I really liked this release, worth the cd's I traded for it.

From: koogles Date: May 13, 2003 at 18:56
Big Guns goes for the Big Bucks- unfortunately, Ian Taylor's vocals on this CD don't quite match the talents of his bandmates. Here, the usual velvety synth throw-pillows are tossed over a bed of shopworn AOR chord progressions. Similar to Artica, 1st Avenue, etc. With a better vocalist and a bit more in the production dept., this could have something actually worth flappin your bills at.

Big Guns.....i replaced Neil Brocklebank in Big Guns as guitarist in 1994. We did actually record another album (better??) which was never released, if anyone wants to hear it let me know! It did have much better production. The first album only cost about 3000 to make so it was on a budget!! phil@onejovi.com

Well Ian is my big bro and i loved it

Excellent melodicrock album, with good harmony vocals, nice keyboards and overall well played. Sounds like a mix of early Danger Danger(Let's Get Crazy,Living It Up),Alliance(Picking Up The Pieces)and Bangalore Choir...recommended!

From: Geoff Date: March 10, 2005 at 6:30
Wow, the potential this band showed!!! 'Livin' it up' could sincerely not be a better opener, and is melodic hard rock at the top of it's game - sensational! What follows is not bad, but just good hard rock... until we get to 'Lets get crazy'. Again, melodic hard rock perfection, as is the next track, 'City lights'. These three tracks will blow your mind, the rest is okay. I love this album for those 3 songs though.

From: David Date: March 10, 2005 at 17:03
Geoff, wait to you hear their second album coming soon on Suncity Records!! The closest thing to Danger Danger's 1st album I have ever heard!! Geoff, what is your e-mail and I will tell you a bit more??

From: Geoff Date: March 10, 2005 at 17:19
Hey David - that's the second release you've mentioned on Suncity Records that I cannot wait to hear! My email address is gwols@cometals.com.au and I would love to hear all you have to offer on this... and the other one you told me about a few days ago. Which one was that again? FYI, my other email address outside business hours is ihaveteeth@hotmail.com

From: Niglin Date: April 21, 2005 at 17:42
The vocals are like Kal Swans from 'Lion' like it. I would say they are niether the best or worst of this genre, but in all honestly they are above the average for this style of music.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 20, 2010 at 1:05
I'm listening again their albums and really they have a Great Style of MHR/AOR, this album is huge in the vein of... yes Danger Danger "Living It Up, Love Gets in the Way, Lets Get Crazy, City Lights, Slipping Away..." Great style, super recommended! 95/100.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 2, 2010 at 21:58
