Review by Tarcisio Moura
3 stars Delightul 70´s prog rock band from Denmark. I really didn´t know about its existence before I saw some reviews here on PA. I wanted to start with them with their third album, the conceptual Pictures From Cyclus 7, but when the CD arrived they had mistaken it for this one. Oh well, guess I´ll have to write about that one afterwards. Anyway, Bla Som Altid is far from bad. In fact I liked very much. Although they sing in their native language on this work, their sound is very much international.

The music here is a mix of heavy rock with some folk inlfuences, plus a little bit of jazz and symphonic elements. Sometimes they sound like Deep Purple MK I (around the time of their self titled LP), sometimes like Uriah Heep or Jethro Tull, but most of the time you can say they have a personality of their own. Their main feature here is the guitar talents of Finn Olafsson: the guy is very good. I also loved the keyboards (lots of Hammond!). Vocals are only average, but some backings are very well done. Production is ok. A shame this CD is so short (35 minutes)

Their songwriting is quite good, but not exceptional: there are no fillers, all tracks are good and varied, with tasteful arrangements and nice perfomances by all involved. Nothing is very complicated or bombastic as one might expect from a symphonic band, but it is still good. If you like 70´s prog rock with the aforementined highs and lows, you should check this out. Ache definitly deserved more exposure. Rating: 3,5 stars.

The symphonic prog elements has been replaced with a more jazzy type of pop rock though. I think this is ... (read more)

2 stars After countless auditions from ACHE "Bla Som Altid", I realy can't say which this albun deserves figure in my collection. The work from this Danish band ( at least in this disk) is im my opinion, a simple mixture of slow passages (like ballads) with more fast themes (with some riffs and duets b ... (read more)

4 stars With this album,Ache,is picking up the pace quite considerably,from Pictures From Cyclus 7. Don't get me wrong Cyclus is excellent in a mellow soothing way.Here we have most songs written by the bass player,who I'm sure is was a fan of Kansas and the vocal harmonies of Styx + twin guitar attac ...
