This Canadian band and their one and only album is certainly a stab at 80's AOR, particularly of the pompiest kind. Acts like Russ Ballard, Charlie, Prism ("Small Change" era) and 'Turn Out The Lights' era Tycoon are the major comparisons here. The songs are quite varied, and thankfully not one of them sounds similar. Also the artwork (courtesy of Hipgnosis) is pure genius while tracks like “Behind Your Eyes”, “Video Kids” or “Live Forever” are simply perfect keyboard driven anthems similar to PRISM at their peak (“Small Change” era) meets Russ Ballard's 80s stuff, while “Mean Street” sounds not that far away from the BALANCE cult track “In For The Count”. Pure and classy AOR stuff of the highest order.
