Jeff Cannata,cantaba en el disco de Arcangel(1983),y aqui lo unico que hizo es cambiar el nombre del grupo.No se a que grupo es equiparable la musica de Cannata,creo que le llaman AOR tecnico.Se llame como se llame lo recomiendo totalmente hay temas COJONUDOS como Fortune Teller, Middle of the Night o Images of Forever.Pillar este disco en CD HASTA AHORA ES JODIDO,JODIDO

From: Andre Tekken Date: December 19, 2002 at 16:17
First of all...Fortune Teller is one hell of a classy,classic AOR jewell!This record has an interesting chemestry.Jeff Cannata, from the classic Arcangel!Soft vocals toghether with all time keyboards oriented,quite techno-pop,groovy guitar`s ,really soft AOR,at times I can almost say it becomes a bit progressive.Sum this up with optimistic, futuristic lyrics.Jeff play`s himself multi-instrumentist on this quite solo effort.Extremely rare record!

From: rocket ron Date: October 27, 2003 at 13:30
Absolute Classic.One of the top ten AOR albums of all time

From: AORster Date: April 2, 2004 at 18:14
Absolute Hi-Tech AOR gem, buy it you can find it.

From: Cannata Date: May 4, 2004 at 7:11
A agree. Timeless classic AOR record.

From: Andi from Italy Date: October 19, 2004 at 12:29
Cannata Jeff is one of the best bands ever. Check out "Fortune teller, Hand in hand, and Middle of the night"!

From: Nick C Date: November 17, 2004 at 17:34
Jeff Cannata ... what can you say about this guy, Has he made a bad record??? This is great, Sailing Ships has a fantastic soaring chorus and Will the Sky Begin to Fall is another fave on this. I haven't played this for a bit so when I get home I think I'll dig it out (been too busy listening to Saga Generation 13 for last few weeks!!!). Don't know how hard it is to come by these days but if you like hi tech pomp/aor then grab a copy.

Finnally adding this gem to my collection!!! Strongly keyboard oriented with just fine vocal lines, this work shows overall one thing: CLASS. I would't compare it with his previous work because to me are both timeless and essentials. I think this is an A.O.R. record just for those who are really into the genre: smooth, well written and being extremely picky: with a tiny lack of guitars. Guys by the way I do have to agree saying this one is FU##### hard to find on cd, and pretty expansive too!! I

From: Wotty Date: June 7, 2005 at 14:36
An album that contains all the elements to make a stunning A.O.R.sound.Loads of keys,solid lead/rhythm guitar and strong bass/drums.Quality vocals paired with huge choruses...Nuff !!!!!

From: z4roxx Date: September 4, 2005 at 9:33
Personally I think it’s one of the worst aor cd ever heard,it worths nothin’to me,weak choruses,very poor melodies,a ridicoluos keys,maybe only 2 decent songs,nothin’more…

A little dated this may be (as are quite a few of the 80's releases) but the worst AOR cd ever is pushing the point slightly. This is Typical Cannata in the melodies/structure, so if you are a fan of his previous/latter day stuff (Arcangel etc) then this will definately hit home. 'Fortune Teller', 'Sailing Ships' & 'Hand In Hand' are excellent and the rest is pretty good aswell. Quite hard to get hold of thesedays, but definately recommended if you see it.

From: z4roxx Date: September 14, 2005 at 11:42
Sorry dear friend but I disagree.I like very much his”watching the world”release and it’s almost in the same vein,so I like Cannata style but this one is not good except a cople of songs IMO.We can talk about Gregg Rolie/hands of time-gringo,I find similarity between these 2 artists even if G.Rolie uses a different melody approach but production/sounds are in a typical 80’s era and they remind me a lot to Cannata obiously without any comparrison,G.Rolie worths 10,000 times”Images of forever”for

From: Axe-Machine Date: December 10, 2005 at 13:54
Mr Cannata's finest portrayal of his unique style of AOR. I bought this record for the opening track, Fortune Teller, alone but was pleasantly suprised by the rest of the album. I can't agree that its one of the top ten AOR albums of all time, but it sure is a good album packed with irresistable hooks, top notch production and layer upon layer of 80s style Synth. Not to be missed by any self respecting AOR fan! Reccomended. 8/10.

From: MikeTuinstra Date: March 28, 2006 at 14:15
An AOR masterpiece!

From: Melodiker Date: August 1, 2006 at 18:37
This one is really a jewel.I wan`t the second one too..... 9/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: November 27, 2006 at 21:12
Nice album in the Mr Mister vein.Recently he recorded a new album far distant from the aor style but good.Heard the samplers and liked it.It's kinda progressive though.

From: poproxx2007 Date: November 28, 2006 at 11:28
AOR classic...comes in a close second to the original ARCANGEL debut!

From: Carlos A. Date: December 5, 2006 at 11:52
Este es otro de esas maravillas AOR perdidas en el tiempo, inician con el tremendo "Fortune Teller" y continuan: "Hand in Hand", "Sailing Ships", y varios super-temas mas, el estilo es de la estirpe Hi-tech, algo de New Wave aunque en los coros son algo dulzones y se permiten sonar a.....Modern Talking??, bueno eso se perdona por la magica seccion ritmica de Guitarras y Sintetizadores (hay tres tipos encargados de esto), el siguiente disco es algo mas contundente. Un disco de los buenos.

From: juan carlos Date: July 5, 2007 at 11:17
Grandioso Disco la verdad, un clásico del AOR con clara orientación hacia el lado Progresivo(Quizás por eso a algunos, la minoría por ahí, no los llame clásico) y de Hi Tech como no. difícil dar un tema favorito, en sí los temas todos son muy bien hechos y ninguno falla y eso lo bueno. No soy fan del ProgRockHi-Tech pero está tan bien hecho y con clara orientación al AOR que no cabe en mi cabeza que esto no sea un clásico. Para escucharlo una y otra vez. 9/10

From: YIRO SEVENTH Date: October 21, 2007 at 13:05
AAh claro que si, Jeff Cannata es todo un genio. AL igual que en el disco de ARCHANGEL, aqui hay mucha elaboración, mucha finura en temas como la fabulosa "Fortune Teller" e "Images Of Forever" por ejemplo... ahora, me parece que en este disco se apuesta por una dirección mas progresiva y sinfónica, lo cual quizá sea la causa de que el disco se escuche un tanto frio como algunos dicen. En resumen, otra genialidad mas de Cannata, pero claro, No al nivel de ARCANGEL.

From: Espartaco Date: November 1, 2007 at 7:44
¡Disco fuera de serie! Sin duda, este disco rompe el molde y revaloriza el sentido de la palabra “originalidad”. Pocos discos han logrado cautivarme como lo hizo este disco de Cannata. Grandes melodías fusionadas con un sentimiento melancólico se hacen presente a lo largo de esta obra maestra ejecutada a la perfección. Escuchar este disco es toda una experiencia celestial que nadie tendría que dejar pasar!!! Saludos para todos!!! Espartaco-Rosario-Argentina.

From: liq Date: July 13, 2009 at 9:48
Disco sorprendente y original donde los haya, el estilo de Cannata se podria definir como Aor progresivo y la verdad que nunca he escuchado nada igual, mucha importancia de teclados y orientado claramente al lado sinfonico, Fortune teller, Hand in hand, Middle of the night las mas destacadas. Escuchalo por lo menos una vez .8/10 http://paraisohardrock.blogspot.com/

From: happy2849 Date: November 2, 2010 at 17:12
Another one that I have not listened to for a while, although I know it's some great AOR. It may not be in my top 10 releases of all time, but it sure is close.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: January 24, 2011 at 21:12
As i stated in 2006...Mr Mister kinda stuff but also adding the likes of Mike And The Mechanics,Rick Springfield's "Tao" album sound and mid 80's Yes band ...my fave tracks are "Hand In Hand" & "Sailing Ships" but also there are goodies such as the opening track "Fortune Teller","Break Away" a smooth and beautiful song,"Long Distance" & "Together"...an excellent combination of AOR with some prog moments here and there and some poppy touches too...highly recommended!!!.96/100

From: hair metal again Date: July 13, 2016 at 8:29
verygood release by CANNATA ,a project of Jeff Cannata ! high quality musicianship and songwriting with a keyboard oriented sound with a pomp/prog feel always in the AOR territory!"fortune teller","images of forever" are the best moments!good stuff
