AOR Masterpiece!!! 20 Sept. 2005

This cd is an Westcoast AOR masterpiece!! Similar in style to Richard Marx, there are no fillers, top notch studio musicians & songs that will impress you. This should be in every AOR collection. If you do not have it, get it. It doesn't get any better than this.

Musician list: Mike Baird, Randy Jackson, Michael Thompson, Steve Lukather, Albert Lee, Tim Pierce, Kevin Cronin (REO Speedwagon), Bill Champlin (Chicago) & Tommy Funderburk.

Completely rocking AOR album 3 Jan. 2008
By Justin G. - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Even though he is best known for the syrupy sweet hit single Where Are You Now, Jimmy Harnen actually rocked out quite a bit on his 1989 debut Can't Fight the Midnight. Similar in style to that era's Bad Company and Shooting Star albums as well as Blue Tears and Lou Gramm's solo material, Can't Fight the Midnight was a very solid AOR/melodic rock album. That shouldn't come as too much of a surprise given the session musicians Harnen had to work with, such as Randy Jackson (yes, THAT Randy Jackson, then of Journey) and Toto's Steve Lukather. Harnen himself brought a very steady voice and solid songwriting skills to the table.

Even though Where Are You Now was Harnen's big hit, it's probably the weakest song on an otherwise very upbeat and rocking album that totally fits with the late 80's AOR sound. This is the kind of album that has you kicking yourself for missing it the first time around. I just ran across it recently, and had I remembered Where Are You Now I probably would have left it in the dollar bin. Instead I've got another great 80's rock album to add to my collection.

Can't Fight the Midnight is a definite winner for those of you who still love that 80's AOR/melodic rock sound.

The Whole CD is Great!! 30 Jan. 2007
By Niki - Published on
Format: Audio CD
You know that one song or movie that takes you back in time and reminds you of your youth? Well this CD is it for me. I got this cassette when I was in High School and literally wore it out. I just recently purchased the CD. Everyone remembers 'where are you now' but honestly I like all the other 10 songs better.
