Suxx. I really dont like this. Spiro could do much better.

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: March 17, 2003 at 10:10
Tengo que reconocer que este disco no entra tan rapidamente como los dos anteriores,es un disco mucho mas pausado,mas complejo,vamos un disco que hay que tener los cinco sentidos y un poquitin mas para que te entre.Y os aseguro que al final te entra(no todos los temas)y descubres algunos temas realmente buenos.Todo esto que he dicho no vale para Back To The Promised Land pues este tema ya te llama la atención desde el principio,y es posiblemente uno de los mejores temas de Mark Spiro.ACEPTABLE.

I'm doing my best...and I thank you all for yuor comments ...both good and bad....Mark Spiro

From: Great Dane Date: December 18, 2003 at 18:27
Hey Spiro. Because of your comments I just pulled out the disc again and I must admit, that its not as bad as I thought. First of all the sound is fantastic. Track 1 is a cool rock track, I really like it. Track two has the great drum beat to it, which I have heard on Giants cd´s. Cool stuff. Track 7 is beautiful. I love it. Track 7, hmm at first I thought, Finally ''A red hot rock track' The chorus is superb, love the tune, But it never really turns into a rock track. Its more like a noisy ....

From: Great Dane Date: December 18, 2003 at 18:32
track, with little direction. I would love to hear that track, rewritten and turned into a real driving rock track. Track 10-11 are awesome. The whole cd is filled with cool sounds, and theres lots of great moments on it. I`ll let it stay on my stereo for a couple of days, and see what happens. Stay cool, and keep rockin´

Personalmente no me convence nada este disco... tampoco me gusta la voz.. 5 sobre 10!!

From: run2u Date: April 1, 2004 at 20:40
Enorme.Evidentemente el CD no es más grande que los demás,si no,no cabría en el lector(ok,parida innecesaria).Pero realmente se trata de un disco majestuoso,AOR con una brillantez compositiva cada vez más difícil de escuchar últimamente(y no señalaré a nadie).El fallo,como ya apuntó alguien,una producción que le quita empaque al resultado final.Y atención,porque podemos estar ante uno de los temas más grandes de la historia:I'LL BE THERE.Sólo por ello,inevitable ponerle un 10.run2u69@hotmail.com

From: Gazza Date: August 17, 2004 at 18:23
Don't know why this CD is getting so much stick. Its as good as Devotion if not slightly better. The production on this CD is top notch. Devotion was a bit too loud and destorted in places. Top CD.

From: Geoff Date: August 18, 2004 at 2:30
This is a pretty damn good CD. I love' I'll be there' and the excellent 'Back to the promised land' (especially that solo!). Overall, another good, solid album of slightly same-ish songs... but great lyrics, great songs. Great stuff!

From: Axe Machine Date: October 28, 2004 at 5:55
Don't know how anyone can afford to not have this disc. Picked it up in Germany a few years ago for pennies and get regular listening pleasure from it :-) Best spiro production yet

From: Lovedrive Date: April 19, 2006 at 15:04
"Halflight", "Rain in her heart"... me encantan!!. No es como el "Now is then..." pero es un muy buen disco.

From: juan carlos Date: March 17, 2009 at 2:07
"Now is Then.." and "Devotion" are my 2 favorite Spiro albums. This "The stuff.." is fantastic indeed, and having guests as Pierce, Thompson and Huff is simply the best. "Rain in Her Heart" "I'll Be There" "Back to the Promised Land" "Love in a Western World" "I Made It So" "The Palm of Your Hand".. Welcome to the Spiro world and enjoy it. 9/10

From: tomdwa Date: June 6, 2020 at 14:48
I like this one much better than the previous album Devotion, it contains better songs and is (much) better produced. Live in a western world and Vendetta are solid aor-rockers, but my highlights are the very melodic tracks Fire and water, Rain in her heart and I made it so.
