The Best of 2014!
January 26, 2015 -
2014, the year that was. The Best of lists from Mike, Pete, Jez, Terry, and myself have been posted. A strong year, but actually there was less consensus amongst the 5 of us then there has ever been. That tells me there were a LOT of good releases across many genres. Feel free to add your own list at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!

|Very good album throughout, but i think this was slightly overhyped on certain web sites. Don't get me wrong, this is universally excellent throughout, but wasn't as good when i heard it as i thought it was going to be.

| Jez, we are totally agreed, I this album was certainly overhyped, on melodicrock.com at it's most. A ''Million Miles'' is a great tune, and ''What If'' has a nice chorus, but nothing more. I think the band did not pay much attention to this one, maybe the members had their minds on Riot, TNT and Danger Danger affairs. Big mistake for me bying this album. Just download ''Million Miles and ''What If'' and everything's fine

|The band's decision to go in a more commercial direction this time around results in the best of their three albums, but it's still a far cry from being a classic. Despite the talent involved in this supergroup, there are much better melodic hard rock acts out there, which makes the hype surrounding this release inexplicable. 'Cyberdreams' is good, but it ain't super. Bottom line, it ain't the stuff dreams are made of, but it's not a nightmare either...

|I agree with the above posts in that this album was practically toted as the 'Sgt. Peppers' of our time on melodic rock/metal websites which raises the expectations and bar for this album WAY too high. Best of the Westworld cd's in my opinion and just great production, wish every band played melodic rock with this much care and conviction. 'Misery Loves Company' is my favorite here (great lyrics) and a melodic band actually pulls off the Sabbath tune 'Neon Knights'. Incredible guitar work!!

|This is the best set of songs the guys have written. Each track flows seamlessly into the next, making this one of the smoothest running albums in recent memory. And best of all, this album is pure melodic rock bliss. Every single track has multiple hooks which get better with every listen. As instantly memorable as many of the tracks are, the real beauty of this record is the extra layers that are revealed with each listen, thanks to some intelligent songwriting and excellent production.

|Found this used, remembered the hype, said what the hell. This is a confusing piece of work. It is obvious that these dudes are talented, but where are songs? I wanted a big hook I could not get out of my head. None found. Is it too complex for their own good? Were they writing with their heads instead of their guts? Tony's vocals are overly dramatic at times,almost girl-like. Even Neon Knights is played with only one ball. Very disappointing.

|Look to see is a brillant ballad, and what if is a cool song the rest is almost poor.

|Believe the hype folks...this CD is GREAT.I was never a big TNT fan growing up,so I was kind of reluctant to pick this one up; boy am I glad I did.Extremely polished,melodic hard rock. 10/10!!! You can download the Cyberdreams Japanese bonus track 'Beautiful' at: http://www.westworld-web.com/audio/beautiful_full.mp3

|This one is a grower. An enigma of an album, when I think about it nothing really comes to mind, but once its playing I'm enraptured. The album just gels. Beautiful is the killer standout track, but wait, it's not on the album! Someone really needs to be fired for that.

|If you believe the hype this is their best and most commercial. Luckily I have never been one to listen to or believe hype. This is an excellent CD but nowhere near as commercial as the debut. The songs are excellent and the delivery, as always, is flawless. 'A million miles' battles 'I belong' for the throne in the world of my favourite Westworld song and elsewhere the CD is excellent too. I probably like this as much as 'Skin' (maybe a little less), but the debut still is my fave.

|My #2 pick for best album of 2002. Unfortunately, the best track 'Beautiful' was only available on the Japan release. We're stuck downloading a cheap .mp3 version from their website.

|Nothing over average here... same with all westworld music....too bad rych hypes them cause they know them....

|Not a bad album but a little overrated from what I had heard (melodicrock.com). Beautiful (on jap import) is the best song and should have been on the main version. Unfortuantely most fans will never hear it. rock/AOR sound.

|'Beautiful' is indeed a great track, and they didn't include it because Westworld albums never have more than 1 or 2 blatantly commercial, early-TNT sounding tunes on their albums (sadly). This album already has 'A Million Miles' and 'Righteous One', which funnily enough are my fave 2 tunes. The rest is good, and I probably prefer it to the patchy new TNT album (which only has the first 4 tracks that I like), but the new TNT just sounds so much better and more powerful than this. 8/10.
