With everything going on in the world right now, people have more important
concerns and priorities to deal with, so I am postponing the annual Heavy Harmonies
Donation Drive until later in 2020. Stay safe everyone! -Dan

|This one leans more toward a pop sound, but still has some good tunes. "Straight Ahead" and "Train Rolls On" are super.

|This is the hardest release to find from this band. "Straight Ahead", "Winner", and "Go For It" are the most liked but "Taken Enough" is my favorite from this release. Continues the Shooting Star AOR dominance.

|'Burning' is a good album with some nice cuts including "Straight Ahead", the first single and "Train Rolls On" with one of Gary Westís better vocal performances and a song that ends just way too soon. Not sure about the cover of "Reach Out (Iíll Be There)" as itís difficult to improve on the flawless original, but it works. This album wonít knock your socks off on first listen, but it is a grower.

|After the fabulous debut, I was disappointed with the following ' Hang On For Your Life' & 'III Wishes' releases, make that VERY disappointed. This restored my faith in the band immediately the opening salvos of 'Preview/Straight Ahead' came flying out of the speakers. This still remains one of my fave SS moments from all their albums. The rest is constantly good aswell making this one of the stronger albums in their catologue.
