One of the greatest Melodic rock / AOR acts from the ’80s Swedish scene, BAD HABIT, did a comeback to headline the Swedish AOR Convention, and at the same time released this “After Hours [re-cap] [2-CD Remastered + Unreleased“, a 2-disc set including their celebrated 1989 album ‘After Hours’ freshly remastered plus a bonus track, and an extra CD featuring 2 brand new songs and ton of unreleased tracks from the era, all supervised by the band’s guitarist / producer Hal Marabel.
This limited edition released four years ago is already out of print, and as requested by many of you, here’s for all to enjoy.

Way back in 1989 Bad Habit release ‘After Hours’, one of the strongest European AOR / Melodic rock albums of the year with a sound in the classic Scandinavian style but also influenced big big names from the genre such as FM, Shy, Boulevard, Strangeways, etc.
The singer, Bax Fehling, has an impressive range comparable to vocalists such as Fergie Fredericksen, Tony Mills, or Terry Brock, while the guitarist Hal Marabel delivers solos as impressive as Steve Lukather or Neal Schon. Lush and occasionally “pomp-sounding” keyboards, thanks to Doc Pat Shannon, feature heavily on many songs, while the memorable choruses on tracks such as “Play the Game,” “Rainbow,” “Rowena,” “Don’t Stop,” “Coming Home,” “Living on the Edge,” and “Winner Takes It All” are loaded with grand and rich background vocals.

The bonus disc is excellent, with new songs especially recorded for this reissue, plus early 1988 / 1989 unreleased recordings
