Profile Great and ultra rare piecereleased in 1993 on Roll-Em Records. Musically this is a quite diverse affair, with quality songs ranging from Westcoast Pop to full blown 80’s styled AOR / Melodicrock sung in English. The first half of the album features more Westcoast styled tracks along the lines of Phil Carmen, AOR is the dish of the day on the 2nd half. A good exampe of the latter has to be “Circle of Hands” which features a blistering guitar solo and a quirky but yet melodic chorus”. Lot To Learn” is probably the hardest rocking tune on offer. With cool keys and more blistering guitars this leads us right into “Spot Lights”, a fantastic guitar riff ladden AOR gem which is highlighted by a ultra melodic hookline with nice harmony vocals – and those layered melodic but yet shredding guitars guitars even reminded of early Def Leppard.  If you’re into obscure AOR along the lines of Frank Johnson or JC then this gem should be right up your alley.
