No Sweat were an Irish rock band, active during the late 1980s and early 1990s. They are best remembered for their single, “Heart and Soul” (produced by the Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott), which topped the Irish Singles Chart for two weeks in June 1989. The group had two further Irish hits the following year with “Tear Down the Walls” (#4) and “On the Edge” (#11). 1990 also saw the release of their self-titled debut album and only album, which was produced by Keith Olsen (Fleetwood Mac, Grateful Dead, Ozzy Osbourne, Scorpions, Whitesnake, Emerson, Lake & Palmer) for Pogo Logo Corp., and was recorded at the Goodnight L.A. studio in Van Nuys, California, United States.
…A treasureable and revelatory disc of the alpha and omega of Schumann's symphonies; I can hardly wait for the other pair.
After the muddled crossover attempt of Grab It for a Second, Golden Earring regrouped in its native Holland to record this album. This time, lead guitarist George Kooymans took over the production reins and all the group's members collaborated to write the album. There is a poppier, hook-oriented edge to the songwriting and self-indulgent epics are downplayed in favor of tight, short songs hovering around the three-minute mark. As a result, No Promises…No Debts continues the straightforward hard rock direction of the last few albums but manages to retain Golden Earring's distinctive personality, even as it pushes the group in a more commercial, AOR direction…
Keith Sweat's first studio album since 2011 arrived as the singer's syndicated radio program, The Sweat Hotel, was approaching its tenth year. It could be deduced that the gig has sharpened Sweat's ears and pen, as Dress to Impress features his best round of songs in well over a decade. Beside a small cast of writing and production associates that includes Wirlie Morris and Derek Allen, Sweat focuses on romance and emotional connection. The album sounds fresh while drawing from numerous eras, just as the Sweat Hotel playlist roams from decade to decade.
