To Me one of the best overlooked cd's of all time. Features the future singer of Kingdom Come. I still have it on cass. and made a cd from it. I'd say this would be hard to find on CD? The second cd wasn't even close to this one even though it has it's moments. This one however is a must have!

From: Richard H. Date: June 19, 2002 at 12:41
This was an album that was very underrated in its time.Features Lenny Wolf(future Kingdom Come Vocalist),Bruce Gowdy(Unruly Child,World Trade) and Jody Cortez who I believe did some drum tracks on Cinderellas' "Night Songs" album

From: C-line Date: June 26, 2002 at 10:50
This is one of my all time favorite CDs, great vocals by Lenny. I have on tape and album but now looking for it on CD...

From: Van Alan Date: September 12, 2002 at 22:55
A good CD. 'Break Down The Walls' is one of my all-time favorite 80s Hard Rock songs. The rest of the CD doesn't compare to the first track, but it's still solid.

From: Metal_Ed Date: October 6, 2002 at 22:28
I have "Burns like a star" on tape but have yet to find it on Cd. I was lucky to find "Their best of" which I bought about 11 yrs. ago and never saw it around so I'm guessing is pretty rare also.

From: Brennan Date: October 9, 2002 at 23:30
Just an FYI to anyone interested, Burns Like a Star was just re-released in Europe. Go to www.baltcd.com and you can buy it for $11.99. Hopefully this makes a few fans smile...

It would make me even happier if the website you mentioned wasn't blank.

From: Metal_Ed Date: November 21, 2002 at 23:35
Bill @ Restless and Wild Imports has a copy he's selling...Grab it before he lists it on his site!! His E-mail is: rivethead@80smetal.com Tell him Ed set you.

From: fotzey Date: February 20, 2003 at 21:45
I don't know how a band like Stone Fury remained so ...unknown...!!Burns like a star is my all time favorite and it'll be for a long time from now on.

From: shocka d Date: February 26, 2003 at 6:16

From: rexeffect73 Date: March 2, 2003 at 22:50

From: rexeffect73 Date: March 2, 2003 at 22:53

From: type2guy Date: April 7, 2003 at 22:20
One of my all time fav albums from the 80's. Wore my cassette out listening to it. Luckily got a cd of it recently. Great album. Definatly overlooked. Much better than Kingdom Come efforts.

From: perfectstranger Date: June 13, 2003 at 9:16
this is one of the best hard rock cd's of all time in my mind,highlights are "life is too lonely" and "burns like a star" for me,it's too bad lenny wolf will be remembered for kingdom come and not this cd. does anybody remember seeing the video for break down the walls and life is too lonely i do they were played for a split second on usa's night flight show and radio 1990. anyone have a copy for sale? let me know i'll pay big bucks for a copy!!!!!second stone fury ablum let them talk was AWFUL!

no, not really sucks i think burns like a star was a good hard rock melodic album but i like so much the second effort, a question of tastes!!!

From: jztbcz Date: October 3, 2005 at 18:40
Hello all, I was hoping that one of you fellow Stone Fury fans could help me get a copy of the Burns Like a Star disc? Vinyl or cd, either one. I recently had my vinyl version stolen, I'm trying too get it recovered.. It's one of the most underrated discs I've ever had. It's in the catagory with Captain Beyonds first album ..

From: aMetalhead1966 Date: January 9, 2006 at 14:27
Still got this on tape...It's not aor IMO....I'd call it Hard Rock Lenny sings well and the songs and Playin are good....Hard to find on C.D.

From: alex_5150 Date: March 2, 2006 at 18:16
Give me a touch Just give me a taste There's nothing like this In the whole human race ---------------------------- Man I don't know man, but the song "Burns Like a star" just blows me away, it has that dark mood, spine chilling mood. Yoy may not like the whole album, but you should really listen to this song man. Cheers from mexico

From: juan carlos Date: January 16, 2007 at 14:19
Hardrock con toques misteriosos o AOR pero solo en algunos temas. La voz de Lenny nunca me gustó por cierto. "Break Down the Walls" es sin ninguna duda la mejor del disco, tremendo tema! y el que cierra el disco también otra maravilla de tema como es la misteriosa "Shannon You Lose" que tema ehh, me encanta. Los demas correctas y regulares. La 4,6,8 tambien en algo. La 5 y 7 muy a lo Led Zeppelin, lo peor del disco. Para fans de Lenny y vale solo por un par de temas IMO. 7.8/10

From: DonDefo Date: January 2, 2011 at 13:16
One of my favs CDS!! BREAK DOWN THE WALLS!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 9, 2011 at 13:43
Overlooked album like Tracy said in the first comment...Lenny Wolf sounds so Plant that is annoying sometimes but apart from that he is a great performer undoubtebly!!! ..."Break Down The Walls" is the best track 4 sure,"Life Is Too Lonely" is the AOrish one,"Don't Tell Me Why" & "Hold It" are great songs and the same goes to the strong mid tempo of "Shannon You Lose"...nothing else to add but the rate...86/100

From: Metal T Date: May 6, 2021 at 5:10
Never liked that stupid term "AOR",This was always just a good,solid rock record...Lenny completely stole the show on this one.Great,unmistakeable vox ala' Plant.This one had some serious potential to break big but all you have to do is look who put it out ----> MCA Records- the label where talented bands go to die,the horrible promotion etc. label that most know was one of the biggest rock graveyards going back then.Luckily for Lenny Kingdom Come was right around the corner...
