Stardust is a band sure to cause a few surprises with this near perfect melodic rock debut album that is overflowing with tremendously written and perfectly delivered rock tracks that are simply divine. They have a sound that is very transatlantic and come across as a very heady mixture of an early Foreigner, FM, Kingdom..
