Beyond Port Cities deep devotion to their craft, their success is largely built on a simple but timeless approach and they say a good song is a good song, is a good song. No matter what the music the melody might call for, the best song always wins, says Port Cities.

What a nice sounding album and all 3 music artists shine with their outstanding vocals says Atlantic Seabreeze and we forsee more nominations for this album and possible ECMA 2019 Awards.

We give this album a full 5 star rating out of a five star rating.
