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

Well, it's about time that someone writes something about this great band. Their first was pretty good, but this is even a lot better ! With Berry on vocals and Fitzgerald on keys, you can't go wrong and what they have to offer is well crafted AOR ! Certainly a band to check out and I've heard a third one is in the pipeline, but it seems to take a lot of time !

From: Rycheage Date: January 5, 2004 at 22:52
You only have to listen to the first song "I'd give anything" once and you will be singing it for weeks after. This is the precedent set for the rest of the album, and it is an album that will have you mesmerized with it's perfect harmonies, precise guitar leads, subtle keyboards and beautifully timed rhythms. A truly inspiring piece of work.

Where are all the AOR fans ? What do they think about this one ! Me ? I find this great AOR and I'm waiting to hear their third (already anounced for years !) release ! Checq it out !!!

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: November 1, 2004 at 22:11
BUENO SOLO TUVE LA OPORTUNIDAD DE ESCUCHAR EL PRIMER TEMA I'd Give Anything , Y BUENO COMO DICE EL AMIGO Rycheage, QUE LOS DEMAS CORTES SON SIMILARES A ESTE ENTONCES EL PRIMER ALBUM NO TIENE COMPARACION. BUENO HABRA QUE CONSEGUIR EL ALBUM Y SACAR MEJORES CONCLUSIONES. PERO EL PRIMER ALBUM SI QUE ES MUY BUENO.

so great

From: Melodiker Date: March 21, 2005 at 6:50
Amazing ! This is my kind of music ! 9\10

From: Photochromic Steve Date: December 2, 2008 at 13:12
Unlike AOR Freaky, I find this one to be a disappointment after the excellent debut. Only 3 tracks kept me interested out of the 12. They returned to form with the recent "Road to Heaven".

From: Kralli Date: May 3, 2011 at 15:30
Hard to get a grip on. Listened many times and dont know what to think. First song is good but then we havent got a really strong song until number 6, Young Blood, which is really good, uptempo, big keybord, powerful chorus. Production is okey but still weak enough to take notice of it. This is mainly critics to the drum sound. For example, the acoustic guitarr on Call Of The Wild sounds perfect, and there is nothing wrong with the voice of Berry, neither in production nor his technique.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 17, 2011 at 22:31
Ummm sorry AOR Freaky but actually this is a step down in Alliance's career if you compare it with the first self titled release of the band...even though it has some fine moments such as "I'd Give Anything"(catchy),"Missing Piece","Building Wisdom From The Wounds","Young Blood","Gotta Find That Woman" & "Do It For Free"...at the end,just a decent record...80/100

From: Kralli Date: April 5, 2012 at 5:31
Young Blood is a superb track. The rest has almost nothing to offer accept maybe two songs that are okey.
