Melodic Rock Of Our Dream

"Canadian rocker Von Groove's debut in 1992 is incredibly great.
It would be the rock album you can dream of if you already got into Giant, Winger, Danger Danger, Firehouse, Hardline styled melodic hard rock. ONCE IS NOT ENOUGH, well-written rock anthem
leads us to the world of upbeat well-hooked melodies punching us till the edge. Fourth track ONCE IN A LIFETIME is an acoustic ballad Firehouse is well capable of but theirs can easily rival the aforementioned. HOUSE OF DREAMS is just the bombastic and catchy rock anthem what I had been dreaming for so long. ARIANNE is the killer emotional ballad which could have become huge hit. SLAVE TO SIN was the song inserted to the introductory part of the opener.
Must-have for early 90s rock fans who love Firehouse, Winger, Danger Danger, Hardline and Giant."
Awesome melodic rock album

"Von Groove's self-titled debut is one of the most sadly overlooked gems of the late 80's / early 90's hard rock scene. Hailing from Canada, Von Groove came out of the gate with an extremely strong first album of melodic hard rock similar to releases by Damn Yankees, Bad English, Tyketto, Bon Jovi, and Giant. Von Groove's music is melodic, yet without a doubt a hard rock band. The album is packed with great rock songs and better than average ballads. The musicianship, songwriting, vocals, and production were all top notch. The album's only flaw, albeit one that applies to most albums at that time, is that the lyrics are pretty standard love song fare.
This is a fantastic melodic hard rock album, and one that all fans of the genre should seek out."
