Profile Another hyper rare album that came out in 1987 via Harmony label and produced by Mario Limongelli. K.S. was a rock outfit from Milan act between 1986 to 1989. Their one and only album released onle on vinyl and it’s in wanted list of many collectors. Musically the band cross between melodic hard rock with some poppy and Italo disco elements with emphasis on keys. The production is not the best you may hear but the songs are quite good with memorable rhythm and some catchy tunes. The singer’s voice is not my fav. Sounds from the deep but the help of the harmony backing vocals fix this problem. The opening  song “On Fire” with a very good chorus, the powerfull ballad “Laurie” and the keyboard driven “Money” are the best moment in my opinion. A delightful note on that album is the song “Hi Bob” with a reggae style as a tribute to Bob Marley. With a better production definetely that would be an amazing album….
