Hi. This one is great. Just like everything that man made. IT's very catchy and moody, i love song called ''walk the line''. Stan has got ''that something'', and he showed that on this release, also check his other releases and metropolis album. Highly recommeded.

From: freddy de keyze Date: May 19, 2003 at 20:40
Fantastic AOR from our man, Stan ! AOR, typical from the eighties and that means : quality ! Search and buy !

From: MelodicMan Date: May 20, 2003 at 10:30
Perfect AOR by this Canadian artist. Wellknown songwriter also. A must have !

From: AOR freaky Date: December 1, 2003 at 12:02
Boy, this is good, great ! Perfect AOR indeed and a pleasure to listen to ! No, Stan is a too great artist to be ignored ! Great stuff !

From: ROB GARCIA Date: January 21, 2004 at 18:49
this is aor by numbers!from one of my heroes.he has only released 3 solo albums so far and they are absolute musts for every aor fan.i dont think i could do any comparisons as hes got quite a unique style.if you enjoy stans albums i would recommend you to check the metropolis album cause thats one hell of an album too.happy listening!.

The sound is somewhere between the commericalism of Bryan Adams and the punchiness of Stan Bush for example. In fact, Meissner's choruses are one of his best attributes. They are so good. Take a listen to 'Heart Of Ice', 'I Want Everything' and the delicious 'I'll Wait For You', one of my all time favorite Meissner songs. 'Coming Out Of Nowhere' is a sensational slice of AOR, as is 'Lifeline', while 'Counting On Love' is another hard rocker which has passages similar to fellow Canadians Sheriff.

cualquiera de los tres cds de stan son buenisimos un aor muy elegante pero sobre todo en este cd esta para mi una de las mejores canciones que hay en el aor que es i'll wait for you es simplemente genial un 10 para el señor stan

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: October 26, 2004 at 23:29

From: Lovedrive Date: June 10, 2005 at 14:11
Muy bueno, de esos discos que hay que escuchar varias veces para pillar los detalles. Aquí hay temazos como I'll be wait for you o Walk the line.

From: Axe-Machine Date: November 15, 2005 at 15:33
Perhaps not as instantly likeable as Dangerous Games, but in retrospect is the better album, which should have made him a household name, rather than one of the many names of former AOR greats appearing in Celine Dion's liner notes. Very enjoyable in the same super smooth vibe as Dangerous Games, although this one is slightly more upbeat. Absolutely Essential for westcoast fans and music ala Michael Thompson Band. Reccomended. 8.5/10.

From: lalorock Date: May 12, 2007 at 13:42
AOR de muchos kilates, temas con unos arreglos bien cuidados donde los teclados, guitarras y voces de Stan Meissner son una clara alusión a la perfección de la música rock en general, a quien no le gustaría temazos como Heart of ice,Wild and blue,I can´t break away...,Walk the line(mi favorita),estaría loco o sordo, lástima que solo saco tres albumes, queremos más discos Mr Stan Meissner por el bien de la música...9.5/10.

From: Carlos A. Date: July 14, 2007 at 12:07
Un album que te llenara de buenos sentimientos AOR!!!,tan bueno como el 1º con la diferencia que este se nota algo mas solido y encima guitarras mas resolutivas, aparte Meissner incluyo acertadamente saxo en un tema y no la cag® como a veces suele pasarle al monton,algo que estuvo de moda en esa decada pero al menos para mi sin fortuna (y que levante la mano aquel que le guste ver y oir a un saxofinista de rock melodico ehh? no hay modo) un buen Disco que te dejara casi satisfecho 9.5/10

From: juan carlos Date: August 3, 2007 at 0:40
Que duda cabe, Corcuerdo plenamente con Lalorock y Carlos. El voceras de Toad The Wet Sprocket de seguro debe haber escuchado a Stan Meissner, en todo caso, su voz es muy parecida y mas en temas tan deprimentes pero en el buen sentido de la palabra como "I'll Wait For You" "Walk The Line" o en "I Can't Break Away From You" y en "Endless Ride" me recordó en algo a esa hermosa "Woman In Chains" de Tears For Fears. Realmente un Súper-Discazo. Como dijo Lalorock "Perfección", eso resume todo. 9.5/10

A Top Notch album in here!..for me his best effort so far.."I Want Everything" is a good start,inmediately caught my attention,"Heart Of Ice" is a smooth and catchy song,"Wild And Blue" is brilliant AOR,"I Can't Break Away From You" has a lovely chorus,"I'll Wait For You" is another catchy track,"Coming Out Of Nowhere" is a highlight and one of my faves along with "Walk The Line" with a nice chorus,"Counting On Love" AOR song and the beautiful ballad "Hold Me"..a must have album!.92/100

From: Dani Darko Date: June 4, 2010 at 4:43
Excelent, Excelent album!! You have just to love those Canadians! They sure know how to rock! Except for Rycheage, nobody has mentioned the anthem "Lifeline", IMHO one of the best melodic songs ever! Un disco excelente, como siempre los canadienses saben como hacer rock melódico de calidad. Casi nadie ha comentado "Lifeline", que es un pedazo de tema, para mí todo un himno! Para acabar, saludos a Rafo Phoenix, mi paisano Robert,Juan Carlos y a los que hacéis comentarios tan acertados y que ayudan un monton!Gracias! AOR, MELODIC ROCK FOREVER!!! 8/10

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 4, 2010 at 21:03
Hi Dani Darko of course mate "Lifeline" is a super song and this album a total classic! Saludos Dani y suerte España!

From: Kralli Date: October 17, 2011 at 6:39
Wow, extremely overrated. If you like it laidback and on the edge to boring, non variated singing etc then you will love this. Heart Of Ice is kind of catchy but the most of the rest of the songs are lame and boring.
