Kyrie and Broken Wings are amazing AOR masterpieces.

From: Fog-hat Date: November 14, 2002 at 9:33
Not sure why this CD is on "HEAVY" Harmonies? Anyway, this is a good solid Pop Rock album. Not a bad song on it. My favorites are "Uniform of youth", "Don't slow down" and "Kyrie".

From: freddy de keyze Date: November 25, 2002 at 3:31
Good CD, but very soft. Guys, this is soft AOR, not Van Stephenson and co !!! But worth a listen, because the songs are good.

From: MALLORCA´S ROCK Date: November 25, 2002 at 4:33
puajjj!!! Nada solo tienes las dos baladillas, lol demás no son mas que una mezcla de New wave - aor nada

From: Gabi Date: December 23, 2002 at 13:37
Que dos canciones tan buenas (Kyrie y Broken Wings), y que mal arropadas!!!

From: vince Date: April 19, 2003 at 23:20
does anyone now which 80's bands have the same flavour as the song IS IT LOVE ???

From: TIM Date: April 20, 2003 at 4:43
I'll try to listen to it again and give my opinion. In case I forget, email me at and remind me.

From: koogles Date: April 20, 2003 at 18:27
Vince: one band you might like with a similar style to Mr. Mister is THE STABILIZERS who released only one album, "Tyranny" (Epic, 1986). The track "One Simple Thing" is very much along the lines of Mr. Mister's "Welcome to the Real World". Other bands you should check out include FARRENHEIT (self-titled debut from '87), PLANET 3 (featuring Jay Graydon from 1990) or BEAU COUP "Born & Raised on Rock n' Roll". All 4 bands play that tight studio-style AOR.

From: Ric Date: January 25, 2004 at 20:15
No disrespect to Heavy Harmonies but,....What in the hell is Mr.Mr. doing on here.I like alot of 80's pop music but these guys don't belong!!1Kyrie is an awesome reflective pop tune though!

From: AOR freaky Date: January 26, 2004 at 7:56
Ric, this is soft AOR, but good ! They really have their place here ! If Butch Walker and other alternative stuff is tolerated here, why not this, far better music ? !

From: Headbanger72 Date: January 31, 2004 at 18:47
Best non-heavy metal album of the 1980's. It's still good 19 years later.

From: Vancouver Date: February 14, 2004 at 1:17
I found it strange for this disc to be here. I will never sell my CD though, that's for sure. Gonna go with fog-hat. I also enjoyed "Black/White" and "Run To Her".

Black-White, Tangent Tears, Don't Slow Down, Uniform Of Youth and all the album, back 2 back, haves an awsome magical 80s feel. A pop masterpice!

este album tiene toques pop, pero tambien lite aor! es correcto que este aca, excelente clasico, le doy un 90/100 pure soft aor with poppy touch! very valid.

From: TIM Date: March 16, 2005 at 22:42
Glad to see this here. Kyrie and Broken Wings are great.

Brilliant, Hi-Tech AOR. Love every track on this cd equally, which is quite a rare thing for me. Love Richard Page's Vocal work on this aswell - one of the underated vocalists in the AOR/Westcoast field without doubt. An album definately worth more than the hits it produced in 'Broken Wings' & 'Kyrie'.

From: TIM Date: March 17, 2005 at 9:13
Wasn't claiming the rest was disposable there Jez. I just favor those.

From: Jez Date: March 17, 2005 at 9:21
Great songs TIM. If i had to choose one it would be 'Uniform Of Youth' I think, followed closely by 'Broken Wings'- Richard Page sounds amazing on this one.!!!

From: AOR freaky Date: March 17, 2005 at 12:16
Good CD, indeed ! But why is everyone here attacking Agent, while this is waaaaaaaaaay softer ? !

From: tomcat Date: March 18, 2005 at 0:50
This is a very good cd...and i know that this band is known for 'broken wings'but the rest is pretty good too...Anyhow, about "broken wings", it ain't's pure m a g i c

From: Rockhead Date: March 18, 2005 at 4:05
This Cd has that expensive 80's BIG production which makes it sound like a million dollars. Unlike some of th poorer recorded indie releases. Had some of those had this amount of cash chucked at it who knows-Great songs, great vocals, stellar production = classic AOR album

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: May 18, 2005 at 0:10
Por favor si me dan a elegir este con el de Agent - ST, este se lo lleva de encuentro, Uniform of Youth y Kyrie(las mejores) que cortes en el album de Agent pueden Igualar a estas Imposible, Broken Wings(la megabalada) y Don't Slow Down 2 grandes cortes mas y hay mas por ahi que ya no pongo, todo un señor album, a ver que opinan los demas criticos hispanos. larga vida a la buena musica que JAMAS PASARA DE MODA. y que Carajos el buen POP tambien debe estar en este gran Site. Great Lite/AOR 9/10.

From: JF Date: May 18, 2005 at 21:43
Kyrie y Broken Wings son canciones imprencindibles para cualquier amante del aor sin embargo para mi gusto las demas canciones no estan al mismo nivel , ojo no digo que sean malas. Otras que destacan son Is It Love y run to her. Una lastima que nadie se anime a sacar su disco inedito. Otra cosa Rafo que tal, un favor hablas de un grupo Idle Cure y comentas que el tough love parece al segundo de FM, uno de mis discos favoritos podrias mandarme una canción a mi correo

From: JF Date: May 18, 2005 at 21:45
haber si me animo a comprarlo, te lo agradecería.Soy de Lima

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 7, 2005 at 11:00
Hola Champions, gracias por tu recomendacion, claro que tengo el de Berlin(buen corte de los 80), sobre Body Electric el tema que mencionas Crime Of Passion no lo tengo yo tengo el album Walking Through Walls de ellos a menos que el que mencionas sea otra banda a ver que me dices, sobre Silent Running y The Koo no los tengo a ver si me dices a que suena el primero que no figura en ninguna parte, The Koo si tengo referencia, y en lo referente al tema de Mr Mister que mencionas ese si que tiene

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 7, 2005 at 11:01
una atmosfera como las que me gustan con ese sonido misterioso y Legendario(mi segunda favorita del album en lo referente a cortes asi) como las llamo pero otra cosa te digo si elijo la cancion mas Legendaria del album sin duda mi favorita es Uniform of Youth y es que esta es ALUCINANTE por todo lo que despliega el tema tanto el Aura y la Atmosfera que emana y transmite, lo mejor de ese corte son los Teclados que son de otra galaxia, cuando hablo de cortes con atmosferas asi es por lo que

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 7, 2005 at 11:02
me hacen sentir en este caso mi alma se llena de una energia y un aura listos para lo que sea en el momento de la verdad, sin miedo a nada, es por eso que el de Alien que veo no te agrada mucho tiene, y es que el corte de Alien es de lo mas misterioso con ese comienzo que no se encuentra asi nomas, son cortes diferentes al resto con Atmosferas que transmiten mas que solo buena musica, eso va mas alla, da vida energia y poder a tu alma(para el momento de la verdad), creo que algunos me tildaran

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 7, 2005 at 11:03
que estoy algo safado, pero lo que expreso sale de lo mas profundo de mi alma legendaria y espero no se acabe esta forma de sentir porque seria el fin de mi ser que ya esta en camino a eso pero sin perderlo, y cambiando de tema y hablando sobre esta JOYA que a algunos no gusta mucho solo repetire lo dicho arriba, un disco IMPRESCINDIBLE para todo amante del buen Rock una Joya Invalorable que tiene supercortes como Kyrie(es un corte como para disfrutarlo en el momento del triunfo eso transmite

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 7, 2005 at 11:04
cortes como este) y Broken Wings(las mas famosas y mas orientadas al AOR y que la gran mayoria ama) ahora Into my own Hands(el 3 corte con esa atmosfera), Tangent tears, Welcome to the real world, Black/White son 4 cortes mas de gran nivel muy buenos, Is it love y Run to her son los mas bajos desde mi punto pero tambien estan ok. asi que si no tienen esta Joya no se que esperan. saludos a todos los amantes del buen Rock de su amigo Rafo el Ave Fenix.

From: swriter Date: July 25, 2005 at 19:32
how good is this one, wonderful lighter aor stuff, top songs include Tangent tears, Love, bwings, Hands, Black, Kyrie, Run. Very strong album, almost a 10!!!! I miss this stuff, remember when the radio was full of this stuff!!!! never again!!! hahaha

From: Sex Driver Date: March 2, 2006 at 9:41
I had a dream!! i rememeber to be going to by car of the montains of Nevada State, I heard!"KIRIE - KIRIE" - seems funny, but it is not this music was in my head, I got to think that Mr.Mister it was CCM, really this changed my life,I began to love this! I don't understand,because they didn't leave a larger trace!! SIMPLY WONDERFUL!10/10

From: Lovedrive Date: August 4, 2006 at 10:27
En una palabra: KYRIE!!

From: YIRO SEVENTH Date: June 27, 2007 at 20:19
MUY BUEN DISCO DE HI TECH AOR, Claro que si. Inegable es la importancia de este disco, y en concreto de MR. MISTER. Ahora, aunque es un disco, que pueda ser considerado referente en esto del Lite AOR en su vertiente Hi Tech, pues no me parece una joya, ya que hay cortes como "Tangent Years" y "Don´t Slow Down" por ejemplo, que se exceden demasiado con los sintetizadores y toda esa onda Hi Tech, entonces ese exceso de teclados acaban ahogando a los coros y a la voz y dichos temas acaban...

From: YIRO SEVENTH Date: June 27, 2007 at 20:25
siendo intrascendentes. La mencionada "Uniform Of Youth" contiene un inicio de teclados contagioso; Destaca también "Run To Her", una balada finisima, de bonita melodía, sin duda de lo mejor del disco y dejo para el final 2 CLASICOS INMENSOS, los que suben el nivel del album considerablemente (con esos 2 ya vale la compra, sinceramente, no quisiera ni pensar que hubiera sido de éste disco sin esos 2 temazos): "Broken Wings"(Legendaria!) y la fantástica "Kyrie". 2 ABSOLUTOS CLASICOS!!!

From: MetalllianStallion Date: February 16, 2010 at 1:04
To set the mood before I listen to this one, I light candles while taking a scented steaming hot bath to hide my 'tangent tears'. Who want's to hand me the Loofah? A couple borderline soft AOR tunes on this one but overall along with this bands greatest hits releases make this a AC/pop group that no AOR/rock radio station would touch in the 80's. File this one under 'why is this band here',along with Cher,Shania Twain and soon to be submitted: WHAM - the mens room years.

From: BDrums1971 Date: August 14, 2010 at 0:06
This is one of those "perfect" cd's. You just wouldn't change a thing, it's so good. One of the best cd's I own. By the way, to anyone who loves this cd, I have found two others that sound very similar to this. Chris Eaton - Vision (a christian act, but very very good) and Kevin Raleigh - Delusions Of Grandeur. Both excellent cd's that sound very similar to Welcome To The Real World.

Two great songs; the rest are sorry to say below average.

From: dany69 Date: August 1, 2016 at 19:16
ok i'm agree with some peoples why this on here,but,,,,this is Radio pop aor radio Right,,,but Kyrie,,Broken Wings play again today on radio,,and this 2 songs are masterpieces,,tell me how many radio bands got this kind of quality songs those days,??????? NOT,,,,so Mr Mister deserve to be here,,,the 80s musics was so much better ,,,,
