Solas is the soundtrack you need for driving across the country. All songs have that feel-good cruising sentiment and vary from focused to playful. Southern Rock is definitely felt, and there is also plenty of Jam Band and ’70s sway. Basically, The Answer is one of those bands that everyone can like. Jimmy Page has been to several shows, and Joe Elliot even said that The Answer may well have some influence on the next Def Leppard album.
Solas is the Celtic word for light, which backs The Answer’s Northern Irish origin. Light is certainly what the band was reaching for after a lot of personal hardships before this album. That darkness is hidden in the undertones, but for the most part you’ll get something positive—like the armored optimism of anything that properly matures.
