This is the now out-of-print 2002 Melodic Mayhem Records reissue of the 1991 Enigma Records release.

Formed in Tampa, Florida in 1985, Julliet performed their unique brand of melodic hard rock to capacity crowds throughout the southern United States before relocating to the rock capital of Los Angeles in early 1988.

Once in California, the band gained a strong and loyal following, selling out show after show and earning a reputation as a powerful live band. One year to the day after they left the sunshine state, Julliet signed their deal with Enigma Records.

At the time of relocating to LA, the band had been working closely with Kevin Dubrow of Quiet Riot. Kevin became interested in working with the group and produced the first Julliet album entitled "Passion". Kevin enlisted the talent of Quiet Riot drummer Frankie Banali to play drums on the album as well. Despite the heavyweight association of Quiet Riot and the solid nature of the material, the album was shelved by the label and not released until two years later.

While playing off the "sleaze glam" vibe of many of their contemporaries, the band also managed to mix in some serious AOR chops and showed early on their willingness to diversify their sound by including subtle experimentation with electronics. The album went on to sell 300,000 copies despite the poor distribution it suffered, but unable to transition to a larger label prior to the grunge wave, the group was lost in the shuffle and disbanded.
