Heavy Harmonies Review|
||Date: March 17, 2003 at 0:01|
|If you're a fan of '80s hard rock ballads, you will definitely enjoy this disc. Very melodic keyboard-driven material. It's not often that you encounter a hard rock band from Switzerland, and these guys are a welcome addition to the international melodic rock arena. There are plenty of hooks to be found throughout. Of special note is the cover of Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here, which is makes the transition to an AOR ballad quite well!|
If I have any complaint with this disc, it is lyrically rather than musically. At places it is painfully evident that the writer of lyrics is not a native English speaker. The overused cliches and idioms come a bit too fast and furious. That being said, however, I cannot fault the musical performance on the disc. The litmus test to me, regardless of any lyrical anomalies, is "Do I hum along to the music?", and "Do I want to play it again?", and the answer to both of these questions is "YES". It is most definitely melodic and gets your toes tapping! Keep an eye on these guys; they show great promise!!

|You can compare the music with the Swiss Mountains - really great!!! This is definitly an AOR-Jewel.

|I like that album very much. Fine melodies and a top voice.

|After reading the review I bought the album at http://www.usedcduniverse.com/purplecross/. All I can say is: hurry up and get this album. It's really cool!!!
||Date: July 20, 2001 at 14:13|
|That album is a smash hit.
||Date: July 21, 2001 at 13:47|
|There is no filler on the album. I guess, Purple Cross will get a deal with a major company soon.
||Date: August 19, 2001 at 23:47|
|Listening to this album, you'll hear a little bit of everything you've loved about AOR - some Styx, Journey, Kansas, and even a little Survivor here and there.

|Empiezo diciendo q la producción es bastante aceptable lo q ya es un tanto a favor q sube a su casillero.En lo musical lo q aqui encontramos es el típico AOR q se está haciendo en estos momentos, o sea medios tiempos muy melosos y sin grandes alardes de nada.Los temas en general estan bastante aceptables pero se hecha en falta un ritmo mas acelerado en algunos cortes como p.ej en Tonight, mas q nada para romper un poco la dinámica monótona en la q se mueve el disco.ACEPTABLE.

|i prefer a bit more guitars and less keyboards but anyways, this is a very good aor/symphorock cd.

|This work is a little monotonous. I won't say it's absolutly dull but it's not as complex as I prefer my melodic-rock (too less guitars BUT as well too less "killer" keyboard-harmonies, tomcat ). It's too "AORish" --that means it bores me a little. At least a "nice" album that doesn't harm anyone . Give it a 6,5 out of 10. Best songs are "Story of the game", "Goodbye", "Don't break my heart" & "You and I" as well, of course, as the PINK FLOYD coversong "Wish you were here" (I woul

|..d love if every song was like this one). Overall advice: FACE FACE with CHILDHOOD DREAMS is better!
||Date: April 18, 2004 at 14:17|
|that is an absolutly fanstastic album. fine melodies and great voice. check also `face face` (musicians of purple cross). i give this album a real 10.

|Do I like this sound? Yes I do. This album is one is one of my favorits. I hope, the next album comes out soon!!!

|Poor lyrics and unimaginably bad vocals from an album I am still trying to live with. The fact that they have not released a follow up yet hopefully means that they are working on making the second album sound a little more credible. Avoid!

|This cd is near to shit dogs you can find on the streets ahahahaha!!So my rate is 1/10,1 because I like keys sound....
||Date: March 24, 2005 at 14:52|
|Good songs, good melodies. For me it's a 8/10.
||Date: March 28, 2005 at 13:25|
|Where do you see good melodies and good songs in this cd I can't really stand mate....Maybe it's the only aor cd you've listened to.It's one of the worst aor cd ever heard,totally boring,without a single memorable part....It's pure s**t!0/10.
||Date: March 30, 2005 at 17:37|
|Don't make it that bad Roxx! Actually I like "Goodbye" (nice but not great ballad) and the PINK FLOYD cover. However, I sold mine 'cos FACE FACE is indeed (much) better. If you really in AOR you should risk a listen, if you like soft-pop do so, but don't touch it if you are a melodicrocker (if not for the cover of P.F.). 5.9/10
||Date: April 1, 2005 at 9:14|
|ahahaha that's incredible that they've chosen a Pink Floyd song for cover,too.Pink Floyd is one of the boriest and awful band in the world for me(for my tastes,don't speak in general ok??).It's not a case that for me this band worth Z E R O.Sorry mate but that's my personal point of view....

|NEW CD IS OUT NOW - HAVE LOOK AT "www.faceface-music.com"
||Date: April 19, 2006 at 8:51|
|Great album with catchy tunes. Not as good as Face Face or O'Ryan (Mervyn Spence' solo albums) IMO, but still very nice. If you are into AOR, you should enjoy this.
||Date: November 7, 2006 at 12:59|
|After several listenings this is not so ridicoulus as I thought,the singer Btw is not good even if the keys sounds are good and some songs is not so bad.I think I’ll hold it for the moment.
||Date: January 8, 2007 at 19:00|
|This album is sensational!!!! An outstanding mix between URIAH HEEP, MAGNUM, PINK FLOYD, DEEP PURPLE, SHOOTING STAR and EUROPE!!!! BUY, BUY, BUY !!!!!!!(10/10)
