|Jonathan Cain is a gifted songwriter but a backing vocalist at best, so this comes off sounding like demos, waiting for Steve Perry or John Waite to turn into gold. Unfortunately, there's no Perry or Waite to sing them, so they get a second hand treatment from Cain whose vocal style is completely lacking in character. Effectively, this is mushy AC pablum that, while coming across as honest and from-the-heart, wouldn't even cut it as Billy Joel B-sides.

|This IS a VERY good album trust me...this shows mr.cain can do his own thing and play those keys like only he does, my favourites are the title track 'back to the innocence' which has so much depth to it and the last track 'little river' with is stunning piano tinkling a beautiful song simply awesome, all the tracks are good you just need to play it a few times and they grow on you. Ok journey this album is not but it shows that he can make good albums on his own so why not check him out?

|This is much better than I could have expected. Cain's vocals are ok, but just listen to the emotion he puts into them... "When the Spirit Comes" is huge, but in the hands of someone like Jeff Scott Soto would've been incredible. "Little River" and "My Old Man" are also of the highest quality. Some great musicianship and heartfelt songs. 8.5/10.

|I got this one fairly inexpensive and was quite pleased. "My Old Man" and "Little River" are great songs. Sure it doesn't rock like Journet, The Babys, or Bad English, but its good lite stuff. As noted, there is a diffrent version. My version has some other songs, so there may be some good ones I'm missing here. His vocals may lack character, but don't lack passion.
