Hiding behind the name Main Attraction is actually the first full length solo album from Norwegian singer / songwriter Paul Bennech Lyngboe. Main attraction on this album is off course Paul's voice, and he proves to be a very good hard rock singer.

The music on the other hand is simple and mostly mediocre melodic rock, with a few exceptions this album never really rocks, and to be honest I do prefer my rock albums to do that... only on a few occasions I found myself rocking to the music, and felt moved by it.

Sure they have written a fine collection of catchy tunes, but not a lot stands out and leaves a mark. With so many great melodic rock bands out there doing it a whole lot better and more interesting, I don't see much room for Main Attraction. But if you like bands like Journey, Def Leppard or Toto, then I suggest you at least give this album a shot...

Recommended tracks: "Calm Before the Storm", "Until You", "Over the Top" and "Blue Jeans Girls".
