I'm having a hard time reviewing this album. Arrival, Norway's second is such a great album that I can hardly describe it. I deliberately waited a while reviewing it, because I wanted to know what this album would do after a few weeks of intensive playing. Sometimes you kill an album by doing so, but not this one! The opening track, Givin' It All, is the first sign that we're dealing with something special here. The production is good, the song is how I love 'em best. Melodic, catchy and an instant classic! The same can be said about One Night Alone.It's a midtempoed tune with great layers of keyboards and hooks that could catch a whale, to name but one cliché. Someday Someway is of the same class as Givin' It All. Glenn Pierson's crystal clear voice can handle the whole range between high and low, although he uses the higher regions a lot more than the lower parts. I love that. I've always been a fan of vocalists with high pitched voices. Sometimes Glenn makes me think of Klaus Meine without the accent. Funny thing is that with a little fantasy I Don't Wanna Love You, the next piece of sheer brilliance on Arrival could have been one of the better Scorpions tracks. The riff is huge and the song makes you feel so good, you tend to oversee the desperate message of the lyrics. The next song, Can't Live Without You, is a ballad. A real, old-fashioned, lighter-in-the-air-and-sing-your-nuts-off ballad. This is where I want to compliment Jim Santos on his lovely guitarwork. It's there all the time, but over the last few lines I've been too busy telling you what a great singer Glenn Pierson is. This band has it all! Sendin' A Prayer is very emotional song about Glenn's brother-in-law who passed away at a very young age.Read more ›

Greetings fellow Americans, and welcome to the "Arrival" of
Norway. Available as an import only until now, Norway have given
their souls to bring real rock back in the new millennium. Like a
freight train off of the tracks, Norway ignores current musical trends
and gets down to some serious rocking on "Arrival."
Following the lead of their independent debut, "Night
Dreams," these guys deliver the goods with this 5 star melodic
rock masterpiece. Every song here is a gem, on a disc that features
slick production, soaring vocals, and blistering leads from start to
finish. Legends Journey, Survivor, Night Ranger, and fellow Jersey
rockers Bon Jovi would all be proud to see the AOR torch carried with
such fire. Vocalist Jim Pierson pours his heart into every number,
while guitarist Jim Santos lays down the thunder that would make Neil
Schon himself crack a smile. Add to that a great keyboard sound with
a solid rhythm section and you've got an equation that equals 100%
rock. Standout tracks include "One Night Alone,"
"Someday Someway," "Can't Live Without You," and
the most excellent "I Don't Wanna Love You." If you miss the
music that 80's legends were made of, place "Arrival" in
your cart pronto, and listen to Norway carry the AOR flag with pride.
Rock on Gentlemen!

I'm not sure how CD players work in Japan, and I mean no disservice to other reviewers, but if you think the production on "Arrival" lacks, you need to invest in Q-tips. Norway's first release was an indepedant titled "Night Dreams." It features excellent songs and musicianship, but does suffer from some under-production. "Arrival" on the other hand is a 5-star gem from start to finish, which features slick production, soaring vocals, blistering leads, and the type of AOR music legends like Journey, Survivor, and Loverboy were made of. Neil Schon himself would crack a smile were he to hear the thunder being laid down by Jim Santos on solo after solo on this melodic rock masterpiece. And Glenn Pierson sounds a bit more like Jim Jamison or Kevin Chalfant for that matter, than he ever did Eddie Money (Trust me, I have all of Eddie's discs, even "Where's The Party?"). Actually let's just say Norway are unique in their own right for producing such superb melodic rock in today's watered down musical landscape. If any of the afformentioned names ring a bell and sound good, quit reading this lame review and drop "Arrival" in your shopping cart. Rock On Norway!

This band is an excellent example of the band who are vying to be the next Journey, Survivor, and Foreigner. 3rd track Someday, Someway for example reminds me of Great AOR singer in the 80s Eddie Money. Although some songs are shaky in either production, vocals, or balance in instrument and vocals, their talent and potential to become future rock superstar is unmistakable. If you can tolerate such minor faults, this album will become your favorite rock album of 2000. If you are fans of the 80s rock superstars, this album should be given your feedback favorable or unfavorable. Just give such fledgling new bands attention and keep great culture of AOR everlasting. If you enjoy this band you will also enjoy similar bands such as Departure, The Storm and Hugo.
