Profile Bruce Hibbard’s “Never Turnin’ Back” sits easily amongst the best West Coast AOR albums, and undoubtedly it’s one of the more purist recordings in the genre. Despite Hibbard’s CCM origins, the lyrics are pretty straightforward.

This customer at Amazon describes perfectly what I think about this little gem: “The CD starts out right out of the gate with the sprightly title cut, and doesn’t let up until the final note of “We Are All His Children.” If this CD were released in secular radio in its day, it would have sponsored Top 10 singles for three years. 

All tracks are pure AOR breezin’, exquisitely performed and produced. Bruce sings like an angel and the session musicians are top notch, including the great Hadley Hockensmith on guitars. Highly Recommended.
