PERFECT PLAN – Jukebox Heroes (2019)
Swedish Melodic Rockers PERFECT PLAN continue working on their second studio album, but as a treat for fans, have released a digital only covers EP, “Jukebox Heroes” featuring covers of classic songs by Foreigner, Giant, Survivor, and The Storm, the American super-group featuring Gregg Rolie, Steve Smith, Ross Valory, Josh Ramos, & Kevin Chalfant).
Vocalist Kent Hilli said; ”We are so excited to have been given the possibility to do these four cover songs. We had so much fun making this tribute to our idols, who we listened to growing up.
We think that the EP showcases what the band is all about: respect for high quality AOR / Melodic Rock.
This is also a way to fill the gap between records for our fans while working on the next album”.
Absolutely faithful to the originals and very well performed and produced, these covers sound terrific.
While my favorite is ‘That Was Yesterday’ – a quite simple song but really complicated to version and not getting embarrassed yourself – all these covers are excellent choices and are very, very well done.
1 – Didn’t Know It Was Love (Survivor)
2 – Show Me the Way (The Storm)
3 – Stay (Giant)
4 – That Was Yesterday (Foreigner)
