żAlguien sabe algo d este disco?

From: Gringo Date: October 24, 2003 at 17:32
Great stuff from Minnesota. Re-release from Metal Mayhem has 4 additional tracks which are quite good. I would label this release more Hard Rock than AOR though.

From: Karl Sten Date: October 25, 2003 at 23:50
Interesting sidenote- one of the members of this band has a more well-known brother-Tommy Bolin...

From: jp Date: November 22, 2003 at 20:14
tres bon groupe, un album plus hard rock que aor. Excellent chanteur et guitaristes. Pas un temps mort et production dantesque.

From: Scooter Gang Date: February 5, 2004 at 16:41
okay, mullets galore on the cover, and i was listening to it right before I went to sleep last night. First track, the song was basic, well produced for a indie unknown band. The guitar riff was nothing to get excited about, so I waited for the solo. The guitar solo was off key, very dissapointing. That was it for the cd. I feel like Simon from American Idol.

I am a fan of this Twin Citites band of the early-mid eighties. Good shows, good melodic hard rock. Had this album at one time and remember it as more of a reflection of the bands flash, which was considerable, than of their function. Solid band, unremarkable album.

From: Rycheage Date: June 9, 2004 at 23:12
For those of you who are fans of Icon, then you'll find a home with these guys - even if they are halfway across the continent. That's just a general comparison, but it hits home on most tracks.

From: JP Date: June 28, 2004 at 13:04
What a bunch of shit music.

From: Geoff Date: March 3, 2005 at 2:22
I seem to be saying this with a lot of the "D" releases, but this again is pretty average hard rock. It's a good enough disc, but really lacks any form of killer punch. Decent 80's metal / hard rock. Reminds me of DeAllen at times.

From: z4roxx Date: March 3, 2005 at 9:20
I think this is the classic cd that you must hear more times before doin'a comment.Production is not good but these guys have great ideas,IMO.Title track has a sensation opening riff,original and very catchy,"Cold and lonely nights"is an excellent melodick song,"Hold on tight"IMO is the finest and catchiest track in this disc(and one of my fave in general!),"Give ya all my lovin'"is another great song indeed.That's one of my fave indie melodick,but I respect all different tastes on this one.

From: Andy Date: April 2, 2005 at 0:18
Brian Bart is a guitar wizard. Judging from the comments I've read here, I'll not buy this one, but Bart's "Always Busy" solo ablum is great. And the "Outsiders" albums he produced and played on are phenomenal...but good luck finding those...

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: September 26, 2005 at 0:12
Good Hard Rock album with any moments of AOR, yeah for fans of Icon-Lion, la verdad es mas un album de Hard Rock al estilo Icon(etapa dura) o Lion, claro con cortes que rozan el AOR, el album no es bueno del todo pero cuenta con grandes cortes que dan valor al disco Stand Alone(Gran tema de Hard/AOR a medio tiempo) Firepower(trallazo de Hard Rock a lo Lion) Cold and Lonely Nights(corte onda Icon) Walkin' Out the Door un disco nada facil de conseguir, para coleccionistas a muerte.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: September 26, 2005 at 10:05
Bueno se me olvido comentar sobre su EP que sacaron el 85 con el nombre de Makin´ Your Own Rules, donde todavia se encontraban Johnnie Bolin y Brian Lorenson en este album solo figuran en los creditos, un EP con 4 cortes ciertamente Buenazos de Hard Melodico/AOR y Megararo como suele pasar con la mayoria de EP y Mini albums sacados en el Mundo del AOR y Hard-Rock Melodico, da gracia saber que muchos de esos EP ineditos tienen mejores cortes que los mismos albums y eso ocurre en muchas bandas.

From: z4roxx Date: November 2, 2005 at 12:00
I consider Dare Force one of my fave indie bands in melodick scene.except 2 songs the rest killers!In the title track what a terrific guitar work!My fave are the first 2,”Cold and lonely nights”,”Hold on tight”and tracks N.8 and 9,BUY IT!!!!!!!!!

From: Flashback Date: March 24, 2006 at 5:06
Great surprise to see this has been re-released. Actually, the songs themselves are good but not great. But anyone who saw them play live in the 80's can remember the dynamic duo of Bart and O'Neil - both amazing guitarists alone - creating a synergy that was legendary.

From: shoemaker Date: November 10, 2007 at 10:20
The first few tracks are strong, the rest suck more or less.

From: hernanHRM/AOR Date: May 15, 2009 at 23:32
That great album, this one is the type of album that I look for an Melodic Hard AOR very but very well. long life to Hard ROck Melodic/AOR 80's 80/10

From: metalhead4life Date: September 1, 2009 at 11:37
1, 5, and 10 are cool. Especially 10 (Evil Woman). A few other ones that are decent, the rest eh. Does have a good 80's hard rock sound that I like; takes you back. Good guitars, decent higher vocals, drums pretty solid. 70/100.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: April 15, 2010 at 18:17
Heavy Rock/Metal with a couple of AOR tracks and with a good singer is what we have in here..pretty good stuff really...my faves ones are "Stand Alone"(AOR,an excellent track),"Firepower"(kinda Heavy Metal,a good track),"Cold And Lonely Nights"(AOR with a nice chorus),"Hold On Tight"(similar to track #2),"Walkin' Out The Door"(for me one of the best track of the album),"Give Ya All My Loving"(good chorus)and "Evil Woman"(this is the other one i consider along with track # 7 a highlight song)..try to get the cd, you won't be dissapointed at all..87/100

From: Hairbanger Date: May 24, 2010 at 19:42
David Reece sings on that one, not Karl Young.

From: happy2849 Date: March 7, 2011 at 13:50
On the lite side of melodic rock/AOR with some very nice tracks. When I'm in the mood this fits the bill. I have the re-issue with the 4 bonus tracks which makes it worth having. Not for everyone but most will find it enjoyable.
