Background
Following in the best footsteps of a long line of Australian acts comes a trio of brothers from Sydney aptly named the Robertson Brothers. This has got 'big time' written all over it, in fact most of the album was recorded in Nashville, with the remainder recorded locally in Sydney. The music is great melodic AOR and calls upon influences such as fellow Australians Rick Price and Southern Sons, and US melodic band Venice. The brothers harmony vocals at times border on stunning! There are some other special guests on the album, including guitarists Phil Buckle from Southern Sons, and Rex Goh (ex Air Supply and QED).


The Songs
From an AOR purists viewpoint, there are a couple of standout aspects one should be aware of; the great Dann Huff plays guitar on six of the tracks (those recorded in Nashville), while the other feature is a cover of Stan Meissner's 'River Of Fire' (from his 1992 'Undertow' album) in which Dann appears! All the songs are catchy and singable, with memorable choruses, and the musicianship is as tight as a proverbial ducks arse! Standouts? Well there are too many .. 'Don't Lie Down', 'I Know Why', 'All My Life', This Tide' and 'Circus' are all great moments.


In Summary
Though they are a local institution in their native Australia (theme song to the TV series 'Home And Away'), they are not that well known elsewhere. But I'm sure you (like me) will be astounded by the harmony vocals of these boys. Just take it from me .. the whole album is great.
