Shooting Star - Leap Of Faith [2000]
“Leap Of Faith” is the seventh release from the group of Shooting Star.
I think Shooting Star is one of the most underestimated groups of melodic hard rock / aor genre , at least here in Greece only a small part of fans of this genre knows anythin’ about them (I don’t know what happens in other world).
The “Leap of Faith” has it all , great songs , brilliant vocals, melodic and catchy choruses.
