I agree with Andrew on this. I bought the first one and even though the production and performances were great, there was nothing there to 'hang my hat on' so to speak. Nothing that made me want to go back to it for more. I'll probably go back to it once and a while but no songs stick with me. And just because it's AOR doesn't mean the chorus is 'cheesy'. I have many AOR discs where the choruses are subtle, intelligent and don't necesasrily hit you over the head like maybe Danger Danger's 'Bang Bang' where I can still hum the chorus many months after the last time I've heard it. Granted that chorus is a bit 'cheesy', but it does the job.

One I can think of off the top of my head is the new Heaven and Earth disc. That disc has many songs with excellent choruses but I wouldn't class any of them as 'cheesy'. They don't hit you straight up and the more I listen to it the more it takes hold. I'm just saying that you don't need a full up Jack Ponti or Desmond Child inspired chorus for it to be effective. The chorus should be the pinacle of the song, the part the verses build up to, but if the chorus blends into the verses, you don't get the feeling like the song is going anywhere. Just my opinion...
