From: Teo_3 Date: May 19, 2003 at 20:09
And yet another danish band in the style of TREAT and DALTON with excellent tunes like "So Much for Happy Endings" and the same excellent production and enginnering from the Olafsson-Rasmussen pair with exquisite results.And what do we have here? Another excellent scandi AOR release 9/10.

From: koogles Date: May 20, 2003 at 11:44
Awesome work! Agreed with the above, but the band that Harlot can be compared to best is DA VINCI! Also similar to Winter's Reign, Bad Habit or Return. Lush keyboards and instantly gratifying choruses make this something that every collector should consider. I have almost 3000 CDs and this one still gets plenty of airtime. So if you can find one cheap enough, take a "harlot" home tonight!

From: ROB GARCIA Date: May 22, 2003 at 16:16
sorry guys but i dont agree with you on this one.this album its ok but nothing to shout about,although the song kecia is superb!.i agree with koogles that they sound very much like da vinci.

From: Scandi Date: August 1, 2003 at 20:32
I bought it and I kicked it. It's sooo boring and not like SKAGARACK (for example) as I expected.

From: Scandinavia Date: August 10, 2003 at 10:43
Well, it's a gem no matter what...I agree, it tends to get a little boring in the long run but tracks like: "Out all Night", "Now I See" & especially the hit: "So much for Happy Endings" are worth the album alone...The singer Alex Savage alias Alex Nyborg Madsen is a well-known radio dj in DK these days but he's also been involved in other projects such as: Witchcross, Savage Affair & Led Zeppelin Jam...Some very memorable vocals there. In the vein of Robert Plant at times...

From: Scandinavia Date: August 10, 2003 at 10:46
PS. This album can be found on cd at a very low price at: www.rillen.dk....One of the good things about living in Scandinavia...Cheap rarities...And cheap (but beautiful) girls too!!! Hahaha

From: Motley Date: August 11, 2003 at 12:28
so you pick up cheap girls by listening to cheap rarities scandinavia?*ss* (proost aus Norbert)

From: Magnus Date: September 7, 2003 at 7:34
Great music,great keys!The only weak spot is the vocals..Don't get me wrong.This is well worth picking up.If you're into the scandi AOR stuff..

From: robert Date: December 16, 2003 at 21:36
Otro d esos discos q ando buscando desde 1989!!

From: scandi Date: February 1, 2004 at 17:50
Hi Scandinavia! I would love to live in Scandinavia, if I could go back in time I wanted to live there in the late 80s (say 1986) --unfortunately I can't.. sigh.. Thanx for the album review --I think it's exactely that point that the album gets a little boring throughout listening and it's not uptempo (if you like so). Well, give it a 6,8 out of 10 'cause it's good, solid work after all!

From: George Angel Date: March 25, 2004 at 17:29
Different versions are on the market so all of you record collectors hkeep your eyes wide open. One version is with the Orange logos (KDC records) and one with Blue color logos (Olafssongs records-rare Danish release).For more infos e-mail at wildangelfree69@hotmail.com

From: mrdanielsprod Date: May 23, 2004 at 23:28
Sorry to say that the cover showed here is a re-release. The original CD from 1989, Olafssongs OCD 011, has the text HARLOT and ROOM WITH A VIEW written with blue text. The "blue" version has a nice booklet but I've seen the "red" version as well where the lyrics are as a separate fold-out paper - very amateurish. The CD is lovely though with loads of very strong tracks. My favorite is their sing-a-long - in live siuations - "Invisible Ones",.. which is the bands tribute to their road crew.

From: mrdanielsprod Date: May 23, 2004 at 23:33
This CD is recorded in Sweet Silence, Copenhagen, where Fleming Rasmussen also did work with RAINBOW "Bent Out of Shape" & METALLICA "Master of Puppets"... the very same recording studio...

From: Sergio Date: September 28, 2004 at 13:36
Otra muy buena banda. Hard/aor danés donde guitarras y teclados dibujan las melodias. Los temas que mas gusto son NOW I SEE, OUT ALL NIGHT, SO MUCH FOR... e INVICIBLE ONES. 8/10

From: oliver Date: February 10, 2005 at 10:56
simply great scandinavian melodic rock. nearly perfect, no fillers. 9/10

From: Geoff Date: February 11, 2005 at 23:12
Now here's a band who knew what they were doing!!! F*ck, these guys sound awesome. I also agree with Koogles on the DaVinci comparisons. Awesome musicianship and killer production, with great songs. What more could you ask for? 'Now I see' is a massive melodic hard rock anthem, 'So much for happy endings' is spectacular, 'Bring home your love' is very nice and the last track 'Keica' is a special moment too. I got this for an affordable price as above and highly recommend it!!!

From: DaVinci1989 Date: February 13, 2005 at 9:34
Would like to listen to this one before paying the $$$ for it ... does anyone know if there's a website where I can download any of the songs on this release ?? ... Hope it's as good as Heaven's take me back CD .. thanks ...

From: TIM (2) Date: February 14, 2005 at 3:26
DaVinci1989, I've seen this around pretty cheaply - Schmankerl Records had it for next-to-nothing - and if you like Da Vinci then you certainly should like this. It's a little slower in tempo than Da Vinci, and IMO is way better than the Heaven album you mentioned, and any fan of Scandi AOR should enjoy it. Track 2 is a killer. 8/10.

From: Geoff Date: February 14, 2005 at 4:23
What TIM (2) said - double it!!! I got my copy from Schmankerl Records for about $8 and indeed, it is 10 times the album the Heaven disc is. Definately worth the price you can find it for.

From: Nanteau Date: February 14, 2005 at 13:34
I don't like this album as much as the HEAVEN Cd which is WAY better.. and DA VINCI is surely beyond this ! I even sold my copy but if it's that cheap I'll buy me a new one However, I can honestly recommend NOW I SEE and the BRILLIANT though ordinarily made (so that's 80s like ballad BRING HOME YOUR LOVE !

From: DaVinci1989 Date: February 14, 2005 at 15:08
thanks for the comments ! Well ... for sure I'll end up buying it since I like most of these bands ... and you guys .. any other obscure band to recommend me ? something similar to Heaven's cd / alien's debut (1988 blue cover) ? thanks !!

From: Muddley Date: February 14, 2005 at 15:33
Well, from my own cd collection I can recomend, SABU, Fate, Skagarack, Masquerade, Downtown Clowns, Little Yankees, Bad Habit, Sateria, Mysteria, Zero, Jackal, Banshee, B'Joe, China Sky, Gaeleri, Lancia, Leviticus, PEO - Look what I've Started(Rare), Torben Schmidt ( Its a MUST have cd.)

From: Muddley Date: February 14, 2005 at 15:34
.............And Swedish erotica.

From: z4roxx Date: February 15, 2005 at 8:42
Sorry but B'Joe and Gaeleri are not recommedned bands,IMO.

From: z4roxx Date: February 15, 2005 at 8:44
Both B'Joe cd's are totally crap and I pretty appreciate the Gaeleri debut,decent songwriting but samey songs with few real tunes,IMO.

From: z4roxx Date: February 15, 2005 at 9:03
I can see that I am maybe the only one who love the Heaven cd...I must also admit that this band is really catchy and amazing!

From: Date: February 16, 2005 at 17:15
Well I love Heaven's CD too . Thanks for the bands Muddley I know most of them but never heard about Mysteria or Sateria .. B'Joe and Gaeleri either ...

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: March 1, 2005 at 23:16
Other good scandinavian act, mis expectativas fueron buenas, un album en las mismas lineas de bandas como skagarack, da vinci, talk of the town o glory (no tan bueno como estos 2 ultimos) que practican un rock melodico no hard melodico como dalton o treat, estamos ante otro buen trabajo asi que muchachos si aman lo escandinavo no puede faltar en tu coleccion, en temas Now I See, So Much for Happy Endings y Out All Night las ganadoras. saludos hermanos.

From: z4roxx Date: August 17, 2006 at 13:15
Do you know the italian duo of 80’s called Righeira?They have been success with the pop-hit”Vamos a la playa”.If you want to hear again that melody try the keys melody in the second song,what a marvellous surprise,Righeira has come again!ahahahaha!

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: August 19, 2006 at 13:05
Vamos a la playa ohohohoh!!! yeah i like a lot this song in my country was very popular in the mid 80's and "No tengo dinero" oh! no tengo dinero ohohoho!!! i like Righeira and is from your country eh z4roxx hahaha!

From: erik Date: August 20, 2006 at 7:12
Italo disco hey Z4roxx and Rafo !! hahaha i loved it back in the 80's. Happy Station with Fun Fun

From: z4roxx Date: August 21, 2006 at 12:52
Ahahah W”I Righeira”!!One of the brothers was in prison for drug,now it’s ok I think ahaha!!BTW this Harlot cd lacks of somethin’,it’s a good one but not great,voice is pretty decent.If you take the Jackal/rise cd(jap)there’s the genealogic tree of the members,it’s a pandemonium ahaha!!Hero,Harlot,Lyon,Zoser mez,Geisha and more…..I don t understand nothin’!!!!!!!

From: KurtmanJP Date: March 16, 2008 at 1:56
"So Much For Happy Endings" "Out All Night" and "Kecia" are all AWESOME songs! "Dancing On Dynamite" is also good. The rest, I'm not so big on.

From: rbrigade Date: February 17, 2009 at 18:07
Soooo boring...just cheap AOR. The songs just have no soul. The band doesn't rock a bit. Keyboards are allover but they don't do any good to the songs.

From: erik Date: April 18, 2009 at 16:18
Geoff nails its here. This is 10 times better then the Heaven cd. This is way more in the tradition of the great Da Vinci or Dalton. Fantastic scandi melodic rock. A gem for me 90/100

From: erik Date: April 18, 2009 at 16:29
The opening of Invisble Ones has written DaVinci all over it

From: z4roxx Date: April 26, 2009 at 9:44
Hi Erik!Maybe it's the first time(or second ahaha)I do not agree with you here.I've tried to listen to again this cd after your last comments and I think this is pretty decent,nothin'else.Sincerely I don't really understand this comparison with the norvegian aorsters Heaven who I consider an awesome band and one of my faves because I find a particular feeling in their songs and a magical sounds too.Harlot were ok but Heaven were great IMO.Best regards!!!

From: erik Date: April 27, 2009 at 14:54
Hi Andrea !Listen again and again and again and again ( great song by the way by the mighty and best ever rock band in history in the unmatched frantic four line up Alan, Rick, John and Francis aka Status Quo,albums released from 70 till 1982 are unmatched, thats just a sidestep haha ) and you might like it

From: rick kerch vzla Date: April 30, 2010 at 18:44
Decent album with some good moments.."Spirits" & "Metropolis Children" are really excellent songs,another goodies could be "So Much For Happy Endings","Out All Night" & "Invisible Ones" this one being the rocky track in the album...the other tracks somehow are quite good too.Alex Savage's vocal work is pretty good and it goes accordingly with the music..89/100

From: aorheart Date: November 9, 2010 at 13:37
I like this album very much !!! fantastic Scandi AOR and a great voice from Alex Savage !!! 90/100 You can hear Alex Savage also sing on this fantastic Heavy Metal album from 1984: hope you're ready for some real Metal, cuz this album's got it in spades. Denmark. 1984. Recorded at the same studio as "Melissa" and "Don't Break The Oath". 'Nuff said? ...apparently not. WITCH CROSS sound nothing like MERCYFUL FATE, but goddamn if they don't kick just as much ass. These guys are way more Rock, and kinda reminiscent of a heavier SCORPIONS - like I said, this is serious shit! "Face Of A Clown" is too cool for words - the super loud harmonies in the main riff, great drumming, and vocal lines that are catchy-as-fuck... I absolutely love it. I don't feel like gushing about every song, but suffice it to say that the other 7 are just as cool. Adding to the greatness of this record is the production... it's all over the place. Every song has a different mix, and there's all kindsa shit going on in

From: aorheart Date: November 9, 2010 at 13:41
ohh.. I forgot to say it's the album WITCH CROSS - Fit For Fight (1984), with vocals from Alex Savage !

From: 123charpenay Date: October 21, 2017 at 15:55
typical scandi a o r.a great record for die hard fans of scandi a o r.nothing fantastic,nothing extraordinary but a rare and very decent realise.

From: Japangea Date: November 11, 2019 at 5:46
If you like both earlier Aien and Fate,this is for you.

From: AORocker Date: September 29, 2020 at 1:31
81/100??? This album is some boring, nothing special. Monotone, repetitive...
