What I liked about the record is the voice of Mr. Newman: it’s very raspy, so it gives many songs a more rockin’ edge in the overall polished AOR concept. Yeah and speaking about this: yes you have the traditional keyboards here, the soaring guitars (which I really like – Newman is a gifted guitarist) are there and of course a production without many edges. Modern influences? Forget about that! What you get is typical 80’s AOR, which is played and presented very well.
