PROFILE

Very good and underground melodic rock album with a west coast feeling from this Danish act.  This is the only band’s release produced by Peter Brander and has over the years been an album that many fans of AOR West Coast music has been looking for. Take the best melodies from Return and Stage Dolls, mix them with some Skagarack and the rocking elements from Diving for Pearls and you know how good this record sound like.

Opener “Tumblin” Down” for example is one of the best Scandi AOR songs you can hear! The second song “You And I” comes up with a bombastic refrain in the vein of Bad Habit, while “Watching The World” sounds like pure Return. While ‘All Over Me’ sounds like Diving for Pearls, the midtempo song “Tears Fall” reminds me a bit of Skagarack and their front man Torben Schmidt. The catchy ‘For The First Time” brings again Stage Dolls to my mind…

Late 2007 the album was reissued (Limited Edition, 1000 copies only) with and additional bonus track… I f you fan of bands like BB Steal, De Mont, Roadhouse, Stage Dolls, etc. then you will love these guys…
