When right off the bat you’ve got names like Dennis DeYoung, Mike Reno, Kevin Chalfant, Danny Vaughn, and Toby Hitchcock you’re pretty well-gonna bet I’m going to be down for this album
“Fearless” is an excellent album that delivers AOR on a champion’s league level
Musically the set was like a roller coaster. They would bring you up and down and then up again and then down all the while wrapping us around like the snake up in the tree that only hears what he sees.
Well you know, if we hadn’t have come back with Vital Signs and Proved that we could do it on our own I would say that it’s a bad idea, but that was kind of our proof that we didn’t need Stallone although we appreciated everything that he did for us. We didn’t need him to be a successful band.
If you like your rock dangerously heavy on the cheesy side, this record will have your arteries bulging with delight. I personally think it should carry a health warning.
NEVER TOO LATE has a much more modern melodic hard rock feel to it in most places…
try as I might ‘potential’ is certainly the most fitting word for this album by far. Because it’s only the second album from Italian AOR-sters BAD MEMORIES, there’s still enough time to get it right.
I have said in previous reviews that this guy is one of the best AOR vocalists ever, and I hear enough on this album to still be confident in saying that…
I guess I expected that it was going to be good but it took me a few listens to try to dig into this record because at first it seemed to simple and to their credit the songs structurally are not all the same sound even though they are still Melodic Rock/AOR at heart they have managed to sound refreshing and not too repetitive.
