Lana Lane seems to be an almost unstoppable force in music. 2007 saw yet another great release from the band. The previous Lady Macbeth album broke with the band's long standing tradition of opening and closing each album with an instrumental, and on the present album they jump straight into a rocking opening song, suitably entitled Into The Fire. However, somewhat in line with the old tradition, the album is wrapped up with a nearly eight minute long instrumental medley of many of the album's songs. Not absolutely original perhaps, I'm sure someone else did something similar, but a rather cool idea nonetheless. What is found in between is once more a very strong set of melodic, progressive songs. The very best songs come at the beginning and at the end of the album (the three first and the three last in particular, I would say), but there are really no weak moments as such to speak of. (Capture The Sun was performed live by Erik Norlander's fabulous side project The Galactic Collective and there very successfully merged with Norlander's solo piece Sky Full Of Stars.)

Red Planet Boulevard is yet another great album from a remarkably consistent band. Highly recommended addition!
