Profile This hook-laden album is filled with outstanding musicianship and strong vocals. Fans of Jillson and Sweet Teaze style tunes need to own this disc. This is one of the truly great Holy Grails of Hair Metal. Good luck findin’ this even though the band will do another.run of a few hundred every once and a while. I wonder if it’s the same Indy manufacturer too, because it’s my understanding you can’t really tell the difference between an original press and one of their later presses, cover included. On with the music: This CD quite simply is all killer, no filler. The best track by far is the opener, “Spellbinder”, which sounds like a cross between Spike from London Quireboys and Roger Daltry fronting L.A. Guns but a little more original sounding, riff-wise. “Wishing Well” follows and is nearly just as Rockin’! Then comes “Rock Me” with just a killer piano intro and amazingly epic tunesmithing to follow. “Carousel”, “Midnight Run” and “Highwire” are up next, “Highwire ” being the absolute standout here. The power ballad, “Bitter Rain” is first class and instantly a classic! Same goes with the follow up.
