Review: Breathe

The former singer of The Alarm returns with a vocal style so familiar and so unimaginative that he might well have christened his new group The Bono Dog Doo-Dah Band. Breathe is a thumping and unoriginal collection of songs inspired by life on the road in the USA. From Levi’s And Bibles to Poetic Justice, this anthemic set of rock songs has virtually nothing to say and a lot of noise to say it with. Mike Peters’s musical palette has expanded to include gospel (Spiritual) and synthesizer-laden rock (All I Wanted) but nowhere does he provide anything particularly memorable to communicate to us with it.
