A nice solid slice of not to well known early 90’s melodic rock. If you are a fan of 80’s melodic rock, you can’t go wrong with this one. Great standouts as ‘Angel’ and show Me The Way’. Recommended.
this is a great CD a must have for your collection… if you don’t have get it…my two favs are ‘Mississippi queen(Cover song)’ & ‘magic’…
What a great CD!! One of the best rock CDs I’ve ever heard. Clyde Holly is an excellent singer and songwriter by all standards!
This is sheer genius. Combining melodic rock with some pomp overtones and finished off with Clyde Holly’s superb vocals (very Dennis Churchill Dries (White Sister)). If you like White Sister, Y&T, or indeed any combo that matched power with melody this is a must have!!! PS the cover of Mountains Mississippi Queen is just awesome!!
Album opener ‘Run For Your Life’ leaves you gasping for superlatives. It starts off as Kansas/Prophet style A.O.R., the mid section changes to Dream Theater style arrangements, before finishing off with double kick drums and lead guitars on overkill during the choruses and solos! Just when you catch your breath, a gorgeous piece of melodic rock a la Firehouse is presented to us in the shape of ‘Angel’. A spectacular album, one of very few highlights during 1993.
‘Angel’, ‘Out too late’, ‘Livin time’, Magic’ and ‘Here and now’. This is a great record and far better than anything a Scandi act ever released! Nuff said !
A killer album. Big keys, big production, absolutely amazing harmony vocals (just listen to ‘Angel’ for proof) and some of the best pomp since Prophets heyday. It still gets regular plays in my CD deck.
These guys had the chops, the licks and the kicks to be the best. There are a few gems here, including Angel, Out Too Late, Show Me The Way and Somewhere In The Night, Here And Now.
A pretty good AOR release. I really enjoyed their sound. I guess my favorite tracks here are “Don’t Cry No More” and “Here and Now”.
I would compare to Hardline or Journey and Foreigners best. Every song I give 5 out of 5 *s.
