Profile Hard to find classic release by Michael Gleason, who started as a sideman touring with Kansas, and later became integral part of Kerry Livgren’s AD. Michael Gleason released “Children Of Choices” in 1990 and the ten songs are totally 80s infected and appear with such a brilliant and clear sound (produced by the Elefante brothers) that you must have this album if you are a fan of 80s AOR. T

here are swirling keys and multi layered arrangements like the title track that reminds of a cooperation between Bill Baumgart and Michael Omartian, super catchy AOR tracks with stunning guitars and big hooklines, like “Western World” that sounds a lot like Idle Cure meets Allies or the John Elefante meets Liaison-like “Feeding The Fire”. On “One Breath Away” even Mark Free and Eric Martin. With the help of the Elefante brothers and Ex-Strangeways singer Terry Brock on backing vocals, Michael Gleason recorded a cornerstone of Christian AOR music!
