Very strong release. Superb vocals from Mervyn Spence (who went on to form the excellent Face Face) and a set of excellent material, some of which appeared on the debut 'Phenomena' cd. Well worth tracking down if the lighter side of AOR is your Thaannng!!.

Mervyn Spence has an incredible voice perfect for this style of AOR.Great album ,although hard to find.

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: May 7, 2005 at 4:35
No se muy bien el sentido o motivo por el que Mervyn sacó este disco pues mas de la mitad de los temas los podemos encontrar en los diferentes discos editados por Phenomena.Hombre si eres de los que no han escuchado jamás a Phenomena y te gusta el AOR pues este disco te sabrá a gloria pues vas a descubrir temas tremendos,si por el contrario ya los habias escuchado pues solo queda dar el veredicto de q versiones salen vencedoras,si estas de O'Ryan o las pomposas versiones de Phenomena.GRAN AOR.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: March 7, 2006 at 12:04
Naa!!! Phenomena son Phenomena ellos son la Leyenda, sobre este album es muy bueno claro si son temas de Phenomena la mayoria, pero hombre Glenn Hughes es Incomparable, de sus temas personales aca hay algunos buenos personalmente no debio sacar los de Phenomena es que ellos no son COMPARADOS NADIE TENDRA EL AURA Y LA MISTICA QUE TIENEN EN CADA UNO DE SUS TEMAS POR FAVOR!!! ABSTENGANSE LAS BANDAS QUE QUIERAN SACAR VERSIONES DE ELLOS QUEDARAN EN RIDICULO, PHENOMENA SON FENOMENOS SIN PALABRAS!!!

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: March 7, 2006 at 12:10
JAJA escuchando NO RETREAT NO SURRENDER las comparaciones son obvias los 80 son los 80 una comparacion BRUTAL, EL AURA LA MISTICA EL SONIDO LA SALA DE GRABACION ES DECIR TODO LO HECHO EN LOS 80 SON DE OTRA GALAXIA, STILL THE NIGHT ni que decir, bueno despues de todo eso este es un muy buen album 8/10.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: March 7, 2006 at 12:16
LAS CASACAS(CHICAS ALA CINTURA) LOS JEANS APRETADOS, LAS ZAPATILLAS(LIVIANAS)(QUE AHORA AN VUELTO NUEVAMENTE), EL PEINADO, LAS RADIOS ESCUCHANDO EN LAS ESQUINAS FULL ROCK, LAS PELICULAS, PUTAMADRE LOS 80'S SON ICOMPARABLESS!!! DIOS MIO COMO QUISIERA TENER UNA MAQUINA DEL TIEMPO Y NO REGRESAR JAMAS DE LA DECADA QUE DEBIO QUEDAR SUSPENDIDA EN EL TIEMPO. UNAS LAGRIMAS CAEN DE MI ROSTRO...

Good AOR album. The singer has a very good voice, and the songs are pretty catchy.

From: Clayton77 Date: January 9, 2007 at 20:02
GREAT AOR album, a real masterpiece of the voice MERVYN SPENCE. He sounds like the re-incarnation of DAVID BYRON (Uriah Heep) and you`ve got to check the FACE FACE and PURPLE CROSS CD`s, too. (10/10)

From: BDrums1971 Date: June 20, 2010 at 13:32
Really great singer. Did you know that Still The Night is a cover of John Norum's song off of his solo album (forget which album right now). Both are great songs!

From: barker Date: June 20, 2010 at 17:10
Mega AOR indeed but only available as a Japanese import - worth every penny though.Also check out the first Face Face album "Childhood Dreams".

From: rick kerch vzla Date: March 14, 2012 at 21:56
Solid album by O'Ryan!!!...better than his debut one IMO..."Shape It Up" & "Stop" are the "rock tracks" of the album but the rest is a very nice blend of AOR songs such as "No Retreat,No Surrender","Still The Night","Believe" & "Something Strong"(catchy) that surely will draw a smile in your face...recommended...90/100
