Jim Jidhed - Push On Through album review

The best Melodic Rock you can get this month

Cover art for Jim Jidhed - Push On Through album

Holidaying from his normal role as the lead singer of Sweden’s Alien, Jim Jidhed’s sixth solo release is a real grab‑bag of sheer fabulousness. Produced by The Murder Of My Sweet’s Daniel Flores, who is known for a heavier style, Push On Through reallybenefits from having a little additional crunch, though its beauty is never swamped in gratuitous power chords.

Dave Ling was a co-founder of Classic Rock magazine. His words have appeared in a variety of music publications, including RAW, Kerrang!, Metal Hammer, Prog, Rock Candy, Fireworks and Sounds. Dave’s life was shaped in 1974 through the purchase of a copy of Sweet’s album ‘Sweet Fanny Adams’, along with early gig experiences from Status Quo, Rush, Iron Maiden, AC/DC, Yes and Queen. As a lifelong season ticket holder of Crystal Palace FC, he is completely incapable of uttering the word ‘Br***ton’.
