Unlike many other bands of this era, Saraya had a strong voice, and the music was influenced more by old school rock (Heart, Pat Benatar, etc.) than hair metal. The album hit #79 on the charts, with both "Love Has Taken Its Toll" (#64) and "Back to the Bullet" (#63) charting, but not breaking the top 40. While Saraya never quite found its audience, I was a fan, and think that the first album, in particular, is very solid.
The band released a second album, 1991's When the Blackbird Sings (which did not do as well) before breaking up in the early 1990's.
