Profile Sweden band who had enjoyed good airplay in scandinavia and some european countries at the end of the eighties. A mix of Lite AOR / Westcoast / pop for a good measure. The overall sound is light and radio-friendly, with sticky choruses and excellent production.

Many tunes are definitely adult pop, sweet to the ears. But there’s some gems like ‘Stay The Night’, gorgeous AORish, awesome track. Other pearls: ‘On The Run’, like a good Michael Bolton song, ‘I Want You’ a very classy ballad, or the title track, featuring very nice keys and a sing-along chorus. I don’t like the last ones sung in swedish, except the version of ‘Time Is All We Need’ (Stjaernfall). STROM & AXELSSON later would become the duo WEST OF SUNSET, another good project. Rare and recommended…
