Artist discography


Moritz is one of those bands back in the 80s that never got the attention they should have like other bands from UK like La Paz, Peroux and Zero Zero to name few.
They just released singles and one EP called Shadows Of A Dream. This is an 8-track album with 4 tracks from the EP and 4 unreleased tracks that has been written by Greg Hart (If Only, GTS, Limehouse Lizzy) together with the members of the band.
This is pure classic 80s AOR with tons of keyboards and wonderful melodies in the same style as FM, Strangeways, Airrace, Shy and Tobruk.
The thing that don’t lift up the grading more is the drum sound that could have been better but songs are damn catchy with great vocals. Can’t Stop Loving You is a fantastic AOR-song with classy 80s keyboard lines and catchy hooklines just like Strangeways.
Place In Your Heart reminds of Wildlife (pre-FM) and FM with a strong chorus and great background vocals. Break It Up starts with dut-dut keyboards and the chorus reminds little of Foreigners Break It Up, great song. Don’t Walk Away is a fantastic mid-tempo rocker in the veins of Shy.
Caught Up In The Action is a stunning AOR-rocker with a fantastic chorus - bring on the air-keys. Despite the drum sound this is a great AOR-album and if you’re a sucker for 80s keyboard AOR like me then you gotta check this out.
