|One of the best indies I've heard. Great mix of Melodic Rock and AOR. How this one was overlooked I'll never know. I saw this compared to Powerage recently which is a slap in the face- they kick Powerage's ass IMHO.

|another one we agree on, really great production for an indie!!
||Date: July 23, 2003 at 11:52|
|I really love listening to Track 8: 'Heartless' which is waaaaaay better than the EP by the same name.

|WOW..What a fantastic cd this is..superb...every song on this cd is a killer...i really like track 11 - night by night and track 4 - don't let me go..highly recomend this cd to any 1 that have not heard these guys..truly a fantastic cd... 10/10

|OK, it's 1994, and the music scene all but sucks ass and then a group like Intuition cuts an Awesome album such as 'Turn It On!' and it gets basically ignored because of the masses being stupid fuckin idiots. Bands like this should have been ruling the airwaves. Too bad the industry wasn't on the same page as them then, truly a shame, as the musicianship and songwriting on this effort holds to the greatest standards of a great HR album. Production isn't bad at all either. No fillers here. a 10!
||Date: February 7, 2004 at 4:30|
|You're right. That's a very nice record.If you're into songs like 'Miss mystery' by 'black N Blue' you'll love the song 'Outta Love' (midtempo song almost AOR) . 'In love again' reminds me of Danger Danger's debut. 'Jaqueline' sounds like 'when the children Cry' by white Lion. Overall it's an excellent effort. Highly Recommended. 8.5/10
||Date: March 24, 2004 at 15:42|
|With lyrics like 'we got each other/and that's all we'll need' ripped right out of Jon Bon Jovi's diary, combined with melodies left off Danger Danger's debut, your recommended daily allowance of AOR will be met with one listen to this awesome indie. Decent production, good keys- the fact that TIM, TheRipper, Dreamhunter, Seduced, MButt and myself all agree on this one should tell you everything you need to know about this classy piece.

|I was SO looking forward to hearing this CD for the first time nearly a decade after it's original release. Unfortunatly, I cannot provide the same rave reviews as mentioned above. It's not bad, by any means, just not as exciting as I'd hoped. I suppose I'm still looking for the next BLUE TEARS, which is by far the greatest CD I own that did not grace my ears until 1999! How it escaped me for so long I'll never know, but I'm still looking for another needle in the haystack just like that!

|Who knew anybody cared about this CD but myself and Chris McCoy who fronted the $ for it? It's so cool to see people speaking so highly of it 10 years later! I just want to thank everyone who wrote something here. Rock on! Dean email@example.com
||Date: January 21, 2005 at 1:04|
|d'yeah, the production doesn't do the songs any good but a song like 'hearts of fire' is just awesome..
||Date: January 23, 2005 at 6:57|
|Damn, wish I'd gotten in before Dean arrived because now it appears as though I'm saying it for his sake, but this is actually honestly one of my top 10 fave releases of all time. Not even a HINT of a filler, sensational vocals and perfectly written (and yes,maybe simple-but who cares!) melodic/commercial hard rock songs. 'Southside' and the sensational 'Night by night' are two of my faves, and the ballad 'Don't let me go' is simply mind blowing. HUGELY recommended CD.Any chance of another Dean?
||Date: January 23, 2005 at 18:59|
|Geoff,often we have same likings.One of the best indie also to me.Only 2 little negative points:1.the production(quite quite decent but little confused);2.sometimes you expect from some startin'track an awesome tune/refrain but often it's not at the same level of songwriting ect..I hope you can understand my suckin'English!ahahahaha!BTW these guys are great!9.5/10 surely...
||Date: January 24, 2005 at 3:13|
|Yeah z4roxx, can understand your English just fine . Agree with you in terms of production, but I think they did okay with what they had on offer as the scene was well dead in 1994. I actually listened to this CD last night and again in my car today. Reminds me of the recently released sensational Blind Date CD. Not really similar styles, but both are what some might call 'unoriginal' melodic hard rock, but both are just pulled off flawlessly and filler free. AWESOME bands. Both of them!

|If any disc in my collection was in need of a re-issue (plus a much needed re-master) it would be this one. If you love 'Slippery...' era Bon Jovi and the Danger Danger debut then this is more of the same. I don't like opener 'Southside' that much, but from then on it's keyboard-filled MHR with soaring melodies and catchy choruses all the way. Unfortunately the mix really does spoil the experience, but the song quality is just stunning. The No.2 Indie of all-time IMHO. 9/10.

|Hey guys, thanks for all the comments! As I said before, I didn't think anyone remembered this CD. But it's encouraged me to think abou remastering the CD or doing another CD. There were about 5 songs that didn't get recorded due to a cat dying (no kidding). If there's enough response I'll get everyone together and do something. And make a website for the band and tell a bunch of stories and post video of performances. Let me know what you think.. Until then go to www.yesterdaysheroes.com Take c

|One of my favorite cds in my collection! Everything here kicks butt! The way rock n roll is supposed to be played and sung! Not a filler one! Read the comments above and you will see everyone agrees that this is a GEM! Let's all hope that we get a chance at those 5 tracks that didn't get recorded! As THE RIPPER stated above it was 1994 and the music that was being played SUCKED! These guys were a breath of fresh air in a industry full of S..T at the time! This is a MUST OWN for your collection!!

|Pretty decent. Reminds me of Aldo Nova or Message. Track #11 "Night By Night" is a favorite.
||Date: November 10, 2007 at 15:41|
|Que buen albun temas de Melodic Rock/AOR muy buenos no gran cosa, unos toques algo flojito pero en sii hay tres joyitas en este interesante trabajo Heart Of Fire, In Love Again, Night By Night tres joyitas muy agradables sencillas, melancolicas y con misterio y fuerza en sus toques de guitarras y voz.. todo un buen trabajo...
||Date: November 10, 2007 at 15:42|
|Perdon no en el ultimo tema "Night By Night" aqui la voz es delicada asi como la de un niņo... Saludos amigos amantes de esta musica echa para guerreros...

|Masterpiece album! The song 'Don't Let Me Go' is a BRILLIANT wonderfull ballad!!! 9.5/10
||Date: May 16, 2008 at 13:19|
|Nothing outstanding for me, but the main point is: The singer is very sub-standard in my opinion. Be warned!
||Date: August 19, 2008 at 19:05|
|Psyborg... You're entitled to you're opinion, but it looks like you're out voted here. I think everything on this album is AWESOME! It's an independent release so I'm sure the budget for all the shine that commercially produced albums get, wasn't given here. I think the singer KICKS ASS and does a great job delivering the songs. To anyone else reading this... If you find it on eBay or anywhere else, I highly recommend it. It's like Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Danger Danger and Mr. Big all rolled into one and it won't disappoint! Just read the rest of the reviews here and minus Psyborg's mechanical ear!

|Well Dave and Andrew didn't play a note on this CD or write anything..Maybe Chris or Dean would want to jump in and correct that information.
||Date: December 13, 2009 at 3:40|
|I know for a fact that the songs were co-written by Ronnie Santmyer of Baltimore, MD -- bigbangaudio.com, who also played all guitar tracks on the disc but the solo track on one track, I think call Going Crazy, by Dave Barber, www.barberelectronic.com, who engineered the disc. All bass guitar on all tracks but Night Bye Night & Jacquolin were preformed by Brian Lake of Baltimore, MD. Hope this info clears up things if anyone was wondering or cares.

|Whoa ! This is AWESOME !! I bought the CD on eBay a few years ago, but this new remastered version is way better. Downloading this for my iPod as the quality smokes the other version. Awesome job guys !!!!!!!!!!!
||Date: February 25, 2010 at 20:02|
|This gem has been remastered!!?? Have I been living under a rock? Ok, no need to answer that (HeHe)...I'm gonna crawl out and click the website listed above since this album is sensational and any improvement in sound quality (pretty good to start with) would be, well, (redundantly but factually) sensational......Jeff.

|There is a copy on ebay asking price $80.00??
||Date: February 26, 2010 at 8:57|
|jstoyz, yes from the link, it is Remastered and FREE ! masmusic, don't pay that 80 bucks. Free, Free, Free. I saw that its for sale on iTunes too, but I imagine this link would be the preferred way to get it. (that iTunes version is probably the original version). Looks like the guys pulled a Radiohead and decided to give it away for free. Great idea. I love the tracks. Did you guys see the video? I would have given a limb to see the band live in concert back in the day !
||Date: February 26, 2010 at 11:35|
|No Intention of buying a copy for $80.00 I have a copy on CDR that I love. Going to download a fresh remastered copy! Thanks BIG LOVE for providing the link!
||Date: February 26, 2010 at 20:35|
|I agree metal-head, would have loved to see this band live. Heaps of credit to the band for offering a free download, and thanks to Big Love for sharing the link here
||Date: June 12, 2010 at 17:51|
|Just to let all the people how enjoy this CD here is how it happend-- Ronnie Santmyer(guitar) Dean Watkins (vocals) Chris MaCoy ( key boards) were the song writers. Most music was done by Ronnie, Dean wrote most of the words. Mike Snyder played drums & Brian Lake played bass. If anyone has seen the Utube video of Hearts of Fire, that was the line up for the CD. Can't leave out Dave Barber, engineer & co producer, Eric Turner drums on 1 song & Mike Horseman helped with some writting.

|Amazing album,really enjoyed it! ..catchy songs with plenty of melodies..."Southside" & "Hearts Of Fire" apart from being straight up faves are also highlights,"Goin' Crazy" is such a catchy and nice song,you can listen to it endlessly,"Don't Let Me Go" is a beautiful ballad,"Outta Love" is ala Tobruk,"In Love Again" is AOR at its best,"Heartless" rocks the house but "Turn It On" is even rockier and a highlight too,"Don't Let Me Go" this piano version is as good as the normal one and "Night By Night" ends the album wonderfully..musicianship is the key for success in bands,this band did it but where are they now?...what a shame...98/100...
||Date: August 5, 2010 at 22:30|
|Sorry, band will never be together again. I do personly know most members. Guitarist Ronny & Bass player Brian are still good friends & talk a lot. Ronnie stays in contact with Mike the drummer & Mike Horsman, co-writer & backing vocals on a couple songs. Ronnie & Dave Barber the engineer & co-producer are very close & work together. Chris the key board player & co-writer on a few songs, some of the guys all chat every so once in awhile. Dean the singer/co-writter is out for his self & is the one that wants all of you to buy the CD off Itunes. No one talks to him as far as I know. The line up that this sight shows as the members, I don't think played 1 time on stage. I may be wrong. Just a update to anyone that cares. far as I know.
