Profile TWO OF A KIND, in my opinion, is amongst the top 10 releases in 2007. Centred around the velvety yet strong vocals of Dutch singers Esther Brouns and Anita Craenmehr (ex- Night Shade and Fast forward respectively), the mastermind behind this project is the talented Fred Hendrix, founder of two of my favorites bands from the fluffy side of the Melodic Rock / AOR genre: Terra Nova and Aquila.

Mr. Hendrix not only composed all the songs, produced and played bass, but also utilised as back-up band his partners in Terra Nova: Ron Hendrix (Fred’s brother) on keyboards and Gesuino Derosas on guitars, while Vengeance’s Hans In’t Zandt handled the drums. So TWO OF A KIND is some kind of Terra Nova with female vocals at the helm, quite much in the Wilson sisters / Heart ’80s style. This is a stunning, criminally ignored record when released six years ago. Very Recommended, quality female fronted Melodic AORish Rock album….
