This is not AOR, but pure pomp. Not bad, but there are better pomp records out (Roadmaster, Avalon, even Styx with Equinox and The Grand Illusion,New England,Spy etc.). And their second record ( Venus) is better than this one. But for pomp lovers, worth investigating.

From: koogles Date: January 7, 2003 at 14:23
Agreed with Freddy, the Morningstar CD to go with is "Venus", which came out a year later.

From: Chris Date: June 26, 2003 at 14:30
Who am i to disagree with those two fine people with great taste above.. Venus is definately the one to go for, but this isn't at all bad. Well worth having.

From: Xabofar Date: September 28, 2003 at 13:41
Through the Night and Sad Lady are FANTASTIC POMP SONGS!!

From: Brian Date: October 12, 2003 at 10:48
I agree that Sad Lady is one of the greatest songs of all time! No question. That's the problem with songs like that - the rest of the album just cant compare.

From: Rycheage Date: April 3, 2004 at 1:16
For the most part a powerful blend of Midwestern Pomp and late 70's AOR. Closest relatives would be Boston, Roadmaster and possibly Styx with much more power. This self titled debut turned out to be the first of only two albums from this great band.

From: Jason Harris Date: October 7, 2004 at 21:18
Hello All! It's good to hear the good comments. Greg Harris is the drummer in the band and my dad!

From: Tommy Date: December 6, 2004 at 17:03
Having read these comments, I have decided to give "Venus" another chance, 'cause I've always liked their first one best. "Premeditated Rendesvouz" is a beautiful song and "Through The Night" is as classy pomp rock as the best from Roadmaster/Avalon/old Kansas!

From: pompeius Date: November 23, 2005 at 22:25
I like both albums, but prefer the first one to Venus. Their pomp songs are great, but the rock numbers tend to sound pretty dated to my ears. The first album has a little more pomp, and I think it holds up better. Fave-Through the Night.
