Love the album cover, love the intro to the track, love the guitar solo, don't mind the rest of the song, but hate the way he sings "harlekins". It's "harlequins", dammit!


Listened to a few other samples and there's some really nice guitar here and there, but the choruses don't really appeal to me and it's really soft. Nothing up to the awesome standard of 'Tragedy', 'Stars' or 'Wanted Dead Or Alive' from the self-titled imo.

Eleven years since 'Tamorok', I had little expectation of this but turns out to be surprisingly good. Pompous AOR stuff, perhaps in the veins of ASIA, early BOSTON, or maybe ANGEL, and with a little twist of prog touch. I can see how this album will be a favourite for the fans of late 70s rock, but I guess every rock fans should be in awe with the epic opener of 'Harlequins of Light'. Definitely a great tune but there are other superb tracks as well such as 'As Far As The Eye Can See', the westcoast-ish 'Fortune Teller 2' with a massive pompous element, the fast-paced 'California Daze', and the easy listening 'Get To You'.


The small weakness part of this album is on 'Amnesia' which i think is a passable filler, 'Voice of Illuminati' also suffers with average verse, and 'Tonight .. Forever' is also quite forgettable. Thankfully, the last two songs, 'Diamonds and Gold' and 'Legend of The Mary Celeste' are quite enjoyable. Production is excellent, musicianship is quite so-so but Jeff's vocal is still top notch. Good album!

This is some excellent stuff. Probably a bit more prog than AOR but excellent nonetheless.

    • No he can push all he wants, he can bitch and fight and argue, and say the most insane liberal shit he can think of, but first this morning I had to fucking hear it from Karisa, then I get on here to escape her and Glens being a disrespectful motherfucker, we can talk shit, and insult each other, and clown and make fun, and be mean as we want, but when you start talking to me like im a fucking punk then my attitude will follow suit, Ive gone above and beyond to treat HH community with respect and I am about as laid back as your going to find me on here, but if we are gonna be mean, then just get it out in the open, cause I got zero problem with mean, but dont think for a second im not gonna be mean back, theres a huge line between trolling and talking to someone like their a bitch, trust me I know, I do both daily, this is the last im going to say about this, this is my position, so laugh it up, make your jokes, talk your shit, then drop it, fuckin liberals, lol
    • What is the new Covid variant and why is it a concern? Scientists have detected a new Covid-19 variant called B.1.1.529 and are working to understand its potential implications. About 100 confirmed cases have been identified in South Africa, Hong Kong, Israel and Botswana.   B.1.1.529 has a very unusual constellation of mutations, which are worrying because they could help it evade the body’s immune response and make it more transmissible, scientists have said. Any new variant that is able to evade vaccines or spread faster than the now-dominant Delta variant may pose a significant threat as the world emerges from the pandemic. Dr Susan Hopkins, the chief medical adviser to the UK Health Security Agency, said the R value, or effective reproduction number, of the B.1.1.529 variant in the South African province of Gauteng, where it was first found, was now 2 – a level of transmission not recorded since the beginning of the pandemic, before restrictions began to be imposed. For an R of anything above 1, an epidemic will grow exponentially.
    • Now kids... fight nice. This is the Flamefest section, so there's a bit more latitude here than in other areas. I think Glen is deliberately pushing your buttons, i.e., trolling you... especially since he "couldn't care less about U.S. politics"... *ahem*. He know he can push you into a rant. Don't fall for it. Ignore him like most of the rest of the people here do.
    • While I'm in the atheist camp I do not have a problem with most of the people who have faith in God....to each their own...as for Xmas , it is a holiday and should be about family and if religion is a necessary part of it for you, then so be it.....
