Great review Kevin, obviously you spent a lot and time and effort in putting it together. I think that my opinion falls somewhere in between your review and Andrew’s; I personally think that “Never Too Late” is one of the Albums of the Year but have to listen it to a few more times before I can decide whether or not it is a future classic.

Fortunately, I love Erik Martesson’s writing style and there is no denying that his influence can be heard all over this album. It will be a close call at the end of the year as to which album I prefer the most out of “Never Too Late” and Eclipse’s “Bleed And Scream”. The latter I have played on a regular basis since its first release but probably not as much as the Toby Hitchcock album from the previous year. I love your summary, “Hitchcock was melodic hard rock with some AOR tendencies. This is pure 80s AOR with some melodic rock tendencies.” Could not have put it any better myself. If he can continue with the high standard that he his shown over the last few years then I have no problem with Erik producing even more albums!

I would love to hear the remastered versions of Survivor’s “Vital Signs” and “When Seconds Count” as I have read on the Noticeboard, previously, that they are tremendous. These are two of my favourite eighties AOR albums, however, do suffer from a very tinny Ron Nevison production.
