First review? well,i think that this album is more indie pop than aor.When i listened to the album bands such as Silent Walk and The Adventures came acroos my mind.Anyway if you are open minded the music of Cry Before Dawn will be a nice experience.Songs?"Witness for the World"&"Yesterday's Girl" are kinda nice for the ears.7/10

Cry before dawn were an Irish band of the 80's who had a short lived good success nationally and also to a degree in the UK. Prematurely tipped in Ireland as 'The next u2' they were never going to be that not that I like u2 personally. I'd rather listen yo CBD. This here 2nd album was recorded and produced in L.A. by Greg Ladanyi (engineer of toto Fahrenheit) and had percussion by P Da Costa, keyboard assistance by Jai Winding etc tec). While from one angle you could say they were not prolific on their instruments they could play and with an emotive style. Also I think they wrote some rather strong songs over the course of their two albums which would definately be labelled hi-tech AOR rather than indie pop though I think I see what the other reviewer is getting at. On this cd you get some great cuts such as 'No Living Without You', 'Last Of The Sun' and 'Your Little World''Your Little World' (all slick sounding hi-tech AOR gems of high order). Other songs are good too but for

me this album is plagued by some 'bad moments'. An odd line or two of lyrics in a few songs is just really bad or an arrangement really annoys. I find song 3 is pretty dreadful listening. In fact I just can't listen to it. Great sound, bad song. Yesterday's girl ok on the ear but not really AOR no I'd agree. It's inoffensive acoustic pop. Witness for the world (the single that a lot of people seem to like) is ok, and of some interest but a bit boring to me and always was. Anyway, basically I think this is an album where the good songs are really magnificent, but the other half is either just ok/good, or downright painful. Their first album 'Crimes Of Conscience' (1987) was actually better in my opinion. Girl In The Ghetto is their best song ever, Gone Forever also good as were most all tracks. Overall the first one was much better feeling as 'an album'. Also, they were consistently very strong live as anyone who saw their concerts will tell you. Search youtube for clips

Listening to this once again and having another point of view about the rate of the album,well it deserves an 84/100 and keeping the description of the music approach of it quite intact...fave ones are 1,2(nice),5,6,8 & 9...
