There are Nice songs here: "We Hear The Thunder" and "Loving You Is Strange" are Mine, "Twisted" "Why Won't You Stay"(Cool Video) and "Sugar Candy" my other faves. Good production, Good AOR. 8.2/10

Good one the opening song is brilliant.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 21, 2010 at 1:10
Just a nice album,decent,but that's about all..the songs have some kind of Rockabilly sound (not all of them of course).."Why Won't You Stay" is the hit single( and perhaps the only one) of the album,"We Hear The Thunder" is kinda cool one,"Telephone" is like The Stray Cats type of thing..."Loving You Is Strange","Twisted" and "Devil With A halo" are my fave ones...nothing especial honestly but if u wanna try..80/100

this record have a great sound and musically this album is nice to ear but...........the voice of james melvin is a nightmare .his voice have no heat,no emotion so his voice is totally flat.
