3 out of 5

The first First Signal album from 2010 was a collaboration between Harry Hess and producer Dennis Ward, on the 2nd album Hess teamed up with Daniel Flores (The Murder of My Sweet).
Soundwise, nothing has changed so fans of the first album can relax. However, I can´t get rid of the feeling that many of these songs on "One step over the line" feels predictable and also goes in the same tempo. They´re kind of stuck in the midtempo lane of 100-110 bpm.
It´s still a solid album with some well performed AOR tunes that is hard to say no to where the credits go out to Harry Hess - Lead Vocals, Michael Palace - Guitars/Bass and Daniel Flores - Drums/Keyboards.
Highlights : Love gets through, She is getting away
