"On The Edge" is the second release of Canadian's Renegade, featuring a different singer, Steve Foster, but still offering a set of songs from the 80s, except for two songs, "Angel of Love" and "On The Edge" which was recorded and finished in 2004. Musically, the style is exactly mirroring those songs in their debut, a typical melodic rock and AOR stuffs in the veins of Loverboy, Boulevard, Alias, or Bad English.
The scent of the 80s is very thick within the arrangement, you'll know this definitely doesn't come from 2004 in your first spin and while 36 minutes of running time is too short for me, there are several great tracks to love here such as "Testify", the bass pumping intro with blissful keyboards make up a wonderful melodic tune to rise as the best track of the album; "On The Edge", another beautiful tune to love; and "Take A Chance on Romance", a strongly-composed melodic rock track.
"Friends of Lovers" is the decent filler ballad here and the rest are between decent to good in average. "It's My Life", "It's Only Make Believe", or "Kids Runnin' Wild" are all good tracks and I guess Renegade did it again, to release such a nostalgic album for those who grew up in the 80s decade. This second album is as good as the first, though I still favor "Back From The Dead" over this, you need to buy this for the tracks "Testify" and "On The Edge" alone.
