(Melodic Rock Records)

The World Outside', the new release from the French based duo Paris gives the Melodic Rock fans exactly what they're looking for, with songs that stick in the ears from the second they come on. It's a album that shows musicians with tight chemistry presenting a sound that is truly infectious. Paris is comprised of, Frédéric Dechavanne on lead Vocals, Keyboards and Sébastien Montet on guitars and  Keyboards. Along with Steve Newman from Newman on a additional guitar, David Bartlett on bass and Rob McEwen on drums.  While melodies run rampant throughout this is a guitar driven album. Thanks to the amazing guitar pyrotechnics of Sébastien Montet whose fluid soloing and driving rhythms are on point and highlight every track. The songs combine elements of smooth and memorable vocal melodies, great guitar solos and killer production.  Highlights include the opening track "End Of My World", " (featuring Alessandro Del Vecchio from Hardline on backing vocals), "When You Find Love" (featuring Robert Säll of Work Of Art on guitar), "Looking For Love", "This Broken Heart" the hook laden chorus of "Tears In Your Heart". All in all,  'The World Outside' is a solid melodic rock album that would fit nicely into any musical catalog. Hopefully the duo will continue to put out more albums. It's truly refreshing to hear music from a band that wants the listener to be able to press play and enjoy their listening experience. If you are even remotely a fan of melodic rock, this album is for you. Highly Recommended
