This album is very refreshing in that it is so original and unique. The guitar work is first class and the vocals are incredible. Almost anyone should be able to appreciate at least something about this album whether one is a fan of classical music or even a straight hard-rocker. Definitely worth checking out. / This is a very interesting recording. It definately has a unique sound. Even if you don't care for opera there are some great guitar solos / A fantastic opera perfomance combined with modern guitar and electronic arrangements. Particularly Lori Stinson's voice is of highest standard. Should attract anybody who loves opera and are not afraid of some novel musical arrangements. Probably also those who have not yet understood the highlights of opera would learn to like this genre after listening to this CD. The only minus side is that the instrumentals sometimes over-ride the voices in the mixing.

 

I have had this cd for 15 yers now and while for many of them was long out of print. It is highly recommended if you like vocalist Rob Rock (ex-Impellitteri/Solo) This was one of the absolute best produced Christian Metal albums of the late 80's whereas most seemed to lack the punch that most mainstream albums had this on is a sonic blast to your eardrums featuring the awesome shredding of Dennis Cameron. The lyrics are not overly "Jesus Praising" they are more secular in nature but display an overwhelmingly postive tone. Highly recommended!

Here are the personal thoughts of Dennis Cameron about "Angelica": "Angelica started as a vision that I had for an ideal band full of believer musicians. The experience making the first album was to be the "Awakening" for me both as a musician and as a professional. Here's a lesson that I hope any readers can learn from.

 

The first Angelica album was recorded in Costa Mesa, California with the starting line-up of: Andy Lyon, Scott Ernest, Bob Pallen and myself. The finishing line-up for the album was a little different . . . While in the pre-production stage of making the first album, Andy Lyon, the vocalist (more likely from a lack of experience on all our parts) chose to view the the opportunity to prepare for recording with less enthusiasm than the rest of the band. The result being that after a couple of days of having Ken Tamplin push him in his performance (as Ken was hired to produce the vocals on the album) that the singer "burned out".

 

At this point, (as humbling as it is to say) we were in need of a singer to salvage the (what was now being refered to as the Dennis Cameron) project. We now needed to find someone to finish out the album. Ken had suggested two replacements, Bob Carlisle or Rob Rock. Having once been a proud owner and fan of the Driver album (Rudy Sarzo, Tommy Aldridge, Tony MacAlpine and Rob Rock) Rob was the easy pick of the two to best suite the music style. At the time of recording, Rob was in the process of regrouping a new version of Driver and was rehearsing and recording with them as well as doing the session work for Angelica. What a trooper he was! I can remember Rob coming to the sessions with this big red swollen throat saying that he had just come from Driver rehearsals and that he was pumped and ready. Not withholding, Rob would assume his best Iron Maiden pose in the vocal booth and trek on with our sessions.

 

Rob's voice was in a higher range than Andy's, which meant that some of the vocal melodies had to be reworked to fit his voice. For example, the original version of "Shine On Me" melody started on a major 3rd, but was transposed to the 5th for Rob. We finished the album a couple of weeks late due to all the mayhem and I returned home (Ontario, Canada) wondering how I was going to continue with this band under these circumstances."

his one has Rob Rock on vocals and i could swear Ken Tamplin sings one song and does bgv on the whole thing.i was a Van Halen fan when i was an early teen so ive always like this style of guitar playing. not bad for first album.This album was Very Melodic and inspiring. I enjoy the freshness of the songs and the guitar arrangments, the songs really are uplifting. I just wish there were bands doing this type of music now like they did in the 80's and early 90's, the music scene sorely needs it.....And By The Way There's straight Christian Message.
