"Breaking the Cycle" is a concept album which revolves about finding emotions in yourself that you never knew existed. It’s a deeply spiritual quest of finding and dissolving so many layers inside you, going ever deeper, to the essence of your being. As emotional beings, we belong to never ending Cycles that determine the amplitude of the frequency we emit to the world around us and in us. This is a story about breaking the Cycle of frozen emotions, melting all the “Ice” that’s inside you, in an attempt to bring warmth and Infinite Sun in your being, to regenerate, to fill your heart with every colour you like. Relaxing and psychedelic, melodic and deep, ambient and experimental - this album takes you on a magical journey through the Shifting Stream of Emotions.
Few front men can claim to have had such a lengthy and far-reaching career as Graham Bonnet; first finding fame as part of The Marbles, enjoying a hit with the Bee Gees’ ‘Only One Woman’ in 1968; a solo career across the 70s; further success with the Bee Gees’, and the disco flavoured ‘Warm Ride’. But Graham found what was possibly his greatest success replacing Ronnie James Dio in Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow for 1979’s “Down To Earth”, and the worldwide hit singles ‘All Night Long’ and ‘Since You Been Gone’. Solo success beckoned with ‘Night Games’ and the “Line-Up” album in 1981, before briefly joining The Michael Schenker Group for 1982’s “Assault Attack”. The performance at Tokyo's Nakano Sun Plaza venue was deemed so good that no other concerts were considered for inclusion on the “Live Sentence” release, which includes unique versions of ‘Night Games’, MSG’s ‘Desert Song’, and Rainbow’s ‘Since You Been Gone’, ‘All Night Long’ and ‘Lost In Hollywood’.
