A mix of 80's driven AOR and melodic keyboard driven hard rock. "Into The Night" and "Around" are complete with big choruses and hooks aplenty. "Just One More Time" is a very touching ballad. "Come In From The Rain" and "Tell Me Why" are very easy going and accessible. All in all, an excellent AOR/melodic keyboard friendly CD.

From: MJ (Marla) Date: January 30, 2004 at 21:23
Love the harmonies in "Come In From The Rain". "Around" is just a tad bit "poppy" for my taste, but it's a good song none the less. For me the big *sighhhh* song on this is "Just One More Time" *sniff* Nice production throughout.....I really enjoy this album.

Weeell, Isn't that special! LOL

Actually, that's in the Deep Purple section.

From: Hrudet Date: February 22, 2004 at 18:27
The band has a definite future within the scene if they can afford to dedicate time to their craft. This debut album is one, that along with Outland, represents the old-school of AOR trying to make a go of things in a modern world. This is a really pleasant and easy going record with plenty of great harmonies and catchy songs.

From: Chad Date: May 31, 2004 at 15:49
I didn't care for this album. The vocals are weak. I did like the music on alot of the songs. They would be better off to dump the lead singer. Find someone with a good set of pipes. I think this band has potential.

From: MelodicBoy Date: June 13, 2004 at 1:19
Heard these guys have a bit of Danger Danger sound to them. Is that true, or is someone just misinformed? If they're at all like D2, I'm there.

From: Chad Date: July 2, 2004 at 0:43
Hey Melodicboy- Don't waste your time. If you want Danger Danger check out Jesse Strange. Get that album if you can find it.

From: Tony Date: July 13, 2004 at 13:16
Secret Smile has a new CD coming out in beginning 2005 produced by Arc Angel's Jeff Cannata and rumor has it Ted Poley of Danger-Danger fame may appear on the CD doing some background vocals...looking forward to it!

From: Chad Date: July 13, 2004 at 17:42
They should get Poley to do the lead vocals and dump T.J. Again, the music is very good but the vocals are weak.

From: MelodicBoy Date: July 15, 2004 at 0:47
I believe Jeff Cannata produced the very D2-esque Attraction album, GET UP N SHAKE. With him at the controls and Ted doing backing vocals, we may be on to something.

From: Tony Date: July 15, 2004 at 10:13
I don't think getting Poley to do lead vocals would happen, having him on backgrounds will help! I actually think the vocals are OK within the tracks. We will see what the new CD brings vocally. I noticed that Secret Smile was on tour with Dokken and LA Guns. Has anyone seen them live? PS: Attraction album is very cool and Cannata engineered it, i don't know about producing it!

From: Geoff Date: September 5, 2004 at 7:25
I heard a lot of people say this was good. To match that I had to stand in a room with a lot of mirrors and mention that this CD is really not that good at all. It's decent, and a winner for fans of Norway, I suspect... so if you like the more keyboard luvvy duvvy lyrics sort of AOR, this is a good one for you. I, however, was left far from impressed. There was one song I liked, but can't recall it now. Okay AOR.

From: David Date: February 28, 2005 at 23:14
Any word on the new album???

From: Chris Date: March 3, 2005 at 10:11
I was on their web site and it said the album is due to be released in April. Can't wait! Also, they have been playing with Scandal, White Lion, Enuff z nuff, Dokken, LA Guns, Bret Michaels, Ted Poley etc...some of the big boys! Website also says Poley from D2 was in studio doing some tracks!!! very cool

From: AOR freaky Date: March 3, 2005 at 12:13
Great news, Chris ! Is Cannata involved again ? !

From: Chris Date: March 7, 2005 at 8:01
Cannata is producing and engineering!

From: AOR freaky Date: March 7, 2005 at 12:15
Thanks Chris ! I'm looking forward to their new one !!!

From: 80's Hard Rock Date: February 9, 2006 at 4:58
These guys rock! Superb AOR and my best band from the 00's! If you like 80's AOR/hard rock this is your choice. The 80's are back!!!

**********************************Previo lanzamiento de la banda oriunda de Conneticut, cual habiendo escuchado “Hurry up and wait” solo me confirma que Secret Smile no solo son profesionales, sino que tienen buen gusto por la música. Este es un disco lleno de armonías al mejor estilo Def Leppard,las guitarras eléctricas son ablandadas un poco por los teclados,estos a su vez me recuerdan un poco a como suenan los keyboards de los Starship año 85’-87’,por ende al tratar de definir un estilo la

From: lucasgordon Date: July 9, 2006 at 16:15
banda claramente se inclina por un hard rock- AOR. Si tienen oportunidad de obtener este album, cual recomiendo ciegamente, traten de ponerle atención al soft “Stop & go (follow your heart)”, garantizo placer al oírla. Quien dijo que el hard rock se concentra en Los Angeles? Acá hay otra prueba de que hay bandas en otras latitudes que reflejan el mejor sabor del HR como lo es Secret Smile.

"Into the Night"!!!!!! tremando albun de HARD/Aor con un tremendo tema de inicio que parece ser el mejor, señores este albun actual sera una joya absoluta de aqui a 20 años, tiene unos sonidos y vos todo en su sitio asi como los grandes temas de AOR de los 86's, creo que coinsido con casi todos los comentario en que el tema mas brillante de este albun es "Around" y personalmente tambien "Come In From the Rain"... temasos!!!
