3 out of 5

"Living in yesterday" is the 2nd solo album from former Harem Scarem singer Harry Hess, his first one "Just another day" from 2003 was a mediocre album but the new one is better. Even though Harem Scarem parted ways in 2008 with their last studio album "Hope", we´re still getting Harem Scarem-like albums such as First Signal in 2010 which was a collaboration between Hess and Dennis Ward. And now "Living in yesterday" that sounds like a softer Harem Scarem album, not so strange since his former bandpals Pete Lesperance, Creighton Doane and Darren Smith are playing on the album. There are also guest appearances from well respected guitarists like Tommy Denander on "I don´t wanna want you", Magnus Karlsson on "Living in yesterday" and Howie Simon on "What if" and "It´s over".
This is a safe buy if you´re a fan of Hess, where the highlights are the title track, "I live for you" and "I don´t wanna want you".
