”.

The legacy of Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Whitesnake etc echoes strong through every song. A marrige between the best of seventies and eighties rock.
This album is very well written, very well played and extremely well sung. Strong songs with powerful choruses and a well balanced diversity between the songs ranging from fast to slow, hard to soft. However there is nothing new about the rock that the boys in Inglorious delivers. It´s been done a hundred thousand times before.
That being said, it’s not always a bad thing. Inglorious avoids the obvious cliches and navigates well all the way through the eleven songs on “Ride to nowhere” without any snags but that’s about it. Even if the rock of Inglorious sometimes is both heavy and fast this is still smooth sailing through calm waters in a nice comfortable boat.
I miss a bit of danger and grit and courage to take it one step further because I´ve seen them live and I know they can deliver just that.
Sadly this remains mainstream AoR/Hardrock that doesn’t knock you down, but doesn’t put you to sleep.
