So much talent, innovative, fresh,spirited, great vocals, such great lyrics, but so underated… I´ll never understand why this band wasnt properly appreciated. May time bring justice to them.
All my fav bands are 80s Journey, Survivor, Toto, MR Mister;? to name a few.. The music these days will never compare to what the 80s had. Call it cheesy, call it cliche, but the 80s rocked, and rocked hard!
This [ I’ll Let You Drive] was one of my favorites from “Face”. The keyboards make it sound haunting, unlike most of their songs, but it rocks! Mr. Mister weren’t together real long, but they were always creative & made a huge difference in music? in just a few years time.
5.0 out of 5 stars Rich Rocks,
Richard Pages voice melts the hearts of any fan of this music. The tunes are snappy and still relevant even though 80s based. No one will be disappointed with this album
5.0 out of 5 stars
Very entertaining forgotten wave music. Sure brings back a lot of memories. I write this review to let others know that there is a hidden treasure in this album that is worth giving a chance to. This album is certainly worth picking up, especially if the spirit of the hunter lies within.
