Profile Top class Hi-tech/AOR with a poppy touch released on the tiny Power Records-label back in 1989 having excellent production as you can expect with bands of this style. Musically think Bogart Co, Measure and Sha-Boom with a splash of Mr. Mister all rolled into one great mix. All the songs released also as a singles. The album contain a cover of Del Shannon “Runaway” and Kiss “I was Made for Lovin You”. There are two great song: “Close To Your Heart” and “Blaze of Love”, just for these songs this album worth it alone. In 1990 they also released a promo single with the song “Put Your Hands Together”. Except the bands mentioned above if you fan of Shatoo, Time Gallery and Modesty, check it out.
