|Joey got his hair cut but the scissors must have slipped and cut more than his locks. Nipped his balls a bit and, as a result, a softer release to be filed at your record store under "hard(ly) rock". Not that this is necessarily bad. In fact, once you get past the shock of the cold water, swimming around in the soulful MOR muck is almost enjoyable. Best tracks: "Under the Influence" and "A Place to Call Home". Worst tracks: the next album, called "Azalea Place". Poooooo.

|im sure all of us here at heavy harmonies want to see europe back on the road so bad that it hurts.i wonder when that might happen!.in the meantime what you get here is a nice selection of softer tunes with a blues touch for good measure.i dont know if koogles agrees with me in that this album musically reminds me very much to the first solo album by mike tramp.vocally joey does a good performance but then again i rather see the man delivering full power with europe!!!.

|Soft rock but strong material and a fine songwriting in my humble opinion. Songs developed in a really delicious manner and style (and also a refined taste for some different instruments, not used as a pretext like many others do). Undoubtedly a gifted musician/vocalist/songwriter (but we already knew it).

|Top class songwriting, excellent production and talented session musicians. Joey's voice is at his best, often more subtle and emotional than he used to sing with Europe. Superb.

|Without a doubt his best solo release. There is not one bit of Europe in it, but for the ones who love his voice it is wonderful. Except of 'Right to respect' (although there is John Norum on guitar), all the tracks are just great, especially 'Under the influence', 'A place to call home' and 'For my county'.

|This is the ultimate prove that Chris and I have also our differences. This is a bad, poor singer/songwriter record. Very, very boring ! AOR forever, indeed, but not this kind of music (won't call it AOR !)! But, tastes differ !!!

|You have the wrong Chris there 'Freaky'!!! In my opinion though this is a very average release.

|Love it. If you hate Belly To Belly because you expected traditional Warrant and weren't open to something different, forget about this one. I liken it to the Eagles style of muse, but every song is full of hooks and melody. Can't rock hard all teh time. this is the perfect mellow out CD

|I Would Not Call It AOR But It's With No Doubt A VERY BIG MUST For Every Fan Of Catchy Melodies & Beautiful Hooklines. The Best Effort Of Joey's 3 Personal Jobs.

|I like Joey's voice and he'sa good lyricist, but unfortunately these songs do nothing for me. I reall ylike 'How come you're not dead yet', but the rest, as a few have said, is just boring. One great song though.

|Una voz increible q se amolda y hace un disco personal y diferente.“A place to call home”,primer single posee el sonido que representa el resto del album, una sensacional mezcla de guitarras acústicas y eléctricas con las buenas melodías de Joey. “Under the influence” es una balada muy emocionante,“Harder to leave a friend than a lover”, “Lord of manor” o “How come you´re not dead yet” mantienen el nível de un disco de calidad de esencia pop y sentimiento Aor.

|Disco Muy Intimista de la Voz de Europe pero que a mi me agrada muchísimo. Cierto que no es AOR menos HardRock pero es de muy buen disfrutar máxime si estan en plan de relajación. Muy elegante y con un sentimiento acústicón pero que me agrad muchísimo. Leí en una entrevista que le hizo la Metal Hammer que siempre quizo hacer un disco como éste pero que obviamente núnca lo iba a realizar en Europe. 8.8/10

|To describe this album is simple...is like drinkin' a just made early morning coffee..splendid!!!.Joey disconnected completely the sound of Europe to record a mellow,smoth,personal and intimate album where(shall i say this?)all his influences flourished (perhaps Bruce Springteen,Tom Petty,John Cougar,Bob Dylan and so on..).The songs are truly amazing either in composition and lirycs...2 of them caught my attention "Elsewhere"(moody)and "My Country"(very beautiful indeed).As i said,do not expect edgy guitars and high tone voice,this is relaxing...to enjoy with a coffee or something else...95/100
