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

I've only recently started giving this a whirl on the CD player, and I'm liking it the more I listen to it. I'm sure you will too. It is definitely on the AOR/melodic rock side of the footpath, and after a few plays it will get to you like the Tax Man inevitably does. 'Tears Are Falling' has a lot of depth and atmospherics to it, whereas 'Sounds Like A Melody' goes in the other direction, with a heap of intricate keyboard lines bordering on a crossover progressive style.

I think this is one of the best new AOR/Melodicrock records that I have heard for the last couple of years.Ultra catchy songs with good vocals from Sam, nice use of keyboards and a good production.My favourites are "Chance to Win" and "Hold On". This is for all of you who like straight AOR/Melodicrock with nice refrains and harmony vocals,like..."Final Frontier", "Change of Heart", "Casanova" "Aviator"...A must for all AOR lovers!

From: Wotty Date: August 14, 2004 at 14:04
Total bubblegum pop/rock.Easy to listen to anywhere,however I keep comparing this CD to Outlands Different World,STRANGE.Anyway the album should keep AOR lovers quite happy,though not sure on the Ultravox cover. 8/10

From: Geoff Date: August 14, 2004 at 23:10
I haven't heard it enough times to rate yet, but this is a pretty damn cool CD. Very much AOR / melodic rock by numbers, but you take what you can get. Cool melodic hard rock, though nothing even remotely new or original. Still, fans will enjoy.

From: Erik Date: February 22, 2005 at 12:13
Man this cd rocks !!! I so much agree with aorjocke. This is really one of the best NEW aor/melodic rock releases i have heard in a long time. Supercatchy songs with great vocals to match it. Damn what a pleasant surprise. 8,5/10

From: Erik Date: February 24, 2005 at 7:21
One very weird song on ths album tho. "Sounds like a melody". Totally out of place here IMO. Thats why the 8,5/10. Good melodic rock and best songs are: Back in love, Do it your way, Saturday night, Feel the fire and the absolute killer song Hold on. Yep surprisingly good album

From: TIM (2) Date: February 27, 2005 at 7:28
Agree about "Sounds Like a Melody", is way more progressive than the rest of the material and the weakest track IMO. This is good stuff though, and fans of Outland/Final Frontier/Greenhouze/Silence could do worse than check this out, although it's probably slightly weaker than the above bands. Layers of keys and harmonies, and despite sounding a little thin, the song quality is generally good. I love the cover of "Dancing..." too. 7/10.

From: Geoff Date: March 21, 2005 at 18:37
After listening to this a few more times I must bring in the Affair comparison which I have felt apparent. Not quite as solid as Affair, but the sound is very similar. There are some really good tracks on this one - well worth checking out.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: December 12, 2011 at 21:25
A decent album...a couple of great tracks in the shape of "Magic Breeze" & "Hold On"...an addecuate voice for AOR and soft rock has Sam Alex...another goodies are the catchy ones "Chance To Win","Saturday Night" and the nice song "Feel The Fire"...82/100

From: hair metal again Date: July 9, 2015 at 9:02
ok release by SAM ALEX with the valuable help of Bobby Altvater who has a certain part in the German scene as a songwriter,guitar payer and producer!the songs are pretty good and you can find some catchy moments,the keys are everywhere and the guitar work ok but nothing blowminding!this little indie will satisfy ,but dont get it by all cost!
