Style: Melodic Rock
Release date: 14 October, 2011
Playing time: 51:09

Is this what's called a super duo?? No. no. no, this is a vocal monster duo's master piece with help by amazing song writers like Richard Page (Mr Mister), Jim Peterik (Survivor), Randy Goodrum (Toto), Erik Martensson (W.E.T, Toby Hitchcock) and Robert Sall (Work Of Art) and directed in the studio by the giant among producer's: Matt Sinner. But the main charachters in this artwork is of course the 2 singers Bobby Kimball (Toto) and Jimi Jamison (Survivor), who have known each other for many years and have been working together  on "Legends Of Rock" and "Voices Of Classic Rock". With all the hits that they have delivered with their old bands, both gentleman has their trademark in the voice and they are truly made for adult classic quality rock.

Well, I could write a book on the history of BK and JJ, so how does this long awaited album sound? Do they still have the edge and do they still have awesome voice resources like before? I had quite high expectations after that I heard the teaser on Youtube, and I'm really pleased to the final result. In the first track I must say that this is a classic AOR hit with all the ingredients; great guitars, an amazing rythm section and naturally some super vocal performances by the veterans. Only the track "Can't Wait For Love" lifts this album into the must buy category of discs this fall. Frontiers Records will make alot of Euro's on this rock solid album and it's a good deed that they belive in the melodic rock genre and let the ex-stars show that they still can deliver big songs.

The nice ballad "Sail Away" is a break in the repetouar and in the rocking track "Chasing Euphoria" the vocal duels are exciting - you can hear that they had alot of fun recording this one. The laidback guitars on the album is balancing the songs perfect without stealing the lights from the front men and if I ever will get married again I want these guys to sing the song "Find Another Way" in the church! It's one strong ballad with alot of feelings and emotions. "Get Back in the Game" is a classic rock tune with all stuff you desires from a good track. Extra points go to Axel Beyrodt on the guitars, who does magic work on the album as well as Martin Schmidt on the drums.

My favourite tracks: "Worth Fighting For", "Can't Wait For Love", "Find Another Way", "Hears Beats Again" and "Kickin and Screaming".
