From: Wotty Date: January 30, 2005 at 9:53
Brilliant,addictive and quality.No other desciption necessary !!!!!

From: AOR freaky Date: January 30, 2005 at 10:47
Decent, even good, but far from brilliant, this one ! Wotty is a bit overenthusiastic, I'm afraid !

From: Wotty Date: January 30, 2005 at 10:50
This dog's not for biting !!!!

From: AOR freaky Date: January 30, 2005 at 11:14
Like on many things recently : I'm afraid we won't agree about this one, Wotty ! Your taste is not mine, and vice versa !

Great to have this on CD finally, as i have all of Mr.Janz's other releases. Whilst not my favourite (That would go to the mighty 'Renegade Romantic' album), this is a very good release of high tech Canadian rock ala Zappacosta, Marc Jordan type of thing - you know the score. Oh Freaky - Wotty Overenthusiastic, thats a laugh especially coming from you !!!!!

From: Anti Freaky Date: January 30, 2005 at 22:06
to AOR freaky - look at yourself! Is it wrong being overenthusiastic? Because I have seen you being overenthusiastic for most of the times!!! You blame the others just because they have different opinions than you. You've got a lot to learn, freak... musical tastes are the matter of opinions... no wonder why people here dislike you! You're a mad selfish person who always think that whatever you said is right... how pathetic!

From: AOR freaky Date: January 31, 2005 at 6:34
Dear Jez and Anti Freaky (am I that famous ? !) : thanks again, but to say it in your words, mr. Anti : your comment, attack and insults on me are pathetic ! I've said this is a good record, not a great one ! Is that wrong ? ! And yes, Wotty is sometimes overenthusiastic (admitted : I'm that too !), but he has still a lot to learn. Who not ? ! (I wrote it before you guys write this ; joke !). All the best !!!!!!

From: rocky Date: January 31, 2005 at 7:46
hey guys !!!! why argue on something we all agree about....this is a good album, let those who are more enthusiastic about an album than others be that...we all love and cherish the same type of music anyway (aor / westcoast and melodic rock)...take care !

From: Geoff Date: February 1, 2005 at 19:46
I don't even know this album or like this artist, but what happened? Did Wotty commit the ultimate sin and not agree with AOR Freaky on A CD? I recall a few months ago Wotty was your best online buddy, AOR Freaky. What happened? Was it just because he disagreed with one of your statements? Either way Wotty, you did the best thing possible which I cannot seem to do, and ignored him. I have thus far, but am getting annoyed by the 'What I say is fact' nature again of Mr Freaky (eg. Outland CD).

From: AOR freaky Date: February 2, 2005 at 3:45
Thanks Geoff ! I know who you are ! Let's keep it that way ! If you think I'm arrogant, a look in the mirror would do you good, man ! And, I never attack people personally, the same can't be said of you. And I don't wanna spoil more words on a person like you. What happened between Wotty and me is nothing you have to know ! R.I.P., and we'll all be glad and happy ! All the best, and I mean it. But let me live my life !

From: Geoff Date: February 3, 2005 at 3:36
You never attack people personally yet you tell a man to R.I.P. I think I'd rather call a man a penis bearded Gopher than wish him dead!I don't get your two lines after the greeting either. That's just odd. Anyway, I got no problems with you, just remember there's folk out there with different opinions and the words that come from your mouth are not declared fact on the spot. BTW, never said you couldn't live your life

From: AOR freaky Date: February 3, 2005 at 3:58
No problem, agreed !

From: TIM (2) Date: February 10, 2005 at 2:57
Quality disc. 'Renegade Romantic' and 'Electricity' are his 2 best, but this still contains more than enough quality material to make it worth owning. 8/10.

From: GlenRavine Date: February 11, 2005 at 15:37
Fantastic - catchy chorus and great production makes this a must for all AOR lovers.

From: Lovedrive Date: January 30, 2006 at 7:25
Buen disco pero prefiero de largo los siguientes. Este tiene un sonido algo desfasadillo.

From: lalo r.o.c.k. Date: February 8, 2010 at 22:17
Catchy melodic AOR,full with great keyboards,Donīt Cry tonight,Close my eyes,Cover to cover and Right from the start are my favorites,if you find it,get it you wonīt regret it,8.5/10.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 14, 2011 at 20:40
Brilliant release!!!...AOR with a solid beat..some kinda of Hi-Tech AOR here and there but sophisticated...best shots are "High Strung","Don't Cry Tonight"(lovely smooth one,catchy),"All I Have","Go To Pieces"(the hit single of the album and with a good video) & "Waiting"...great artist from Canada...90/100
