Editorial Reviews

Special Limited Deluxe Collector's Edition / Fully re-mastered sound shaped from 24 BIT digital technology / 16 page full color booklet, 4,000 word essay, enhanced art-work, memorabilia, rare photos and full band involvement. There have been many great bands that didn't receive the level of recognition due to them, but none have been more deserving than Angel. Cruelly denied the opportunity to bask in the spotlight of success, Angel's story is a tear-jerker in the grandest tradition.

The album cover shows five fairly effeminate looking rockers in their white "angel" outfits. But, don't worry, the glam rock phase won't come until later! These guys are still a helluva band, though not as aerial or pristine as on their awesome debut. There is more punch and crunch in such ballsy hard rockers as "Mirrors" and "Pressure Points". Prog rock and emotional melodies are still there on "The Fortune" and "Feelings" (songs more in the vein of the 1st album). Frank Dimino is a helluva good singer. Punky Meadows is reminiscent of Brian May. Giuffria is busy as ever painting his pictures on piano, clavinet, harpsichord, mellotron and synthesizer. Really, the last ARTISTIC Angel album before the move to a wholesale AOR/"pop metal"/stadium rock format. For me, they were never the same band after 1976. This one is smokin' though, in spite of 1 or 2 duff tracks. If you like the "Angel" album, you'll like this follow up.

This is TRUE ROCK! It's not made for punk-rockers, alternative rockers, pop rockers, etc...just for *rockers*. Lots of loud guitars and just plain, downright ROCK-n-ROLL!!

It's a real shame that this band is one of the forgotten, because this record is a classic. With high energy songs led by powerhouse vocals and dazzling keyboard effects, this is a must for all classic rock fans.

"Feelin' Right" is the straight forward rocker that kicks off the record; and it's a song that utilizes the simple classic rock formula, while incorporating a sharp and resounding vocal track to do the driving. The swirling artistry of Giuffria's keyboards was really what Angel's existence was based on though. Even on a simple straight forward rocker like this opening track, Giuffria's presence is a constant. If it's not trading licks with guitarist Punky Meadows on "Feelin' Right", it's mesmerizing us with a four minute intro on "The Fortune". Every song contains a large dose of over-the-top keyboards from an amazing player. Speaking of "The Fortune".....it just happens to be the second track on the lp. A personal favorite of mine, "The Fortune" is a progressive masterpiece. A song that transmits emotion at every twist and turn. An ominous keyboard intro leads to a delicate acoustic guitar and voice moment, which ultimately culminates in a menacing jam where we hear from every member of the band. As the album progresses, we see the classic verse-chorus-verse formula put into dramatic effect. With songs like "Anyway You Want It", "Mirrors", and "Chicken Soup" Angel utilizes every element at their disposal to make simple classic rock songs sound like something special. The spark in these songs is usually Giuffria's keys, and when it's not..... you can count on Dimino's vocals to keep you entranced. The combination of these two entities is best heard on the eloquent ballad "Feelings".

This CD is CLASSIC late 70's rock. Despite the costumes that these guys put on, it was more or less to get attention like the other 'glam' rockers of the time. However, there was some real talent in this band. Their first CD ('Angel') set things in motion, and this one put it all together for them. 'Feelings' and 'The Fortune' are classic tunes, and set the pace for other bands to mix hard rock with powerful riffs in a ballad format. The other songs rocked pretty well, although arguably not the best floor-stomping stuff of the time.
Either way, Angel made a contribution to the rock landscape. A lot of the stuff that came after this CD from these guys was just not that good, as they just didn't have enough new things to offer in the state of musical transition that was taking place (70's rock - lets replace it with 80's bands like Quiet Riot and Ratt with better hair and sonically pleasing lead guitar solos...). Anyhow, this CD would please most any fan of hard rock of any era.

ANGEL is a great band that only caught on within it's very hardcore fan base and that's all well and said, but the whole album and the ones before cement Angel in all our heart's. I only wish that the band member's try to get in touch with thier fan's that hung out all these year's waiting to hear whether on disk or LIVE! I think you guy's should consider a Tour there would be no problem booking the gig.I am not a crazy person, but as a very good bass player here in new jersey I feel you guy's should try one more time!

While their first album was fantastic on its own, Helluva Band is by far the best. "Feelin' Right," with its driving guitar and the best guitar/keyboard solos ever, is the best cut on the LP. The production style of Derek Lawrence and Jim Sullivan, who also worked with the likes of Ritchie Blackmore among others, is superb. (The "so far" comment above? Angel has recorded a new CD called "In the Beginning" due out sometime this summer. I've heard a couple of cuts and it is vintage Angel!)
