House Of Lords was about to make us believe that we would be offered one album a year from them after the release of their last two records. his is not the case and we had to wait two years for the band to release this new opus.

First of all, let's distribute a good point for the artwork of the product. This time, the cover is attractive, the kid who was the author of the previous work has left, it's a chance, and gave his crayons to a worthy artist who made much better use of them. Music-wise, it starts off very strong, 'Harlequin' and 'Ocean Divide' make the melodic Geiger counters go crazy. These are two new hits.  

...and the rest of it goes down a notch. The mid-tempo 'Hit The Wall' is pleasant but doesn't really take off, the eponymous track that follows has a two-part chorus, one of which is too repetitive and uninteresting, as for the ballad 'The Sun Will Never Set Again', it is confusingly banal. 'New Day Breakin' barely makes up for the lack of melodic regularity, we tell ourselves that it's going to be striking and then it lets us down on the way and hope falls as quickly as it was born, 'Reign Of Fire', a song with a blues tendency, is arpeggiated in a too monolithic way and 'Concussion' is boring. As for the last three tracks of the opus, only 'Art Of Letting Go' is interesting with its melodic verve.

"Saint Of The Lost Souls", twelfth opus of House Of Lords, doesn't reach the level of "Cartesian Dreams", "Precious Metal" and "Indestructible". This is a great disappointment from one of the leaders of the hard melodic scene who suffers here greatly from the comparison with the competition, especially from Eclipse's one for the old ones and One Desire's one for the new ones.

Cet opus tourne en boucle, ce "Hit And Run" chaloupant est addictif, et je conseille à mes chroniqueurs préférés ainsi qu' à tous d'écouter quelque fois "Grains of Sands", gros titre! Top album 4*
