The year was 1999. Music absolutely sucked. I was in Sam Goody at the Marley Station Mall in Maryland when I stumbled upon a cool looking band called Attraction. I loved the song titles and the band looked straight out of 1988. But could the music back up the look?

Yes indeed. This was by far my favorite late 90's release. Actual good quality melodic hard rock. 

Here are some of the highlights: (only 2 songs found but third video posted is the full album)

Not a bad disc with a few stand out moments,picked this up from Kivel at the time,but you're right about this being released when this type of music was not in fashion ...except for people like us...love the title track though.

One of my favourite albums... I love it. Everything's awesome on it. I always assumed it was recorded in the late 80s or early 90s and not released until 1999?

Apparently all the tracks was recorded between 1988 and 1991 - Multiple line up changes and the start of the grunge scene really sunk these guys. An EP was released and sold at their shows in 1992 containing the songs ‘Get Up N’ Shake’, ‘Save Me Now’, ‘Things Were Better’ and ‘Next Time‘. 
Kivel then picked this up in 1999 and gave it the release it deserved. 

Killer hard rock release.. think I’ll spin this one again today.
