I have always been a bit of an AOR buff, but still some brilliant releases have passed me by. That includes this lovely album by Swedish band Alien, although I have enjoyed the lovely singles "Tears Don't Put Out the Fire" and "Only One Woman". The Swedes released a new version of their debut album in 1989, with two extra tracks added, sung by their new vocalist. The original record from 1988, which is the one I have listened to, is simply stunning, and Jim Jidhed's vocals are just as pompous and full of pathos as these songs require, and more or less all the songs here could have been singles! This album will get plenty more spins in the future!
