Jesus Cares (Soundtree  STR 107)  1981  UK *

 

Melodic rockin’ AOR-ish goodie from five-man UK group featuring resounding power synths coupled to commanding electric guitar leads. ‘Tell The World’ and ‘Lightning Sky’ are good examples of their clean high-energy sound, both delivering fast-paced ripping guitar action. ‘Rescue Shop’ gets an aggressive boogie rock-n-roll groove going, while ‘Saviour Of The World (Song Of A Disciple)’ slips in a few cool prog/art-rock moves of the Yes/Styx variety. In between are several melodic harmonized ballads, some a bit sugary, others building up to “power ballad” status. Custom record from Swindon, England.     (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
