¡ROTUNDA OBRA MAESTRA!Si se juntan dos monstruos de nuestro rollo como Jay Graydon y sobre todo Clif Magness con ganas de hacer las cosas bien no podia salir otra cosa.AOR suave pero con buena presencia de guitarras,temas antológicos como puedan ser Insincire(que baladón),From the Beginning,bueno para que seguir es un disco absolutamente MAGISTRAL y lleno de feelin.No busqueis temas marchosos sobre todo buscad EXQUISITEZ por que la hay Y MUCHA.

From: Xabofar Date: December 22, 2002 at 18:01
Coincido. Es uno de los auténticos clásicos de los 90. Buscarlo porque merece mucho la pena. También está muy bien el "Solo" de Clif Magness que creo que es de 1994

From: ROB GARCIA Date: January 19, 2003 at 16:03
the quality of this album is very high.monstrous aor with superb songs and production.cliff magness is amazing throughout the whole album.i believe this one is highly prized by collectors all over the world.NO WONDER WHY!a piece of aor history.

From: robert Date: February 20, 2003 at 20:29
Magistral!! Criminal se sale, pero todo el disco es la Ostia d bueno!! No os lo perdais, si lo q os mola es el AOR mas suave, osea WEST COAST pero d muchos kilates!

Will somebody sell me this cd? Email address is:

From: pablo Date: November 15, 2003 at 13:43
Obra maestra del AOR,la primera vez que oí el tema"Insincere" se me estremeció el alma ,disco de obligada presencia en cualquier coleccion melodica que se precie

From: Chris Date: December 1, 2003 at 18:48
I actually dug this one out of the vault in my house the other day and forgot just how good this release is. This is absolutely superb. Buy, Buy, Buy, if you can find.

From: Joo Hong Park Date: December 2, 2003 at 12:14
Oh! My God!!! Wonderful ballad "I Don't Want to Say Goodnight" killing Track~ hear it now~

From: Gabi Date: December 21, 2003 at 6:32
Qué dos grandes monstruos!!! Jay Graydon y Cliff Magness...Que se puede esperar? Una obra maestra. 10 canciones. La mayoría obras maestras ;D

From: ROBERT Date: December 23, 2003 at 13:29
fALTAN EL SOLITARIO Q hizo el Jay Garydon, y el d CLIFF MAGNESS por nombrar solo 2 discos como este d Planet 3 absolutamente acojonantes e imprescindibles d puro WEST COAST //AOR!!!

From: borja Date: February 27, 2004 at 19:23
el descubrimiento tardio de mi vida. el disco con mas clase, glamour, elegancia y mas melodiosos de west coast puro que he descubierto ultimamente. Ojala mas artistas supieran dar con el alma de la musica como estos dos monstruos. No puedo dejar de oirlo, ni pienso hacerlo. Lo mas bonito hecho jamas. El tema insincere es lo mas bonito que escuchado en toda mi vida junto con el "don´t call my name" de los tambien grandes King of hearts en su disco del mismo titulo...en la honda planet 3 total, so

From: Date: March 5, 2004 at 9:35
check out the new one from planet 3( gems unearthed )`s awsome...beautiful mixture of ballads and real AOR tunes.

From: Borja Date: March 19, 2004 at 19:20
Por cierto. Quien quiera cambiar musica de este estilo (West coast) aqui tiene mi mail para mandarme lista y yo enviar la mia. Un saludo:

Definition of westcoast aor, many cds after this one, just grown up from it.Other words, if you like westcoast aor, you cannot dislike this album

From: rocky Date: March 20, 2004 at 8:07
just got this album,and it`s just awsome. beautiful songs,some perhaps reminding a little bit of CHICAGO`s later albums,very melodic. is absolutely one of the best albums ever.....

From: TIM (2) Date: June 2, 2004 at 9:57
One of the top 5 CDs in my collection, and would be higher if they'd left off the Bill Cantos' track at the end (which presumably was recorded later than the rest). If this CD had ended with the track "Tonight Youre Mine" from the new "Gems Unearthed" CD then this would be THE ultimate.

From: rocketron Date: July 12, 2004 at 12:22
Just bought the re-issue of this.The last track is a song titled "Dreamers" and not "Ever After Love" as listed here.Totally amazing album!!. Is the material on "Gems Unearthed" as good as this ?

From: TIM (2) Date: July 12, 2004 at 12:52
Rocketron: "Gems Unearthed" is definitely not as good as this (but then, what is?), and it's easy to see why they left most of it off here. They're rough mixes of some of these tracks, other unreleased tracks, and one from Cliff Magness' "Solo" album. A few decent tracks but it's not a cohesive album, and the sound quality is ropey at best. Unless you see it dirt cheap I would stick to playing this, and make sure you have Cliff Magness' magnificent "Solo" too as it's every bit as good as this...

From: rocketron Date: July 12, 2004 at 12:56
Thanks Tim. I will look out for the Cliff Magness album.

From: BWH"Indonesia" Date: August 20, 2004 at 7:24
Imagine if Mickey Thomas or Joseph Williams took part on the voice lines and Steve Lukather,Dan Huff or Michael Landau played along with Jay. Wow.

From: rocketron Date: September 16, 2004 at 5:36
TIM(2). Managed to get the Clif Magness "Solo" CD. Agree it is as good as this. Any idea what the Jay Graydon solo stuff is like ? He is not listed on this site. Cheers.

From: TIM (2) Date: September 16, 2004 at 6:26
Cliff Magness is a great songwriter/producer. His involvement in other projects have led to me buying great pop/rock albums like O-Town's 2nd, Clay Aiken. Graydon's famed for soul and mowtown work largely, but in the westcoast field he made the 'Airplay' album, which is very dated (1979),"Airplay for the Planet" is decent w/c album, but not in the Planet 3/"Solo" league by any stretch. If you love Chicago/King of Hearts/L.A Cowboys etc then you'll like Graydon's stuff, but it's not really AOR.

From: Rycheage Date: October 6, 2004 at 13:50
Classy West coast AOR. Lush keys and fantastic guitars highlight this awesomely played disc. The musicianship is top notch and production is clear and crisp. "Criminal" and "Welcome To Love" highlight an ingenius disc. Great stuff.

From: richb Date: November 3, 2004 at 7:47
Hi tech West coast AOR of the finest sort with just the right amount of guitar bite to maintain the interest level. Unfortunately their recent "Gems unearthed" is very bland. What a disappointment!

From: Wachen Date: March 22, 2005 at 14:44
Great album! Clif (does he really spell with one f, and if so, WHY?) Magness is magnificent! And guitarmaster Jay Graydon is brilliant as usual.. And the songs are A class, a definitive must BUY!

From: Joan Date: March 23, 2005 at 12:04
Tengo que escucharlo ya!

From: z4roxx Date: March 23, 2005 at 13:31
Superb aor,this is super-aor played with class,touch and absolute style.The style is identical to Cliff Magness/solo album(maybe a little more poppish)and both are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!9.5/10.

From: AOR freaky Date: March 23, 2005 at 15:45
Good CD, but SOOOOOOO poppy ! Agent is a death metal act in comparison !

From: TIM (2) Date: March 23, 2005 at 16:08
Anyone have the "Heart from the Big Machine" release with the different track on the end, and can tell me if it's any good?

From: z4roxx Date: March 24, 2005 at 10:20
I do have the jap press,I listen again it and I'll let you know about this one....

From: z4roxx Date: March 24, 2005 at 10:22
Freaky,I think you might like Death Metal,If you want I have hundred bands to recommend you ahahahahahaha!

From: z4roxx Date: March 27, 2005 at 12:18
Tim(2),definitely the bonus"I will be loving you"from the jap press is one of the best songs of this cd.Personally I consider"From the beginning"in my top 10 aor songs of ever....

From: TIM (2) Date: April 2, 2005 at 4:39
Thanks Z4roxx, Just got the Jap pressing and "I Will be Loving" you is just an unbelievable ballad. Everyone who owns this but hates the Bill Cantos track on the end ought to seek out the "Heart from a Big Machine Release" to get this MONSTER track. The Jap version of this CD is a 10/10 IMO.

From: Lovedrive Date: March 15, 2006 at 11:12
POR FIN he escuchado esta joya! Esperaba mucho de este disco y no me ha defraudado en absoluto. Incluso me gusta más que el de Magness en solitario, aunque suenan distintos, este es mas suave. Born to Love, Welcome to love, The Day the Earth Stood Still ...

From: Carlos A. Date: December 9, 2006 at 11:13
Despues de oirlo un par de veces, descubro un fantastico disco temas como esas joyas west-coast "Insincere",(escarapelante cancion),"The Day the Earth Stood Still",(T-bell,Chicago,Michael Mc.donald, Ray parker junior, etc )"Only Your Eyes",o la radiante "From the Beginning" van directas al corazon, aunque es cierto por momentos caen en melodias pop, el esquema de AOR sofisticado y elegante esta muy presente. Wonderfull piece.

From: sanxdowntherainbow Date: June 27, 2007 at 21:43
OUTSTANDING slab of WestCoast AOR (best genre ever!), Better than TOTO or Chicago? well...(maybe) YEAH! This album is simply amazing, the magic it has, the wizardy of the musicians (amazing studio musicians), and Cliff Magness voice just takes this album straight to HEAVEN. The emotional ''Insincere'' is the greatest ballad of all time, Criminal (gotta love it!)is another treasure, not a filler here, just classics. OUT OF THIS WORLD! 1000/1000

From: newscandi Date: August 18, 2007 at 16:23
This is a piece of music with Ingredients of everything we like : AOR, westcoast and some hi tech moments (1st song). Of course, no hard rock or metal. In fact, I think brilliant tracks like "Born to love" or everything else from the (better) first half of the album is perfect pure AOR, maybe a little westcoasish compared to classic AOR songs from BENNY MARDONES, OUTSIDE EDGE, VAN STEPHENSON, LIONHEART, STRANGEWAYS etc. etc., so descrition WC AOR is totally right. 87/100

From: ROBERT Date: November 23, 2007 at 20:26
Absolutamente Genial este Disco, pero: ¿Donde estan los discos del Genio d RICHARD MARX?

From: juan carlos Date: March 17, 2008 at 19:33
Yeah Boys! Classic stuff! AOR / Westcoast(production). "Welcome To Love" is my fav. Only "Modern Girl" named it as a filler. Highly Recommended as the Cliff Magness "Solo" album. 9/10

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: May 3, 2008 at 19:42
WESTCOAST AOR MASTER PIECE!! A beautiful album, with amazing musicianship, compositions and a smooth and intense style. I consider this album as a part of the Graydon, Ballard and Magness Family Tree, i mean, because all their albums are related. And talking about this album, what more can i say? In this record we can find those Westcoast touches which mixed with the best Lite AOR melodies, by the way, made by genius like Graydon at his highest level and a true AOR legend singer like Clif Magness. Magness voice is a blend of Joseph Williams and Bryan Adams...

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: May 3, 2008 at 19:49
which brings that passion and feeling to the album. The sound of this album goes in a very TOTO(Joseph Williams era), CHICAGO and L.A. COWBOYS vein, with a little more Pop oriented style, but with great taste. A very solid album, plenty of melodies and hooks with songs like "Born To love" (catchy and dinamic), "From The Beginning", "Welcome To Love", the astonishing "Criminal" and one of the most beautiful ballads that i have ever heard in my entire life: "Insincere": wow what a feeling and what a passionate song!!. Great Album

From: newscandi Date: May 4, 2008 at 15:40
I'm with you here... but you haven't heard much power ballads in your life yet, have you ?? INSINCERE is good and passionating but there are plenty of other breathtaking ones out there

From: aorfan700 Date: October 22, 2008 at 11:49
this is a great album. It is available via Jay Graydon's website at normal price so you don't have to pay through the roof plus v important to note the sound quality is far better on this version than on any other release cause it is seriously remastered by Jay who I am now convinced is a very good mastering engineer after hearing several albums he has just greatly improved on. The song Dreamers (which is the new bonus track on the Graydon website release) is also my favourite ending song of all (each region had a different 10th song and Jay Graydonhas continued the tradition). It reminds of Richard Page Broken Wings. I actually like the Bill Cantos song a lot however, unlike most people or so it would seem. It reminds me of Airplay or something. It definately sounds a bit odd as the ending but I like it and I like the cover art best to this sweden version (even though most will say the Japan art is the best). Of course, I will be loving you I like too (japan 10th song).

From: aorfan700 Date: October 22, 2008 at 11:54
SO...for informational purposes. Original release of this album was 1991 in Japan only. It was called 'Planet 3- Heart From The Big Machine' (10th song; I will be loving You), In 1992 it was then released in Sweden by sony music. In Sweden it was retitled 'Planet 3- Music From The Planet, Featuring Jay Graydon' (all songs were the same except for the 10th song. The 'unique 10th song' for sweden's release was 'Ever After Love'. Cover art for sweden release was the moon like planet with face/space floor. Shortly thereafter it was released in Germany too by 'Beverly records', with yet another cover design. A Yellow/Blue/Red design with photography of the sea and birds. Last song was the same as the sweden version (ever after love) and the title was the same except that now it was 'Jay Graydon, featuring Planet 3- music from the Planet'....then....finally......

From: aorfan700 Date: October 22, 2008 at 11:55
There is the welcomed 4th version which is the USA 'remaster' as talked about at the start (unique new 10th song: Dreamers) - a Great ending song and great remastering to the album. Try to get this version whatever you do, because the sound is so much more impacting. 10/10 for westcoast fans

From: aor4sale Date: August 25, 2009 at 10:29
A Westcoast wet dream! This is an absolute gem and every track is awesome.

From: LoquitoAOR Date: October 23, 2011 at 22:08
Otra joya del AOR decantando hacia westcoast pero bien hecho, con un sonido y producción increíble, temas como Welcome to Love tocan el cielo, y ni que decir de Criminal un tema bien pegajoso, no olvidar de la balada Insincere, una obra maestra del genero, ultra recomendable!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: March 18, 2012 at 19:18
A very pleasant Westcoast/Hi-Tech AOR release...some songs remind me of Chicago(especially the ballads or softies) and Al Jarreau("Ever After Love",a nice song)..."Born To Love","From The Beginning"(catchy),"Criminal"(the best song of the album IMO)& "Modern Girl"(powerful Hi-Tech AOR beat) are such songs that will draw a in your face of happiness...87/100
