Hey Alex,

Watch it! Asking someone to "get me a CD of the band" isn't very good business.....Harem Scarem, as Don rightly pointed out, are one of the undisputed kings of AOR....if you don't have them, you're missing out. However, their output varies wildly, some of the later albums such as Big Bang Theory are not AOR, despite what anyone may tell you. You may like the latter albums or the Rubber albums, Im not trying to persuade you to be narrow minded because they do deserve a listen, but dont expect any monster AOR hooks and catchy choruses.

As far as AOR goes, I'll second the opinions you have heard. Get the self-titled debut first, then the second one. WIthout going into an argument about which is better, it's a better transition to hear the first and then the second. Both outstanding blind buys.

If you want to take a listen on the old Napster, get the following I mean as tastes before you buy, so you know what you're getting into. People who are against Napster may say that it's not right, but I do it all the time that way. Like the new Rafa Martin ( I just tarcked down the *only* copy sold in all of Mexico City a few days ago): I heard a bunch of songs, then went out and bought the CD. I wanted the whole packaged deal with sterling sound.

Anyway, get:

From the debut: With a Little Love, Slowly Slipping Away (acoustic), Distant Memory, Hard to Love.
From Mood Swings: Stranger Than Love, Saviors Never Cry, Sentimental Blvd.
From Karma Cleansing/Believe: Rain, Die Off Hard.

That should be a good introduction. Trust wise Jack.
