Solid Ground - Can't Stop Now
When I started to search for some background information about Solid Ground I found out they decided to call it a day. The main reason for this decision is the lack of time for most band members. As they stated on their website ‘We couldn’t dedicate as much time to the band as we wanted to.’

If you’d ask me it’s a strange situation. You’ve just released a new album and after that you decide to call it a day because of the lack of time. Besides that, Solid Ground did write another 4 songs that they still want to record and release. So this means you don’t have enough time for the band but you do want to record another couple of songs. Well, in the end we aren’t here to question the band, but to review their latest effort called Can’t Stop Now. The irony!
 
´Not This Time´ is the start of the album which immediately gives away the influences of Madball and Judge. Besides these influences I kept thinking of Lou Koller during the songs. Of course not the least name to be compared to, but it’s only because of the style that is very similar. The rest of the album contains some great songs, but sadly enough there are also some tracks that you could skip instantly.
 
Overall Can’t Stop Now is not a bad album, it’s just that a lot of songs sound the same and there are just a handful of tracks that stand above the rest. Still it’s a pity this band calls it day because I believe there is some potential present. On the other hand I do respect the fact they want to do the job right with no concessions. So check these guys out on their last European show.
