Good AOR like Boulevard meets early Danger Danger.I highly recommend this one!

From: Jim Date: October 25, 2003 at 1:21
Jim from Renegade here. Thanks to Heavy Harmonies for including our record! This is a melodic, rock album made with as much truth and feel as we could do. There are 7 melodic songs (& an intrumental), all with both strong guitar, keys and strings, and good vocal harmonies. There is truth in the lyrics. The CD is well-engineered, and easy to listen too while it rocks. There is one ballad and several different-flavored rock songs. Thanks

From: Rene Date: October 25, 2003 at 12:55
I have to buy this one, yessssss!!!!!!

From: jsm Date: November 24, 2003 at 12:28
Great melodic rock cd like Blvd!! My favs. are "Standing out in the rain" (fantastic song!!), "The best of me" and the instrumental "Betrayal" (killer!!)SUPER recommended!! Thanks to Jim (from Renegade)to let me know where to find it!! jsmnavarro

From: Rycheage Date: December 5, 2003 at 21:29
Renegade are a step back in time – both with the song style, delivery and production. This one for fans of the classic era of the genre and for fans of pure keyboard dominated AOR. The length of the album is a little short, but AOR purists will forgive the band that.

From: Moule Date: December 22, 2003 at 6:52
This is such an awsome album! When I first heard it, I was like "Whoa" The lyrics are so moving! -Moule,

From: koogles Date: December 22, 2003 at 12:02
If you like BLVD (Boulevard), consider this the follow-up to "Into the Street". Yes, it's that good. When I picked this up in a 2nd hand store a couple years ago, I thought it was death metal or thrash. Boy, was I wrong!! I was also thinking my fellow AOR brethren knew about this. Wrong again. Turned out to tbe one of the best kept secrets, an under-the-radar release that only now has received the distribution & attention it deserves. Westcoast AOR at its finest, esp. tracks 1, 2 & 5!

From: jsm Date: December 30, 2003 at 16:18
Unbelievable undiscovered gem from this great Canadian band (released in 2001) in the classic 80s AOR field which sounds like a deadringer for the legendary Boulevard - ultra catchy 80s AOR with a great production (courtesy of Mike Fraser) - don´t miss it [Taken from aorheaven.com]

From: David Rochester Date: March 8, 2004 at 10:48

Jim from Renegade here again. Just thought I'd let everyone know we released another CD "On the Edge" on May 11/04. This record contains 7 previously unreleased songs recorded in the 80's as well as 2 brand new ones. Available at www.aorheaven.com or www.renegadesounds.com.

From: rocky Date: May 21, 2004 at 8:20
Hi Jim..just got it, and it sound great. recomended to all out there.

From: yoshinori Date: May 28, 2004 at 6:09
It is wonderfulIII

From: Chad Date: July 16, 2004 at 18:12
I have both Renegade albums and must say that this one is my favorite of the two. There are different lead vocalists on the two albums. I prefer Marti over Steve. Nothing against Steve but the songs are stronger on this release vs. On the Edge. I do recommend picking them both up as this type of rock needs our support and is very enjoyable to listen to. Jim at Renegade is a great guy and personally answered my emails and took the orders. Check out the albums! You won't be disappointed.

From: yoshinori Date: June 13, 2005 at 18:46
I am a great fan of RENEGADE from Japan. This CD is splendid. I listen every day. I like music of RENEGADE most in the world. I thank Jim who made this CD. Thank you.

From: MATREX Date: July 11, 2005 at 4:06
Hey everybody! Jim here from Renegade and also a band called MATREX, with 3 of the Renegade members in it. "I'll Always Remember" by MATREX has a release date of July 15/05. Hope you will check it out at www.MATREX.ca. Thanks a lot.

From: Erik Date: July 31, 2005 at 5:24
I loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove the song "Big city Lights".Yeah admit it guys if you hear this song you just have to sing-a-long. I am right hey ?

From: Swazi Date: May 21, 2006 at 11:54
Absolutely phantastic AOR CD !! I also prefer this release to their second one. My favourite song is "Don't be afraid of the Dark". GREAT !!

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 7, 2007 at 23:27
Great AOR/Melodic Rock, Canadienses tenian que ser con ese estilo muy especial en ellos y claro Boulevard es la referencia exacta para definir el estilo de esta banda asi que las palabras sobran cuando se habla de esos Legendarios Don't Be Afraid of the Dark(el corte para mi y es que la Magia que aflora es unica), Standing Out in the Rain, The Best of Me, Big City Nights... asi que si eres amante de los 80's y buscas Magia este disco esta hecho a la medida exacta de tus gustos 9/10

From: POTENTE Date: June 11, 2007 at 12:42
Otro album que te robastes de la red, esta vez de un blog. Ya cansas rafo...

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 11, 2007 at 14:16

From: hernanHRM/AOR Date: June 15, 2007 at 20:10
Yo, Yo, Yo quisiera poder jajaj hola maestro jaja veo que tienes muchos seguidores que te quieren mucho jajaj, bueno el phoenix es el poenix de acuerdo asi esque eso nadies lo puede cabiar es el Maestro the hero..

From: BIG-TIME Date: February 20, 2008 at 16:49
Defo 80s AOR but a bit boring for me and nothing really stands out. They just touch on the start of something good then...it falls apart to be honest it's too cheesy "Big City Nights" is good not great but good...KEEP ROCKIN ALL!!!

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: May 7, 2008 at 21:01
A Great AOR album!!. Of course, The Canadian AOR school usually never dissapoints nobody, and this is a great example: AOR in a very BLVD vein, with elements of Melodic Rock of bands like WORRALL and early DANGER DANGER. When I listened this album for the first time i get very surprised, because they sound very similar to BLVD, and i couldn´t believe the fact that a band could sound like them in 2001. My favorite track is the opener "Standing Out in the Rain" but the rest of the album goes in very high levels of quality IMHO.

From: BIG-TIME Date: September 3, 2008 at 20:20
YIRO, DANGER DANGER? no way not even close...KEEP ROCKIN ALL!!!
