Studio album number five from The Alarm and surel an L.P. that will once again win them a place in the hearts and minds of British rock fans. “Raw” is a powerful album that comes up with killer after killer cuts. Even the cover version here, Neil Young’s ROCKIN’ IN THE FREE WORLD is safe in the hands of The Alarm. Album opener and title track, RAW sets the agenda with flowing guitar and gritty vocals. RAW is a gritty guitar based Rock track at it best. No wonder the Americans love this band so much. GOD SAVE SOMEBODY is a country tinged stroll of a song complete with clever lyrucs while MOMENTS IN TIME is a slow acoustic ballad, a potential show stopper for suture live peformances. RAW is an album that will satisfy Alarm fans and win the band many new admirers. Who ever said that Rock was dead !!!!!!!
