Toyz - Carte Blanche

Toyz are a French melodic rock/AOR band originally formed back in 1997, but after numerous break-ups and line up changes they are just now releasing their second album in the form of Carte Blanche.
What we have here is a band heavily influenced and pretty much in the same vein as FM, Foreigner, Bon Jovi, Dokken and Danger Danger.
There is some real quality in the songs here, tracks like 'Velvet Touch' just ooze class. 'The Old Tree' and 'Pharaohs Cries' are two more fine examples of what this band are capable of.

Carte Blanche is a solid album from a very talented band, which fans of the melodic rock and AOR genres should really enjoy!

Rating 8/10
