October 24, 2020: ONE WEEK REMAINING in the Annual Heavy Harmonies Donation Drive!
Donations stand at covering 63% of the site's annual expenses... so close and yet so far. The annual donation drive is what keeps the site free for everyone so that I'm only pestering you once a year rather than running ads year round.
If you are not in a position to contribute (which I fully understand), please disable your ad-blocker on heavyharmonies.com. When you click through any of the eBay links, if you buy something on eBay, Heavy Harmonies will get a tiny commission.
Donation buttons are shown below. There is a thread on the HH forum that explains the perks for donating at the $20 and $50 levels.
Thank you for supporting the Heavy Harmonies community!-Dan

|In only one word... AWESOME ! The proof that AOR can be relevant in 2004 when so well done like that. Get a copy pronto, you won't be disappointed at all.|

|What a band this is ! PHENOMENAL ! Every time again they manage it to come with a pure class album ! AOR at its very, very best and highly RECOMMENDED to all fans of the genre. I guarantee you : you won't find any better in this genre. For me : album of the year so far and I don't think many will top this ! BUY !!!!|

|As I read the the 2 previous posts I couldn't agree more with their comments. I am wishing real hard that this band comes back strong and breaks thru this crazy US music market, with a song for a movie soundtrack, tv theme or something to get them noticed.Then their due day in the sun that can't be denied once they fall on the right ears! GREAT JOB DAKOTA|

|No nonsense AOR Release. Slightly Westcoast in places, with a .38 Special feel on a couple of other tracks (which is no bad thing). Good set of songs and a really good production this time (a point which has let a couple of thier previous releases down).|

|Intelligent,thinking mans AOR, perfectly relevant even in 2004.For me,the track "Luck Time And Mind" sums up the album as a whole.Agree production is much better on this album.|

|great stuff, to me, I here the influences of 38, some west coast, and some mainstream country. This is great aor, very similar to 80's releases, this one is a bit laid back but good one and great to see the band still putting oiut quality music!!!|

|Actually this is very very good indeed. I love the songs Back to me, Brothers in arms, Eye of the storm, Holding your own , Shut up and drive and The ride. Real gems. 9/10|

|Oh man, you cannot tell me this was recorded in 2003!!! Wow, well, they sure recapture an AOR sound of old, and I have to admit they do it quite well. 'Holdin your own', 'Back to me' and 'So much in love are all very nice slabs of AOR, as is 'Right this minute', 'Shut up and drive' and 'The ride'. The rest I'm not overly keen on, but that's a good percentage there. All very nice, almost Nelson debut-esque AOR. I like it.|

|Muy buen disco de AOR sin dudas con cierto aire a Westcoast por la producción. Yo lo hubiera dejado en 10 temas sin la instrumental y hubiera quedado Genial, hasta los temas Uptempos me encantan como "Luck, Time And Mind" o "The Ride" siempre con sus melodías de rigor, pero mis favoritas son "Back To Me" "Not Just The Night" "Holdin' Your Own" y "Right This Minute"(balada muy bonita). Jerry y Rick se reparten las voces y ni se nota, coros/melodías y solos de lo mejor. 8.8/10|
