This was an album that went un-noticed by most. If you were lucky enough to hear it, most would agree it was a fine first effort by this rock band. And even though few did notice the album, the courts did I,m told make them change their name to "Red Siren" , as the name "Siren" had already been claimed by another group. I did not get the chance to buy the group's follow up album. I wish I did, because they like many bands , seemed to dissappear into thin air.

1989's All is Forgiven was the debut album by the band Siren (briefly known as Red Siren). While the Kansas-esque cover artwork might suggest a progressive rock album, Siren's sound definitely falls into the mainstream pop/rock style of the late 80's. I hear a lot of similarities to artists like Private Life, Robin Beck, and 80's era Heart, and singer Kristen Massey's vocals sound like a cross between Stevie Nicks and Belinda Carlisle.

While I don't necessarily agree that this album is worth a 5-star rating, it's still a very solid pop/rock album. When it's good (see One Good Lover, Stand Up, and Rock-a-Bye), it's very good. Unfortunately some of the more laid back songs like How Dare a Woman and the title track tend to kill the momentum a bit and give the album a sense of unevenness. And while the musicianship is very tight, you can't help but wish they had come up with some better guitar hooks to really grab people's attention. It was the 80's after all.

I do agree that this album was sadly overlooked. Given some of the similar artists that made it big in that era, Siren definitely deserved more success, and would have had just that if the record company had done something - anything - to promote the band. Instead the band's legacy lies with those who were either with them from the start or people like me who ran across the disc in a cutout bin and decided to take a chance.

Loved the CD from the moment I played "All is Forgiven" at a rock station in Seattle. If I remember correctly there was a buzz about this CD since it was all digitally recorded (a big deal back then). I could be wrong about that, but it's not the point.

The point is that every song is really strong... great vocals, excellent guitar.. beefy drum work and still one of the cleanest recordings out there. What continues to amaze me is that I can pop this CD in and listen to it over and over for hours. The Siren CD has kept me company on many interstate road trips. The songs stay in your head... sound familiar, but always sound fresh at the same time. Amazing vocals from Kristin Massey with a nice slight echo in the recording.

This CD is a treasure, and I think one of those rare finds. To the members of SIREN...Robert Haas, Jon Brant, Kristin Massey and Gregg Potter... thank you!

As if we needed more proof that there is no justice in the music biz the fact that this absolutely wonderful album never became popular is proof enough by itself! I have loved this for years and would gladly pay 10 times the current asking price if I didn't already have it (since I'd rather have it than all 10 if the current top sellers...).

I would put this in the light rock category. There is a female singer with a great voice. The song lyrics are also great! If I were to compare them with any other similar groups, they would be Toronto and maybe Quarterflash.

So, do yourself a favor and get this while you still can. I'm surprised that there any still available since it has been out of print for quite a while.

If you buy it for nothing else than the cut "All is Forgiven" it's worth the cost. One of my all-time favorites. Bet most people have never heard it. Crank it up for your first-time listen. Unique and great to listen to. Should have been a chart topper.

This is a good CD for this bands first release. I really like Kristin Massey's voice which is very versatile and very easy on the ears, unlike some female vocalist who can sound shrill and irritating. This is a very pop oriented album, although the band looked more Heavy Metal style-wise. "All is Forgiven" (title track) is very different and stands out from the rest of the album. I'm not saying that's bad, it would of been nice to hear more of that caliber of music. I bought this album (LP vinyl) when it was first released in 1989 just because of the song "All is Forgiven" and was a little disappointed with the remaining songs on the album. Truth be told, as I continued to listen to the album I came to like and respect the songwriting and production of each song on the album. It is a shame they couldn't continue on and recover from the law-suit that was threaten upon them from another band of the same name and was force to change from Siren to Red Siren. Don't know what happened to the band named Siren that threatened to sue. They probably broke up as soon as Red Siren started getting popular which is again is a shame because of Red Siren's short lived stint in the finicky music industry. If you like the song "All is Forgiven", I think you like the rest of the album, especially "One Good Lover" which is the second track on the album. I hope I was able to help with my review for "Siren" as I prefer to know them as, since I never heard anything from the other law-suit happy band. Enjoy!!!
