Has anyone got any words on this one??

From: AOR freaky Date: February 5, 2004 at 5:43
David, this is a great AOR record, man ! You should add it to your collection ! Pure eighties AOR, class release !

From: koogles Date: February 15, 2004 at 12:12
Yes, agreed! This is one of those ESSENTIAL CDs... better than 'Cast the First Stone' and on par with great releases by CHINA, AVIATOR, a slightly heavier HONEYMOON SUITE. Love the keys and shamelessly big production... I can't imagine any true 80s rocker not liking this.

From: Rockhead Date: March 17, 2004 at 5:17
Very strong release, however I think the line up is slightly wrong as Yul Vasquez played guitar. This is a stronger, fuller produciton than the first with a re-recorded version of Running back which is awesome. A must have melodic rock monster.

The line up listed here is for the 'Other' Band Urgent that (Canada) released the excellent 'Timing' album listed elsewhere on the site.

From: TIM Date: March 17, 2004 at 13:24
See if that don't look better, Jez.

hello I am called michael * I am French I adore this group I am has the search for a Copy Cd or original Cd my address e-mail: thank you in advance

From: Kehr Date: May 6, 2004 at 4:37
Good record. Similar to Loverboy. Very tough to find on CD.

From: TIM (2) Date: May 12, 2004 at 4:41
Great 80's stuff, big layered sound with just enough keys. Have seen on eBAY recently for around 30 which is a bargain. Can't wait for the new Diving For Pearls either, with the excellent David Prater producing it should be every bit as good as the first...

From: TIM (2) Date: March 21, 2005 at 5:54
Playing this one again as we speak. Stunning keyboard-laden AOR monster this, and pretty rare now but worth every single penny. The ballad 'All Over the World' is just huge with layers of harmonies, and 'Always be There' is just an awesome AOR tune with great keyboard fills. If you like Aviator and 80's Loverboy then add this to your collection ASAP. 9/10.

Good as a marshmallow bag!!!!!!.

From: KurtmanJP Date: March 9, 2008 at 0:13
Is the "Running Back" on this album the same one on "Cast The First Stone"?

From: rocket Date: March 10, 2008 at 9:52
Yes KurtmanJP - same track

From: shoemaker Date: March 27, 2008 at 17:39
Just ok, lights and shadows here. RUNNING BACK is a fine track.

From: jazzyjm Date: April 25, 2009 at 20:47
Does any one know where I can get this CD cheaper then $99.00 US?

From: andi Date: February 15, 2012 at 10:18
best song"Extra Extra"....very kick Styx

From: pompster80 Date: July 13, 2012 at 14:47
Again a superb AOR-album with layers of keys, available at a reasonable price. Nevertheless, their debut was much stronger. Highly recommended!

From: juan carlos Date: August 23, 2014 at 12:15
I already commentted this one a long time ago, what's up? well, This album is just good to me,yeah Clean Production, Keyboards everywhere, big choruses, good songs but not the great thing in my book, maybe because i'm not into Pomp AOR too much and there are many uptempo songs. If you love stuff like Styx mixed with Honeymoon Suite this is for you. My favorite tracks are "Always Be There" "Running Back" & the ballad "Turning The Knife". 85/100

From: hair metal again Date: March 24, 2017 at 3:46
pretty good release for URGENT but not as good as stated above !under Tom Allom s guidance the result should be bigger ,as the songs are well performed but dont have many hrilling hooks!standout track for me is "pain(love is a victim)" which is a great song indeed!good stuff ,but not first class
