I know a couple of the guys here found this too lite for their tastes, but I liked it. 1,000 radios has to be my favorite. Reminds me of a more keyboardish Eddie Money tune. Thanks to Surrf for the great pic..

I really like this band,little hitech sound over them mixed with more straight AOR.Reminds me of bands like "Diamond In The Rough", "The Brian Hughes Group" and "Bystander".Best tracks in my opinion is "Standing In The Rain", "Runaway" and 1,000 Radios.But the track order doesn't agree with the CD I have? The Catalog number is 11 109

From: TIM Date: April 2, 2004 at 17:22
aorjocke, send me an email with the correct track listing. rio1harris@aol.com. I'll adjust it. Thanks.

Found this CD in a pawn shop while passing through Butte, Montana. I only bought it becuase my boy P.J. had it on his want list. This is ultra-lite AOR stuff... I mean sappier than Air Supply. It does, however, sell for big money if you can find it!

Something between BALANX and 80s Starship.Cover art is horrible , but the album itselfs isn't bad. Best tracks : 10000 radios, runaway and standing in the rain.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: August 26, 2005 at 3:30
GREAT AOR/Hi-Tech Album, un Tremendo album, este es el tipo de AOR que MATA claro con ese sonido Hi-Tech, un RITMO DEMOLEDOR que hace mover el cuerpo y te hacen sentir VIVO, un album parejo, es el tipo de AOR que salian en esas peliculas de los 80 desconocidas, gracias Jose por pasarme el corte Strike ya sabia que con un corte asi me esperaba un Tremendo Album... Strike y Standing In The Rain(las Ganadoras) secundadas de Runaway y 1,000 Radios musica asi es solo exclusivo de los 80.

From: KurtmanJP Date: March 20, 2008 at 20:56
The best tracks IMO are "Strike" "1000 Radios" and "Shame Shame". "Runaway" and "Standing In The Rain" are also good. The rest I'm not so big on. Vocally sounds like Steve Perry meets Eddie Money.

From: KurtmanJP Date: September 12, 2008 at 10:43
Changed my mind. "Runaway" would have to be my favorite here!

From: hernansantiago Date: December 25, 2009 at 11:28
Very Good Album of Hi-Tech Classic 85/10

From: juan carlos Date: December 25, 2009 at 14:08
Cool 80sAOR, keyboards rules this album, yep reminds me to Balanx but itīs not a classic in my book. 8.6/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: November 7, 2011 at 21:19
Pleasant album....catchy AOR songs with dosages of Hi-Tech that mainly makes it under that genre more than the AOR as we know it...the best cut for me is "Strike" but add to that "Got To Get Together"(nice),"Runaway","Standing In The Rain","The Edge","1.000 Radios","Maybe Right"(excellent one!)& "Diamond In The Rough"...enjoyable...84/100
