Break Point come to life in the late 70’s in Germany. They were, however, a german/anglo/american band. Recorded in Frankfurt in one month, and sold at the band’s shows only. This is a classic AOR / Pomp album, typical american sound like ROADMASTER, ALLIANCE, STYX, earlier TOTO. Very good production for an indie, excellent vocals and accomplished instrumentation.
Doesn’t sounds dated at all, trust me. The best track for me is “The Wurst Song”, love the keyboards and vocal performance. Other goodies: “Hard Road” , “The Best Of Me” , “Down, Down, Down”.
Bonus tracks are fine too. By 1983, lead vocalist Daved Hallcom left the band. Replaced by english frontman Steve Tolley, they went to studio to record a 4 track demo to negotiate a record deal, but the band parted ways soon after.
A good listen, taste it.
