The band was formed by ex-Vandenberg drummer,Jos Zoomer and pre-Vengeance / Elegy,Ian Parry.Nice melodic Hard Rock like later Ian's solos but more melodic.

From: aorteto Date: December 15, 2006 at 15:15
A pair of fillers but a lot of winners ( TRAPPED BY A FEELING, DREAMIN`IT ALL, LAY DOWN YOUR ARMS, etc. ). It`s like ZINATRA, 1ST. AVENUE, VANDENBERG or IAN PARRY ( solo ). The production is so-so but they are demos from the 80s. Not a classic, but it`s pretty good. Try to get it !

Melodic HardRock/AOR del bueno y al menos la mitad del disco está hecho a la medida, lástima lo de la producción pero se entiende pues son demos y demás y me parece increíble ya que depurando y poniendo solo las mejores y con una excelente producción esto sería un clásico. La 5,7,8,10,11,13,14,16 y 17 las mejores. La balada "Still The One" bien emotiva y me recordó a Alien y Cheap Trick, "Spend The Night" "Broken Heart" "When I´m Away.." y "Once Bitten.." en AOR total. Otra perla olvidada. 8/10

This cd have some good tunes, and Parrys's singing very well. Not a classic, but worth to have it. 7/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 22, 2011 at 22:23
This is simply awesome!!!...this band deserved more IMHO....killer tracks for me are "All Night Long(Give Me Your Love)","Hollywood Star" & "Trapped By A Feeling"(AOR)...but tracks 1,2,5,13,14 & 17 are really worth ones too...a band that practiced Melodic Hard Rock and flirted with AOR(reminded me of Magnum)and with a vocalist that sounds like Bob Catley(Magnum) & Jon Deverill(Tygers Of Pan Tang)...highly recomemded stuff...94/100

From: sweet333 Date: March 6, 2012 at 13:58
very good melodic hard rock, with aor bits in it. very good melodies, not like Tall Stories, this cd is more Farrcry, catchy i must say.
