I think that this must be one of the most underrated soft rock releases ever. I'd heard little of Dakota before this was re-released, but it is fantastic.
The opening title track starts off building slowly, with synths bubbling, before bigger chords come in, followed by great vocals. Finally, the guitar comes in to add a bit more clout, and then come the drums. Great start to a song. When the percussion comes in it's very empowering, the vocals become more impassioned.
Later on comes "Heroes", a slower number with overtones of the classic 80s power ballad, complete with soaring chorus vocals.
Towards the end, you get "Angry Men". It starts very slowly and unremarkably. But once you hit the chorus, it's all going on.
This album is a great blend of light and dark. I think that a lot of songwriters these days forget the need to use contrast, but it works beautifully here.
