Heavy Harmonies Review|

|Disappointed by the abomination that was called the last Vixen album? Wondering where the great female acts like Heart or Lita Ford have gone? Look no further. I think we may have a keeper here! Radar features the lead vocals of Pamela Moore, best known for doing the feature vocals in Queensryche's magnum opus Operation Mindcrime.|
This is straight-ahead '80s hard rock. Good use of keyboards and crunchy guitars. I think Pamela's vocals do better on the ballads than the rockers (of which there are a few). Highlights include Yours Tonight, Mirror Mirror (a kick-ass ballad!), and Win Your Heart. The production is first rate. Nothing particularly innovative musically or lyrically here, but it is very well executed and takes you back to the '80s. Isn't that what we're all looking for in the musical wasteland of the '90s (and '00s) anyway? Sidenote: The graphic artist that put together the artwork for this album did one hell of a job! Extremely polished and innovative work.

|Great hard rock in the vein of Vixen, except harder. Pamela Moore's voice soars remiscent of early Anne Wilson. Queensryche fans will remember Pamela as the voice of Sister Mary from Operation Mindcrime. A great disc for any AOR fan.

|Fabulous release if your into the above mentioned bands . Pamela Moore's vocals really remind me of the great Holly Woods (Toronto) at times. Songwise they are all excellent, from the mighty 'Shotdown'(this song is the epitome of mid 80's melodic rock, with some great keyboard work and vocals to die for) through to the Total Autograph sounding'Celebration'. To sum up, this cd is a complete winner from the first note to the last, and one of the best releases of it's type for quite a long time.

|Radar are a band that features two female rockers - one being Pamela Moore, who appears on Queensryche's Operation Mindcrime album. It was recorded in a time where the guys have even better and bigger hair than the females. Damn, I miss those years. Regardless of the amount of hair spray used between the five members, this is a great lost gem of the era - female lead power AOR with lots of hooks, keyboards, guitar flurries and above all else, great melodies.

|Good analysis above guys. This is good 80's type rock with strong vocals. To anyone who bought something like Haven - The Road and you were dissapointed with the vocals (strained / thin) try this. This is much better. If you like Dante Fox you'd probably like this as well.

|Sounds very professional. Great use of keyboards, the whole female fronted band thing...love it! Awesome image. Closest band to the long lost outfit Witness that I've heard so far. Moore is angling to be the next Debbie Davis (Witness).

|Radar is a band I found out about by chance & bought thier cd, fell in love with it right away. I give this cd a +10 for sure they rock!!!

|This album did nothing for me. I thought it would be worthwhile but it is not. There are a few mediocre tunes but not much here. Spend your money elsewhere. I kind of equate this album to Secret Smile. Both not worth the time.

|had this one for a while.great vocals for sure.and all in all.not a bad album.but does it stand up to other female gems?not in my book.not when you put it up against witness aurora laos darby mills.but still worth buying i think.

|This one sort of reminds me of a female fronted Roulette. There are some very average rockers, but also some beautiful melodic gems. 'Mirror Mirror' is a great ballad - awesome vocals, 'Shotdown' is typical, but killer melodic rock, 'In Your Eyes', the awesome 'Something's Goin' On' and the beautiful 'Win Your Heart' are all clear-cut gems too. The rest is pretty filler-worthy standard hard rock, but the gems make it worthwhile. Good CD.

|Buena a regular MR/AOR con voz femenina y la acertada inclusión de teclados, nada que sea para agradar en demasía pero hay Tres temas que me gustan por encima del resto: "Something's Goin' On" la mejor para mí, "Shotdown" y "Win Your Heart". Las baladas "Mirror Mirror" y "In Your Eyes" solo ok. 7.8/10

|So anyway, I heard a sample of "Celebration" over at AOR-FM and I'm very impressed by it. I gotta check this out.

|The best thing here is the band's name.It's known what I think about these voices,the album is really average,I don't know if I'll hold it.Maybe 2 or 3 good songs,the rest is decent okay but nothin'more.Production is acceptable.6,5/10.

|For the likes of Saraya & Harlow fans this Radar band could be wondeful...in fact the band shows powerful beats and solid songs and Pamela Moore is a good skilled singer(she has worked with Queensryche as a backing vocalist)...a matter of tastes but i'd recommend this album eyes closed...talking about the tracks i'd go for these ones:"Yours Tonight","Lookin' For Love","Shotdown","Celebration"(killer song!),"Rockin'" & "Something's Goin' On"...88/100

|i can add that the lone little problem is that the production is a little muddy with the bass guitar.not enough clear at my taste.
