Does the cover scream 80s to you? Well, so does the music. Big hooks, big keyboards, big guitars, big soaring vocals… and I would assume at least a few big hairstyles if they had a band pic. On some songs the keyboards are more prominent than your average Journey song, on other songs the guitars are louder and heavier than Journey – but Journey and similar bands would serve as good comparison. Some people call this stuff dated cheese that doesn’t stand the test of time, but I say cheese is good and that time is a relative concept when talking music.
