“Mark Pogue & Fortress, Review of the album "Restoration" The zing on this CD, the flawless production...words cannot really convey my first impressions of this record...Mark has a real solid commercial/AOR voice, the kind you hear on the radio every day. But these songs! Listen...That's really all I can say. No watered down message here, this is the real McCoy! I'm truly beyond impressed. Best tracks include Who do I Believe, Get up, Family Man, Holy Man (great sax solo by Greg Vail). "Bride of Restoration" really hit home for me personally and I'm thankful for the outcome of the story. Want to know what happened? Buy the record...and find out. Terrific debut for Mark Pogue, and another nail in the coffin of my Elefante objections. Great job!”
