Issued in 1982, SPYS was recorded at New York's seminal Electric Ladyland Studios with top British studio wizard Neil Kernon (Queensryche, Kansas, Dokken) at the production helm, helping to fashion one of the most arresting hard rock albums of the early 80s.

Spys was a short-lived band that was active in the mid-1980s. The lineup included two former members of Foreigner and some New York area musicians who had previously played in progressive bands. Perhaps surprisingly, their style was closer to Journey or Survivor - radio-friendly corporate rock. The lead vocals were in the mid-to-upper range, with extensive use of harmony vocals in the choruses. Most of the songs were mid-tempo, although some of them rock a bit harder. The arrangements made extensive use of keyboards, giving the music a very full texture. This new edition features digital remastering. The album is quite pleasant and listenable, if rather commercial. The band's main limitation is that they were not very distinctive. Rating: 3.5 stars.

Melodies and more glorious melodies countered with master musicianship and the smooth vocal timbre of John Blanco, SPYS had their own melodic rock style which leaned subtly toward musical pop art prog especially in the "middle act" of a lot of their songs. More "rock" than heavy rock and more pop than progressive, the band's influences are never presented in a heavy handed manner. The middle interlude of "Danger", the listener can close their eyes and got lost in soaring keyboard swells and heavenly sounding harmonies that paint sweeping panoramic vistas in their mind. Make no mistake, THIS IS MELODIC ROCK CREATED BY MUSIC ARTISANS AND PRESENTED IN POP CINEMASCOPE. Songs that deserved to be rock radio staples circa 1982 such as "Desiree", "She can't wait", "Don't run my life", and "Danger". "Hold on (when you feel you're falling)" is perhaps one of the best power-lite ballads melodic rock fans have never heard of. John Blanco on "Hold on" delivers an understated but heartfelt vocal that is both passionate and sincere. The listener is entranced by his every word. (That tune had pop magic crossover appeal and should have been on heavy a.m. radio rotation). Such was the grandiose of material that balanced the musical muscle of dynamic rocker "Into the night" (Al Greenwood's lush textured keys complimenting Ed Gagliardi's driving hitting bass line) with pop-tinged radio friendly fare such as "Over her", "Don't say goodbye", and "No harm done". (Latter songs featuring the songwriting art of the catchy chorus and Al Greenwood's tasteful keyboard flourishes.) The album's sterling sound was shaped by Neil Kernon who never loses the identifiable tone of Al Greenwood's keys or Ed Gagliardi's bass in the mix.Read more ›
