Cool CD from the ex-Shelter man. Fans of Vinnie Kay, Beau Geste, Alien's self-titled etc. are in for quite a treat indeed. Not quite as good as Shelter's mythical release, but still a high-end indie.

From: koogles Date: October 22, 2002 at 11:01
Actually, I was listening to this again the other day and JT's closest musical cousin would DEFINITELY be the band SAY ("Heart Still Beats"). A bit of Freddy Curci (Alias) influence can be felt as well. Great CD.

I'm in a band with this Guy!!!

From: Animal Date: April 18, 2004 at 21:43

From: Dan the Man Date: April 18, 2004 at 21:47
Thats The Drummer Steve and i'm the guitarist. He's my school Chum aka Pal. and yeah... What He Said.

From: Sandiglam Date: May 21, 2004 at 21:34
This is an excellent cd. I even like it better than the original Shelter cd. I would contend that the closest comparison for this cd is the self-titled debut from Mitch Malloy. This cd doesn't quite measure up to that one, but it's still pretty damned good. Definitely worth the $40 it tends to go for on ebay. People pay hundreds for AOR stuff not nearly as good as this...

From: jessica96fish Date: June 25, 2004 at 14:46
cool cd.can't put my finger on who they sound like.but much better than shelter.imo.but if you like your rock melodic. and full of keys and catchy hooks.then this should hit the spot.

I've read all the booklet's lyrics/inserts,for me is not christian but it's a mega absolute release!

From: tomcat Date: January 13, 2005 at 2:02
"answer me now" is truly a masterpiece of a song;..perfect tune..

From: z4roxx Date: February 15, 2005 at 8:07
I consider this cd one of the best aor indie release ever heard.Clean production,simple aor but straight to your heart with great melodies and arrangements.This is a pure true aor gem indeed,I know the price on ebay is not so low but It's a must,IMO.

Check out Shelter's website http://paradisenow.tripod.com for a new and incredibly cool contest!

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: April 27, 2005 at 0:04
Cool AOR cd, la verdad no me llena del todo este disco, un disco fresco alegre con sus toques de Pop pero carente de fuerza y muy dulzon para mi gusto personal, muy hecho como para adolescentes y chicas jejeje y mas por esa voz, pero despues de todo el disco esta en algo, en temas no pongo nada ninguno que me impacte. Arriba bandas como Beau Geste carajo(eso es el Verdadero y Demoledor AOR).

Check out Shelter's website http://paradisenow.tripod.com for a sample audio clip! Please bear with us, the tracks are still not mixed, this is just an example of the direction we're heading! Enjoy!

Just wanted to let you know it's worth hitting the new site... It's still under construction, but the second page has a new background mp3... http://www.sheltertheband.com/ Albums done, printing now... volume = can't get enough...

From: Shelter Vox Boy Date: February 5, 2006 at 20:57
The new 2006 Shelter album "Hands Heavenward" is done! It will be listed here on HH real soon! ...Hopefully...

From: erik Date: April 30, 2009 at 14:59
A place in your Heart is a killer opening track. Sets the pace inmediately. Sing a long chorus with excellent guitarplay. Bck where i Belong is a good melodic aor song. Answer me Now, Jet Black Eyes , Dont let Go, One in a Million, Leave the Heartache and Time in our Hands are in that same upbeat catchy melodic aor style. Great set of songs. Only the ballads were lacking something. Excellent release. 88/100

From: j2aortrade Date: August 21, 2010 at 17:22
A master piece of AOR (imo). Looking for this cd long long time. If anybody can help, have tons of great AOR for trade. Long live HHarmonies!!! j2aortrade2@yahoo.com

From: rick kerch vzla Date: August 23, 2010 at 22:15
Very enjoyable album!!!..a very "in tone" singer...the one that put songs in a high level of commerciality ,"A Place In Your Heart" is a catchy AOR song along with "Back Where I Belong" & "That's Fire","Here For You" is pretty nice and "Time In Our Hands" closes the album decently...not the best album ever recorded but surely listenable...89/100

To all old Shelter / JT Shelter fans, and FYI. The Shelter website is being closed down the end of this year (2011). We (JT Batten (vocals), Jim Kanaris (original drummer) and Jim Beis (the band's first photographer) are doing a fund raiser for cancer research. If you are interested in helping out with a donation, visit www.sheltertheband.com or http://www.conquercancer.ca/site/TR?px=2638534&pg=personal&fr_id=1373&fl=en_US&et=kPYEVq0Umv6Uq-b7eVsGNg..&s_tafId=214963 and read the details. A sealed copy of of the original indy CD/and tape and a copy of the radio release from 2005 are being given to the first 50 doners who donate $50 or more. Help us out as we ride to conquer cancer, and eradicate it in our lifetime! In advance, thanks for any and all support! - JT
