The Place Vendome band was put together by Frontiers Records in 2005 and comprised of Dennis Ward (bass), Uwe Reitenauer (guitars), Kosta Zafiriou (drums) from Pink Cream 69, Gunter Werno (keyboards) from Vandenplas and Michael Kiske (ex-Helloween, Avantasia, etc) on vocals. Their self-titled debut album was a brilliant melodic rock / AOR release. When the follow up was confirmed in 2008 expectations were high.

While the musicians have remained the same; this time around the songs are provided by different songwriters. Torsti Spoof (Leverage), Ronny Milianowicz (Saint Deamon), Magnus Karlsson (Bob Catley, Starbreaker) and Robert Sall (Work of Art) make up the songwriting team.

By looking at the list of people involved with this album you would expect a quality release oozing with variety...well this is exactly what you get! "Streets Of Fire" is an outstanding AOR offering, filled with quality songs and impressive musicianship. If compared to the first album this sophomore effort is even more AOR, as the guitars are a little softer and the keyboards are slightly more evident than before. Nevertheless you get a good dosage of hard rock riffs and passages, Reitenauer's solos are mind-blowing, all the rhythm sections are tight and the blending of keyboards with guitar and vocal harmonies creates wonders.

As expected the songwriting offers great variety which is definitely one of the album's strong points. Torsti Spoof offers catchy hard rock influenced tracks, Ronny Milianowicz provides beautiful slow and mid-tempo AOR songs, Robert Sall brings an uplifting melodic soft-rock feel in his numbers while Magnus Karlsson and Dennis Ward do their usual best in their accustomed melodic rock setting.
