Review

Yep, "Ecstasy" was released on Polydor but that doesn't mean anything, you won't find any copy that quickly. And another thing that doesn't mean anything is the year 1992, JOKER do deliver classic 80's stuff with strong melodic hints and a double dose of Sleaze/Glam Metal spiked with pretty cool guitar solos while the opener is a real power grenade. Due to the choruses and keyboards the album appears commercially influenced, but not in a bad sense. Easy listening is guaranteed here and even vocalwise you don't need to expect a pseudo-english singing italian crybaby (sorry guys but italian singers are quite bad), Tiago Gardner had a pretty strong middletuned voice that perfectly harmonizes with their glammy Metal style. Usually you should expect copies around 40 $'s which seriously appears a bit too much for me, but according to the rarity that "Ecstasy" became nowadays you really need a huge dose of luck to get a cheap copy.
