|I am undoubtedly going to be slammed here, but POL have failed YET again. Terrible lyrics, cliched music and over rated vocals. Peterik should let Hitchcock do ALL the lead as he has not got a great vocal himself. Hitchcock on the other hand is vastly over rated, so what do they do? When i first heard him on the first album i liked his vocal but now it does absolutely nothing for me. Jim Peterik needs to get back writing with Frankie Sullivan, it's what he is best at. POL are simply not good enough. I will never waste my time or spend my hard earned money again on this band ever again. They have had more than enough chances to come up with something special and in my opinion they fail miserably every single time. Time for Peterik to get back with Survivor or pack it the hell in.

|POL is back once again!!!...and what a new release they've delivered in here,songs with that "trade mark" tipically of the Hitchcock/Peterik association...for me the album is a top notch one basically in its 95% to say the least..."Immortal","Delusional"(hit single),"Tie Down The Wind"(nice),"Shine On","Everything That Money Can't Buy"(killer solid ballad),"Coin Of The Realm","Sending My Love"(killer mid tempo)& "Ask Me Yesterday" were my faves...recommended eyes closed!!!...91/100

|All three of the past POL releases were really good in my book, if a little over the top in places...so I was quite surprised that I didn't really rate ANY song on this album above average..and I can pretty much say that has never ever happened with me before on any AOR type disc. Don't get me wrong.It's not terrible and it won't surprise me at all if the AOR mafiosi declare this one a masterpiece.. Opinions are just that,but in my considered one, it has to be said this is musically cliched and bog average, lyrically awful and generally a big big let down. One for he Peterik fanboys.

|Andrew of M.R.Com gave this release a 95/100. But I think the fan base on this site know more than him. No matter what POL put out McNiece would give tham a high rating. I was going to purchase this CD just because of Andrew's high rating, but thanks to ratings on this site, I'll save my cash.

|This. Is. TERRIBLE. Not in a "These guys suck" or "The production here stinks" way, because those don't apply here -- it's a "What the fuck is this shit material?" problem. Holy hell, this album is like some gawdawful Tim Rice wannabe Broadway soundtrack. It doesn't help that Toby Hitchcock (who I normally enjoy) is getting his full-bore theatrical boom voice on, driving the lyrics deep down into your spinal chord. Speaking of lyrics, "cheesy" doesn't even begin to describe them -- "Third-rate Yale School of Drama" is more apt. Yeah, I GET that Peterik wanted some kind of concept album to "tell a story," but he should just write a damn musical and get it out of his system instead of inflicting his modern showtunes tendencies on us music fans who'd rather he stick to crafting enjoyable, rocking AOR. Sure, it's all well-played and highly produced (as you'd expect), but that's wasted on material suited for the housewives' night out at the local playhouse. Get it together, Jim. 50 / 100
