Profile This is a great Melodic Rock/AOR album. Apparently the band only consists both of them with a few additional crew with Norman & Sexton doing all the instrumental work. This album has more of a hard rock or pop/hard rock feel to it, not the best production but better than many other productions you may heard having some really good and catchy uptempo songs you will remember.

The opener “Facing Destiny” is one of them, entwined the storm of melody where Bobby Sexton’s vocal is close to perfection. The “Winner Takes All” is a number that starts with the guitar solo of Neil, but this is also a melodic hard pop number with a catchy chorus and one of those songs that worth the whole album. Bobby Sexton went off to form Icebreakers after this one. This is a must in every serious AOR lover collectors…
