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!

Not their best release, but Dakota is such a quality AOR/westcoast act, that even a 'less' good release is superior to 99% of the current releases ! This is timeless AOR ! Brilliant band, SO UNDERRATED, especially in their home country. Wake up, America ! You have jewels, but you don't see it !

From: Geoff Date: March 2, 2005 at 5:41
This one was okay, but pretty average. I can do without it.

From: AOR freaky Date: March 2, 2005 at 7:10
O.K., not their best, but as said before ! This is a BRILLIANT band, but SO UNDERRATED IMO ! If you can do without this one, Geoff, I can't imagine you can do it withhout their PHENOMENAL CLASSIC 'RUNAWAY' !!!!!!!! ?

Pero q Pasote!!! Como me Gusta este Super Grupazo!!! Quizas mi disco d A.O.R favorito d todo el flojisimo año 1996. Y como no podia ser d otra manera con temazos como: Remember Me, Mr.Lucky (Alucinante), One For The Heart, Heaven Or Hell, el Baladon Forever To Never, Don't Stop Believin... y asi todas!! 9 d 10!!

From: Melodiker Date: August 10, 2006 at 18:38
Gutes Album von Dakota,aber die Jungs waren schon mal besser ! Mir fehlen hier die richtigen Knaller.Alles brav und etwas bieder !7,5/10

From: juan carlos Date: December 14, 2007 at 22:55
AOR bien Lite, baladas y otros Uptempos, está variadito y con unos bonitos estribillos o coros que son lo mejor del disco pero no es su mejor trabajo en mi opinión. "Forever To Never" Hermosa baladita Mi favorita, y "These Eyes" "One For The Heart" mis preferidas. Bueno. 8/10

From: DanDare Date: October 23, 2010 at 7:55
I have to say that I thought this was decidedly average release. Clearly the musicianship is excellent and the production is fine, which means that the quality of the songs was not there. None of the songs standout and the whole album passes you by without really hooking you in. Shame.
