Is The Magic Still There?
So, it’s official. Az Yet have become the group I‘ve blogged about the most. So far. I wasn’t really planning on writing about them again, but their new album, “She’s Magic”, really surprised me. With line-up changes and changes of social media accounts, right before the release of the album, I really didn’t know what to expect nor think anymore. One thing’s for sure: This comeback still doesn’t feel like the old or original Az Yet (the Az Yet from their breakthrough days), but the album does remind me a of it to a certain extend.
It’s noticeable that Shawn Rivera is no longer part of the album. With Kenny, Dion and Claude all having a somewhat similar vocal sound, I miss the variation in lead vocals the way their debut album showcased. I think Shawn’s vocals would’ve been a great addition. However, with Marc also singing on the album, it does provide the flashback to the old days that every fan is looking for.
