this is magic!!!! envolving melodies upbeat songs and a great singer.The track 'West of Sunset' makes me fly away. 10/10.... I introduced this album in the Ebay Monitor and i forgot to mention the 6th song 'gimme your love {2:52}', could someone correct my mistake and add this song into the track list?. this is a really almost impossible to find CD, i´ve got the lucky to have it and if you find it, whatever it cost, buy it. for contact:www.haremscarem@eresmas.com

From: Michael Date: March 17, 2002 at 8:43
i totally agree with you they also relz and album under the name fingerprints before the west of sunset came out also excellent if anyone have any news bout this band please let me know

From: selfish@tlen.pl Date: April 23, 2003 at 6:38
Very good, west-coast styl AOR. That what's all about in this music. Softly player tunes, with some keyboard etc. If there is an oppurtunity to grab it, get yourself a copy. My. fav. track is ''Time Is All We Need''

From: adboimel Date: June 6, 2003 at 16:12
Great POP/Lite AOR, one of the best in my opinion, even better than Fingerprints. The song 'Taking a Chance' is a must, brilliant!!!!! If you like the lightest portion of the AOR sound, buy if you can, I recommend!

From: Rycheage Date: February 8, 2004 at 17:14
The opening trio of songs are all pretty special. 'Giving My Heart Away' is very upbeat, while the title track 'West Of Sunset' is a real melter, with a sublime chorus and vivid verses leading into it. 'Ocean Boulevard' is another upbeat pop masterpiece. 'Now You've Gone' is a subtle ballad which drifts on an ocean of emotion. Again the choruses are killer! The sound is very mid-west oriented, not smooth Swedish 'playing AOR by numbers' at all, but more syncopated and stripped back.

From: peter poland Date: April 4, 2004 at 7:22
right, Masterpice of westcast aor. Recommendece from the bottom of my heart

From: TIM (2) Date: April 11, 2005 at 3:25
Now this IS worth tracking down. Glorious pop/rock with a perfect up-lifting summery feel to the music. 'Ocean Boulevard' particularly is a glorious feel-good tune with lush melodies and great harmonies all over it. 'Gotta Have it all' is another real highlight and is just so damn catchy, as is the brilliant 'Homeward Bound'. This is pretty light and is more equivalent Swedish pop-rock acts like Martin Stenmarck/Jan Johansen than to Skagarack or Treat, but it's a near-perfect disc IMO. 9.5/10.

From: oliver Date: April 11, 2005 at 6:17
sorry to say but imo this one is overrated. may be i´m not so much into westcoast music, but to me this is lite aor and the songs aren´t remarkable enough to pay that much money. 6/10

From: montenn Date: April 22, 2005 at 22:34
love the comments oliver,unfortunately i don't agree.if you are looking for westcoast then this is the cd to start with.imo the hooks on this are huge and a wet dream for lovers of westcoast/aor.highly recommended.

Well to all you who like West of Sunset I have very good news. The guys have started to work together again, after many years, doing other things. Björn took a total brake from the musicbusiness, but have written many good, fantastic songs during this brake. And he sings better than ever. Thomas have been touring with other artists, among others, Sofi Zelmani and Eva Dahlgren. So watch out for West of sunset, cause they will concer the whole world this time.

From: Clayton77 Date: December 12, 2006 at 2:45
AOR-Pop/Rock at its BEST!!!! If you like Dominoe`s 'The Key' you`ll love this album. My Nr.1 Song is 'Taking a chance'!!!!

From: newscandi Date: March 27, 2007 at 15:45
What a smoooooth classic. I'm in a mood where I'd like to enclose this album with my arms and spend the rest of my life with these kinds of sweet melodies on an lonesome island... 'West of Sunset', 'Now you're gone', 'I just wanna hold you' & Homeward Bound' are sweetest wescoast, while 'Giving my heart away', 'Ocean Boulevard', 'Gotta have it all' & 'Taking a chance' are more fun styled. I don't need to mention 'Time is all..'. 'Before I trust my heart' is a wonderful wescoast ballad.

From: z4roxx Date: May 21, 2007 at 9:03
'Giving My Heart Away'is the only track I did listen to from these guys and it's fantastic westcoast/aor of a very good quality.I did think they played a kind of poppish/aor like Fingerprints but evidently they are different....When someone will re-issue this one please????

From: george_the_jack Date: May 1, 2008 at 9:26
Very good chill out melodies...I do not think, standing beside Oliver, that this album is so special.Worth hearing lying on a beautiful beach of a Greek Island, enjoying your cocktail...I give 78 out of 100.

From: lalo r.o.c.k. Date: July 14, 2008 at 11:48
That´s what i call great music in the lightest AOR side,beautiful melodies and that voice remembers me Jeff Scott Soto for moments,all the songs have magic,is true that has poppy moments but we don´t care at all if high quality music is delivered in this album,Gotta have it all,Giving my heart away,Ocean Boulevard,Now you´re gone(great ballad!)and I just wanna hold you, all will take you to AOR WESTCOAST heaven,buy it and enjoy it with a girl,9/10.

From: Psyborg Date: September 29, 2008 at 13:21
Be warned: If you associate bands like Toto with Westcoast music -avoid this! Apart from the first two songs this has just boygroup charme for me. Greasy...

From: Photochromic Steve Date: November 16, 2008 at 17:16
Definitely at the light and poppy end of AOR, but still an album full of good songs - just don't expect too many big guitars!

From: qwest Date: November 17, 2009 at 13:56
Good, outstanding album.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 15, 2011 at 21:43
Enjoyable album ...this is what i call an adult Westcoast AOR...wimp???...why???...solid songs and great compositions...best tracks for me are "Giving My Heart Away","Ocean Boulevard","Gimme Your Love"( ),"Time Is All We Need"(nice catchy)& "Homeward Bound"(nice)...recommended album...89/100

This really does little for me, except for the smooth title track which is a little pearl.
