'Running Out Of Time' was the final album from the Canadian rockers that originally formed in the late '70s. Often compared to the music of rock acts such as AC/DC, the music is driven by powerful adrenaline fuelled rock guitar ("Party In Heaven" and "We Need Love") and direct lyrics. "Black Or White" has the band make its lyrical position clear while "Sins Of The Heart" addresses what is hidden. The album was released in 1987 and this shows a little in the keyboard opening on "Hold On" and the rock ballad style of "Long Time" that dominated the charts around the time. In 2011 they were awarded the GMA Canada Lifetime Achievement Award. This band spoke to a generation and the music featured on this digipak re-issue stands the test of time.
