Their hearts are in the right place trying to recapture the 80's sound, but with a production level equal to a battery operated tape player, it's not quite professional enough, regardless of the musicians involved. Obviously they threw a couple of modern songs in to be halfway relevant, but with mostly 80's sounds they are more token than genuine. On a positive note there are a ton of brilliant melodies within, and no amount of faulty production can hide that.

I just love this type of music. Brilliant AOR. Similar perfect style like Final Frontier. 8/10

From: AOR freaky Date: February 1, 2005 at 6:06
I fully agree ! Great catchy AOR, sometimes a bit poppy but always classy ! Don't forget there are some ex-members from the mighty Boulevard involved ! So it can't be bad at all ! Recommended !

Another 'From The Vaults' release from years back (don't know the year exactly though). Good solid Canadian AOR in the Boulevard, Loverboy mould, but nowhere near in terms of songs and production. 'Lost Without Love' is an excellent ballad and tops this release for me.

AOR con claros aires poperos y de Hi-tech, buen album. La balada "Lost Without Your Love" mi favorita. La Midtempo "Caught In A Hurricane" me recordó a los Virginia Wolf, "Heartbreak Avenue" bien Hi-Techera buena. La 1,5,6 y 9 excelentes tambien. 8.4/10

Excellent Pop AOR band rather than Hard Rock..in fact is pretty easy listening...if you are into catchy songs then this FS album is a good option..."Love Is On Its Way" is a very good track,very catchy choruses,"Lost Without Your Love" is a very good Pop song,"Caught In A Hurricane" is a beautiful ballad,"No Fun Anymore" is the one that rocks in here,"Can't Stop The Rain" is a nice poppy tune,"Heartbreak Avenue" is my personal fave,AOR with of course hints of pop (this is the way the album is)& "Being With The One I Love" is a good vocal structured song and has nice piano parts...not as solid as Boulevard as there are some former members but still pretty enjoyable,of course if u like the poppier side of AOR!!!...89/100.
