Glad to hear from you guys. I've got plenty of other Italian bands I'd like to trade or buy from you if you have the time. rio1harris@aol.com

From: AGNAR Date: April 28, 2004 at 10:38
hello! Ciao! you can find the Florence 99 LP on this catalogue: http://digilander.iol.it/solovinile ----> then go to the Italian Music section, there's some gems such as Witch Hunters, Strana Officina etc. Cheers!

From: David Date: May 23, 2004 at 23:15
TIM, who do these dudes sound like?? I've only seen this on ebay the once and it went for a shit load!!!

From: walter Date: July 8, 2004 at 7:39
hi David, the sound is a mix between early Van Halen, Red Dawn, Aerosmith and Led Zeppelin...if you like these bands this is for you. Are there no keyboards like Skandinavian bands, but pure melodic hard rock ala early House Of Lords. Byez, W.

From: Draco Date: October 16, 2004 at 16:31
Beautiful "Stones and Stars (and guitar), my all time fav track.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 4, 2006 at 12:10
Good-Decent Pop Rock/AOR/melodic Rock, no es la gran cosa, !!!que pasa aca me dan ganas de meterle una patada en el cerebro a todos los de arriba que ni siquiera an mencionado a Gloria semejante version de la tremenda y hermosa Laura Branigan, por ahi la 1,4,7 que estan en algo, solo digo si te consigues Gloria olvidate del resto ya que sin ese corte no es nada este album 7/10 solo por gloria se lo merece, ojala que en mi pais la gente piense bien antes de votar por un corrupto.

From: POTENTE Date: June 7, 2006 at 17:10
Hey Rafo parece que la gente de tu pais esta loca no? En verdad Gloria es una de los mejores cortes de este disco que para mi fue toda una revelacion,es cierto tienen algo de VH pero creo que lograron un estilo muy particular, suenan "distintos" y solo el tema Stones And Stars (And Guitar)ya justifica tener este disco. Recomendado. 8/10

From: walter Date: June 23, 2006 at 14:54
Hola! "Gloria" is the english cover of the italian mega hit single. The song "Gloria" sold tons of millions of copies! This is one the finest italian melodic rock release, ok, i'm italian, but please list better the arrangements, the melodies and the guitar's work...there are a lot of the better major italian musicians involved in this project. This was not a poor, low-budget release. "Bloody Mission" and "What about" are near the perfect.

Ciao Walter, tu sei per caso l'amico di Ilian? Il "bulgaro trova tutto" mi ha parlato di te, dei tuoi scambi e delle tue imprese collezionistiche!

From: RonnieJamesDaddo Date: March 19, 2007 at 7:50
Quanto ai FLORENCE 99 (miei concittadini, li ho su LP), che dire? Ci sono almeno un paio di canzoni clamorose! Una su tutte, "BLOODY MISSION", un fast-AOR-anthem che non sfigurerebbe affatto su un disco scandinavo del 1989!

From: Swazi Date: May 8, 2007 at 9:44
Very impressive ! This is a real gem and definitely deserves to be reissued. Unfortunately I only have a CDR, but this is still better than nothing. My faves are "Gimme Money", "Gloria" and "What about".

From: ashen_light Date: July 8, 2008 at 10:06
One of the best AOR CDs I have heard in years!! Fans of European school of AOR( NOT SCANDINAVIAN) will have their ears in blossom after they listen to this magnificient gem: top-notch production, great songwriting; ultra catchy melodies with multi-layered background choruses, crisp-clean guitar riffs and the list goes on and on and on....This CD has everything an AOR release should have! You might find some songs musically repetative at times especially ( Gloria, Bloody Mission)-but give it a chance and it will REALLY grow on you. the CD will appeal to fans of Amaze Me, Vice, Sweet Lips, Black Rose, Monro, Fisk, etc....Absolutely a MUST!

From: rbrigade Date: August 21, 2008 at 21:10
Some comments over here are plain rubbish...House of Lords???? Led Zeppelin???? No keyboards?????? Oh please...are we really listening to the same album???? This is more like poppy AOR full of keys with some atmosphairic songs. Quite good vocals (for an Italian I mean, there's still some accent). Absolutely not hard rock, most songs almost have no rhythm guitars...no riffs (Gotta lotta and the awful Monkey Lady are the exception to that rule). How could that thin production be top notch???? Almost no album from a country like Italy with little AOR tradition and market could get a top notch production these years...I really can't understand why some people must be so missleading...The two openers are some of the worst stuff I ever heard. The songs improve a little from that point, just to the average level. What about seems like the best song to me, quite decent I must say (I especially like the KEYBOARD RIFF!!!) Anyway...Avoid by any means!!!!

Wow, Charlie! That is not a very welcoming remarks to potential trade friends. But unfortunately, we don't do our trading transactions here. We do it at the Message Board. Why don't you be a member try your arrogance there?

From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 15, 2011 at 14:40
Decent italian AOR band...nice songs indeed but probably it lacks of a real "punch"...that's my appreciation about it...voice pretty good and that makes the songs appealing...best ones 4 me are "Rock'N'Roll(I Feel So)","Give Me Money"(catchy),"Gloria"(a very good cover of the fantastic Laura Branigan),"Gotta Lotta Love"(rocks),"Don't You Tease Me,Girl" & "What About"...85/100
