What was it like again with the Prophet in his own country? Okay, especially revolutionary or farsighted characteristics have never been promised to the Hanoverian hardrockers Fair Warning, which is why their career in Germany was relatively unspectacular. For their success in Japan, however, they must always be acknowledged and their hats pulled off. Album number seven, which in terms of album title and cover design has clear parallels to the 95 breakthrough "Rainmaker", is also likely to be a great success in the Land of the Rising Sun. Because the concept of the band, which in principle has been working in an unchanged line-up since 1990, is as firm and immovable as ever on "Sundancer". Tommy Heart (vocals), Helge Engelke (guitar), Ule Ritgen (bass) and CC Behrens (drums) rock loose and flaky, touch Hardrock, AOR and Melodic Rock and deliver rock solid, honest band work, but in the end they remain a bit unspectacular. But Japan will certainly see it differently.
