Review

I remember back in 86 when my friend Tomas sent me a tape of the debutalbum with FM. I was stunned... A masterpiece... at least when it came to the songwriting. The album after Sony had big expectations for the band and sent them over to the US where they worked with the AORguru Neil Kernon with the follow up. I really enjoyed the album as well, even if I remember that I was a little dissapointed to some of the songmaterial though (I had huge, huge expectations). But the main part are (and is) some fabolous extraordinary AOR on the album. "Bad luck", "Someday", "Everytime I Think Of you", "Does It Feel Like Love" and not least "Can Your Hear Me Calling"... phew... Now, the label Bad Reputation have done a mighty fine work and licensed the album from Sony and also added the great singles and b-sides and stuff from this era. "Let Love Be The Leader", "Love Lasts Forever" just to mention two out of seven bonus tracks! Hallelujah.
