TASTE: Taste

Rating: R
Label: AORHeaven 2013
Review by: Urban "Wally" Wallstrom

We are not amused! (Bad) Taste were probably aiming for a simple laid-back production with matching material. Sadly the result has no real musical identity and the one dimensional vocal style cuts like a knife. AOR Heaven should definitely know better than releasing an unfinshed production. The harsh reality. 4-track demos of the eighties sounded better than this. Need more info? Rather than throwing Irish confetti at the band - original sheet as written by the label follows. Make your own mind up. Straight to the bin...

Attention: Press-release as written by the label - not the reviewers opinion: "Taste was formed by the two brothers Christoffer and Felix Borg the day before new year's eve in 2009. First, Taste was only supposed to be a side-project, because both also had played in other groups. But it didn't take long before the Swedes decided to turn Taste into a full band. During the two following years, they wrote and recorded five songs inspired by the 80's and bands like Europe, FM, Giant, Valentine and White Lion. Since they never met any suitable band members to complete the line-up and therefore couldn't play live, the brothers decided to record their first full-length album themselves. Taste had a vision to blend a vintage 80's sound with a fresh modern production. The self-titled album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Christoffer Borg in his own studio".
