HEARTPLAY - The Album (2001)

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

I don't know how to recommend you this album enough, to force you to not miss this little gem.
Why? 'Cos it is fantastic!

This band from Finland was the child of Kimmo Blom (now in URBAN TALE) and Sakari Salli, both friends since a long time and partners in a recording studio.
Combining the best of TOTO and the new wave of scandinavian sound (like TOMMY DENANDER works) this disc has it all: catchy songs, huge choruses and tight production, covering Classic AOR, WestCoast, Hi-Tech, Melodic Rock.
The winner here is 'Waiting For You', but ALL are good and first rate, trust me.

Recorded in the '90s (but sounding absolutely eighties) the band tried with no luck to get a label, and finally released this short but awesome recording thru a small local company.
As said many times here, do yourself a favor and Don't Miss This One!
Highly Recommended.
