Profile Hyper rare and impossible to find great Indie AOR. Like so many other bands, they were a little late and released an album full of melodic AOR songs, a real great one for fans of 80’s AOR!  Opener “Apple” for example is a good song in the vein of Be Sharp, but it’s far not the best song here… “Wrong Side” for example comes along like Endless meets Seasons In Color with a catchy chorus and big keys all over, “With You” could have been taken from Shelter (great hookline again), while “Surrender” rocks big time in the vein of Curfew meets Shelter and “Secret” comes along with sligzht Hi-Tech elements and some huge keyboards that remind of Fingerprints. “Can’t Say No” and the great “Total Control” bring back pure AOR with a great mix of rocking guitars and smooth keyboards…  A great indie AOR gem – really hard to locate anywhere and a cool find for fans of indie AOR who are looking for obscure AOR bands.
