From: ROB GARCIA Date: February 26, 2004 at 17:00
i've been told that this is very good.any comments anyone?.

From: Rycheage Date: March 8, 2004 at 23:54
The music is good without being overly dynamic. It's not paint by numbers exactly, but it's definitely missing something. The opening pair of songs "Never Surrender" and "Make Believe" don't do anything for me unfortunately. When they do get it together, it's impressive. "Jaimee" is primetime AOR with those typically 80's keyboards and melodies shining through. "Patiently" as a ballad, is another, where the vocals zero in on John Elefante territory.

not bad at all.in the vain of steelheart lane but not as good.its worth getting imo.

From: jessica96fish Date: April 19, 2004 at 19:24
forget the steelheart thing.i ment steelhouse lane.not much differance lol

From: gener8tr Date: August 20, 2004 at 11:37
Don't be fooled or frieghtened by the year 2000 release date... This album was actually recorded in 1991 and had been ripening on the vine since then. Pretty good early 90's stuff.

From: Geoff Date: August 22, 2004 at 5:53
I certainly wish this was similar to Steelhouse Lane, unfortunately I think it is far more similar to a lot of second rate AOR bands. Not too bad and I really liked a lot of the CDs on first listen. So don't get me wrong, it's a good AOR CD with some great songs - just not a great one, IMO.

From: TIM (2) Date: August 31, 2004 at 5:10
This one reminds me of a heavier Mecca. It tends to rely on subtle hooks and melodies rather than big punchy choruses. It sounds 10 years more dated than it's original 1991 recording date, but is pretty decent AOR. It also lacks real killer songs, as only the brilliant "Jaimee" and "Patiently" fall into that mould, the latter sounding very Journey-like. Also the first 2 tracks (as mentioned above) are the weakest on offer, but otherwise this is reasonable. 6/10.

From: Jaimee Date: October 8, 2004 at 7:01
Bought the CD purely for the track 'JAIMEE'(my name!)Very impressed with all the tracks. 10/10

From: crok Date: October 21, 2004 at 15:41

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 29, 2005 at 20:12

Great AOR music. This is a really good CD. The best song for me is Patiently, but there uptempo songs are also nice. Give this CD a chance. 6/10

From: Clayton77 Date: January 3, 2011 at 6:27
Great AOR music with tons of highlights, but the standout-track is JAIMEE!!!

From: JONBONPIGO Date: October 11, 2014 at 19:23
"JAIMEE"...great Upbeat Rockin' tune..I could almost see Rick Springfield singing it back in the early/mid 80's...Would've made "America's Top 40" for sure..
