With this 1982 follow-up to 1980's "Stones", Dan Seals (he dropped the "England" part of his name here) turned in another really strong album. Don't be mislead by the above description indicating that "Harbinger" finds him transitioning to his more country-fied sound that brought him huge commercial success--he's still with producer Kyle Lehning & basically this is "Stones" volume 2. That's not a major problem though, because this album is often every bit as strong as its predecessor. It's also a shame that "Harbinger" was such a commercial flop because, somewhat ironically, it's clearly a better album than either "Dowdy Ferry Road" or "Some Things Don't Come Easy" by England Dan & John Ford Coley.

There's lots of high quality stuff here. The album-opener "Can't Get You Out Of My Mind" is marred a little by some annoying spoken vocals, but otherwise it's supremely ominous, with a cathartic chorus and stinging lead guitar. "In My Heart" is a wonderful, bouncy feel-good tune--it sounds a LOT like ED & JFC's "In It For Love". "Not Every Heart Succeeds" is an irresistibly catchy minor-keyed pop-rocker where Seals makes great use of his falsetto. "It Will Be Alright", though a little marred by the overdone gospel-style background vocals, is a soaring ballad; it had previously been recorded by Airplay, a group that included David Foster & Jay Graydon, though Dan's version here is clearly preferrable. "I Could Be Lovin' You Right Now" is really good, with a chorus punctuated by a nice guitar line. "It's Not Gonna Be That Easy" is a strong display of excellent melodicism and harmonies. "Up To Me" is a little sugary, but still a catchy, breezy feel-good tune.

In another world, this album would be a greatest hits and not a failed solo pop album for Dan Seals. Honestly, this hidden gem doesn't have a bad song on it, so owning the whole album is recommended. Overall, his solo pop work not only far surpasses the quality of his work with John Ford Coley, but also it is more distinctive than his later country efforts. His prior solo effort also produced three outstanding singles, also commercial failures. It should be noted on this album that most of the songs were written by some of the most successful writers and producers of the day, so the effort was nothing short of a final serious effort to break through the glass ceiling. Unfortunately, radio was in transition during the time this was released with the 70's soft rockers being pushed aside regardless of the quality of their music. This included Dan Seals who quickly revived his career as a successful country singer the following year. Regardless, Dan Seals senior pop effort is a rare and glorious album featuring pop gems that were so good at least 7-8 songs could have been hit singles at least on AC radio. The two that were ultimately chosen did not chart, but were certainly Top 10 quality with one of the singles "I Could Be Lovin' You Right Now" co-written by the yet-unknown Pam Tillis (daughter of country legend Mel Tillis). She herself embarked the following year on her own failed pop album. While the songs on the album cannot be described as 100% original in their sound, the melodies are tight, rich and strong making the whole album musical bliss. However, it should be noted to Dan Seals' country fans that this is NOT a country album.Read more ›
