PROFILE

This is good poppy-AOR from Norway with a tight, poppy and sweat production from Svein Dag Hauge with excellent vocals and great harmonies. You can also smell a sense of west-coast ala Lava – rhythm of love album (the production is very similar actually). Frank Adahl of Edin-Adahl participated in recording background vocals, and sang with Ranveig a beautiful duo ballad called “Two lives”. Huge keys,great production,nice chorus,a touch of pop and west-coast.

“Child Of Love” puts you to dance,”Watch That Girl” is a nice song,”Two Lives” is a highlight,nice duet with Frank Adahl) a singer from Finland),”Staright To The Heart” is a poppy rock tune,”Taken My Heart Away” & “Heartbreaker” are 2 faves,highlights,”Hold On” & “Movin On” both are “on” AOR,”Shame” is a rock song and “Shine A Light” is a smoothie.
