SWEET WILLIAM – ocean – CD digipackCD digipackd-monic records2013
Sweet William’s new album « Ocean » is a concept album : it begins with a prologue, classically instrumented, then proceeds directly with the title track « Ocean » which finally opens the album in the good old rock style and straightforward. Constant tempo changes and musical opposites merge into one another, “Ocean” is about the human abyss, the music seems threatening, dark – but then again bright and shiny – just like the sea – the Ocean. Sweet William’s music is back to its roots which leaded them to be a successful band signed on the respected Hyperium and Dion Fortune ! This album contains some hits such as “Insane”, “Over”, “Ground”, but it also features a wonderful cover of Joy Divison’s anthem “New Dawn fades”.
