Finally issued on cd along with the excellent debut album. This one is a beautifully crafted Hi-tech monster, with an awesome production from Beau Hill and a list of Musicians to die for. Songwise it ain't no slouch either with tracks written by Bob Halligan jr, Billy Steinberg, Sandy Stewart & Kip Winger. Faves - Living In A Boys World (featured on the Aina album), Tradgedy, Hopelessly Love you. Go get my friends

the best album the fiona, ten stars

From: Bernardito Date: March 5, 2005 at 19:00
more comments, PLEASE!!!mas comentarios POR FAVOR!!!

From: Nanteau Date: March 6, 2005 at 14:01
Among the best of american female fronted AOR albums. "Tragedy" is a very cool track, "Running out of night" is my favourite & "He's on my side" is a nice ballad --nothing more. "Living in a boy's world" is actually better from AINA's same titled album. Well, it's an 8/10.

From: Nanteau Date: March 6, 2005 at 14:03
However, production is weak JEZ !!

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: April 16, 2005 at 6:40
En lineas generales bastante diferente al 1º,en este se alterna el Hi Tech con AOR standard pero tremendamente edulcorado.El resultado final es idéntico al de sus otros 3 discos,osea un DISCO APAÑAETE con sus buenos temas y tal...pero los justos,y eso es algo q a otras quizás no pero a la Srta.Flanagan si q hay q reprocharle pues contaba con mas medios o ventajas q las demás (Beau Hill) para haber sacado un disco puntero por lo menos dentro de las Female Fronted,algo q por desgracia nunca logró.

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: April 16, 2005 at 6:59
Por cierto de lo q si puede presumir es de interpretar uno d los mejores temas AOR q se hayan parido,se trata de "Hearts Of Fire" tema perteneciente en la Banda Sonora de la peli de mismo nombre q creo q en la reciente reedición de este cd la han incluido como bonus track al igual q los otros temas q canta Fiona en esa peli.

From: ROBERT Date: April 16, 2005 at 10:40
Disco muy discretito a mi humilde entender...Un aprobado justo. Hay muchisimas Femaled's Fronted muxo mejores para mi gusto.. Saludos dd Barna! Buen finde a tots!!

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: May 14, 2005 at 22:12
Great AOR album, hora de dar mi opinion, estamos ante un tremendo album de AOR el mejor de Fiona y uno de los mejores hechos por una femina, una mujer con una voz poderosa el tipo de voz que busco en una cantante, veo que no arriba no le dan lo que merece en sus opiniones, solo cabe mencionar temazos como You Better Wait(un temazo DEMOLEDOR, solo Joan la menciona bravo por eso, que pasa donde estan esos oidos de expertos catadores, este tema es uno de mis cortes favoritos que encabezan

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: May 14, 2005 at 22:18
mi lista de feminas), Running Out Of Night (otro gran corte a medio tiempo realmente grande) y Living In A Boy's World el tercer mejor corte Joan felicitaciones tienes un gusto extraordinario casi nunca as fallado en la mayoria de comentarios que te e visto, hey hasta ahora no se si eres chica por el nombre seguro que si, si me equivoco perdon, asi que señores este es un Imprescindible en tu coleccion y mas por los cortes mencionados, full sonido 80 que es lo que buscamos y amamos.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: May 14, 2005 at 22:22
You Better Wait is KILLERRR!!! no paro de escuchar este TEMAZO pocos temas pueden igualar a este, lo tiene todo una voz poderosa, bateria contundente, guitarras y teclados en su punto, FIONA I LOVE YOU!!! como dice Bernardo quiero ver mas comentarios, more comments for this album!!!

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: May 15, 2005 at 16:21
Es que un tema asi eleva de sobremanera cualquier disco canciones asi son las que buscamos en todo disco de AOR y pocas veces conseguimos!!! You Better Wait RULESSS!!!

From: Lovedrive Date: May 17, 2005 at 8:56

From: aTomiK Date: June 8, 2005 at 2:59
This is a great cd. Much better than i thought it will be. Production is fantastic as it is always with Beau Hill. 9/10.

From: AOR freaky Date: August 17, 2005 at 4:20
O dear ! Just tried to listen to this one again, and after three songs I had to turn it off ! Didn't know how horrible this is ! Fiona has a very poor voice, but it's that hi-tech sound that drives me crazy ! TOO BAD FOR WORDS and a shame for the AOR genre !

From: Darkstorm Date: March 4, 2007 at 0:28
personally I don't get why everyone hates Fiona's voice as I think she's a great cross between Lee Aaron and the singer from Vixen>there's some great AOR tracks here, like the infectious Tragedy, the midpaced Hopelessly Love You and In My Blood, and the spine-chilling He's On My Side.I'm glad I was fortunate to get a copy of the reissue from Borders.

From: MikeTuinstra Date: April 9, 2009 at 22:40
To my ears this is first rate high class AOR. For those of you who don't like it are probably more into female Rock by stereotypes. Fiona Flanagan has a very clear voice as opposed to the basic raspy raw Rock vocal some of you might expect to hear back. Fiona isn't your typical female rocker with the sloppy image, tattoos, piercings and all but more like a Mariah Carey, who happens to be my all time favorite singer gone Rock 'n' Roll. A pretty girl Pop star being a Rock star. For me this is great, I'm a huge fan of singers with actual pipes in Pop vocal against Rock music as much as I like a clean, classy and yes hot image. A darn shame something like that doesn't exist today. Note why I'm here in the first place. Just spotted Fiona on MySpace BTW, perhaps she might consider giving that comeback a shot by now? World waits for you!
