Promises, promises, promises… For the past 15-20 years the Canadian band HONEYMOON SUITE have been struggling over and over again, desperately releasing an album that would touch the quality of their first 3 albums, but sadly after ‘Racing after midnight’ and with the ending of the 1980s, the band never did manage to come up with a decent release, despite stating each time they had release their finest record so far! Also their dozen comeback albums from the 2000s were quite boring to say the least, but the new CD ‘Clifton hill’ is finally bringing us light at the end of the tunnel. The band has now released an album that contains songs that easily can be called the best HONEYMOON SUITE tunes in 20 years! The band has found their AOR/Melodic Rock roots again, probably also due to the fact the band was formed 25 years ago in ‘Clifton hill’ near the Canadian Niagara Falls, which will also be the place of a big outdoor festival soon where they will headline.

The classics were made in the 1980s by HONEYMOON SUITE, but happily this new album also offers some pretty good material. Opener “She ain’t alright” is a superb classic uptempo melodic rocker that finally brings the band back into the mid 1980s, so maybe they learned that LOVERBOY’s new record sounded great despite a pure 80s sound! Other highlights are the semi-AOR ballads “Ordinary” and “Restless” as well as the uptempo melodic rockers “Tired O Waitin’ on you”, “The house”, “Down 2 bizness” and “That’s all U got” (a la NIGHT RANGER) and the AOR song “Sunday morning”. Good to see the band back doing what they do best, which is Melodic Rock! (Points: 8.3 out of 10)
