Superb one off release, reminding me of the great Boulevard and also Go West in places. Matthew Gerard is also connected to Von Groove and Greg Critchley to Kim Mitchel on his 'Aural Fixations' release. Lovers of great Canadian AOR won't go wrong with this one, especially with the first half of the disc. Highly recommended

From: Date: October 6, 2003 at 15:30
Excellent release. Fans of Boulevard and Level 42, this CD is a must have! Best!

From: koogles Date: October 9, 2003 at 14:01
LEVEL 42? What the f**k? This doesn't sound anything like Level 42. The lead singer is a total Eddie Money clone. Not a bad CD, definitely good in the first half, with 'Wherever You Run' and 'This is Love' leading the way.

From: Rycheage Date: March 30, 2004 at 1:04
Their music is punchy and is predominantly bright all the way through. It's aimed squarely at the pop/middle of the road audience, no surprises, and a pleasant workout all round. It has a British feel to it, a la Level 42 and Go West, no doubt due to the rhythm section of Gerrard and Critchley. The songs are a hybrid of pure pop oriented affairs with brass keyboard stabs, of which there are some harder rockin' numbers.

I like this album, and like Koogles said, it's not like Lever 42.It's something between Go west and Joe Pasqualle.First falf is great, especially first two tracks.Tracks in the middle of this disc are mediocre, but later 8 and 9 are my fav. ones too.

From: Don Palmer Date: August 25, 2004 at 17:18
The lead singer is Chris Smith & he released a solo album a few years back (mid-nineties) called 'Room inside my heart' which is a kinda cross between Zappacosta & Marc Jordan.

From: Geoff Date: August 25, 2004 at 20:47
I was very excited when I heard the first track - killer melodic rock, but after that it it not so spectacular. Not a bad CD by any means but the start promised a lot more than the rest delivered.

From: ROBERT Date: April 23, 2005 at 11:13
Un Buen disco se marcaron en 'mi' aņo 89'!! Matter of time, muy buen tema... Regatta (como mi primer Taxi q tuve) 6'5 d 10!!

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: October 12, 2005 at 21:58
Good AOR/Melodic Rock album, como siempre hasta ahora los musicos Canadienses no defraudan siempre entregando buenas obras y Regatta es otro buen exponente de esas tierras llenas de Magia, que seria la vida de los buenos Rockeros sin un pais como Canada, en cortes This Is Love(Killer song, my fav), I Will Be There, Wherever You Run, Matter of Time los cortes que particularmente mas me gustan, el resto tambien se encuentran en buen camino, otro disco recomendado para amantes del AOR

From: K.K. Date: November 12, 2005 at 14:17
amazing cd, yeeeeeah 10/10

From: TIM (2) Date: December 2, 2005 at 5:00
What an opening duo we have here. Two AOR MONSTER tunes sounding not far from Boulevard (as Jez mentions). The rest has much more of a pop flavour to it, & it's a very inconsistent CD, but there are further highlights towards the end. However, this really is worth picking up for lovers of pure 80's AOR for those first 2 awesome tunes. I will probably never play the entire CD from start to finish, but who cares with 2 tunes as good as this. 7/10 (overall).

From: swriter Date: July 16, 2007 at 18:38
good Canadian aor, nothing fantastic, good for what it is, strong songs throughout, a bit bland but definately aor, enjoyable

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: May 7, 2008 at 20:24
Great AOR album. The style of this band is like a mix of Eddie Money, BLVD, Bryan Adams and Rick Springfield. In general terms, it is a very good album and my favorite track is "Wherever You Run". Very Recommended

From: qwest Date: November 17, 2009 at 12:39
Geoff is right 1. is killing after its an average stuff

From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 19, 2010 at 0:56
Pretty good album ala Mr Mister,Haywire(being poppier) and Boy Meets Girl kinda stuff..."Wherever You Run" a fave from the start,"This Is Love" a hit single and another fave also highlight & with a very nice vid that u can watch at youtube's,"Give Me a Sign" is a cool one,"Matter Of Time" is nice,"Heartbreaker" has a wonderful beat,"Writing On The Wall" is a very good number and "Devil's In Disguise" is an excellent song...really worth the try if u are into this kind of AOR with pop influences..88/100..

From: juan carlos Date: June 19, 2010 at 1:06
Hey! deletted my old comments here well, "Wherever You Run" and "This is Love" are awesome AOR songs! i love these tracks and are my favorite songs of course. Eddie money clone? hahahaa.. Smith`s voice reminds me a lot of Eddie Money. There are some fillers and could be inconsistent but it`s a quite good popAOR album.
