Radar is a five piece US outfit, two parts female, three parts male. It is infectious heavy melodic rock with ample doses of keyboards and chugging guitar. Moore is probably the best known within the band, having contributed to Queensryche's 'Operation Mindcrime' album in 1988. Talking of eighties, Radar's sound has zeroed in on that decade with deadly precision, and for fans of Witness and Headpins style rock, this is gonna be right up your alley.

The Songs
Uptempo efforts such as 'Yours Tonight' and 'Lookin' For Love' ensure the energy levels are set to stun. Midpaced efforts such as 'Somethings Goin' On' and 'Win Your Heart' are high on melody and musical interest. Without doubt, Radar's piece de resistance is the barnstorming 'Shotdown', where Russ Salerno's keyboards spike in a similar fashion to Craaft's Franz Keil. 'Celebration' is pretty good, and starts out like the Witness classic 'Am I Wrong' with strutting guitar and matching keyboard parts, though it ends up sounding like Autograph circa 'Sign In Please'. Only one track, the mundane 'Rockin' slips through the net as far as these ears are concerned, so one out of ten isn't so bad.

In Summary
Ultimately though, it's a pretty good slice of melodic rock. Lots of vocal presence from Pamela Moore and with a new album in the can, we can expect some more fireworks from this highly promising quintet.

Track Listing:
01 Power Of Money
02 Yours Tonight
03 Mirror Mirror
04 Lookin' For Love
05 Shotdown
06 Celebration
07 In Your Eyes
08 Rockin'
09 Somethin's Goin' On
10 Win Your Heart

Fabulous release if your into the above mentioned bands . Pamela Moore's vocals really remind me of the great Holly Woods (Toronto) at times. Songwise they are all excellent, from the mighty 'Shotdown'(this song is the epitome of mid 80's melodic rock, with some great keyboard work and vocals to die for) through to the Total Autograph sounding'Celebration'. To sum up, this cd is a complete winner from the first note to the last.
