|Excellent AOR is what we got here! I find this record back in 88, so I have listened to it for a while, It's still one of my favourites... Johnny Lindsey's voice It's just perfect, what a feeling he have! The whole album is very strong, but there are some tracks that raise over the rest "Never Gonna Go","Let's Not Turn Love Away","Look Away" and one of my alltime favourite songs "Don't Play Your Ace" who all are awesome AOR songs!If you like well produced AOR with good harmony vocals like "Skaga

|1988 was a great year for aor music as many classic albums came out during that time and this is one of them.trade winds was for tradia what hysteria was for def leppard or escape was for journey a real masterpiece;its a real shame that they weren't signed to a bigger label during that time because the chances for this band to make it big could've been huge.everything that you love about aor its inside this album...you name it!...vocals,keyboards,hooks...etc.its been 16 years since it came out

|Coming at ya from the Styx and Prophet end of the melodic rock spectrum, combining a spectacular mix of heavy piano and synth layers, augmented with some fantastic guitar lines and super vocals by Johnny Lindsay.

|Indeed a very, very fine AOR record. See what specialist above have written. I only can say they tell the truth !

|Flicking through some old vinyl,I found this 80s gem.It has all the AOR qualitys from that era.Johnny Lindsay has a lush vocal,with the music tailored just for it.Can anybody tell me if you can get this on CD please,because I was told that FM/REVOLVER wouldnt do it,but that may have changed.Thank You.

|Great AOR album, un gran album de AOR sin ninguna duda, muy completo, un grupo con con un sonido muy particular y unico, un gran Johnny Lindsey en las voces, uno de los ganadores del 88, un clasico que no debe faltar por ningun motivo en tu coleccion. Recomendado 100%. saludos desde Santiago-Ica-Peru.

|This is a great AOR album and very rare to be found.It is more rare than many other so called "rare","oop","htf" albums that are around in interent market.If you are interested more on this album you can email me at : email@example.com

|This one really escaped me the first time round, but holy crap, some of these songs are just outstanding!!! Tracks 2-5 are just brilliant, especially the beautiful 'Look away'. Unfortunately there are a couple of average fillers around the 3/4 mark and end of the album, but those 4 tracks are brilliant. Great melodic rock and worthwhile for those tracks alone.

|It's nice to see that almost everybody likes this group. Really excellent CD and the same goes to follow up CD, Welcome To Paradise. I'm glad I have on my collection.

|Comienzan con "Sweet Sixteen" temazo por donde se le mire. Un album que pasó desapercibido en su tiempo pero que te dejará sin aliento. Melodías que enganchan a la primera oída, teclados y sonido "mágicos". La voz me recordó a Murray Daigle de los recientes Emeral Rain ("Don't Play Your Ace"). "Without You" y "Exiles" son las baladas, excelentes. Mis favoritas son la 1,4,6 y 9 pero el album es totalmente imprescindible. 9.3/10

|Great AOR! Reminds me of an American version of Glory (Danger In This Game) especially the vocals. "Let's Not Turn Love Away" "Look Away" "Stand Your Ground" "Don't Play Your Ace" and "Take The Chance" are my favorites off this album. The opening riff of "Stand Your Ground" sounds much like The Outlaws and "Look Away" is an excellent mid-tempo west coast style AOR song.

|This one seams good.Good aor in a typical european style but they are americans ahahah.The singer is also ok.

|Great Britain most certainly did produce some quality AOR in the 80's, but how come these guys are never mentioned in the same breath as say, Shy, Strangeways, FM or Dare? They should, as this is right up there with the best of them. All killer, no filler stuff with a brilliant singer to boot. Get it if you find it...10/10.
