Review by aapatsos
2 stars 2018 sees two releases from the rock veterans Crack the Sky, a new full album in ''Living in Reverse'' and a compilation named ''Crackology''. Looking at the line-up there is 50% of the original members in the list that produced the 70s albums who made the band's fame.

Unfortunately the music is nowhere near the standards enjoyed in the 70s and would probably be unfair to expect so. There are 12 mid-tempo compositions around the 4-minute mark best described as indifferent rock. Here we have mainly classic retro rock, mixed with funk (Hit) and a bit of dance (Jacket, Bang), alternative rock (Big Dipper, Talk Talk) with the occasional good riffing reminiscent of Blue Oyster Cult (Raining Rain). 'Raining Rain' along with the melodic closing 'Home Tonight' are probably the two songs worthy of mention. Sadly, the title tracks and accompanying lyrics sound extremely shallow, even for a 'traditional' rock album, leaving with little to take away. 'Red Rosary' has a Thin Lizzy ballad feeling which may appeal to vintage rock fans.

Best invest in the 70s releases of Crack the Sky, this may appeal only to fans. 1.5 stars.
