Florida-based singer/songwriter Connery Faire is blessed with an ear for a catchy melody when she is composing and a classic gritty '80s rock chick voice when she's delivering the goods. On this independent release she teams up with multi-instrumentalist songwriter/producer David Mikeal and the result is an intricate production with its feet firmly placed in grown up '80s AOR complete with lyrics that passionately explore spiritual themes. Whether it's rockers like "I Went To Heaven" and "Praise God" or the acoustic plaintive song of repentance "I'm Sorry" with its gentle twirling strings, Connery holds nothing back. There's some great production work here and excellent mellifluous guitar work which creates just the right feel for the songs and all round if you're into melodic rock with an '80s twist, then this is just top quality. Think about a saved Pat Benatar and you have this pegged!
