|Jeff Scott Soto, sings great in this album, this is why Soto is one of the best singers, his voice is very especial, has a lot of melody and power at the same time. (firstname.lastname@example.org)

|This is one of the true classics in the AOR genre and I'm surprised that not many people seem to know it. Jeff never sounded better than on this MASTERPIECE. Listen to Cheyenne and don't tell me if this isn't one of the very best AOR songs EVER !!!! AN absolute MUST !! Buy it at any cost ! CLASSIC pure AOR !!!!!, not hard rock like their weaker first CD !!!

|I think it's been Jeff's best band. The Cheyenne is one of the best songs that he has ever written. Or didn't he write it?

|This is indeed A TRUE AOR MASTERPIECE and CHEYENNE is a brilliant song. Don't think Jeff did ever a better job than on this record (perhaps on the first Talisman, which is great too !) BUY OR SEARCH IT AT ANY COST ! Their first is more pure hardrock, this is CLASS AOR !

|This is truly magnificent, and the first 3 tracks are as good (and varied) a definition of AOR as you're ever likely to hear. Incidentally, pop bird Anastacia released "Love Is Alive" a few years back as a single, but it works great as a poppy-AOR tune too. "Cheyenne" is killer, and "Nobody Said it was Easy" is a vocal master-class.

|Tim (2), this is indeed super AOR, as you will seldom hear. Brilliant CD ! I can't repeat it enough !
||Date: August 24, 2004 at 20:42|
|I was actually quite dissapointed with this one, especially with the weaker sound and more direct approach towards AOR rather than stellar melodic hard rock like the debut. In comparison to the debut, this is not a good album, but as an AOR album alone it is a good CD. 'Love lies' is a great track, but the rest, dare I say, is a little weak for my likings. Yeah, they really toned it down for this one and I personally much prefer the more passionate debut.

|This a weak record ? ! Geoff, Geoff ! The debut is not half as good man ! It's more hardrock, agreed, but much more simple ! This is OUTSTANDING AOR, and you don't like the mighty CHEYENNE ? ! Well, well . . ., you're definitely NOT an AOR fan and sorry, I have to repeat it, don't know very, very little about the genre. Keep giving comments on hardrock and alternative stuff, mate, but leave the AOR things to others ! Otherwise you make a fool of yourself ! , and I really don't want that !

|'Cheyenne' is a nice song, but I cannot listen to it without thinking, "Hmmm, imagine what this would sound like with the balls, the passion and the drums as they sounded on the debut!" The songs are okay, though not as instantly gripping as the debut, but the weaker sound really lacks the punch of the debut. I'm sorry if you don't agree, but music is as important to me as songs and the guitars, especially drums and everything here just sounds toned down. Good album, just MUCH prefer the debut.

|As a matter of fact this is the "DEBUT" album...but they released this second....probably because of the record label.In my opinion this one is much better than the selftitled second album.There are no weak tracks on this. My favourites are "Cheyenne" and "City Nights" perfect AOR/Melodicrock!
||Date: September 24, 2004 at 7:48|
|yes this is the debut album.as told jss himself on melodicrock .com not a bad album.but not in the same class as s/t.although this is more aor in sound.
||Date: January 21, 2005 at 12:35|
|ACA SI LA COSA CAMBIA BASTANTE, TEMAS MAS AOR Y MENOS ROCKERITOS, MAS CLASE Y UN SOTO REALMENTE INSPIRADO Y COMPROMETIDO EN EL DISCO, SI BIEN ES UN DISCO SIN GRANDES ALUCINACIONES, ES ENTRETENIDO Y AGRADABLE PARA ESCUCHAR, PERO NO ESTA PARA NADA A LA ALTURA DEL ESTUPENDO ETERNAL FAITH DE TAKARA O LOS DE TALISMAN. OJO, ES UN BUEN DISCO, DE ESO NO HAY DUDAS. PD:RAFO, ME SORPRENDE EL GUSTO QUE TENES Y LA FORMA DE CRITICAR, MUY BUENO, COINCIDO MUCHISIMO CON VOS EN CASI TODO, UN GRAN ABRAZO.

|muy buen album de aor Jeff SCOTT SOTO está increíble y los temas son buenísimos.
||Date: June 29, 2006 at 10:38|
|Yes, yes, impresionante disco de AOR con la superlativa voz de Scott Soto. De principio a fin, es una gozada de canciones geniales. Un sobresaliente.
||Date: September 30, 2006 at 12:33|
|Yo sin duda prefiero este WINDOWS OF THE SOUL a cualquiera de TAKARA,super disco mas Aor que Hard,temazos los cuales ya habeis comentado que me ponen el bello como escarpias,sin grander virtuosimos pero con un gusto exquisiiiito.9/10

|Está claro que en su mayoría son temas de AOR y un par de Hardrockeras como "Walking Fire" ó "It´s all Over" muy buen tema. Los teclados en "Cheyenne" me recuerdan al grupo canadiense Regata, "City Nights" otra gran canción de AOR puro. "Living on the Edge" y sobretodo "Love Lies"(el mejor IMO) son tambien de lo mejor del disco. Jeff Scott Soto está en Top Form como se dice y la producción tambien muy buena. La 7,8 y 9 ya estaban en su album debut, no entiendo el porque están acá. Buen disco. 8.

|Another excellent CD by Jeff Scott Soto & Eyes, but with a little more of the (what you guys like to classify as the) "AOR" sound than the more hard rock styled self -titled CD. I honestly find "Cheyenne" to be one of the weaker songs here...and it's still pretty good, but sorry to say it's just a little too "lite" sounding or something. It's missing some "ooomph". It's still a really good song, but it could have been better...as Geoff says above, imagine what it would have sounded like with some "balls". And sure, there's a few songs on "Windows Of The Soul" that are repeated from the self-titled CD, but they still work pretty well within the confines of this different CD. And the new songs (yes, including "Cheyenne") make this CD worth picking up. Plus, this version of "Nobody Said It Was Easy" has a nice extended piano intro, and JSS really sounds great throughout the whole disc.

|top class hard fm.jeff scott soto is one of the best singer ever.hatts off
||Date: January 21, 2010 at 11:19|
|The hard rocking debut pisses in the face of this smoother, slicker--and wimpier--effort like R. Kelly in an underage sex video, but this is pretty good stuff within the AOR genre. The overall vibe is too laid back for my heavier-hitting musical tastes, but the hooks are catchy, the production sounds good, and Jeff Scott Soto delivers an excellent vocal performance as always (the guy could sing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and make it sound awesome). Nothing worth selling your soul to the devil to obtain, but worth grabbing somewhere along the way.
||Date: April 5, 2010 at 5:52|
|What happened to the great band that put out the other two cds.This doesn't even sound like the same band.There is mostly whimpy slow paced no balls average AOR stuff.Unless light love songs are your thing I'd stick to the other 2 and avoid this clunker.
||Date: February 10, 2016 at 5:30|
|More mellow and polished than the debut, but that's not a bad thing. It also has those three magic words "Jeff Scott Soto". This was one of my first "Jeff" albums. Little did i know the can of worms i was opening up trying to keep track of his releases. As for this album, it's near perfection. Epic ballads, soaring vocals and a really cool feel. Possibly one of Jeffs' best. Absolute must have for any JSS fan.
||Date: February 10, 2016 at 13:57|
|totally agree with darkstone.sensational a o r record.one of the best realise with the master jeff scott soto.this album is an orgy of top class a o r songs!!!!!no bonus track on the japan import.
||Date: May 10, 2020 at 16:24|
|Well, there are three glorious aor-melodic rock songs on the disc: Cheyenne (of course), and further on Living on the edge and Love lies. Nice early work from JSS.
