Profile A very underground and still so interesting Canadian band releasing fourth albums. “Cast a Light” is the second and the best of their records released in 1989 offered some high quality songs and a few relaxing parts that are just nice to hear but unfortunately the production is only decent part here.

The first track “Man Of Sorrow” is good quality midtempo AOR/Radiorock that sounds like White Heart. But, it’s the two following tracks that make this record so interesting. First there is “Love You Forever” which is a bit techno-AOR like Petra on their ‘Back on the street’ album. There is a pure AOR chorus like Sweet Comfort Band on this fantastic classic sounding AOR song. The other track is “Now I Believe” which is pure classic 80s AOR with a really terrific sound. The keyboards make this song a winner and give it a sound like Robert Tepper. This song sounds like one of the ultimate AOR songs!

Certainly recommended if you like bands such as White Heart, Rick Cua, Illustrator and for a couple of songs also a Petra fan can enjoy this.
