Not Too Bad
V. Daniel Ziemecki | Atlanta GA USA | 02/01/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I hate to damn Gloryline with faint praise, but it's a pleasant piece of jangle pop. If I lost mine, I'd buy another one (especially at these sub-dollar prices). But I'd buy "Rough Night in Jericho" first.

There are a couple stand-out tracks on this CD that are pretty much worth the price of admission: "Stand Tall" was probably the "hit" off this one - I remember hearing it on local radio, but then I was in and around Athens at the time. It's a straight-forward piece of country-tinged rock, all chiming guitars and tambourines. "Overton Park/Faith" is a nice instrumental-cum-rock-out that appears on a lot of my mix-tapes from back in the day.

Many of the songs have a soft Christian overtone to them, if that sort of thing matters to you. Other than the stand out tracks, not much else sticks in my memory, which may explain why there was no follow-up to this one. If you were wondering about Dreams So Real, go for Jericho. This one's an also-ran."
Slightly weaker than "Rough Night in Jericho"

"Bigger production waters down the sound of Dreams So Real in their 1990 major label follow up to "Rough Night In Jericho".

You can still hear the passion of the 1st album in tracks like "Gloryline", "We Have Danced The Night Away" and "Here Comes The Train", but the majority of these songs suffer from the increased production.

Stick with "Rough Night in Jericho", and spend the rest of your energy looking for 1986's excellent "Father's House", with the outstanding track "Everywhere Girl"."
