Editorial Reviews

2010 album from the British melodic Hard Rock outfit. With the release of Native Sons and Walk in the Fire in 1987 and 1989 respectively, Strangeways have earned a majestic reputation across Europe. Now, after more than 20 years and with more musical experiences behind them, Strangeways are back again with a studio album that picks up where they left off all of those years ago. Frontiers.

Strangeways (with Terry Brock) deliver an astounding collection of rockers and ballads (more ballads than rockers), to the table! NO FILLERS on this one! Definitely an A-1 production! Brilliant hooks and harmonies abound on this one. Exceptionally strong song-writing and, as expected, soaring vocals from "the master" himself, Terry Brock. Ten times better than Terry's collaboration with the latest "Giant" record, which by the way, avoid at all cost. If you are not familiar with Terry check out his amazing solo records, plus his work with billy greer and seventh key, as well as "slamer" by mike slamer! Terry Brock is without a doubt "THE VOICE" of AOR today!!!! It seems almost everybody wants him on their record. He is as smooth as they come, a gifted composer, musician, vocalist, and the nicest guy in rock today. "Strangeways" has always delivered quality productions, good to see them back!

As the title suggests, perfect except It took a little longer then it should have but was through the hollidays.
A very unique production, very AOR. I have listened several hundred times at 320 kbps but I had to have PCM.
Get it!

2010’s Perfect World is (if I’m counting right), the sixth studio album from British melodic rockers Strangeways. It’s also the first Strangeways album in just over 20 years to feature Terry Brock on vocals, which makes this a pretty big deal, at least in AOR circles. When Brock was in the band, Strangeways released their two most memorable and enduring albums (1987’s Native Sons and 1989’s Walk in the Fire).

Of course, it’s not the ‘80s anymore, so fans expecting a return to that sound – a perfectly reasonable expectation given the players and label involved – may be a bit disappointed by Perfect World. Brock’s voice is as clear and resonant as ever, but the songs he’s singing are very sedate. This is extremely pretty, extremely tranquil AOR along the lines of recent Dare albums. There’s not much in the way of hooks, energy or rocking to be found here, which is something of a letdown. Terry Brock’s return to Strangeways shouldn’t have been so…boring.

If you can set aside expectations and just enjoy this for the light AOR offering it is, you’ll find a lot on Perfect World to like. If you look at it in the larger context of Strangeways’ career though, it’s hard to accept this quiet offering. In a “perfect world,” this would be a catchier, more dynamic affair.
