Dreamy new wave harmonies & quirky keys mixed with hard rock elements again dominate this record that blast you right into the past, even with the first track. An extension of his previous cd. Highlights include "Sweet Merilee", "Love Is Like A Rock", "That's The Way Love Ought To Be". A very cool album that sounds dated but merits repeated listens just as well as his first record, "Back On The Street".

Pretty nice AOR/Rock album with some New Wave vibe in the songs(Cheap Trick can come to mind actually)..."Sweet Merilee","The Promise"(nice AORish),"Pretender"(lovely chorus line),"That's The Way Love Ought To Be"(AORish)& "Broken Promises"(New Wave)are my faves...83/100
