|the truth is that south africa has never been a hot bed for aor music, but every once in a while a band from such country shows up and proves to us all that there are exceptions to the rule and this is the case of stingray.now before i continue, some of you may be thinking...aor from south africa!? they must be crap; right? WRONG!!;let me tell you that this is one of the finest pomp rock albums that i've heard in a bloody long time(and believe me that i've heard a lot of them).this guys claim|

|to be influenced by bands like boston,queen & toto. and that's a fair description although i would also include into that list, starcastle & trillion(1st album).there are some excellent harmony vocals in here and the material is really stunning; no space for fillers i'm afraid! just one great song after another; and that to me my friends is a hallmark of a classic album.for your information i believe this album is a bit tough to find but i know a german company released this album under the|

|These guys sound so much like BOSTON, it's ridiculous. Ridiculously GOOD, that is. "The Man in My Shoes" is total early Boston and "Better the Devil You Know" is another standout. Their best and most Boston-esque song ("Same Old Party") isn't on here, but this is still worth getting.|

|In the Uk about 20 years ago there were a series of 10 singles released by the likes of Saxon, Van Halen, Montrose and this group. All the singles had a printed metal strip around the edge to tie them all in to the set. The tracks featured were "better the deveil" and "where do we go from here". Awesome, both tracks. I would to know how to get a copy of this CD.|

|Right at the moment there is a copy of that CD offered on Ebay-germany but available for all Ebay members across the world.Itīs a pity that the Ebay-monitor on that side only shows the offers listed on Ebay.com!! Bye Markus|

|It does sound like these guys were trying to dial in on the Boston sound, but to my ears they were missing one key ingredient,the mighty Rockman. If more of the Boston sound is what you crave,you can get more bang for your buck with the Goudreau solo,the first RTZ or Orion the Hunter.|

|This one was also released through a German label called :KDC (10007)in 1993 with 11 tracks (> Special version of "better the...")|

|No flag is next to their name, but I hear they're from South Africa. This album looks kinda interesting. I'd love to find audio samples!|

|Awesome, awesome, awesome ... ! And not only because I lived in South Africa many years ago. You should get the reissue "Revisited" ASAP ! Highly recommended for AOR/Pomp fans !|
