Acacia Avenue - St. 2009 (Melodic Hard Rock) UK

Acacia Avenue is a new band led by Danish guitarist and songwriter Torben Enevoldsen (Section A, Fatal Force) in the melodic hard rock mold and features vocals from Tony Mills (TNT, Shy), Geir Rönning (Radioactive, Prisoner) and Torben Lysholm (Pangea, Mysterell) with drums by Thomas Heintzelmann (Section A, Decoy) and bass from Carsten Neumann (Savage Affair). Home to a clean punchy production, the album is rich in catchy vocal melodies and strong songs.
The style of the album is a blend of melodic hard rock and AOR. Torben spent most of 2008 writing new music with different people and some of the songs went in this direction. He then decided to pursue this particular style and ended up with around 20 songs and ultimately chose the best ones for what has become the debut Acacia Avenue album.

01. Don't Call Me Tonight
02. Hold On
03. An Illusion
04. Jamie's In Love
05. Can't Make You Stay

Max Carl - The Circle 1985 (AOR!!) U.S.A.

Max Carl has recorded two albums previously, but using his real surname Gronenthal. I'm not sure why he changed his name, but it didn't work as "Circle" flopped.
Not that its a bad album, though perhaps a little quirky at times, but a couple of standout tracks make it worthwhile, as do Max's dulcet tones.
One single was used from "Circle" and this was the excellent title track, which appeared in 80's teen movie Weird Science".
Max also performed a duet with Marcy Levy. The track was "Come And Follow Me", and it appeared in the closing credits for another 80's movie Short Circuit".
In 1985 Max also appeared as backing vocalist for Holland's one and only album "Little Monsters".
Then he joined 38 Special for two albums, the classic "Rock N Roll Strategy" and its follow-up "Bone Against Steel".
He was last seen with Grand Funk Railroad as part of the touring band.

1. Radical Prodigal
2. The Lion Kills The Sparrow
3. The Circle
4. A Cold Shot
5. Strategic Land (A Soldier's Song)
