Hard at work over a year, Outland has finally re-surfaced with their second release, Long Way Home. Building on the success attained with the release of Different Worlds last summer, the follow up is the recording that Outland principals Jeff Prentice and Rob Nishida feel, truly establishes the Outland sound and provides the listener with the complete Outland experience.

“We really went through an intensive writing period for this CD,” explains Nishida. “As soon as we finished mastering Different Worlds in May of last year, we began writing like crazy. Inspired by the positive response we got for the CD, we wrote over 30 songs in a period of eight months and then went through the excruciating process of picking 12 for Long Way Home, including the bonus track for the Japanese release.”

Long Way Home vividly reveals every color on the Outland palette, from some of the most rocking tracks Outland has ever done, including the opener “Boderline,” an Outland-ized cover of the Thin Lizzy classic “Hollywood,” to the slow churning, fan favorite “How Many Times” and the most tender ballad they’ve ever done with “Somebody Just Like You.” “I am a huge Thin Lizzy fan, so that song was a joy to record,” says Prentice. On the other end of the spectrum, “Somebody” might be at home on something like a Richard Marx record. Long Way Home should appeal to all fans of Different Worlds, plus some fans of slightly harder rock as well”

    Uh, why do you think? The project name "Outland" is the artist name, NOT "Bill Laswell and Pete Namlook". Even Pete Namlook himself said this.
