Novaspace, judging from their track 'Time After Time' and 'Run To You' seem to be just cheesy remakes of older rock songs. However, a closer inspection reveals that the production and quality are professional, making these tunes quite enjoyable. Full of energy and made as a commercial crossover into the radio friendly element of dance music, Novaspace have a nice balance. 'Time After Time' is even featured on the Trance Nation Future compilation.
