Album Review: "Level Ground" by Fortune (9/10)


Level Ground

Frontiers Records

Producer: Marc Greene

It’s been a minute (actually decades) between studio albums, but brothers Richard and Mick Fortune are back for this latest venture. Veteran lead vocalist Larry Greene is also on board and the results are stunning. They are one of the original progenitors of that slick melodic AOR sound where the guts remain intact. Songs like “Silence of the Heart” and “Judgment Day” are power rockers built on huge hooks and stellar harmonies. “Level Ground” and “Hand in Hand” cover a wide range of tastes as well.
