This LP is excellent. Seems nobody ever heard of this band, but they’re great. Poppy melodic hard rock at its best, with a sound similar to Winger, Firehouse or Trixter. Their self-titled CD displays A.O.R. hard rock with a good amount of synthesizer use. ‘Let It Roll’ is the heaviest song, “Take Me Tonight” is the best song on the album.
best song is ‘look in your eyes’. This was a great LP when it came out. Check out Look in Your Eyes. Great power ballad.
Willie Hines has a Dave King (Fastway & Katmandu) and Jack Blades sort of approach to the songs. High points are ” Look In Your Eyes” & “Not The Only One”… decent A.O.R. tracks.
Excellent piece of the Hard Rock genre with strong A.O.R. influences.Night Ranger, Only Child with higher vocals, or even pre-dated yet bad DARE. Actually “Lonely” and “Outside” show these guys can write an excellent power pop song. A few gems make it worth keeping.
This is an unknown treasure. Sure its not all that original, sure we’ve heard it all before. Of course its sweeter than a candy store. But its exactly what we want!! The best songs are Lolita, Parlez vous francais, and Look in your eyes. When you love your early Winger or Ratt this is what you’d like.
This is a great release that never made it. Excellent songs and real rock n’ roll attitude but still very accessible. They probably sounded too similar to a lot of other bands at the time to have made it on a small label.
What this album displayed was the emerging talent of Willie Hines as a considerable songwriting talent, the kind of guy that can write hooks that won’t let go. “I bet you’re thinking that you’re pretty cool/Like Bobby Darrin singing Mack the Knife” has to be the best simile ever in a rock song. Blessed with one of the best guitarists I’ve ever heard,and Willie is a pretty damn good guitarist himself.
Fans of the style enjoy it 100%
I recognize the last name of the drummer. Hes Denny Carmassi’s little brother. Billy played for Aldo Nova and Sammy Hagar. Great 80s music. What ever happened to great guitar solos like these? Outside is the best track.
This a good melodic rock album. I like the way they use the keyboards (Van Halen) Lolita and look in your eyes are very funny songs. 1988 was a great year for hard rock.
