Alias Eye’s latest studio album, ‘In-Between’, is a return to the melody-driven arrangements of their debut, ‘Field of Names’, while retaining the heaviness of the band’s third effort, ‘In Focus’. 'In-Between' highlights Alias Eye's approach to songwriting: strong vocal hooklines are paired with lavish choir arrangements and meticulously arranged instrumental passages. From the oriental flair of the opening track, ‘Arabesque’, to the mellow, bitter-sweet lament of the ballad ‘Stars Shall Fall’ and the heavy guitar riffs of ‘Indentured Pride’, ‘In Between’ is a truly progressive journey through a variety of different styles and genres.

Alias is the debut album from the Canadian rock band Alias, released in 1990 by Capitol Records. The single "More Than Words Can Say" reached #1 in Canada and #2 in the United States. A second single, "Waiting for Love", was released in early 1991 and peaked at #13 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.
Never Say Never, released in 2009, is the second album from the 1990s hard rock band Alias. In early January 2009, Alias announced the release of their long awaited second album. This album, appropriately titled “Never Say Never”, sat unreleased for nearly 18 years. It was recorded in 1992 and was planned to follow the self-titled debut album Alias. However, due to the rapidly evolving music scene of that time where the grunge movement was growing in popularity and metal was fading, it was never released. A few of the songs from this album were re-recorded and appeared on lead vocalist Freddy Curci’s solo album Dreamer’s Road, but many tracks remained unreleased.
"PentaTone have definitely established a winning formula for success with the ten Wagner operas they are currently recording in association with Deutschlandradio Kultur in Berlin. (…) The presentation of this set is excellent. Thankfully, it includes a well translated German/ English libretto (unlike the travesty supplied with the Bychkov version), a thought provoking essay on the opera by Steffen Georgi and full artist biographies. Though my own allegiance to the Bychkov version among recent recordings remains steadfast this Janowski account is unlikely to disappoint. It will surely be welcomed by avid Wagnerites and makes one eager for the next issue in what is proving to be a superlative series." ~sa-cd.net
