PERFECT CRIME is no way keyboard driven hard rock, more like bluesy hard rock with splashes of keys here and there and yes it has some of DON AIREYS finest work IMHO PERFECT CRIME is not a sgreat as BLONDE ON BLONDE was, who IMHO delivered some of the coolest cheesy melodic rock AOR by any female / male artists.

ANNICA, well, a very overated CD, after the first couple of tracks you are given average melodic rock that gets moody and dark towards the end of the CD. The best tracks are classic AOR along the lines of TREAT / GLORY etc... but ther's only 2 trax that delivers these. the label is LIGHTHOUSE RECORDS

Also I wont agree that TINDRUM (dow) / LAOS / SARAYA / WITNESS are keyboard driven material, TERJE listen more carefully to your collection :-) You are doing a brilliant job !!!!!!!!!!!

BLONDE ON BLONDE ( BLAZING RECORDS 1989 )

Perfect Crime was the same band as Blonde on Blonde whitout Chris Candy on Vocals.Both band are build around the female vocals of Bente Smaavik & Chris Candy who share on this job..Both are very hard to find these days.Blonde on Blonde was released under a small label called BLAZING RECORDS and a few copies where only released ,while PERFECT CRIME was released under The major company EMI.But here comes the strange thing about Perfect crime,you can find lot of the album on lp ,but they only released the cd in 1000 copies who mostly where sold localy and at concerts.

When the band after a very shortly time where asking for more copies from the record company .they got the answer that the band was no longer on their priotory list,that after according to Willy Wild Bendiksen have spent a fortune in promoting this band,it even had Don Airy ( Keyboards ) and Bernie marsden in the line up.Bernie as the produce....
