Profile The Storm! We all know that the best Melodic Rock and AOR was recorded in the 80s and early 90s and this release is no exception. Quite simply , this is a pure AOR masterpiece. Fronted by the golden vocal pipes of Kristina Nichols and complemented very nicely by the talent of keyboardist / vocalist Karen Childs as well as seasoned session musicians Joe Palmeri , Tad Dery and David Logeman , The Storm is a Melodic Rock lovers dream.

If I have to choose some highlights definetely the opening “Leave Well Enough Alone”  is one of them with sparkling keyboard filled with hooks and a powerful chorus. The guitar driven “I’ll Be Lovin’ You” have massive hooks, killer vocals, with tasty guitars that blend perfectly with rich keyboards. “Broken” is one more powerful song with catchyy chorus in the veil of Vixen and of course “The Last Time”, a song also covered by Mark Free that sounds amazing cause of the great performance with a focus on guitar and the backing vocals of Kristina Nichols.

How this band escaped a major deal is bewildering. Every song is a bonafide hit and a few of these were even covered by other bands of the era. Massive hooks , killer vocals , tasty guitars and plenty of rich keyboard work. I’m sure you will agree this is fantastic material and easily one of the best female-fronted AOR releases ever!!
