this is JS at their best(listen to "nothing`s gonna stop","set the night"),together with love among..and knee deep....absolute a classic. where can i get buy this on cd, i have it on vinyl?

From: Gar Date: March 18, 2004 at 18:02
I really like all of the Mickey Thomas-era Starship albums and this one's no exception. "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" was all over the radio way back when, and it's a credit to the quality of the song that I'm not sick of it today. The other songs still hold up as well. Rocky, this cd sells cheap on both Amazon and Ebay. Also I see it pretty often at used cd stores. Keep looking...it's not hard to find.

From: koogles Date: March 26, 2004 at 12:50
A Starship enterprise of poppy proportions. I skip "Beat Patrol" to get right to the two major hits, then throw this CD into the off position in favor of the excellent follow-up "Love Among the Cannibals".

From: BWH"Indonesia" Date: August 25, 2004 at 5:44
Perfect example of AOR, keyboard-driven, party oriented, fun and very rockmantic. Although many people despised this album, it is still one of my favourites. Listen to their chords, fantastic. Not all rock musician can create such chord progressions. Full of harmony transpositions in the tradition of David Foster, Toto or Chicago where the power rock lovers usually dislike. Wings Of A Lie is great.

From: Wachen Date: April 11, 2005 at 14:46
This is almost as good as "Love among the cannibals" if it weren't for the sometimes wimpy duet-parts between the master Mickey Thomas and Grace Slick. She's a good singer but she sure doesn't fit in here IMO. Standout tracks are; "Nothings gonna stop us now" (their best hitsong), It's not over ('til it's over) and the haunting "Say when"... 7/10

From: The Dolphin Date: April 11, 2005 at 17:18
Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now is an incredible song!Perfect aor!But the rest of the album is too pop-oriented

Dissapointing album number two, and for me, worse than 'Knee Deep In The Hoopla', there are some goodish tracks on this, but this is nowhere near their best material, and nowhere near their best album either (see 'Freedom At point Zero in the Jefferson Era, and 'Love Among The Cannibals').

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: April 15, 2005 at 1:08
Ahhh Starship a Classic AOR Band, Good AOR album con sus toques de Pop, quien no conoce a esta leyenda, un gran trabajo que tiene buenos temas como la clasica mundial Nothing's Gonna Stop(la mejor sin duda), Girls Like You, It's Not Over, I Don't Know Why, The Children, Beat Patrol buenos temas para un buen album el siguiente trabajo sin duda el mejor.

From: Lovedrive Date: January 6, 2006 at 7:29
Me encanta este disco! No es muy rockero, pero tiene ese gancho de los buenos grupos ochenteros. BEAT PATROL orgasmic song!

From: aor4sale Date: August 25, 2009 at 10:08
The second outing for the Starship sees them adopting a similar style with a few experiments thrown in for good measure. From 'Beat Patrol' with it's slight Dancey flavour through 'Nothing...' (the killer ballad from 'Mannequien') to 'Set The Night To Music' (also featured in an 80's film) this is a classic.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 26, 2011 at 21:37
Lovely album with some of Starship's mega hits!!!...my faves are "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now"(from the movie soundtrack Mannequin),"It's Not Over(Till It's Over)","Girls Like You","Wings Of A Lie"(beautiful song),"The Children","Transatlantic"(love this one )& "Babylon"...indeed this album along with their previous one made Starship huge in the 80's...recommended album...90/100

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: July 22, 2012 at 1:22
Pure shit! A ton of legendary classic-rock bands embarrassed themselves in the '80's, perhaps none more so than Starship, although at least they changed the name of the band. "Nothin's Gonna Stop Us Now" is bad enough, but the other hit, "It Ain't Over ('Til It's Over)" is just horrible! My sister had this tape when we were kids. Hated it then, hate it now.

From: edwithmj Date: October 23, 2013 at 8:45
I wouldn't call this shit Doghouse. Admittedly half of this is filler but if you like the commercial hits like I do, you'll really enjoy this album. Apart from the two commercial hits, I really like the slow and smooth I Don't Know Why, The Children and Babylon. A soft album definitely but judged on its own merit, I actually like it.

From: Reverend Mayhem Date: April 27, 2014 at 22:31
If ever an album reeked of plasticized '80s trademarks (what Steve Morse called the "vertical hair factor"), this is it. A producer's wet dream of programming, mechanized drum sounds, layer upon layer of keys and synths, choppy eighth notes -- and virtually no soul whatsoever. Poor Mickey Thomas (one of the most soulful vocalists ever) does his best to bring some passion to the fabricated, antiseptic mire (Grace just sounds worthlessly out of place on this kind of ersatz fluff), which would make all the production glitz tolerable if the songs were well-crafted and memorable. But aside from the played-to-death, soundtrack-ready "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" they're largely bland, disposable, silly '80s synth-AOR nuggets: sterile, clean, calculated -- besotted with neon, Ray-Bans and stone wash jeans. Someone growing up with this might regard it with a special nostalgia, but coming to it for the first time from the 21st century reveals it as the boring, dated ephemera that it is. 40/100

excellent pop rock release for STARSHIP with Mickey s vocals and Craig s guitar work stealing the show ,along with high quality keys from many musos and some smooth songwriting!"nothing s gonna stop us now" is a classic but the rest of the stuff is very good as well!you cant go wrong with STARSHIP
