FINGERPRINTS - Time Is All We Need (1989)

Requested in "Request & Fill Corner" section...

Sweden band who had enjoyed good airplay in scandinavia and some european countries at the end of the eighties.
A mix of Lite AOR / Westcoast / pop for a good measure.
The overall sound is light and radio-friendly, with sticky choruses and excellent production.

Many tunes are definitely adult pop, sweet to the ears.
But there's some gems like 'Stay The Night', gorgeous AORish, awesome track.
Other pearls; 'On The Run', like a good Michael Bolton song, 'I Want You' a very classy ballad, or the title track, featuring very nice keys and a sing-along chorus.
I don't like the last ones sung in swedish, except the version of 'Time Is All We Need' (Stjaernfall).
STROM & AXELSSON later would become the duo WEST OF SUNSET, another good project.

Not easy to find CD, ripped at max. quality incl. artwork.
