Rescue originated from Frankfurt, Germany, and are a definite addition to GLORY-DAZE, a seat at our Boardroom table guaranteed. If you like Euro pomp a la 1st Avenue, Emergency (both Dutch and Swiss versions), Talk Of The Town and Javan, then these guys will be right up your alley. This is a very full sounding album, great drums, keyboards everywhere (and tastefully so I might add), while the guitars of Schroder and vocals of Neumann are the focal points of the band, the latter doesn't even have an accent either! Bravo.. I've been a fan of this lot for ages, so decided it was time to give them overdue recognition here at GDM.

The Songs
A nice drum sequence/intro delivers us the opener 'Don't Call Me Crazy', a 1st Avenue like workout complete with a powerful sound to boot. Impressed after round one? You betcha! 'Face To Face' leads us in a Talk Of The Town direction, and even with the album highlight - the pristine 'Into The Night', it is so hard to ignore the Talk Of The Town comparison. The commercial ballad 'Hold On' is beautiful stuff, reminding me of Austrian AOR wonders Fahrenheit at their best. 'Be There For You' is a big fun sounding track. Think Terra Nova's 'Come On' from their 1997 album 'Livin' It Up' and you're in the zone. Keyboardist Sebastian Kinder has a bit of fun with the track 'Feels Like The First Time' (no.. not the Foreigner version). His keyboard solo/sequence takes up a good minute and a half before the rest of the band kick in. And a lovely keyboard laced affair it is too! 'Sometimes' is full of punchy keyboard parps while the mid-tempo 'Fire Still Burning' could melt you with luscious melodies instead of pyromania-induced rock. The albums finishes up with the intense power-ballad 'Deeper', it's lighters-in-the-air stuff, where atmospherics abound.

In Summary
Rockwerk put out this platter in 1989, and it was followed up by a subsequent release on the defunct Long Island Records during 1995. The band went through a line-up change at the time, Frank Mentzor coming in on keyboards while Thomas Bak came in on drums. Without doubt this is a quality pomp rock album, and should be in your collection by automatic decree. If not, what the heck are you waiting for? Seek it out now.

Great, awesome AOR album. I love 'Into The Night'.

This one goes for big bucks in the meantime, which is a huge problem for me as I don't own an original yet. :-(

Listening to this recently, I am also reminded of Polish band SYNDIA in a musical sense. A fantastic release this one!
