A spin off project of popular AOR band Last Autumn’s Dream, Heartbreak Radio aim to please AOR and Westcoast fans everywhere by bringing in a little early 80’s L.A. popcraft to the typical FM rock approach, complete with sax and groovy ballads straight out of a Doobie Brothers jam session. The jazziness and progressive overtones associated with Ambrosia and Toto are toned down in favor of radio friendliness, but that’s the key appeal to this genre among aficionados anyway….and some of this stuff is pretty damn catchy, truth be told…
Richard Leech has sung his Raoul to enthusiastic audiences in Berlin and elsewhere, and it is good to hear a voice which has such a clean ring to it, evenly produced and tastefully directed (even if not invariably observing Meyerbeer's detailed instructions). The Valentine is Francoise Pollet, an exceptional singer (especially among the French) in the sympathetic roundness of her tone, exactly right for a good nine-tenths of the role (the remaining fraction calling for more rejoicing on the high Cs). As Nevers, the excellent Gilles Cachemaille gives a courtly, well-schooled performance. (Gramophone)
