SERIAL: 701250126X
YEAR: 1990

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN:

Background
One of the surprise packages during 1990 was this release on the Christian Pakaderm label by the trio called Halo. Now, anything released on the Elefante brothers label Pakaderm should be worth investigating, such is their reputation for putting out quality product including their own Mastedon material. Hailing from the state of Alabama, Halo are no exception. I have to say that despite the overly Christian messages throughout the album, this is one of my favourite discs during 1990. Mostly all the tracks are high class, catchy, and some of those choruses are so infectious. Halo get a helping hand by the likes of Bob Hartman from Petra, Tony Palacios from Guardian, John Schreiner, as well as the Elefante's themselves .. John and Dino.


The Songs
'Jesus Music' is as bright an opening for an album that I've heard in a long while. That chorus is just awesome. They turn their hand to pomp with 'Good Feeling', the keyboards and the rich vocal harmonies combine well. The parping keyboards made famous by the band Europe reappear on 'Lose To Live' while the melodic attack is kept up on the sweeping 'Skyrocket' and 'Time To Run'. The bands slower moments are quite heartfelt affairs, though with religious connotations rather than the 'lost love' scenraios we associate with ballads. In any case, 'Soul Searcher' and 'Language Barrier' are superb examples.


In Summary
If you know their music already, then this is no surprise to you then. For those who wish to experiment, then check this out immediately, as well as their follow up 'Heavens Calling' from 1991. The mere fact that the Elefante's are involved should help you cement that decision.

Ohhhh they 're reminding me of David Lee Roth's Van Halen years...Party melodic Hard Rock/AOR at high class! Don't leave yourself doubting because of their Christian lyrics. Here we have to do with a solid release that is enjoying listening to it! 9/10

Just found a cassette copy of this I had stored away. A good set of songs- 'Good Feeling' is fantastic.
