They are not a bad band, but if they think they are fooling anyone with their Aldo Nova steal from fantasy at the beginning of there first track they are smoking something.

From: Harvey Date: January 1, 2002 at 8:09
Good stuff. Not the most consistent album in the world though.

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: March 27, 2003 at 10:57
A ver,el disco es complejo de calificar,yo diria que se diferencia en dos partes,los primeros temas van en una onda al estilo Toto o Planet 3 (salvando las diferencias)y a medida que pasan los temas se van acercando al estilo de música que hacen Richar Marx o Tim Feehan para que os hagais la idea.El disco es mas bien recomendado para Aoreros de gusto mas bien tranquilo(aunque tampoco lo sean mucho,mucho)Buen cantante,no es de los mejores discos del 89 ni mucho menos pero... NO ESTA MAL.

From: Harvey Date: November 26, 2003 at 19:43
Just heard that Tony Thompson has died of cancer. This guy was once a member of the awesome funk band, Chic. R.I.P.

From: ROBERT Date: December 23, 2003 at 13:51
oTRA joya del 89' q todavia no tengo!! Por las criticas tiene q ser la Bomba!!

From: Rycheage Date: February 3, 2004 at 0:42
Well produced AOR with hi-tech and funk overtones and a brash drum sound. Similar to Power Station and the Dan Reed Network but very melodic and dynamic. 12 songs on offer and it's very hard to pick out a bad song here. They are all so strong. A great mix of instrumentation, particularly Bova's unique keyboard stylings mixed with Martinez's overdriven guitar sound.

From: peter poland Date: February 9, 2004 at 6:23
i love that band.... i've discovered theme after watching ''burglar'' movie in 86, they made 2 songs for the soundtrack (great ones). Robert's voice is amazing, check out his solo projects.Best tracks are Looking Over Your Shoulder and Everytime I Stand Up. AT THE TOP OF MY LIST

From: Kristian Date: May 27, 2004 at 12:54
The song "As you turn away" is a masterpiece. I would buy this CD only for that one.

From: Perillán Date: July 22, 2004 at 15:40
1,2: temas con un regusto en las bases a música r&b-funky que hace que siempre me salte estos dos. 3,4: temas tranquilos, siendo el 4º una balada "de grupo rock" en toda regla (me gusta). 5,6,7:temas rockeros y muy buenos, el que titula el disco ganaria muchos puntos si el teclista se hubiera estado quieto y no hubiera metido ese "sonidito". 9,10: temazos en una onda más tranquila (¿westcoast?), de lo mejor del disco, aqui se luce Hart.

From: Perillán Date: July 22, 2004 at 15:54
Por cierto mi disco tiene una portada un pelin diferente: cover´s punch-hole (es decir "peazobujeromehanhecho") esta un poco más arriba...¡no he visto una sola portada "limpia"¡,aun así 7.5/10

From: Erik Date: January 25, 2005 at 8:38
Great aor to be found here. Good uptempo songs. Some gems like No way out, Leave it up to you, Give it up and Under the one sky. Good album. 7/10

From: rick kerch Date: February 10, 2005 at 20:21
"Speech of angels"&"As you turn away".Happy happy ever after!!!!!

From: Nick C Date: March 10, 2005 at 17:26
If the e-bay price is correct then this is an absolute steal! It's a nice solid slice of Lite AOR but some of the tracks are blistering No Way Out, Rescue Me. Uptempo rockers mix well with some smoooooth ballads and poppy workouts. Everytime I Stand Up reminded me of Go West,I checked who (co)wrote it, sure enough it was one of the Go West guys. I prefer this to Robert Harts solo releases and his voice is on fine form throughout. I'd never part with this CD although I wouldn't call it a classic!

From: Remastered Reason Date: January 22, 2006 at 22:17
Robert Hart has a great voice. This is a really solid disc that i find enjoyable & like it more with each spin. Also, check out Robert Hart when he was in Bad Company - "Company Of Strangers" cd. I saw them on tour with Robert on vocals & thought like most Paul good can it be? Well, he delivered!!! Rock On Robert!!!

From: SCANDI Date: January 28, 2006 at 15:04
I got my first spin today while writing. It's quite interesting tracks of 'light AOR' but I would rather define them as synthi-based rock. As far as I listened no signs of 'funk' fortunatly.Maybe the last bit of power is missing with this band (most-propably they saved that for God, as I think that's a christian band although there are no signs of it in lyrics or liner notes). I describe their sound as a mix of Nick Kershaw and Giant --quite a difference between, isn't it?? I rate it 7,8/10

From: z4roxx Date: November 7, 2006 at 13:03
Songs like“No way”and”Speech of angels”worth the purchase for this release.Fantastic post-poppish/hi-tech aor well played and sung by Robert Hart in a fantastic way.I can t sell albums like this one even if this kind of music is not my fave in these last periods.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: April 11, 2007 at 11:09
Great AOR with Hi-Tech moments, estilo rapidamente 2 nombres a la cabeza Tim Feehan muy al estilo de este Gran solista, recomendado para AOReros de gustos tranquilos?? hey Pepe yo lo diria mejor asi "Recomendado para los que saben de CALIDAD" cortes buf Everytime I Stand Up(mi Favorita), Speech of Angels, As You Turn Away, Softly Speak(los 4 mejores cortes), Looking Over Your Shoulder, No Way Out con esa cantidad de buenisimos cortes ya no se puede ni dudar Recomendado 9/10.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: April 11, 2007 at 11:15
Ahora como deberia ser la puntuacion en mi caso cuando todo esta bien cantante y produccion entonces vamos a la parte principal del asunto los cortes, 10 cortes por album es el standard que tiene cualquier album y asi debe ser por ejemplo este disco tiene 12 cortes 2 son fillers yo los dejo de lado ya que me importan 10 los cortes que valen si hay mas mucho mejor, aca los otros 10 cortes hay 6 grandes y 4 de buen nivel asi que la puntuacion de 9 se lo merece, forma de puntuar personal, saludos.

From: YIRO Date: November 20, 2007 at 20:34
Pues este disco es esplendido. Es Lite AOR, con elementos Hi Tech y sobre todo ese toque "Funky" a lo Prince en temas como la inicial "No Way Out" y "Give It Up". Un album en la línea de gente como el mencionado TIM FEHANN, TOTO del "Fahrenheit", RICHARD MARX (Repeat Offender). Sin duda esas baladas como "As You Turn Away" y "Softly Speak" son verdaderas maravillas, muy emotivas que hacen de este disco algo muy elegante. Ah y canta Robert Hart que está simplemente Genial aqui. RECOMENDADISIMO!

From: ROBERT Date: December 28, 2007 at 11:08
SPEECH OF ANGELS es la Bomba!! FELIZ AÑO 2008 A TOD@S!!!!

From: jedilato Date: July 12, 2008 at 17:15
This is a good album, but nothing more I'm afraid. As I see the most of you people found more joy in it, than I did. Only 3 songs worked for me: No Way Out, As You Turn Away and Softly Speak. Anyway, this is worth listening it, go check it out!

From: happy2849 Date: March 7, 2011 at 14:52
Another I have to pull out every once in awhile. I like the lead singers vocal style and the use of keys in the right places. Another usually cheap so take a chance!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: December 1, 2011 at 19:24
Listening to my old original tape(bought it on that format when it came out)once again and well,what can i say...this is more delicious than eating a 4 cheese pizza ...Robert Hart is such a wonderful singer(remember he later joined Bad Company after this project)and the rest of the guys are just awesome musicians...the whole album is packed with brilliant songs,my personal fave is "Speech Of Angels" and followed by "Leave It Up To You","As You Turn Away"(killer ballad),"Give It Up","Everytime I Stand Up","Softly Speak"(nice ballad)& "I Hear You"...recommended album...93/100

From: nimzo Date: November 23, 2015 at 11:40
Good album of lite AOR. Great voice of Roberto Hart. This work is better than his solo albums. The best tracks here are: "No wyay out", "Speech of angels", "Rescue me", " Everytime I stand up" and the precious "Softly speak". 86/100
