Ok, so you can’t go back in time to bathe in the good ole Rock of ‘the day.’  But what if it came to you in all of its glory?  That’s exactly what you’re getting in the 3-song +1 Live track EP called Never Too Late by the Irish rock band, The Answer.  The Answer delivers a tried and tested recipe of hard rock and blues, much like you heard in the ‘70s, and they’re all too happy to do it.  A look at the band’s elite fans will tell you that they’re on the right track.  Those include Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin (I didn’t have to tell you that, did I), AC/DC (whom they’re currently touring with), and obviously The Stones, whom they’ve opened some dates for on The Stones’ last tour.

Essentially, this EP contains “Never Too Late,” a fiery ‘70s arena-rock drenched tune from their debut album, Rise (2006); “Highwater or Hell,” “The Doctor,” and a Live in Japan rendition of “Come Follow Me.”  “Never Too Late,” is another arena rock piece in the loving tradition of The Black Crowes and other hard blues rockers, specifically ‘70s bands.  You’ll detect a distinct AC/DC tone on “Highwater to Hell,” a fore-running tune from their upcoming full-length album (Everyday Demons – scheduled for March 31 in the US but March 2 in the UK, and Japan on February, 17.)

“The Doctor” is a tough bluesy number not unlike a Led Zeppelin tune from LedZep’s own heydays and is a track not found on other releases.  The live version of “Come Follow Me” is a no-holds barred rendition of a download only track from 2006. 

Trust me on this one, folks.  The Answer is what you’re waiting for, especially if you love the Rock of the ‘70s.  This is the real stuff.  And this recently released EP is collectible with the bonus inclusions that round out the 4-track disc.
