Thanks to Whiplash and Delbert for the help on this one. Is this one worth getting?

From: robert Date: January 19, 2004 at 21:55
buen disco y dificil d conseguir... suavessito ... 7 d 10!!

From: D.C. Date: January 29, 2004 at 6:45
is this album worth anything on vinyl?(MINT)

From: aorquest Date: February 9, 2004 at 22:16
VERY GOOD CD. THESE ARE THE BEST FEMALE VOCALS I HEARD ON A CD IN A LONG TIME. I LIKE ANYTHING PAUL SABU TOUCHES.....HIS GUITAR WORK IS JUST AWESOME. THE LEAD SINGER SOUNDS A BIT LIKE CHER. HARD AS HELL TO FIND ON CD...BUT NOT TOO TERRIBLY BAD TO FIND ON VINYL.

From: JESSICA96FISH Date: March 2, 2004 at 17:15
ihave this cd.and paid a mint for it.not a bad cd.but you could get laos and witness for the price of this cd.a better deal i think.

From: Rycheage Date: April 6, 2004 at 22:34
It's a fairly heavy affair, with raucous vocals very much to the fore. Some genuine classics on show here, from the opening trio of 'I Can't Shake You', 'We Don't Remember Why' and 'Dance The Night Away' to the blistering melodic fury of 'Let It Rock' and 'Heart To Heart'. Some of the slower moments are great too, including 'Wanderlust' and 'A Cry Away', and there's a cover of Atlanta Rhythm Section's 'Spooky'.

From: TIM (2) Date: May 12, 2004 at 9:16
Wow, I can't believe this is worth so much money! Am very tempted to sell at some stage if the price keeps going up! Is a very good CD, and the vocals and guitars are stunning, but Sabu kept most of the good stuff for himself. There's certainly nothing on here to rival "Always" or "Save A Place In My Heart" from the otherwise patchy first Only Child album. All the better tracks are early on though, and the second half of the CD is no better than average.

From: meradona Date: June 19, 2004 at 5:23
¿Como puedo conseguirlo? llevo bastante tiempo intentado encontrarlo, y aun lo tengo en cinta del año de la pera, si alguien lo tiene y me lo quiere pasar por favor avisar, tambien busco el primero de Nuclear Valdez "I am I" que en esta web no viene nada de ellos y creo que son un gran grupo. gracias

From: Joel_Ellis Date: October 21, 2004 at 6:20
Jessica, great comment. I think you are spot on. Exactly what I think. And Laos probably the the best female fronted melodic hardrock band out there.

From: Sergio Date: November 19, 2004 at 23:10
La música es realmente buena, y la mina me recuerda LEE AARON.

From: rick kerch Date: February 6, 2005 at 7:21
I only have a couple of songs from this album which are great,i supposed that the rest of the album is amazing.

From: zld Date: February 22, 2005 at 13:23
This one is SUPERB. It is Paul Sabu all over place. A classic release and a must have for every serious cd collector.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: March 1, 2005 at 23:34
Good AOR album a classic, with the hand of Paul Sabu, Otro buen album de AOR todo un clasico por parte de una mujer entrando en las grandes como Romeo's Daughter, Annica, Heart o Witness por nombrar a las mas grandes, con similar timbre de voz que Cher, en temas We Don't Remember Why, Dance The Night Away, Cool Wind, Heart To Heart, From Now On mis favoritos, un album completo, esta joya no puede faltar en tu coleccion, a Classic AOR album.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: March 1, 2005 at 23:35
Gracias a Meradona y los demas amigos por la recomendacion.

From: Geoff Date: March 21, 2005 at 18:43
If only Sabu could use some songs as good as these for his own CDs! 'We don't remember why' is a gem, 'Dance the night away' is very good, as is the last track. Once again, like all Sabu stuff, it's not great IMO and awfully patchy, but this is very good in places. I don't like the vocals at all and would rather have seen these songs used by Sabu himself, but there are some gems here in the style of 'Always' and 'Save a place in my heart'. Musically, very similar to Only Child debut sound.

From: Lennie Date: April 18, 2005 at 17:03
I dont believe that anyone would pay in excess of $90 for this disc. There are some good moments, but its just not consistent enough. I have an original but only the disc...lobbed box/covers etc years ago. Never really rated it enough I suppose.

From: brad Date: April 26, 2005 at 9:10
Where in the heck do people think these cds have to be so dang high priced. I don't care how good a cd is, it's not worth $90.00 or more just to have it. I am getting this cd very soon, I heard a sample and Fell in love right away. Very good singer all around.

Just to update - The re-issue is finally out, so should be easy to track down now & at a fraction of the cost!! Have always liked this album alot, but it always struck me as an Only Child leftovers album and was certainly not as good as the brilliant OC debut. There is enough quality on show here though to satisfy most & Ms. Anastasia is pretty awesome throughout. TIM (2)is quite correct in that the best of the material is in the first half, although in general it all gets the thumbs up.

From: jim80s Date: February 16, 2007 at 19:23
I have to tell you that with this album i made a new record! Before the fourth track was over i had already bought it from ebay and i have to admit that i am inexcusable because i took too long to order it! Anyway this album has the signature of Paul Sabu all over it. Do i have to say anything else?

From: SangreAzulForever Date: February 21, 2007 at 18:34
Well, after a listen this gave me the impression as it is a little bit repetitive IMHO. The singer has strong vocals, but I would prefer Vixen or Chrissy Steele. The song "dance the night away" is very catchy, but as I said, on the whole, not my cup of tea. 6/10 (for the singer) and 8/10 (for the music).

From: juan carlos Date: February 24, 2007 at 22:14
Que pasa muchachos, nadie menciona a "Wanderlust" (PURO AOR)? si este es mi tema favorito del disco, y me hablas de mal gusto!!?? si nisiquiera lo mencionas, solo Rycheage lo nombra.. Me agrada la voz de Alexa(de las mejores eh!), buenísimos temas y solos, producción,teclados de gran factura. "A Cry Away" "Cold Wind" en una onda tranquila y con unos teclados muy precisos como para darle un aire atmosférico a estos temas y coros obviamente. La 2,3,8,9 y 10 buenísimos temas tambien. 8.8/10

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: February 24, 2007 at 23:33
Aca es lo mismo no hay un tema que Sobresalga del resto asi que cada uno tiene sus favoritos.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: February 24, 2007 at 23:37
Pero si hubieran puesto en la nueva reedicion de este album esa cancion que busco hace siglos de Alexa seria otra historia alli diria con categoria este es el mejor corte del album y porque no el mejor corte AOR por una mujer pero eso sera ya casi imposible y ese Soundtrack ya ni existe.

From: juan carlos Date: February 25, 2007 at 0:02
Cual el Soundtrack "To Die For" de la peli "RoadHouse" con patrick Swayze? mmm.. si inconseguible creo, pero hay tener al menos el video de esa peli. Bueno a lo que iba, para mí "WANDERLUST" sobresale del resto pues tiene un aire de midtempo AOR que me encanta, y si para tí es otro tema grande al igual que el resto pues esta muy bien, pero no para poner palabrotas aberrantes en algo que no te gusta ps, así tampoco.. CADA UNO TIENE SUS FAVORITOS Y PUNTO Y ESO SE RESPETA. Saludos.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: February 25, 2007 at 0:25
Nop Roadhouse con Swayze lo tengo. "To Die For" es el OST con Alexa jaja veo que ya te informaron hace tiempo se lo comente a un compatriota sobre este Soundtrack ??? no fuistes tu??? Ahora sobre las canciones hay albums que son parejos y no hay canciones que sean la JOYA del disco este album de Alexa es un caso buenos temas pero no hay una cancion que sobresalga, eso no pasa por ejemplo con albums como el primero de Newman, Cliff Magness o Michael O'brien o si??? hay cosas que son inevitables.

From: z4roxx Date: July 17, 2007 at 13:39
What a great cd,didn't know this Alexa and I must admit she was an immense talent,fantastic and powerful voice,among my fave female indeed."Wanderlust"goes directly among the best mega-hits of 80's with Robin Beck,Bonny Tyler or other big names in genre...Awesome pompous melodick hard rock/aor and I think the best Paul Sabu work I did hear...Almost perfect,10/10!P.S.Ahaha 7.40???Samey idiots.....

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: November 13, 2007 at 20:14
Hace unos meses ya puedo disfrutar del mejor corte hecho por una Femina de tantisimos albums de feminas en todos los estilos que tengo y miles de grandes canciones sin duda alguna este corte marco mi vida desde que vi esa peli hace tantos años aun conservado en VHS donde sale esta JOYA del AOR buf! MAGIA en estado puro y tampoco se puede dejar de lado los otros temazos que estan en ese OST realmente son cosas de la dimension desconocida del Rock hecha solo para los Invencibles.

From: hernanHRM/AOR Date: December 16, 2007 at 9:32
Este es el Albun Perfecto de AOR!!!!10/10

From: erik Date: April 25, 2009 at 7:23
I have to disagge with Jessica and i am totally in line with ZLD, Andrea and HernanHRM. This is one superb cd. Fantastic AOR. Cool voice.not a nummer that you want to skip. Altho the last song could have done better. End with a rocker I think Paul Sabu is at his very best here. Yep a quite unkown gem of an album. Love it 92/100

From: erik Date: April 25, 2009 at 7:39
I cant shake You, We dont remember Why, Dance the Night away, Wanderlust, Let it Rock, Heart to Heart are each gems on their own. Aor/melodic rock the way i love it.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 9, 2010 at 13:35
Finally i got myself this jewel!!!..a great female singer that shamely only recorded this album.The producer was none other than Mr Paul Sabu (i was wonderin' what can possibly go wrong with such a musician!).Back in the 80's i bought a single of the artist with 2 songs ("Wanderlust" & "We Don't Remember When",both awesome tunes!)but now after listening the whole thing i can add "Dance The Night Away" and "Heart To Heart" apart from the beautiful semi ballad "A Cry away" as my favourites too..the album closes with "From Now On" wich sends you to a night time ridin'!!!...as i said,shamely only one album but what a blast of an album!.Highly recommended...92/100

From: 123charpenay Date: November 12, 2011 at 17:55
this time i am not ok with my friend rick.i think that this record is decent not more.not a bad album but when you have in your collection tindrum (first record),witness,laos,perfect crime,two of a kind,darby mills,pat benatar,alannah myles, lee aaron,agnes,isis child(french band),robin beck,ect ect ect.this record seems a child who want fight against an adult.paul sabu make a good job on this album but he is very far to top class females singers i mentionned.

From: JONBONPIGO Date: February 4, 2013 at 16:36
Not one song stood out..they all seemed to meld together..Nothing said PLAY ME AGAIN!!!! Vocalist is Top notch..Sass Jordan/Darby Mills Pipes..music is good..Just nothing memorable..this is like Elevator music of the late 80's...nothing offensive & nothing attention grabbing.

From: hair metal again Date: September 30, 2014 at 9:11
excellent debut by ALEXA ,reissued by MTM!of course the star here is the great Paul Sabu and his amazing songwriting!the approach is strictly commercial and that s a good thing!"we don t remember why","dance the night away","a cry away" and "wanderlust" are the highlights of this fine piece of hard rock music

From: 123charpenay Date: September 3, 2016 at 16:43
