A REAL GREAT GEM !! I think 'It's Love' will always be one of my all time favourite songs Such a great ballad I could at best compare to HEART'S 'Alone' & GIUFFRIA'S 'Say it isn't true'.

From: AOR-MESSIAH Date: May 12, 2004 at 15:11
Did this ever come out on CD ? Does anyone know where I can get a copy ? allan.l@blueyonder.co.uk

From: dennis Date: June 15, 2004 at 7:38
Yes, it dit come out on CD, but I don´t think it is in stock anymore . They´re Dutch, just like me, by the way . I´ve got the CD

From: Geoff Date: December 28, 2004 at 3:41
There are a few pretty cool songs on this one. A few odd, strange and really quite bad songs, but some good ones. I wouldn't pay anywhere near $92 for it and strongly advise a CDR, but it's okay. Decent AOR / melodic hard rock album.

From: TIM Date: March 16, 2005 at 23:25
I agree with Geoff- not much here. A coupld of okay tunes.

From: howe Date: April 27, 2005 at 16:26
I have a tape with a few songs from this album. "It's Love" is a truly fantastic ballad. This is in my want list, but I'm not gonna pay 90$ to get it. Someone out there that could send me a copy, or at least the song "It's Love" on mp3? My e-mail is xviii@sapo.pt

From: Japangea Date: March 26, 2008 at 19:46
One song,"It's Love",was appeared on the compilation CD entitled "Soft Side Of Hard Rock" together with Paganini,Treat,Keel etc.

From: newscandi Date: April 4, 2008 at 16:39
Yeah, and that's actually the best song here! The other ballad "Say it isn't so" is near as good. The rest more sounds like Huey Lewis And The News and shocked me as I listened to the complete album first because I expected something different. It's still a very good indie all the way 83/100

From: juan carlos Date: September 5, 2010 at 1:14
Very Good Melodic HardRock/AOR in my book There are few Great songs with cool Tunes/Choruses and nice keyboards. "We Won't Wait 'Til Saturday" "It's Love" "Say It Isn't So" "Home Again (Lover's On A Telephone Line)" and "Home Again" are Great Tracks and my favorites of course. 8.5/10

ok release by NO EXQZE through Mercury records!Despite the big company and the well known producer(Tony Platt) the band doesnt deliver in general and i believe that the problem is the strange singer and lack of big songs!on the other hand the musicianship is excellent and their approach pretty good and i can find one beautiful song "home again(lovers on the telephone line)"!nothin special here ,just ok
