Talk about one AOR heck of a gem in the haystack of todays music scene!
When I came across Care Of Night and their Connected album I was intrigued by the dark and mysterious yet inviting album art. Immediately I had to plug in my headphones and turn it up.
Connected begins with the track 'Cassandra' which caught me off gaurd because it starts off slow but just as you begin to sway along the hard rock kicks in. Next up is 'Hearts Belong' which is a catchy lyric and riff filled delight. My favorite track off the album would have to be 'Those Words' because I think its a beautiful example of what happens when AOR and hard rock are balanced out.
Overal this album was blended just right in my opinion. Had this piece of art been released in the late 80s I'm sure it would have climbed up the charts. Without giving too much of the album away I must say for those fans of Def Leppard and Danger Danger you will not be disappointed. Care Of Night is a rejuvenating and promising band I think with a bright future ahead of them.
