Man this cd Rocks, it is unbelievalbe, originlly this group was signed with Atlantic Records before the grundge era hit, they would have been the next group. This is a must for any Great American Hard Rock fan such as Bon Jovi, Danger Danger, ect... Find them on the web and grab this cd they have 2, both are great

From: wildtantrum Date: June 9, 2001 at 18:40
If you liked the very first Danger Danger Album, then you will love this cd as well. Great vocal, solid ballads, and hard hitting tunes that just make you get up and Rock.

From: James Date: December 29, 2001 at 16:15
I'm with the people above. This is a group that should have been a big hit.

From: JJ Rock Date: March 6, 2002 at 23:05
This is one of the best AOR cds in history in my opinion. Lets hope they get back together again someday.

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: November 17, 2002 at 10:36
Un competente disco de Hard AOR de sonido americano,la verdad es que para ser del 96 se puede considerar gran disco,temas melódicos,muy accesibles y para nada contagiados del sonido alternativo de la época,la producción no es que sea de multinacional,pero suena bastante limpio.VALE LA PENA.

From: Federico Date: November 19, 2002 at 16:02
A very good melodic hard rock album. This band captured me since I heard Talking to Sarah on the first mtm compilation. It's a very catchy song a real master piece. The singer is great, I like very much also Closer to the heart, Something about you and Ain't nobody to love. I appreciate also the lyrics.

From: ROB GARCIA Date: January 24, 2003 at 15:26
somebody once described tower city as a mixture of giant and def leppard.....i totally agree with that description.anyway any album that has mike slammer in the credits ,you can be sure its going to be good.

From: freddy de keyze Date: February 17, 2003 at 10:06
Very good CD indeed, guys ! I totally agree ! I sounds harder than most the stuff I love, but this is great. Good songs, nice musicians, clean production. This CD is indeed rocking ! GOOD ONE !!!

From: Rycheage Date: April 1, 2003 at 2:37
A Little Bit Of Fire is basically a mix between 'Adrenalize' era-Leppard and early Harem Scarem, with a little Bon Jovi commecialness thrown in. Yep, there is a heavy likeness to the mighy Leps, with the big vocals, the multi-track guitar sounds and even the drums. But that is only part of the attraction of the album. There are the big ballads like 'Surrender' and 'I'll Sleep Tonight', big rockers like 'Talking To Sarah' and 'Hooked On Hope' and even some mid paced tunes like 'Something About Yo

From: AOR freaky Date: December 16, 2003 at 8:19
Their best ! Hard rocking heaven !

From: run2u Date: April 21, 2004 at 10:59
Uno de los pocos productos del sello MTM que se salvan de la quema.Nos los vendieron como una mezcla del sonido leppard/winger...y aunque la comparación apunta alto,NO DEFRAUDA EN ABSOLUTO.Buenísimo hard rock americano con una producción más que decente.Temas pegadizos pero serios,con aires elegantes,de línea"clásica"dentro del género y que realmente convencen.La única pega podrían ser sus momentos repetivivos.En resumen,debut compacto y brillante.RECOMENDABLE. 7/10 run2u69@hotmail.com

From: JESSICA96FISH Date: April 30, 2004 at 20:10
one of those cds you should have in your collection.their second isn't as good but not bad either.i think that tower city sound like steelhouse lane.very cool cd.

From: meradona Date: June 22, 2004 at 15:10
me encanta este grupo vaya dos cds que nos dejaron, tiene un aire leppard muy notable, pero gran cd, yo le daria un 9/10, me encantan los temas surrender, talking to sarah, buen trabajo.

From: Rockhead Date: June 24, 2004 at 9:32
Brilliant AOR combining the best ob Def Leppard, Mike Slammer, Harem Scarem (early) and Giant all rolled into one. Given a major label marketing budget and released back in the day this would have sold millions. Awesomee 10/10

From: AOR freaky Date: June 24, 2004 at 10:06
I agree with you on this one, Rockhead ! Great hard AOR, but not a ten. That's perfect, and not one record is perfect. I should say 8,5/10 !

From: Rockhead Date: June 25, 2004 at 18:29
Ok then 11/10

From: Geoff Date: August 30, 2004 at 0:15
This is an excellent CD!!! From the excellent opener 'Talking to Sarah' you know you're in business. The title track is great, 'I'll sleep tonight' is a beautiful ballad, 'Surrender', 'Closer to the heart', 'When it all falls down' and the excellent 'Something about you' - just excellent slabs of melodic hard rock. I love this CD!

From: Dave Date: September 3, 2004 at 21:27
Great album and in my view the stand out track is the classic "Stop Running".

From: choppizz Date: October 6, 2004 at 16:35
I have been digging Larry Saltis' vocals since he was in the New Monkees. I think that I'm the only human that heard them. This cd is well produced, but almost too much like Def Leppard. I give it a 6/10. I think that their other cd " All or Nothing" is actually more original sounding. Still - all in all - I think they rock!

From: Chad Date: February 4, 2005 at 22:44
Get this album! While the album starts off with a weaker track (Talking to Sarah) it grows afterward. If you like Bon Jovi, Leppard and Danger Danger, this is your band. The vocals are heavily influenced by Jon Bon Jovi and the music seems to have more keys than David Bryan gets to play but I hope you get the idea. Sounds alot like Bounce-era Jovi. Good stuff. Contrary to my comments this is not a Jovi rip off band. They hold their own. Just trying to give comparisons.

From: Vishal Date: April 11, 2005 at 20:12
one of the MOST and i mean it most reliable and great bands of the 80's along with bonjovi , i dont have any of the 2 cd's in its entirety. can someone rip it for me if possible . im at vmulchandani@gmail.com ill pay the postage etc

From: Dave Stamos Date: May 6, 2005 at 13:13
“Talking to Sarah” se revela como la principal muestra de todo su estilo.Larry Saltis lo borda:buena voz,composicionesy muy inteligentes guitarras.El sonido rockero más melódico esta en “A little bit of fire” o “Closer to your heart”:geniales!Por otro lado está el siempre efectivo tema hardrockero a lo Def Leppard o Warrant:“Ain´t nobody to love”,idóneo para directos.Las baladas tienen un estilo propio elogiable:la acústica “Surrender” o la mastodóntica y oscura “I´ll sleep tonight”.HardAor 100%

From: Swazi Date: September 11, 2005 at 15:36
I first heard "Talking to Sarah" on one of those MTM samplers and liked it. After buying and listening to this phantastic album I find that most songs are actually better than the opener. Great hooks, no fillers !! Get it !!

From: juan carlos Date: April 11, 2006 at 0:17
Gran disco, muy parejos en cuestion de temas pues todos dan la talla, por ahi un par de temas solo buenos pero de ahi todos son excelentes canciones. La 3 y la 11 suenan a los Bad Co. en la epoca de Brian Howe. La 10 recuerda a Harem Scarem. Si te gustaron los Steelhouse Lane pues esta joya no te defraudará. Estoy de acuerdo con los comentarios de Champions, AOR Freaky y de casi todos. 9/10

From: Dreamaholic Date: April 26, 2007 at 15:40
Another very commercial release that I think is just a little overated. The songwriting feels radio-driven, especially Talking To Sarah. They just need to add some soul. Having said that, I think Moonlight is a perfect example of what I'm talking about. Great song to listen to with the windows rolled down, good atmosphere, good soloing, catchy hook, and good enough to make it into my favorites playlist. I may not think highly of the rest of the album, but that song is awesome!

From: kipvanpearcy Date: September 11, 2007 at 7:03
A mix of Def Leppard and Blue Tears, excellent album! Highly recommended!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 26, 2010 at 19:27
Amazing album!..loved it all..plenty of energy and melody..the band has Def Leppard as a major influenced i supposed..(probably a low peak because could lack of originality,i mean the voice of Larry Saltis ala Joe Elliot and the choruses are 100% Def Leppard trademark)but apart from that is a very enjoyable album..about the tracks i could say that the best for me were "Talking To Sarah","Little Bit Of Fire" very catchy,"Ain't Nobody To Love" excellent,"I'll Sleep Tonight" a mega ballad,"Surrender" catchy too,"Closer To The Heart" solid,"Stop Running","When It All Falls Down" lovely AOR and "Love And Money" rocks!..essential album if u loke sweet yet solid melodies..about the DL comparisson,well forget about it!.Buy and enjoy.98/100

From: yuki85129 Date: October 3, 2011 at 14:23
American Hard Rock such as Bon Jovi, Danger Danger...But your ratings are higher than Bon Jovi, Danger Danger, and do not feel too ridiculous?

From: 123charpenay Date: January 20, 2012 at 10:20
i remember in 1996 the boss of mtm says "we have find in the deep of america a band whose name is tower city.it is 3 guys ,2 brothers and a friend who plays an unique and amazing melodic rock influenced by def leppard but not only".hum i was a little septic but the first time i hear this bomb i was scotched on my chair.these guys are pure genius they are unique they have their particular own style.i have never hear a hard fm like this with irresistibles choruses,big choirs,big guitars,superb keyboards and clear guitars like in the funfy music.this mix is amazing and simply extraordinaty.not ok with yuki the same common point they have with bon jovi and danger danger it is that they are american.musically they have nothing in common with these 2 legends.a real jewel all serious aor fans have this record in their collection.

From: Locoaor Date: August 15, 2013 at 1:46
1996 cuando todo era esa basura de rock alternativo o grunge, sale este sensacional disco, hard rock melodico con clase.

From: hair metal again Date: December 6, 2013 at 11:42
