Background
More hi-tech AOR in the mould of Go West, Modesty and Valet Parking, comes in the shape of German artist Beau Heart. Only just mind you - the whole album is a bit poppy and bouncy by comparison. Nice name for the genre, but not really his of course. Looking the part of some suave cruiseboat captain, our Beau manages to rattle up a half decent set of modern, hi-tech AOR, with a dancy element too for good measure. At first hearing, this might come off as too lame (ok, I agree, it is lame!), but it's classy nonetheless, perhaps slightly down on the excitement level with less in the way of racy guitars.


The Songs
Much of this album did't do it at all for me. Except for one.. the opener 'Dancing On Water', which we've featured previously on our Radio Channels. The rest, is very tame, with only a handful of tracks to tug at the 'attention strings'. Of these, the Go West parping of 'You Just Do't Turn Me O' is a happy-go-lucky sounding tune, the atmospheric ballad 'You' takes on its true shape about three minutes into the song, and I only wish Beau and his cohorts could have written some material in this mould. The rest? Well, I could take it or leave it..


In Summary
I find it interesting that Las Vegas label Retrospect Records have decided to push this album in the re-release stakes. Why, I'm not sure, as this album is hardly gonna set the bomb off for all the rockers out there. For those of you looking for a classy hi-tech AOR affair, this is not the album. Check out Chris Eaton and John Warren instead.
