Raine - Peace (2000)
Leading off the "Peace" CD is the track "Rainmaker", a gradually building melodic rock piece that features the vocals of David Lindland and some very impressive harmony vocals from the other band members and guest background vocalists. "Rainmaker" actually sounds similar to Von Groove. (Who coincidentally have a CD and song called "Rainmaker"). "I Am" is a slightly faster paced song in the vein of "Haunted Heart" by the melodic Canadian band Alias. "2 AM (Hang Out Here)" is a catchy, mid-paced rocker with a high harmonious chorus that hooks you in after only one listen. Lindland's vocals are favorably comparable to Mickey Thomas (Elvin Bishop, Jefferson Starship, Starship) and Fred Curci (Sheriff, Alias). The songwriting throughout the album is solid and the ballad "Miracles" is a beautiful composition featuring the keyboards of Kasey Smith (Danger Danger).
Raine's "Peace" is definitely recommended for fans of polished AOR/hard rock with plenty of hooks and big choruses. The higher pitched vocals are a welcome change from the lifeless vocals of most radio bands in 2000. The Pure Rock Shop

"Peace" is walking on the no man's land between AOR and progressive rock. Raine pull it off better than Euphoria though, and at their best they deliver fine melodic rock, be it adult oriented or progressive.
