Well i have just listened to this album...what can i a good album even though i'm not too keen on this new modern sound of AOR but evolution is knockin' our doors every single day and music is not the exception..."This City" is a killer track pretty enthusiastic,"When You Believe" is a catchy one,"Part Of Me" has this new modern sound that i talked about with some AOR flavour added to it,"Crazy" is a nice solid ballad,a highlight definetely,"First Signal" has a pretty catchy and nice chorus,"Into The Night" yeah! this one i loved it!,wonderful,far the best for me in the album,"Yesterday's Rain" is a very good song and "Naked Desire" ends the album being a highlight itself... a recommended one 4 sure ...90/100

For starters, for me, this is way way better than the last few Harem Scarem discs, with a return to the more traditional AOR/MR sound and looking at the list of songwriters on here, that should come as no surprise at all really I suppose. 3 tracks from the Martin Bros., 2 from Richard Marx, the same from the excellent Bob Marlette, 2 from Erik Martensson (with Magnus Henriksson and Robert Sall in tow) aswell as a James Christian co-write. All this adds up to a really very very good album indeed and a real pleasant surprise in the recent times of generally lacklustre AOR releases. I look forward to spending many more hours listening to this one.

Just think, this is what Harem Scarem could have been doing. Alot better than the last few Harem Scarem cd's.

Another really great CD in 2010. Crazy & Feels Like Love This Time are my favorites, but just like the album with Terry Brock there so many catchy songs you can listen to. 2010 have been really good year so far. 7.5/10

From: 123charpenay Date: March 16, 2012 at 17:22
great project with harry hess.a real good album not a classic not a masterpiece but nevertheless a fine aor record influenced by harem scarem with a little modern touch.
