Profile Adrian Dodz released their first and only album in 1988 and it is a very good hardrock/AOR album. The Album has some great tracks that make you want to sing along from the second you play the album. Long Nights, and Wrapped Around Her Fingers are two awesome tracks to get you started. Fred Dodds has a great rock voice and this can be heard on the fast rocking songs like Somebody Beat Me to the Punch as well as the slower tracks on the album like Don’t Let A Good Thing Slip Away which demonstrate his skills perfectly.

John Bushnell is a fantastic guitarist, making really nice and creative guitar solos. His riffs are really catchy and will remind you of many bands that were out around that time. The production of the album reminds me slightly of early foreigner. The guitarist, John Bushnell, later went on to form the band Silent Witness.

My favorite songs on the album are: On Down the Line , Wrapped Around Her Fingers, One Night Love and Somebody Beat Me to the Punch. All of these songs are fantastic but the whole album is great and is something you should look into if you’re a fan of late 1980s hardrock. I class this very highly and it is one of my favorite albums that I play on rotation.
