|I don't know if the cd's on Ebay are fake or not since I've never owned one. It normally runs for $62 when I've seen it. I own both the cassette and lp. Beau Hill produced this one. They aren't bad.

|If you find it on CD, it's fake. The infamous bootleg label "Reborn Classics" issued them as a 2-on-1 in the early '90s, but there has never been an actual CD release. I have versions of both Streets albums on CD that have cleaner sound than the Reborn Classics release; for a while I was selling them on Ebay (with CD artwork I made from the vinyl) but I've since given that up. Atlantic really should release these on CD...

|Hey Dan, I've never heard their other album. Is it any good?
|Heavy Harmonies Owner|

|I think "First" is a little better than this one; I'll try to add it to the database over the weekend. The audio fidelity is definitely better than Crimes (Crimes only ever saw a vinyl release; First saw a handful of promo CDs released and then get yanked as the CD release was shelved; the source I have for "First" is from one of those promo CDs).

|I saw another copy of Crimes In Mind on cd this morning. The guy swears up and down it's original. I guess a lot of people are being ripped off. How do you find out if something is officially released? I usually ask one of the power sellers if I'm not sure, but sometimes they don't know.
||Date: May 22, 2002 at 21:33|
|I have both on LP and they are great. Mike Slamer is amazing on guitar. I like 1st more than "Crimes". I read that Steve Walsh has tried for years to get the albums released on cd but it's never happened. Maybe someday(fingers crossed)! Anyway, I've always been a Steve Walsh fan and he sounds great on these albums. It's different from Kansas, but you can hear some Kansas-style influences here and there. By the way, Steve Walsh's new CD "Glossalia" features Mike Slamer and Billy Greer!

|I have a split CD version with both albums, but not on reborn classic (mine is a bootleg on al bundy records I think is it called ).
||Date: June 5, 2002 at 18:56|
|I got the 1st one today and I wasn't too thrilled with it. I thought it was rather weak.
||Date: June 7, 2002 at 14:18|
|Mike Slammer re recorded the song If Love Should Go from the 1st Streets cd and released it as a bonus track on the Steelhouse Lane - Slaves Of The New World cd. Streets are very similar to early Survivor on thier first cd, and The Steelhouse Lane cd's sound like a cross between Hardline and House Of Lords. I guess they would because Mike worked with both bands. I got both of Streets releases from the internet and I'm happy with them for now. They have a great sound. Worth checking out!

|Siguiendo la estela de su anterior disco.Este es mas compacto,tambien se nota que habian pasado dos años mas con respecto al 1º,el disco lo produce otro clásico de esa época como era Beau Hill,el disco me sigue sonando a grupos como Surgin,rock melódico de facil entrada,y de temas me quedo con el tema titulo,Rat Race y The Nightmare Begins.VALE LA PENA.
||Date: June 21, 2003 at 14:02|
|i think the opener 'don't look back' is one of the best songs in the genre, i heard it for the first time as a kid on a belgian radiostation in 1985..yes , i know, i have a good memory.. this band is truly great
||Date: November 22, 2003 at 10:25|
|IS MIKE SLAMER FROM THIS PLANET? AAAAAHHH MEGA MASTERPIECE, BOTH STREETS C.DS ARE A GEM IF YOU SEE THEM SOMEWHERE BUY THEM YOU WON'T REGRET IT. 10/10 CLASSIC!!!

|AORMILWAUKEE, you know your classics ! This is indeed an ALL TIME CLASSIC ! The first is good, but this is the real deal ! How can you g wrong with people like Slamer and Walsh ! A MUST HAVE !!!!
||Date: November 29, 2003 at 6:51|
|Great Sound! A Must Buy
||Date: January 1, 2004 at 16:49|
|...one of the world`s best AOR/melodic. BRILLIANT!!!Buy it!!

|Dan...The one I have had the sign by ATLANTIC records on the back, and on the disc itself it says, For Promotional Use Only. Is that a bootleg too.??
|Heavy Harmonies Owner|
||Date: May 1, 2004 at 21:59|
|I'm guessing no, that yours is legit and quite rare. The story as it was given to me, was that a handful of CD promos made it out before the release was shelved. That's why the bootlegs sounded so good, since the audio of the boots was taken from one of these original Atlantic promos. Of course, since both Streets albums have officially and legally been released on CD by Wounded Bird Records, the issue is somewhat moot...

|Thanks for the information Dan. Its a damn good album.
|From: AOR freaky
||Date: May 2, 2004 at 8:44|
|CLASSIC stuff indeed !!!
||Date: May 3, 2004 at 13:05|
|Enough with the 'freak' jokes, as this time I totally agree with Sir Freddy (btw old chap I hope that now you're doing well). This second STREETS album is an absolute masterpiece of his own : just listen to the opening riff for the song "Don't Look Back" and you'll know you're in for a real AOR treat ! The closest thing to happiness on CD and really essential to any respectable collection. 10/10
||Date: May 4, 2004 at 5:59|
|Offisial released now on Wounded Bird.
||Date: August 15, 2004 at 17:32|
|A true classic.Walsh sings his nuts off and puts in the right amount of keys.Mike Slamer plays in his own imitible style.Better than the 1st album,just,but the SHAKEDOWN-LIVE cd shows the boys in really good form,personally speaking.

|HEY AMIGO 9 CHAMPIONS COMO QUE VALE LA PENA, ESTA JOYA ES INVALORABLE Y MERECE LOS MAS ALTOS ELOGIOS Y SI TENGO QUE ESCOGER UN TEMA EN PARTICULAR SERIA INJUSTO YA QUE TODOS LOS TEMAS SON JOYAS ABSOLUTAS DEL AOR.

|From: Nick Clarkson
||Date: October 11, 2004 at 6:08|
|Both the Streets albums are superb and up there with the Spys albums as best AOR ever releases ever, but I guess this one has a slight edge on the 1st. I had a bootleg copy but both have been released officially on the Wounded bIrd label as Slamer mentioned above. It's a good job as my vinyl versions are practically worn out.Mike Slamer plays up a storm on this and Steve Walsh's vocals are as stunning as ever. A fantastic album...as they used to say Buy or Die!

|ES TAN COMPLETO COMO EL DE BEAU GESTE DEL 86 Y CON EL MISMO ESTILO UN ALBUM MUY SIMILAR EN SONIDO, SIMPLEMENTE INCOMPARABLES.
||Date: June 25, 2005 at 7:33|
|MARAVILLOSO! Una vez mas coincido con Rafo, esto es una joya. me recuerda mucho a Survivor, incluso a Toto en algunas canciones. Ademas es muy completo, no sobra ni una... y ese temazo: Hit n' run! Por cierto Phoenix, cuando tengas la pagina de tu top 1000 ya me avisarás!
||Date: June 25, 2005 at 19:19|
|Damn, translating the spanish comments makes me smile out LOUD.
||Date: November 16, 2006 at 19:14|
|I have listened to the first one and this quite often lately and I have to say this is better AOR imo. Each song has a bombastic quality and suger sweet melodies the first one lacks. Still both cd's are recommended-although this goes the extra mile with the brilliant title track, "Don't Look Back", "Broken Glass" and "I Can't Wait".
||Date: February 7, 2007 at 13:47|
|DAN I WANT TO EXPRESS MY DEEP THANK YOU! THE JOB YOU DO IS UNBELIEVABLE PROMOTING THE MUSIC WE LOVE! KEEP ON!

|Gran disco llenos de riffs y solos de guitarras maravillosos a cargo del mago Mike Slamer, todos los temas son excelentes,ese comienzo lleno de fuerza Don´t look back impresionante,The nightmare begins mi favorita que tales riffs!! Hit´n run,Crimes in mind,Can´t wait,Rat race(otra de mis favoritras),todo,todo el album es grandioso de principio a fin,como dije riffs matadores y solos mágicos,obra maestra con ese estilo incomparable de hard AOR,9.5/10.
||Date: June 16, 2007 at 22:47|
|got these at a Christian record store in the 80's on cassette and still have em!!!!! I like this one a tad better then the debut, great melodic hard rock, Don't Look Back is a classic, great band!!!

|FANTASTIC ALBUM!! Un disco mas trabajado que el anterior, mas contundente y me parece que con mas calidad en sus composiciones, aqui en esta ocasión en onda mas Leppard, especialmente en temas como "Nightmare Begins", también destaca la contundencia de "Don´t Look Back"; la excepcional "Crimes In Mind" y la misteriosa "Gun Runner" dan muestras del poderío de este disco... RECOMENDADISIMO!!!
|From: juan carlos
||Date: August 13, 2007 at 20:15|
|Gran disco, no es de las mas grandes voces la de Steve Walsh pero esta ok, musicalmente el disco es un clásico sin lugar a dudas y Mike Slamer es el que realmente se sale, que solos!! son lo mejor del disco, Seguro que sí. "The Nightmare Begins"(que lo versionara los SteelHouse Lane de muy buena forma tambien) es una pasada, se te queda en el cerebro!. Instant Classic. 9/10
|From: Carlos A.
||Date: August 14, 2007 at 11:40|
|Yeah muy bueno, innegable la progresion respecto al anterior trabajo, al menos en las melodias pues el conjunto instrumental es igual de solido y lo encabeza como debe ser el mago SLAMER y claro tambien Steve Walsh.... Todo lo que contiene esta joya es AOR jodidamente clasico, energico, y con efectivismo a discrecion inmejorables: "Don't Look Back" (un temazo que lo tiene TODO), "Hit 'N Run", "Crimes in Mind" y demas. Esto es el AOR que sobrevive al tiempo!!!! Invalorable.
||Date: August 19, 2007 at 18:27|
|I bought this on the strong recommendations here and frankly I wasn't blown away as I expected to be. This is by the numbers AOR with quality musicianship. Just not my cup of tea, sorry.
||Date: August 22, 2007 at 8:45|
|I totally agree with You Rycheage. This one is not half as good as "1st". You should try that one instead! "1st" is a totally different story with the guitarplaying being better, and the melodies have a lot more to offer. This one was a little too anonymous.
|From: rick kerch vzla
||Date: July 13, 2010 at 22:35|
|Well if "1st" was a great release from head to toes then "Crimes In Mind" is just a mind blower!!!!..this is extremely a highly recommended piece of AOR!...from the purest essence of it!..."Don't Look Back" is such a great track a with a very nice video(you can watch it at youtube's),"The Nightmare Begins" is another killer track,"Broken Glass" is a highlight","Hit'n Run" is a great rock tune,"Crimes In Mind" is good "crime" so good that is a favorite,"Gun Runner" is another highlighted song,u want another rock track?.."Rat Race" gives u that and "Turn My Head" closes the mayhem of greatness in what way...EXCELLENT!!!...a bombastic release,superb!..just buy!!!.98/100.:d:d:d!!!

|Yeah, I agree with Rick that this is a highly recommended piece of AOR. While it doesn't have much catchy hooks, it definitely has solid songs. Definitely top notch musicianship and song quality; great guitar playing thanks to Mike Slamer. Just a very solid and well played 1985 AOR-hard rock release. 90/100
||Date: October 24, 2012 at 3:17|
|I have 2 songs that were given to me a while back to be put on cd by a fan of streets and he said that these were by streets and the songs are excellent. I believe the titles were "another world" and "I'm wasting time". Can anyone tell me if streets did infact make any othe songs?
