The First song “ The Torch” will grab your attention with the very Angelic intro and then kicks it into high gear. “ You immediately know That this is an Angel album. This is a very diverse album and it will have you Rocking, singing along to anthem type songs, and the Power ballad song “Let it Rain” is truly a masterpiece! It will Grab you and touch your soul.
They held nothing back adding the sound of rain falling to this song and with Franks Killer Vocals this is one Amazing song! I Can Picture the audience with arms in the air swaying back n forth and maybe with lighters or these days cell phone lights.
