|Vision 180 plays traditional, pure AOR in the vein of Journey, Nelson, The Storm, Tall Stories and Survivor, with a sound far superior to the one of too many releases by the so-called European AOR-labels. Secure yourself a copy of this cd.

|If you like the samples I've put on the audio page, you can buy the CD directly from the band for $6.50 including shipping (U.S.). Good at any price, at this price it's clearly a steal. I ordered one last night. I think that Journey/Storm/Survivor comparisons are spot on.

|Bobby Loux, the vocalist is a mix between Tony Harnell, Jess Harnell & a little bit of Ted Poley thrown in, that blocked nose & balls cut off sort of style!! So if you can handle that it's very good. For me, I love the ballads but the rockyer ones I don't dig so much. Musically very good and I can understand the VERY high rating.

|Never expected it to be this good. Took a while to get to the UK, but was worth the low price and long wait. Journey are the obvious reference point here, ultra-smooth AOR with an 80's feel and a pretty good sound (certainly puts Hugo's last album to shame). Song-wise they don't always nail-it, but when they do ('You're all I ever Need', 'Don't be Lonely') it's every bit as good as recent efforts by Hugo, Shy etc. If you love 80's pure AOR in the Journey vein then this is for you.

|I ordered this a month ago . I too live in the UK. Hope it is worth the wait. Tim(2) - how long did yours take ?

|Hey rocketron, mine took about 6/7 weeks to get here (I'm used to this delay as order a fair bit of stuff from the US on eBay). Is worth the wait, it's solid classy sounding AOR. The Tall Stories comparison is a bit odd, Journey/Hugo/Shy are better comparitors IMO, and it isn't really packed full of killer songs like the first Hugo or The Storm's albums, but is an enjoyable listen.

|Thanks Tim. Guess I still have a couple of weeks wait. Still - it was very reasonably priced - about £5 if I recall.

|We can add Bobby Loux to the queue consisting of Hugo, Kevin Chalfant, Steve Augeri and Arnel Pineda - of Steve Perry soundalikes. He actually sounds like Hugo trying to sound like Steve Perry! Which isn't necessarily a bad thing! This album is good quality AOR - like Journey with the guitars turned down just a little. Very consistent quality with virtually no songs that I don't like. It's a shame that there's no more from them.
