For me it's one of the best last year's release. If you like , aor , similiar in places to BLVD or RENEGADE (canada), with a lot of keys, you will like this one. 8/10

This is very polished AOR but it's just a bit too cheesy and slick for my tastes. It still has some very catchy moments but doesn't quite reach the heights IMHO.

From: AOR freaky Date: March 18, 2004 at 5:16
Great act on a great label (Escape !) ! This is by no means hardrock, but subtle light AOR ! And it's, just like their first album (which you should check out pronto), first class stuff. Maybe a bit soft for some, but just not poppy enough to call it pop ! After all, in this band there are ex-members from the mighty canadian Boulevard, and we all know what a brilliant band that was. First Shot is not from the same high level as Boulevard, but damned fine, and better than most current releases !

En mi opinión, sin ser un disco brillante, es bastante bueno, sobre todo gracias a temas como "Skin deep" (vaya teclados!!), "I can't get over you" (perfecta para single), "Into the night", "It must be magic" (genial!!), "The more things change" y el tema sin acreditar "Oh why" (muy bueno también). Sin duda, un viaje de regreso a los '80 que, realizado desde los tiempos que corren, resulta muy refrescante. Destacar también la atmosfera melancólica del tema "Somewhere in time" ... Cd recomendado!

From: Rycheage Date: May 13, 2004 at 23:54
The songs are varied, which helps embellish the interest factor. The opener 'Dealer Of Love' is a fantastic tune. 'Skin Deep' has the same sort of sound as heard on the latest Body Electric release, while the ballad 'Somewhere In Time' is probably best described as a working mans' version of I-Ten. 'All Through The Night' is very keyboard dominated, some rough 'n' tough guitar lines in there too. I'm quite impressed to be honest. Without doubt, this is a far superior release.

Love this band. Liked their first release. They topped it even with their second release. Real feel good AOR. The voice suits the music perfectly. So mucht better then most current releases yes. Good songwriting, catchy chorusses, and nice variety in the songs also. Get it ! erikhardam@hetnet.nl

From: AOR freaky Date: August 10, 2004 at 7:11
Rik, you have taste, man ! This is a great new band (how could they go wrong with some ex-Boulevard guys in the band ? !), just as Final Frontier is ! I'm happy there are still people with good taste (heard Great Dane !) here !

From: Rik Date: January 6, 2005 at 8:25
Hey AOR freaky if you love these guys you will without a doubt like T'Bell also. Do you know them ? If you need anything( aor,melodic rock music) just drop me a line at erikhardam@hetnet.nl Always willing to share !

As with 'From The Hip', another Vaults release. Very much the same comments as for that one, although i will add that i prefer a few more of the tracks on this one. Definately a case of cherry picking the best tracks from both and putting them on one compilation.

From: YIRO SEVENTH Date: June 23, 2007 at 15:15
MUY BUEN DISCO DE AOR!! Claro que si. En la onda de BOULEVARD, RENEGADE, BRYAN ADAMS, es decir AOR de marca CANADIENSE...No es una joya, pero si muy recomendado si nos gustan todas esas bandas citadas. Aqui destaco el buen trabajo de guitarras que nunca llegan a eclipsar a los teclados; la voz es competente... quizá los temas no acaben de enganchar completamente, pero en si... muy buen disco, por supuesto

From: erik Date: September 25, 2009 at 10:59
Exellent AOR. Just the way i love it. My favorite songs are the brilliant Dealer of Love, Skin Deep, All through the Night, I cant get Over you,Dont take me for a Fool and It must be Magic. Great release ! 88/100

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 21, 2010 at 15:38
More or less in the same line as "From The Hip"..very good Pop/AOR tracks is what we have in here!..."Dealer Of Love" opens the album being a very good song,"Skin Deep" is definetely a highlight,"All Through The Night" is a catchy one,"I Can't Get Over You" apart from nice,is another highlight song,the same goes to "Girl Like You","It Must Be Magic" is another catchy one and "The More Things Change" is my personal fave,it has a great catchy chorus!(there's a hidden track at the end of this one that also is a pretty good song)...both albums of the band are really worth to have if you are into the poppier side of AOR...87/100

From: Locoaor Date: June 7, 2017 at 14:12
Que buen disco, AOR canadiense de buena calidad como nos tienen acostumbrados, mi tema preferido "Skin Deep", el resto muy rescatble.
