LASTWORLD – Time (2019)

LASTWORLD - Time (2019) full

Multi-instrumentalist / songwriter Jim Shepherd and vocalist David Cagle joined forces after approaching their label separately as each wanted to create more new music. The project both formed is named LASTWORLD, and their debut album titled ”Time”.
It is a good pairing, with Shepherd recently releasing his solo CD ‘Jaded’ and Cagle was half of the JK Northrup / David Cagle album released 2018 (both albums are well worth seeking out).
JK Northrup helps on ‘Time’ with the mastering, whilst Shepherd produced the album. And yes, this is classic Melodic Rock with some AOR touches.

Title Track ‘Time’ and ‘Walk Away’ are upbeat, good time melodic rockers with plenty of keys and a couple of storming guitar solos. The sort of songs Night Ranger would like a go at.
Cagle and Shepherd can do a good ballad too as ‘I Can Only Be Me’ shows. Cagle really gets to show the emotional side of his singing on this one. Not be outdone the song features another top draw guitar solo from Shepherd.

Both ‘Just Another Day’ and ‘Fallen’ have some kind of a light proggy feeling, not only in the vocals of David Cagle but the keyboard arrangement and rhythm.
The bonus track ‘Lose You Now’ is one of the album’s highlights, featuring lovely sax playing from Jim Shepherd. One of those songs that would have graced the airwaves back in the ’80s.

We have a good team-up in LastWorld and a solid debut. It’s a varied album with very good musicianship, smooth vocals and melodic tunes.
Highly Recommended
