Excellent cd.Great keyboards and guitar artworks.Back in the 80s with this one.Reminds me a lot of Journey and Aviator.

From: Clayton77 Date: January 5, 2007 at 6:57
!!!!!WOW, listen to one of the most perfect AOR-Masterpiece in the world!!!! Take the best of JOURNEY, mix it with the best of STYX and you`ll have an album with majestic keyboards, virtuos guitars and a voice (Blair Ramsey) filled with pure gold (like a mix between John Schlitt and Freddie Mercury). Here are NO fillers...JUST killers!!!!!! If you`re listen to songs like "Holding", "Back again" and "Lost" you`ll feel the true AOR-Paradise!!!!! (10/10)

The songs were actually written in 1990. This one is so much better than the debut album!

Good AOR, if you like the style of the first 80's this one is for you, "Holding, Back Again, Lost, Still Life Lover, Pain & Surrounded By Fire" best songs IMO, 80/100.

Ummm...the poor production killed the good willing of the songs IMO...and the songs were just ok too,nothing so extraordinaire...tracks 3,4(great ballad),5,6 & 7 were the ones that caught my attention...78/100

From: 123charpenay Date: July 17, 2012 at 18:11
very surprise by others comments.ok with rick.for making short excellent reviews in europe (rock time for example in france) but in reality very very average a o r.nothing extraordinary keep your money. there is many thousands better records than this.
