 Ben Brookes has just released his new album, The Motor Car & The Weather Balloon and it’s compiled full of Soft Rock tracks that can still kick ass but with a softer edge. All the great bands of the past have done it. They’ve dabbled in the art of Soft Rock even though they’re Hard Rock/Metal fiends who can play as good as the next guy. Be Brookes took the initiative and ran with it .We chose to specifically listen to “Stories In  The Rain, and if you don’t get the hint that it’s going to be Soft Rock just from the title, get a clue. This is what Soft Rock is made of.

Let’s dissect into what happens here, what is it that we really need to know? What goes into make the lost art of Soft Rock? One thing you need is a catchy hook, a hook that people can sing along to and be able to recreate with their own voice. the vocals in this track is nothing to write home about but he can hold his own. It’s the lyrics and the delivery behind it that makes it the hook that it is. Also, what does every hook need to be paired with? A catchy guitar riff that is soothingly similar to the hook. “Stories In The Rain” is a steady dose of music that people want to hear and sing along to, nothing less, nothing more. Check it out and see for yourself.
