Stargazer is a Norwegian newcomer in the hardrock scene. When it comes to melodic hardrock out of Norway it always interest me. They know how to bring out the best in melodic hardrock/AOR such as TNT, Stage Dolls, Return and the list goes on. Stargazer is a duo consisting of singer Tore André Helgemo and guitar player William Ernstsen. They have got help in the recordings of this album by two of Scandinavia’s most well-known rhythm section, Morten “Morty Black” Skaget (ex-TNT) on bass and Steinar Krokstad (ex-Stage Dolls) on drums. These guys must have been big fans of TNT because this sounds like Intuition era of that band and if you put in some Shy in there sound you will know how Stargazer sounds like. Yes, this sounds more like TNT than they do today. The album is filled with fantastic riffs and melodies and the songs has great hooklines. Singer Tore has a great voice and sometimes he reminds of Tony Harnell (ex-TNT) and Tony Mills (TNT, ex-Shy). The opening of this album is brilliant. Just listen to I Needed You that is a cracker with strong riffs and the chorus is great. Do you like TNT then Push Me will make you jump of joy because this is so close to the classic TNT sound you will get, the riffs are brilliant. Brother Against Brother is a fantastic mid-tempo hook laden rocker with a catchy chorus, best song of the album. The opening of this album is huge and the 2nd part of the album is not as good but still not bad. You Are The One is a bit average with a simple chorus that don’t lift. Keep The Good Times is brilliant with classy hooklines and the riffs are outstanding and this sounds so much TNT. Another favourite of mine. The production is also top-notch and the album sounds huge. So if you looking for a melodic riff strong album with lots of TNT in the sound then Stargazer is the album for you. I was surprised how good this album was. The grade is very close to a 4 because I been listen to this album a lot and I amazed by the stunning riffs this album has to offer. I recommend this album.
