Cómo es posible que no haya comentarios de este pedazo de disco? Es tan bueno o mejor que el primero. La canción REAL es la mejor que nunca ha compuesto Michael Sweet.

From: Raul Date: September 27, 2004 at 15:02
Definitivamente, un estilo que no es ni por un momento el representativo de Stryper , pero que es delirantemente exquisito,la cancio´n The River me llego al alma, excelente trabajo y que Dios le de muchos discos mas a este gran musico y compositor.

This is a good follow-up to a great album. "Real", "Color Blind" and the remake of "Always There For You" are the highlights. Good but not great. The debut is great and the true must-own.

Liked 2 songs, not alot to say about this cd. It's ok I wouldn't pay alot for it if I were you.

Que quereis que os diga, a mi me gustan tanto este disco como el primero aunque no sea el tipo de música que hacía Stryper. El 1º buscando más la comercialidad, pero este se nota mucho más maduro y con un estilo más definido. Buenos discos los dos aunque sin salirse. Ah y lo sigue bordando en las baladas tal y como nos tenía acostumbrados con Stryper.

This is a REALly good album, like everything Mr Sweet makes. Almost all songs are great and there is one of the best guitar players acting in this CD, who is the fantastic Mike Slamer. And of course, the so necessary message for this mad times we're living: Jesus is our only Salvation.

In agreement with the "few" good comments above...this is awesome by all means!!!..."Second Chance","The River","Always There For You"(wonderful acoustic version),"Real","Baby Doll" & "Why" are simply delightful ....Michael Sweet is a fantastic singer and better musician!!!...90/100...enjoy!!!

Is it just me or anyone else notice the similarities between the chorus on 'The River' & Meat Loaf's 'Couldn't Have Said It Better"? I reckon Meat Loaf might owe him some royalties... he he
