Hey there!

So I stumbled upon the song "New Frontiers" by The Force a few months back, and I liked it so much I decided to take a chance on purchasing their entire LP, plus their only 12" single for a track titled "Eye to Eye". Turns out, I struck gold and stumbled upon a gem of an album that, at times, sounds like Duran Duran (not the vocals), and at other times has hints of Big Country. It's a great combination of pop, rock and new wave throughout the entire album. After a few listens, I'd say my favourite tracks are: New Frontiers, Eye To Eye (reminds me a lot of Girls on Film), Amigo, Tomorrow Never Comes, Shout and All Too Much).

Interestingly enough, the 12" single has a couple Live tracks on it, and they sound great! Wish I could find more live stuff from these guys!

Here's a link to their discogs info:

I've transferred it to FLAC, and removed as many of the pops/ticks as possible. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!!PYcAlY6Z!giu69PxHZtOd ... qkH7_I5bEE
