Background
Well we've come a long way from the days of The Partridge Family. Most of you young punters won't remember that TV show from the very early seventies, but I certainly do, especially that bloody bus! Of course David Cassidy was the heartthrob of the show, but all teen fantasies aside, and move the clock forward about twenty years, and we see David in AOR land, with a supporting cast which in equivalent movie terms, would be termed 'stellar', as you can see from the cast list named above. The whole effort operates in the same territory as the Bob Halligan Jnr effort 'Window In The Wall' released the following year.


The Songs
However, in saying that, the opening track 'Labor Of Love' has similarities with Jamie Walters 'Comfort Of Strangers' (from his debut), while 'You Remember Me' could be an Alias track. 'Message To The World' is as worldy an anthem as you're likely to hear, and when combined with the other ballad of note 'Boulevard Of Broken Dreams', the effect is hypnotic. The pair of 'Living Without You' and 'Stranger In Your Heart' are pure attempts at AOR, not unlike Mark Spiro's superb solo albums. The only throwaway song is the rumbuctious 'Hi Heel Sneakers'. While admirable, it's not a good fit, no pun intended.


In Summary
Worth an investigation to the die-hard AOR'sters among you. It does tend to the West Coast side of the Boulevard, and with the lineup involved, I'm sure there's something for everybody.. that is if you like it melodic.

Excellent AOR release! All star line-up and new direction was such a great step in the right direction. However the follow up was rubbish.
