Not a bad rock/pop album from Burning Rome. Vicki has a great voice and she recorded a track for the Navy Seals film soundtrack Wounded Warrior a real power ballad.

The best song on the album is the new wave-ish Once Over which was also included on 80zforever excellent compilation Rare Hits Of The 80´s vol 29. I also like Voodoo Lover and the ballad He´s In Love.

    BURNING ROME vocalist Vicki Thomas was a mere 21 years old when A&M Records released the band’s debut album in 1982. Thomas had gone solo at the tender age of 13 before joining an all-girl group called RENAISSANCE WOMAN playing marine bases and Rock joints. After employment as a singing waitress, Vicki cut an R&B single, that was never actually released, before gaining a contract from A&M Records with more Hard Rock material.

    Producer Liam Sternberg was enlisted to help Thomas assemble a band to record with as the project evolved into BURNING ROME. The pair subsequently enlisted guitarist Steve Dougherty, bassist Ron Murray and former TOMMY TUTONE and ELVIS COSTELLO drummer Micky Shine.

    In the late 80s Steve Dougherty was to turn up as a member of EYES. Dougherty also down guitar on BERLIN’s smash 1986 album ‘Count Three & Pray’.
