Un BUEN DISCO de la banda Noruega.Digamos que el disco se mueve entre el AOR mas puro en temas como Life Must Go On y Room In Your Life y otros en onda mas rockerilla al mas puro estilo del primer disco de Mitch Malloy como puedan se los cortes 3,7 y 9.Buen sonido y lo dicho antes BUEN DISCO.

From: M. Allen Date: January 30, 2003 at 0:30
'Return' is exactly what I wanted to do to this CD when I first got it. Waaaaaaay too lite, geared primarily toward the AOR crowd, which means it utterly lacks any hard rock edge. The musicians are competent and the production is slick, polished, & professional, but unless you enjoy pure AOR, find something else to spend your money on.

From: ted Date: February 5, 2003 at 10:36
Maravilloso quinto y a la postre último trabajo de la banda escandinava melódica,este es un cd indispensable en el que destacaría los temas:'life must on' ,'take this heart' ,'tonight' y la genial 'lion´s eye'

From: Peter Poland Date: March 12, 2003 at 19:11
Really good stuff on this album, melodic and not hard. Buy it, download it or whatever, but you have to check it out

From: Teo_3 Date: March 25, 2003 at 20:33
The situation with this group is certain.If you like Stage Dolls,like myself,then this is an ESSENTIAL ALBUM with 10 perfectly executed tracks in the classic scandi AOR and a production from Mr Ole Evenrude that makes this album a sure winner.Everything that OLE touches turns to gold production-wise. An absolute 10/10 fom me.

From: Robert B Date: May 3, 2003 at 18:04
I totally agree with Teo_3. A perfect 10. This album is one of the best scandi rock albums ever released. It's a shame the rest of the albums Return made aren't featured on this page.

From: Returnão Date: June 30, 2003 at 14:40
Grade 6.83?! This is not only the best Return album... this one of the best hard rock albums ever! Got my car, got the beer, got the boys right here just to say that 'Tonight' is the hard rock anthem! 10/10!

From: jaf Date: October 22, 2003 at 4:52
i have got return replay best of very good but also very rare.

From: Scandi Date: January 3, 2004 at 18:01
Really don't get it why this CD is so high-rated..? It's NO 'pure AOR' like Mr Allen says nor 'classic scandi' like Mr Teo says.. for this there is missing the keys! (It's more for campfire rockers ) This album was recommented to me as such a 'classic', therefore I bought it but slightly regreted it. I should have bought 'Attitudes' instead. --Well, that's what I'm going to do

From: Jordi Date: January 23, 2004 at 6:03
Dios Santo!!!! Que gran trabajo! No tenía ni idea de quien eran. De los mejores cds que tengo. Increible sonido, comercial y con canciones que te pillan para siempre. INMENSO!

From: Scandi Date: February 10, 2004 at 20:53
The only thought that crosses my mind by listening this is Mr Big. Take this heart sounds a lot like their smash hit To be with you. How the hell such a wonderful 80s based band can turn to THIS??? -Cruely.. (But to tame you: It's quite well-made music though! --I just don't like it--)

From: keepthefaith Date: March 17, 2004 at 10:22
buen disco de return,desde luego se han esmerado en la produccion tan destacada que tiene este disco.merece la pena el disco aunque sea solo por las canciones Life Must Go On,Room in Your Life y Lion's Eye

From: Date: April 1, 2004 at 13:17
A truly MASTERPIECE. 10/10. Many bands should learn how to record an album. This production is awesome....congratulations

From: TIM (2) Date: June 2, 2004 at 9:51
This is brilliant stuff. Like a better Stage Dolls or Evenrude, the songs are just killer. Better than the cheesy 'Attitudes', and sounding a bit Bryan Adams in places, this is one of my fave scandinavian releases...

From: Scandi Date: June 5, 2004 at 19:42
'Straight across my heart' is an extraordinary creeping ballad.. Well, it's still no winner for me..

From: jozack Date: June 21, 2004 at 11:22
one day i played 'take this heart' in front of my girl with guitar only. she kissed me after i finish the song

From: Geoff Date: September 22, 2004 at 0:57
Now THIS is worth raving uncontrollably about. The band return with a more mature effort, though still owning tunes like 'Tonight' and 'Ridin' on a rainbow' - just perfect slabs of good time melodic rock. And then there are sentimental, heartfelt gems like 'Life must go on', 'Take this heart' and the sensational 'Room in your life'. 'Straight across my heart' is great too, but I'd basically recommend this to fan of top quality melodic hard rock! Excellent CD!!!

From: K.K. Poland Date: December 4, 2004 at 17:27
take this heart is a masterpiece, great band 10/10

From: z4roxx Date: January 30, 2005 at 18:46
Agree agree agree!!!One of my fave scandi band indeed.They sound particular and original with very good melodies always differents,IMO.This one is maybe their more acoustical release but sounds awesome as the others!If you love Return you won't that every their cd play for a long time in your cd-player!!!It's difficult to find a comparrison,for me Return sound like themselves and STOP!!!

From: nanteau Date: March 21, 2005 at 16:17
Well, I just can't get clear with this one.. I think it's almost sleaze.. not my taste of DA VINCI, SKAGARACK etc. I have.. sorry man but only 6,2/10 from me

From: ROBERT Date: February 12, 2006 at 21:21
Gran Banda Noruega, ya lo creo!! Coincido Basicamente con lo dixo por Champions!

Take This Heart on YouTube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfXFOWLZZgQ Friends Will Be Friends :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3W6FTO_2jNk

From: juan carlos Date: February 8, 2007 at 21:29
Esperaba más por los comentarios pero no es esta mal. "Room in your Life" es el temazo del disco en mi opinión, unos coros tremendos. "Going Back" y "All or Nothing" son fillers. Muchos temas con bases acústicas que me parecen muy melosas para mi gusto. "Straight Across my Heart" "Friends will be Friends" y "Life Must Go On" mis otras favoritas junto claro está a la fenomenal.. Tú mismo. 8/10

From: RVB Date: August 22, 2007 at 13:11
Excellent scandinavian AOR. Just listen to the anthems Tonight, Ridin' On A Rainbow and Lion's Eye. The ballads Take This Heart, Friends Will Be Friends and Straight Across My Heart are also fantastic. Another great one I haven't even mentioned is Room In Your Life. One of the best Scandi albums ever released in this genre. As an AOR fan you just can't do without this album.
