This is a release that should be high on the list for fans of Loverboy, Tyketto and Rick Springfield.

The fourth release from Antipodean Melodic Rockers The Radio Sun serves up another helping of eleven tracks that are full of catchy hooks, harmony vocals and multi-layered guitar work with plenty of fine solo work thrown in for good measure. 'Unstoppable' has been mixed by Paul Laine (Danger Danger, The Defiants) with the vocals and instruments being well defined and separated in the mix without being too forward.

The album opens with 'Heaven On Earth', a quick drum lead in and straight into the melody of the verse. 'Only You' is a mid-paced Pop Rocker as previously served up by the likes of Loverboy or Y&T, whereas 'You've Got The Touch' slows things down a bit. 'Tonight's The Night' is a classy mid-paced rocker with a simple infectious guitar riff (which is annoyingly familiar) and 'Surrender Your Heart' introduces a keyboard intro before giving way to the main guitar riff.

'Dreams Should Last Forever' introduces the keyboard talents of Andy Shanahan (from nineties Aussie rockers Roxus) which, along with the soaring guitar work, help elevate this song into "classic" status – surely this will become a favourite live. 'Set The Night On Fire', 'Why Must I' and 'Whenever You Want' are catchy mid-pace numbers full of the trademark harmonies and melodies we have come to expect from this band. The title track 'Unstoppable' is the rockiest offering on the album, opening with a simple basic riff full of reverb that develops into a pacey background crunch to accompany the verse, before an eminently sing-along chorus and fine, if short, guitar solo. The final song, 'You're Everything To Me', is the only ballad on the album, there's a vocal full of emotion with a piano accompaniment which slowly builds to the finale.

This is a release that should be high on the list for fans of Loverboy, Tyketto and Rick Springfield. The highlights of this album would be the opening '...Last Forever', 'Tonight's The...' and 'Unstoppable' with its simple Progressive riff building to the first verse that leads into a catchy chorus with harmony vocals and some serious guitar soloing – guaranteed to be a live favourite. The Radio Sun will be playing HRH AOR festival in the spring and also headlining some shows around the same time – catch them if you can
