Heavy Harmonies Review|

|This one arrived unexpectedly, and I'm glad it did! This album is basically the predecessor to Purple Cross, which I reviewed about a year ago. I enjoyed that album quite a bit, but I'm enjoying this album oh so much more! This is top-notch AOR/melodic rock! Harmonies everywhere. I still find cliches everywhere in the writing, but it doesn't seem to bother me as much on this album (then again a year has passed since I reviewed Purple Cross; perhaps I owe it another serious listen). The songs seem to grab me more on this album than the followup.|
Production/mix is first rate, and there's plenty of material to tap your toes to. The title cut is a first-rate ballad, and (this is going to sound weird) the lead vocalist reminds me a little bit like George Michael on that track (I mean that as a compliment). Plenty of keyboards throughout, but not overdone. Most of the songs are uptempo pieces. Stylistically I'm reminded of Fair Warning, but without the bombast. I hope this album doesn't get overlooked due to distribution (I'm not sure where in the states you can pick this one up), but any self-respecting AOR fan seriously needs to get this disc. It's incredibly solid. Purple Cross has a new album coming out late this year, and I'm definitely looking forward to it!

|GOT IT TODAY FOR 1 EURO !!!! PURE AOR PRODUCED BY PURPLE CROSS. FANTASTIC KEYS , EXCELLENT VOICE , WONDERFUL HOOKLINES : TOP!!!!
||Date: November 22, 2004 at 12:22|
|Excelente banda de puro AOR, aquel de mediados de los 80, cargado de melodía y estribillos súper pegajosos. El sonido es una mezcla del antiguo HONEYMOON SUITE, los americanos FRONTIER, un poco de FOREIGNER y JOURNEY y el ASIA más comercial. Para los que gusten de estas bandas, traten de conseguirlo. 10/10

|This one was way too soft for my likings and very much in the keyboard filled AOR field. I didn't think most the songs were very good personally, but I can say with complete sincerity that the first track, 'Up to you' is nothing short of sensational. A stunning track on a pretty decent AOR release but they saved the best for first and didn't really back themselves up, IMO of course.

|Descent AOR. And a stunning opener with "Up to u". AOR heaven
||Date: March 21, 2005 at 10:31|
|Screaming is another absolute killer AOR track
||Date: March 21, 2005 at 11:35|
|Surprised to see 10/10 on this one,for me is pretty boring and too soft.Some decent song but nothin'more...There are maybe 100,000 aor cd's better than this oen,IMO.

|This is one of the best albums I ever heard! Great songs!!!
||Date: March 27, 2005 at 10:12|
|nice melodic rock but far away from being brilliant or classic. 7/10
||Date: April 6, 2005 at 14:57|
|It´s a classic for me, It´s not for you. What we gonna do about it?.

|This is very good, and alot better than the Purple Cross disc. The songs on this are quality AOR all the way, 'Up To You' especially, but what really makes this for me is the Vocalist Mervyn Spence (who you may remember from the 2 excellent O'Ryan discs - 'Something Strong' and the mega 'Initiate') a great great voice and a highly recommended album.

|Yeah Good AOR/Melodic Rock Album, como si fuera de finales de los 80, no para ponerle un 10 pero un 9/10 si, y como que z4roxx esta mal al decir que es aburrido y que hay esa cantidad mejores jaja, y es que al tener cortes como Two of Us(el mejor y mas DESCOMUNAL con ese ESTILO, COMBINACION, TECLADOS cortes asi son los que elevan un disco, un tema MAGICO y SOÑADO por un verdadero CATADOR de lo mejor), Up to You(2 otra JOYA), Save the Night, It's Magic, Screamin, Love in the rain...

|NEW CD IS OUT NOW - HAVE A LOOK AT "www.faceface-music.com"
||Date: April 2, 2006 at 21:46|
|This is superb pure AOR.The keys are not properly in some places and the guitar is very light,but man, what precious crafted songs!And Mervyn Spence own the sweetest voice in the business,so clear and beautiful,he's a revelation to me here,one of the best vocal performances I've ever heard.This album MUST BE in your AOR collection.9/10
||Date: November 3, 2006 at 14:34|
|This is AOR. But not when it's at the top. It's very average stuff. I think Purple Cross are much better. But if you like Beau Geste then check it out.
||Date: April 22, 2008 at 13:28|
|If you like soft AOR, this one is for you. The sound is a bit too 'soft' for me, but it's still enjoyable.
||Date: October 11, 2008 at 22:11|
|Great AOR album without a single filler. Reminds me very much of Talk Of The Town's debut. "Up To You" and "Screamin" are killer songs. "Angel In My Heart" "Save The Night" and "It's Magic" aren't far behind. The rest is very good, but not as killer as those 5 tracks.

|Wonderful release or at least pretty pleasant for AORsters at heart (i suppose )...in my case,i loved it almost in its all!!!..."Up To You" is a great mid tempo with a catchy chorus,"Angel In My Heart" excellent,"Can't Stop Loving You" is a beauty of a song,"Save The Night" has a catchy beat,"Love In The Rain" is another excellent track along with "It's Magic" & "Screamin'"...in general lines,a very good effort and if you have to choose between this debut and their second album Bridge To Nowhere,choose this one right away!.92/100

|Esse é um album para ser indicado para aquelas pessoas que estão iniciando no AOR. Ótimo exemplo do mais puro AOR ao estilo Journey e Foreigner. Músicas preferidas: "Up To You", "Two Of Us", "It´s Magic" e "Screamin´". Altamente recomendado !!!

|This awesome AOR release is from the former Swiss band, PURPLE CROSS of Swizerland. With vocalist Mervyn Spence (ex-WISHBONE ASH - PHENOMENA) singer and guitarist, keyboardist and vocalist George Miller, this CD belongs in the collection of every AOR lover. It's better than PURPLE CROSS....... top-notch AOR/melodic rock with many cliches, containing an endless array of potent hooks and memorable tunes, all of which make for a very desirable listen. The sound compares to GOLDEN FARM, NORWAY, PHIL VINCENT and when at their best, to FAIR WARNING and AVIATOR. Every track's a winner and there’s not the faintest whiff of filler.
