Russia's answer to Journey
Justin Gaines | Northern Virginia | 05/18/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"If Gorky Park was Russia's answer to American hair metal, then Autograf was their version of American arena rock. Autograf played AOR/melodic rock similar to Journey, Foreigner, and REO Speedwagon, though not at that level of quality.

Released in 1991, Tear Down the Border was Autograf's only album. Overall it is a decent AOR album. The songs are well-written and are quite melodic, and the musicianship is solid, though not exceptional. The album's weakness is the vocal delivery. Singer Arthur Berkut doesn't have a particularly strong voice, and it seems obvious that he's not entirely comfortable singing the lyrics in English.

Weaknesses aside, Tear Down the Border is not a bad album. It just doesn't hold up very well to it's American counterparts. Still, at such a low price it is worth picking up if you're a big AOR/melodic rock fan.

The track listing is as follows:

1. Coming Back to Find You
2. One Step Away
3. Tear Down the Border
4. How Can I Call It Love
5. Why Is This Goodbye
6. Judgment Day
7. My Brother
8. Going Home
9. Play With Fire
10. Why Can't You Stay
