|Well if it ain't Vivian Campbell, what band has he not played in? Soul music, vocal music, great guitar rock! Folk like melodies in the songs.'Water From The Moon' is the hardest blues rocker & 'Holy War' is a great tune that resembles the conflict of Jerusalem & Afganistan That we're dealing with right now.Very, very good CD.Add this to your collection!

|Well, it's OK, but really pretty boring. Nothing really stands out, and it's not very heavy.

|ESPERABA MAS DE VIVIAN CAMPBELL. TODO ESTA DEMASIADO OIDO, POCA ORIGINALIDAD. FALTAN GRANDES TEMAS. LIGERAMENTE DECEPCIONANTE.
||Date: September 10, 2002 at 7:28|
|A mature and cautious album. Not a provoking one. This is rather, soul, folk or southern. May be good to listen on the road.

|baris, i couldn't say it better myself, my favorite song is 'toy soldier' firstname.lastname@example.org

|i think, this is very good album. cuz' full of great guitar work, soulful, excellent vocal from fine singer, catchy hooks, nice sound quality from the band. good production irish thunder ''VIV CAMPBELL'' is GREAT GUITAR PLAYER

|This is one of the best albums of all time for me. A true Gem. All songs have a flow to them unserpassed by most artist's today!
||Date: January 12, 2003 at 5:27|
|The most underrated band on this planet!If you want to hear the best c.d of 'all time', get yourself a copy of Riverdogs ,'Absolutely Live'. Rob Lamothe is the second best vocalist on this planet behind Paul Rodgers!
||Date: March 22, 2003 at 6:55|
|Awesome CD! The the warmth and sincerity of this album craps all over anything Pearl Jam or any of those inferior 'Grunge' bands can come up with.
||Date: April 6, 2003 at 22:14|
|This is an album that every self repecting rock fan must beg borrow or steal as it is without doubt the greatest rock album ever. Rob Lamothes lyrics and vocals are heartfelt and sung with a passion seldom heard. The guitar work is impresive as one would expect. Absolutely live is again stunning. Worth buying whatever the price.

|Really a great album, but certainly not the greatest album of ever...easy... Would have deserved success for sure. We may be 10 in France to own this record but 10 to be lucky.
||Date: May 20, 2003 at 20:27|
|Great album!! This is what Pearl Jam should have done, though I doubt they have the talent.
||Date: September 6, 2003 at 3:09|
|Already in my all time list!Super killer this one!

|For god's sake , get a review in for 'absolutely live' and you will see why this album is second to none for raw brilliance. You won't hear a live album recorded with more feeling and emotion than this masterpiece!!!!!! Just get it even if you have to beg , borrow or steal.... It's that good!!!!!!!!!
||Date: November 8, 2003 at 1:59|
|... sincerity & emotion- yes. However, if you are going for straight-ahead hard rock, you'll be disappointed. I am a huge Vivian Campbell fan, so own this album, but firmly believe his best work was with Dio. If not for the discipline, songwriting, and structure from RJD, VC would probably not be the talent he is. This album is worth checking out, but honestly not one in my regular rotation. I agree w/comments re: Pearl Jam... I wish rock had taken this direction instead of the grunge movement.

|I am also a bigger fan of Viv with Dio and had avoided this album since it was released, deeming it much too light for my tastes. Finally just picked it up recently and surprise! I really like it, it's not metal no doubt, but the songwriting is great, and Viv's guitar work although much more laid back than with Dio, is very tasty.

|excellent musicians...but unfortunately they fail to deliver what couldve been a great hard rock album;instead what you get is a blues tinged rock album that goes nowhere.rob lamothe would release later on a bunch of solo albums which i do recommend as they are more aor oriented and contain better song material.
||Date: March 22, 2004 at 14:24|
|Great songs, great album.
||Date: March 23, 2004 at 14:44|
|A must buy album!!Superb songwriting!!
||Date: August 15, 2004 at 18:06|
|Toned down blues rock with no real fluid motion. 'Toy Soldier' is probably the most memorable song here. I expected, as did all of you, an album of rocking proportions, but instead Viv gives us this drivel. It just goes nowhere.
||Date: August 15, 2004 at 20:54|
|Overall I guess this is a good CD. Good performers, great voice, but for me it's one of those one track albums. I've heard and loved 'Water from the moon' for the past 5 years since I bought it and the rest of the tracks are nameless. Beautiful song and worth the price alone, but the rest of the album never did too much at all for me. Killer song though, 'Water from the moon'.
||Date: November 30, 2004 at 23:53|
|Terrible chunk of crap. How could Viv stoop to something as shitty as this? But then again, Def Leppard are bubble-gum, aren't they? It truly can be classified as Drivel, as Rycheage notes. Excellent musicians??? I have very rarely heard worse musicians than these. I have to give this one the worse possible rating: 0/10.

|Just got this cd off ebay and it was worth every cent. I know it will be a favorite. Vivian Campbell is as usual a guitar god. These songs are really superb. The singers voice is incredible, so soulful. It sounds like lighter badlands to me, but Vivian just rips it up. This cd should come with a money back guarntee. Fans of korn, pantera or the like need not apply. This is quality rock. If you download a few tracks you will be buying this disc! ****'s

|Rob Lamothe is one of the most beautiful voices in the whole world!!! Masterpiece!!! 10/10
||Date: March 31, 2007 at 14:36|
|Hey Dan, I thought Riverdogs were an American band apart from the Irishman Vivian Campbell of course. You show a Union Flag next to the band.
||Date: July 7, 2008 at 14:14|
|I gave it try as I like Vivian also but this album did very little for me , it is way to light for my tastes. That being said the musicianship is fine but this disc only lasted about 3 months in my collection. Viv certianly has other albums that he has done much better on. 65/100

|this is a hard rock masterpiece.there is really a chemistry between those guys.unbelievable guitar work by viv,superb bluesy and sensational vocals by rob .surely one of the best hair metal releases of the early 90 s by riverdogs.i guess that was what the mighty def leppard listened to ,in order to hire vivian a little later.anyway listen to "whisper","toy soldier","water from the moon" and "america".very classy songs indeed don t you think;thank you riverdogs!

|Along with Ray Gillen, Glenn Hughes and David Coverdale, Rob Lamothe has always been one of my favourite vocalists. This debut featuring then ex dio guitarist Vivian Campbell is a smooth blues rock album with the first four songs being the stand outs.

|Recommendable bluesy Hard Rock album with a slightly southern feel..great vocalist(Rob Lamothe)and Viv Campbell doing a fine job in the guitar...good shots are "Big House","Holy War","Rain-Rain","Spooky" & "America"...but the best shots IMHO are "Baby Blue" & "I Believe" ( i love the rhythm of both tracks )...maybe not an essential abum but if you like bands such as Company Of Wolves or the bluesy Hard Rock side of Whitesnake then you might enjoy this release...89/100
