Smashing christian AOR. Produced by Elefante. A must have.

From: thealiasmen Date: August 7, 2003 at 11:41
Elefantes' best work I've ever heard! If you like PLANET3, Fahlenheit's TOTO, THINK OUT LOUD and a kind of 'Electro AOR', this is a must!

From: TIM Date: October 22, 2003 at 21:47
Have to agree. This is very good AOR.

From: peter poland Date: February 6, 2004 at 15:37
great pice of hi-tech aor

From: Rycheage Date: May 16, 2004 at 20:53
We are introduced to Michael's AOR world with the title track 'Children Of Choices', full to the brim of hi-tech arrangements, vocal harmonies and nifty guitar parts from Lallerstedt. 'Western World',an album highlight, is terrific stuff, helped along by the recently departed vocalist from Strangeways Terry Brock. The ballad 'Don't Give Into The Night' is album highlight #2. This is pretty spectacular, the guitars are so smooth while the keyboard layers are like a warm blanket. Good stuff!!

From: Magnus Date: July 24, 2004 at 11:02
A great piece of AOR!! In the same vein as Planet 3! Go and get it!!

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: March 8, 2005 at 10:17
Great album of AOR, un AOR suave y de tremendo nivel, comparaciones a Richard Marx, Toto(de esos años), Planet 3 son buenas, en temas Nature of the Beast, One Breath Away, Western World mis favoritas, pero en si es un album compacto al mismo nivel ya sabes si esta un Elefante tienes algo de gran nivel, otro gran trabajo que no puede faltar en tu coleccion, recomendado 100%.

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: April 23, 2005 at 6:24
Miguelito Gleason nos ofrece un AOR Hi Tech muy propio de segunda mitad de los 80,vamos muy al estilo de lo q venian haciendo por aquellos tiempos gente como:Think Out Loud,Tim Miner,Kevin Raleigh,John Farnham,John Philip,What If...Un disco un tanto desparejo pues la primera parte es realmente buena mientras q la 2ª es algo peñazo a excepción de 'Nature Of The Beast'.En fin el enésimo correcto trabajo q pasó por las manos de Juanito y Bernardino Elefante,eso si,ni de lejos el mejor. 7/10

From: BDrums1971 Date: September 12, 2010 at 22:57
WOW!!! This is fantastic!!! Except for one or so fillers, this is almost a perfect cd!! It is the perfect mix of hi tech, pop, rock, and AOR. For a bunch of 'no name' musicians, these guys SMOKE. They sound like seasoned studio veterans. Michael is such a good singer and keyboardist. Yeah, he plays the keys here. And if you didn't know it, you wouldn't guess that this is Christian. The lyrics are so vague that there are really no obvious Christian vibes. Just good songs, singing and playing. Think of Richard Marx, but with better singing and better songs and better keys. Kind of has a Mr. Mister feel, too. 100/100.

From: BDrums1971 Date: September 12, 2010 at 22:59
By the way, if you are looking for straight ahead rock, you probably won't like this. It has some guitars, but I definitely wouldn't consider it rock.

From: BDrums1971 Date: September 12, 2010 at 23:00
I think this is better than Planet 3. The drums are real and I think Michael is a better singer.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 22, 2010 at 20:22
Wonderful album!!!..agree with all the good comments above ...best tracks for me were: "Children Of Choices","Western World"(these 2 are awesome ones!),"Feeding The Fire" ,"Don't Give In To The Night" is a wonderful ballad & "Heart Of Stone" ends the album being a highlight & catchy song...90/100

From: z4roxx Date: September 26, 2010 at 11:15
