Album Review

Two years after Love Crimes, Canadian hard rockers Harlequin followed up their debut album with One False Move, coming up with a much more solid effort, lyrically and musically. With three releases attaching themselves to radio, "I Did It for Love," "Heart Gone Cold," and "Superstitious Feeling," the spotlight shone a little brighter on them, thanks to some catchy hooks and invigorating rhythms which gave this album a faster pace than its predecessor. The drums are hit harder, the chords are played quicker, and the keyboard work is toned down just a notch, allowing this five-piece band to bark out some enjoyable rock tunes. Unfortunately, the other eight songs are milquetoast efforts, raising the stakes only slightly from their first album, but presenting any curious fan with an appropriate outline of their sound.

Customer Reviews

Third time unlucky

This was Harlequin's third album with Epic and unfortunately it ended their recording contract.
The songs are pretty catchy but are somewhat over produced and too textured.
The band's first two albums displayed stronger material and punchier sound quality.
It would be sweet if iTunes could provide "Victim of a Song" (debut) and "Love Crimes" (2nd album) maybe someday.
Until then stick with the greatest hits collection as it provides a better perspective of the band and captures most of Harlequin's best songs.

Most Consistent Album (also their third album, not second)

This was the third album by the band, not second. The best produced/engineered as well. The sound was punchier, the songs were more consistent. Superstitious Feeling still gets a lot of radio play. Ready To Love Again and Heavy Talk are good songs in addition to the ones cited in the review. If the first album (Victim Of A Song) had been produced using the same values as this one then Harlequin would have been killers right out of the gate. If nothing else pick up their Greatest Hits.

(I'm somewhat biased as they were the hottest band in Winnipeg at the time I started sneaking into the bars.)

Where are the other albums?

It's great that iTunes has Harlequin ,represented by their greatest hits and recently one false move, but why not victim of a song and the great "love crimes" album both are great albums but love crimes was their best effort ,best production, best songs(not a bad song in the bunch!) ,maybe it's the record company,but even Streetheart another great Canadian band out of Winnipeg, has their catalogue on iTunes, so hopefully iTunes will correct this soon, thank-you ....a Canadian music fan.
