Beggars & Thieves - We Are The Brokenhearted

Beggars & Thieves
We Are The Brokenhearted
Frontiers Records
They were away for more than 10 years… they reunited (like several other bands), in 2010, to play at Firefest in Nottingham, England. In the meantime they took it more seriously and wanted to go further – not to stay only on a good live event. So, the masterminds of B&T (Louie Merlino - vocals & Ronnie Mancuso - guitars) brought Blake Newman on bass and Erik Gloege on drums on board to complete the new line-up. The result was “We Are The Brokenhearted”… that has all the elements from the previous albums of the band… melodic rock/AOR (this time with some various modern influences here and there) music is what they use to offer and they continue to do.
The album is very well produced and all the songs are coming from the heart… nice melodic tunes like: “We Come Undone”, “Oil & Water” (my beloved one), “Innocence”, “Never Gonna See You Again” (emotionally gloomy track), “beautiful Losers” and “Midnight Blue” will appeal to all the fans of that music genre. Of course this album can’t overcome their great debut but it shows that the band is back again ready to offer good music.
