Miss Behaviour: Last Woman Standing

AOR/Melodic (Hard) Rock
4.5/5.0

AOR melodic rock is finally getting the recognition it deserves. Witness the new AOR magazine from England's Classic Rock catalogue. For better or worse, depending on your perspective and possibly your age, AOR melodic rock is inherently viable. On Last Woman Standing,Sweden's Miss Behaviour joins the new generation of bands that enjoy, revel in, and present the best of melodic rock. Last Woman Standing is a solid representative.

Exposing the very definition of music, songs of melody and harmony, Miss Behaviour gives us a lesson in melodic rock history that extends over 40 plus years, but rejoices in the Eighties. Most listeners who've been transfixed and jaded by modern rock, will dismiss the inherent beauty of Miss Behavior's mission. The song 1988 betrays Miss Behaviour's intentions. But why should we dismiss the clarity of the late Eighties harmony (dismissing the spandex and excess, of course). Till We Meet Again brings vibrance to the rock ballad. Taking Hostage and Emergency blend hard rock heaviness with true melodic accessibility. There's no capitulation to modern trends here. Living the Dream and Cynthia offer the delight of melodic rock, with all its flavor and catchiness, without compromise. The most convincing song is the title track. This song, longer than the rest at over seven minutes, offers a duet with Kajsa Berg and tour de force of epic AOR rock. Classic stuff: it doesn't get much better than this.

If you grew up on grunge, post grunge, or participate in the hostile, heavy, and vulgar variations of modern rock, Miss Behaviour's Last Woman Standing will not please you. But if you love both mature and melodic rock, Miss Behaviour's Last Woman Standing will not disappoint. Recommended.
