|STREETS - Crimes In Mind [Rock Candy remaster] (2013) |
As we said on the previous post, the two excellent albums from melodic rockers STREETS featuring the awesome Steve Walsh (Kansas) and guitar
master Mike Slamer are receiving a brilliant remaster treatment by Rock
Fast forward ever so slightly to 1985 and the band's follow up "Crimes
In Mind" has production duties this time around being taken care of by
the much acclaimed, and then man of the moment, Beau Hill.
If Street's 1st is a great one, then wait to hear the terrific "Crimes In Mind".
From the start with the wonderful "Don't Look Back", we're blessed with
another slice of commercial Melodic Rock / AOR heaven, showing a similar
approach to the debut but with a bigger, slick glossy sound and a even
For evidence check out "The Nightmare Begins" or "Broken Glass" with the
latter composition taking the form of a power ballad, and again it's a
tune that has me scratching my head as to how it slipped under the
American Orientated Radar at the time of release. Unfortunately though I
guess with the quality of ballads during the mid to late '80s being of
such a high quality songs like this obviously just got lost in the
musical mire ever so easily.
Slamer gets an opportunity to set his guitar ablazing on "Hit 'N Run",
while all the other songs are extremely melodic, catchy, like "Gun
Runner", title track "Crimes In Mind" and the fun "Rat Race".
Although Streets weren't the commercial success their label were hoping for, both albums should have been platinum sellers.
"Crimes In Mind" is an American Melodic Rock / AOR gem from start to
finish, absolutely imperative in your collection. The sound comes
pristine out from your speakers with this 24 BIT digital remastered
edition by Rock Candy, including 12 page full colour booklet, 2500 word
essay, enhanced artwork, photos and new band interview.
Almost thirty years on, it really is time to get back on the Streets.
A Must Have.

|Esta Es Otra De Esas Grandes Bandas No Demasiado Conocidas . Por Cierto El Guitarrista Mike Slammer Años Despues De Esta Banda Formo Steelhouse Lane De Esta Banda Te Recomiendo El Slaves Of The New World Del Año 1.999 . Por Cierto Veo Que En Esta Banda ya Gravaron El Tema The Nightmare Begins Que Luego Incluyeron En El Disco De Steelhouse Lane Del Que Te Hablo. |
Tambien Veo Que El Vocalista De Esta Banda Es Nada Menos Que Steve Walsh (Ex Kansas Si No Me Equivoco)
