This is yet another band I haven't really checked out before, but the reviews seem mostly positive and the samples I've heard seem pretty good. What do others think of them?

 

Any recommendations of albums or songs? Of what I've heard, I like the sound of 'Nowhere To Hide' and may have to get hold of that CD. I might try to download a few other tracks too, so suggestions welcome.

Excellent band. The debut 'Time Tells No Lies' is a NWOBHM classic, although they were always more than just a basic metal band like some that were lumped into that category at the time, much more melodic, great harmonies etc). The More melodic rock stuff from the mid 90's onwards ie. 'To The Power Of Ten' 'Forever In Time', 'Nowhere To Hide' 'The Journey Goes On' and last years excellent 'Sanctuary' are also very consistent releases. Very underrated band imo and well worth investigating

Agree, a very underrated band, such a shame. Their music is very melodic.

 

Time Tells No Lies, Only The Children Cry, Forever In Time, Nowhere To Hide, Sanctuary are my favorite albums.

The only weak imo is 'the journey goes on'. Doogie White on vocals was not the right choice.

Good stuff, cheers. Their CDs aren't cheap, so I might start off with one or two. Any songs to check out if I can't afford all the full albums?

I do like the song JOHNNY COOL, but it never made it to c.d. :(
