Heavy Harmonies Review
From: Dan Date: March 16, 2003 at 23:50
Having owned Hotwire's self-titled CD from 1995, and being somewhat underwhelmed with it, I didn't know what to expect from their newest effort. I'm happy to report that this is a significant improvement over their debut. More AOR than hard rock, their sound has become more polished over time. Very melodic material! The new vocalist has a more Jimi Jamison-esque voice, which is suited to this material quite well. Quite a few of the tracks have that Survivor/Journey vibe to them.

This is more of an EP than a full-length album, being comprised of 8 tracks plus an edit. The production is quite good. Of note is one of the most unusual covers ever to make an appearance on a rock album: a countryish rendition of AC/DC's You Shook Me All Night Long.

Rating: 86/100

saw these guys warm up for SHAKRA at the headbangers ballroom september last year. Ok rnr and an acoustic version of that ac/dc tracks.the lead singer look a bit like Fabio leone:O)

From: Rycheage Date: July 20, 2003 at 20:33
So in regards to the music at hand, that I can say is very pleasant middle of the road keyboard driven European AOR. The guitars come out to play on a couple of harder edged tracks, but for the most part it is very smooth AOR that occasionally borders on Westcoast. Generally of high quality, although it doesn't break any new ground or standout above a few other examples of the same thing this year. Their ballad version of AC/DC's "You Shook Me All Night Long" is pretty cool though.

picked this one up last year.i agree on the comments of rycheage. just a very pleasent release from the guys. you wont be dissapointed if you can get your hands on it. a solid record. erikhardam@hetnet.nl

One question...are dead this band?? They are great. They must be considered gods of hard rock. I found a release called The Routine but it is other band...bad metal . I wish they come back again kikefort@hotmail.com They have another album released in 1998 called Face Another Day. It is great too. Regards to all. Happy New Year

From: Geoff Date: February 12, 2005 at 21:38
Honestly, what is this? They lost a unique vocalist with a voice you had to get used to, but the fact was that with that voice, he also wrote great melodic hard rock songs. Hotwire's first two CDs are simply stunning examples of melodic hard rock... and this one? Well, it's nice. Nice vocals, nice (whussy) songs. This is AOR and is good AOR, but not what you'd expect from a band as good as Hotwire, capable of much more. Very good disc, major disappointment. Get the first two.

Hi i'm from Germany and I know the Hotwire guys. Their new CD is nearly finished (it took a while ...) and it kicks ass!!! They have some really rockin' tracks on it (he band said itself that "Middle.." should have had one or two more heavy songs) and a great cover of "Hot love" by T.Rex, which is great and remembers me of steaming Def Leppard like "Let's get rocked". Andy's voice is brilliant and the sound (producer is Chris Lausmann, former member of Bonfire) is awesome. Don't ask me when the

I was reading this after checking on it other places and found this rather interesting info on another site. Apparently, there are 2 different versions of this album around. If interested, check out this address: http://www.mothermetal.com/TBS/Bands/Hotwire/Hotwire.htm

From: aorteto Date: October 11, 2006 at 10:07
Cambio de cantante, muchisimas melodias y otro estilo, mucho mas AOR o m/r si se quiere. No hay desperdicio en este disco, todo esta muy bien hecho, inclusive el tema de AC/DC, en plan balada-country.

Lectores de habla hispana,con Uds: el verdadero rafo!!! Solito con sus palabras acaba de definir su personalidad,un "ser"(ya que segun el es extraterrestre)con el insulto a flor de piel,que se pienxa superior a los demas,que menosprecia toda opinion,que dice creer en Dios y falta a cada uno de sus mandamientos. En psicologia su sindrome se denomina "megalomanía" y el diagnostico es "inestabilidad emocional y personalidad insegura". Hazte un favor rafo,CONSIGUE UNA VIDA...

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: July 5, 2007 at 18:18
Hola fan enamorada como estas como se nota que me amas, no soy extraterrestre soy Inmortal no confundas las cosas PALANTE jaja oe esa es la frase de tu pata Chavez ah eres POTENTE que confusion, Megalomania me gusta ese album de Wildkard muy Recomendado, no te preocupes que me llevare tu vida al mas alla, sigue palante y di lo que gustes de mi persona, solo hay algo claro me AMAS lastima que solo me gusten las mujeres, besos y abrazos como el gordo casaretto.
