Considered by a lot of people as a classic. I have to disagree. This is good AOR, but nothing special. AOR by numbers. But certainly worth selling if you like AOR.

From: John Date: August 6, 2003 at 13:32
Sounds dated now. The songs just aren't that strong. A couple of catchy tunes, but....

From: Al Date: January 13, 2004 at 13:18
AOR rules. And this Album as well. Me and Michelle is one of my all time favorites.

From: Metal Pete Date: January 14, 2004 at 14:19
Which album of theirs has 'This is Japan' on it? What a killer track

From: Al Date: January 14, 2004 at 16:17
Hey Metal Pete, itīs on "You Make It Look Easy". For more infos, look on www.dukejupiter.com. Al ;-)

From: Rycheage Date: March 13, 2004 at 23:08
Nice use of textures with sedate verses and heavier anthem chorus. 'Don't Turn Your Back' is an instant uptempo classic in the time honored mid 80's AOR tradition - genuine momentum supporting a memorable hook and killer chorus, not to mention those insistent pomp keys! It should have been the opening track. 'Top Of The Bay' operates in more sedate territory, revealing the abundant class and songwriting of this fine band.

From: espo Date: March 30, 2004 at 15:51
Though not perfect from start to finish, this is definitely a classy album with some memorable tracks: "Rescue Me", "Don't Turn Your Back", "Top Of The Bay", "A Woman Like You", not forgetting the superb anthem chorus of "Me And Michelle" (obligatory listening for AOR lovers). It's a shame that the remaining songs aren't so good. However, an underappreciated release. Le Roux fans should give it a try [89%]

From: Impaler Date: May 26, 2004 at 1:29
Not much memorable here, had this one on cassette and would not pay more than a dollar to replace it on CD.

From: Nick Clarkson Date: September 24, 2004 at 14:46
Great reviews when it came out drove me to buy it. Can't figure out what the fuss was about. Bit dull...very dull then! No longer in my collection.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 12, 2005 at 23:17
Average, la verdad este disco me decepciono yo habia leido muchas buenas criticas de esta banda y de este disco en muchos lares, hay muchos discos que merecen mas atencion y con menos puntos.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: December 5, 2011 at 20:56
Ummm...well average probably but acceptable i think...let's say that this band or album is neither hot nor cold...just acceptable at the end with somehow that typical AOR poppy sound(without being Hi Tech AOR)...my fave tracks are "She's So Hot"(the best cut of the album IMO),"Don't Turn Your Back","Me And Michelle" plus the couple of nice ones "Rescue Me" & "Top Of The Bay"...85/100

From: edwithmj Date: August 10, 2015 at 9:32
Really impressed with this southern-tinged AOR. The vocalist is excellent and really adds his own unique voice to the songs. If I had to compare him to someone it would be Gregg Allman. The addition of a fair few keyboards to the mix adds to the feel too. My picks from this one are: Rescue Me (nice mellow rocker), Top of the Day (smooth melodic keyboard intro leading to another mellow rocker with smooth vocals), Little Lady (very decent hard rocker with a "trucker" vibe and very catchy vocals and a meaty solo), A Woman Like You (melodic keyboards and guitars throughout), Work It Out (another deent hard rocker) and Me And Michelle (another rocker with a "trucker" vibe in it). What this album intends to do, it does very well but it's certainly not for AOR purists - more for Southern-AOR fans I'd say.
