Main man behind Deacon Street Tommy Denander has managed to get almost an who's who in melodic rock/AOR to take part on this second album from his Deacon Street project: Stan Bush, Christoffer Cross, Jeff Watson (Night Ranger), Steve Morse (Kansas, Deep Purple), Rob Beach (Winger, Dokken), Bruce Gaitsch (Richard Marx), Thomas Vikström (Talk of the Town), Andreas Novak, John Fahlberg (Jaded Heart), Bobby Messano (Fiona), Bill Leverty (Firehouse) among others...

So to say the basics are in order goes without saying, and this fine collection of melodic rock / AOR songs should give every fan of this genre chills down the spine just reading the guest list. But no worries the songs stand strong and they will surely please fans a lot.

14 songs, including a cover-version of the classic Sweet tune: "Action" and 2 instrumentals. 55 minutes of entertaining rock - my personal favourites are the cover-version, the rather fast "(Kill us) On another Day" and the wonderful ballad: "I Give This Promise".

All in all an OK album for genre fans that I suggest you'd check out if you like the first album and/or any of the bands/artists listed above.
