Dropped their line in the same fishin' hole as Honeymoon Suite, Prism and Loverboy in the early 80s, but didn't get a bite. VERY similar in style to the first Haywire CD, 'Bad Boys' or Harlequin. I like this CD a lot. The layered vocal harmonies at the end of 'Miracle' are to die for. Too bad it's a big ticket item on eBay and only available on the dubious JRR label.

Right on Koogles - One of my all time faves this, absolutely fantastic from beginning to end. When will this and the 'Salute' album get a real reissue.

From: rob garcia Date: November 14, 2002 at 13:36
youre right guys both albums should be released in a proper way.......escape are you listening?

From: freddy de keyze Date: November 19, 2002 at 4:32
Indeed very good AOR, but just not enough to be called classic. But they deserve a decent re-release (full digitally) but there are so much other gems that are waiting to be released properly on CD : Preview, Fortune (pre-Harlan Cage), Limousine, Roadmaster, Zon, Mariner, Westwind, Stencil Forrest, Thrills, Link, even the Styx CD's !!!, etc. etc. There is so much good music released in the seventies and eighties that's worth a real digitally remastering !!!

I don't like it..In my opinion this is not AOR..

From: m2engineering Date: September 25, 2003 at 23:11
This is the best album to come out of Winnipeg, period. I also would like to thing that this album should have been 'BIG' in the USA but management blew it. Just like with Streetheart and Harlequin. It is now 20 years old but the musicianship is still superb. I agree that the e-Bay price is high, and it should be re-released in North America. (www.m2engineering.com)

Great canadian AOR ! I also could have picked out their 'Salute' album ! But there is great news ! The fine people at ESCAPE RECORDS have re-issued both CD's on one, fully digitally remastered ! And we all know what Escape is capable of ! Great job ! For all those searching to great AOR records on one, this is for you ! BUY IT !

From: greatspirit63 Date: December 25, 2003 at 9:19
Vastly superior and much darker than anything Harlequin, Honeymoon Suite, Prism, or Loverboy put out. So much so that they are not in the same category as those bands. Excellent songwriting and performances in studio and live. Too bad they didn't hit it big

Absolute stormer of a release. Very dark kind of AOR as greatspirit says earlier. I love the opening lyrics on the album. It still sounds as fresh today as it did way back when it came out. I've got both the Orphan albums on Vinyl, JRR CD, and now the Escape remaster which sounds amazing. This band should have been huge and the Lonely album showed a massive step forward from the Pumps release Gotta Move which I thought was a little naff! 10/10

Nick C -Same as you about this one, owned the vinyl, JRR and now this excellent re-issue. One of my alltime faves (along with a few others) this is what it's all about for me. Love the Keys especially on this one, as they give it a very original feel, almost new wave'ish in places, along with Chris Burke-Gaffney's excellent vocal & Steve Mcgovern's slashing guitar riffs. Definately one of the best cd's to come out of Canada , and that is high praise indeed when you think of all the competition.

From: z4roxx Date: February 12, 2005 at 23:39
I like Orphan,they played a good aor,IMO.That's their best cd to me,totally is better than the other even if'salute'contains 2/3 absolute gem songs and it's well produced and much more mature than this one.Again,very good band...

From: Kim HP Date: December 13, 2005 at 16:03
I don't think every song is a killer here, but all in all it's a damn fine AOR album. Tracks 1, 3, 5 and 6 makes it all worthwhile IMO... Recommended stuff.

From: rene Date: October 21, 2006 at 15:27
This album is very very good. From melodic ballad like MIRACLE to nearly metal on ALL OVER THE WORLD. Many great HARD AOR songs.

From: z4roxx Date: November 5, 2006 at 11:22
A pleasure to discover again this band.it's difficult to choose their best but I think I can choose this one.Orphan was one of the finest aor bands in the 80's IMO.

From: Refugee80 Date: September 30, 2007 at 10:59
A great album i love the cover too, Miracle should have been a big hit i geuss they just didnt get lucky , really cool pop rock Aor

From: Kindred Date: April 6, 2009 at 0:04
They sound like a cross between Loverboy and The Cars to me. Pretty good stuff.

From: aorluver Date: May 22, 2009 at 15:38
They do remind of Loverboy especially the guitar work.I also hear Streetheart and The Cars indeed. 'Hello' has something in common with 'I live a double life' A very decent 80s rock release

From: rick kerch vzla Date: April 2, 2010 at 21:04
This album will appeal for fans of Red Rider,The Cars and probably Glass Tiger too..'Lonely At Night' is not too catchy for an opening album track but is good anyway,'What Kind Of Love Is This' has a very good chorus,'Miracle' is a highlight,'He Told Me' is a very good song,'Saved By The Bell' has a wonderful beat,'Any Time At All'is another highlight,'Hello' is another goodie,good choruses,'All Over The World'&'Night Parade' are also highlights.Recommendable album if u are into this kind of Poppy AOR bands.86/100
