Stunning AOR release ! Great album, a bit specially done, but nonetheless great ! Glad to see this finally on these pages !

From: Paolo Date: March 18, 2004 at 6:49
This one is pure keyboards Heaven!! Tracks 1,2,3 and 7 will leave you breathless. Quite hard to find but really worth the search.

From: ROB GARCIA Date: March 18, 2004 at 11:28
outstanding aor from this great canadians!!.refugee specialises in well thought out yet fresh and smooth aor wich especially the guitars and the harmony vocals appealed to the imagination.their first album called "affairs in babylon" is also a great release that you should keep an eye on.

From: aorjocke Date: March 18, 2004 at 11:36
The second release from this classic AOR band is a really good one!They have a style of their own, but after a few listenings you'll be hooked...My own favorites are "Love Survives", "American Dream" just GREAT AOR songs!And the killer ballad "Lay Me Down"...what more can I say....a must!

From: TIM Date: March 18, 2004 at 11:44
I'll definately have to try this one out since it comes so highly recommended.

From: [Ita]Andrea Date: March 18, 2004 at 12:39
A great album, a classic AOR album to own and love.

From: M. Allen Date: March 20, 2004 at 23:08
Those who know me know I'd rather set fire to my boxers with me still in 'em than listen to AOR, but this CD is one of the exceptions to the rule. With a good balance between melodic guitars & smooth keys and an emphasis on catchy hooks, this album earns its status as a pricey collector's piece. Well worth tracking down. AOR fans should run toward this one like cops running toward a table of free donuts.

From: koogles Date: March 21, 2004 at 12:28
Like a Heartland version of Magnum at times, this is nonetheless an AOR gem. Something to definitely keep an eye out for when combing the used CD shops. Myles Hunter was formerly in Avalon and later released a solo album called "Northern Union". Neither can touch his work with Refugee.... "Survival in the Western World" is pure melodic brilliance!

DIOS MIO UNO DE LOS MEJORES ALBUMS QUE HE ESCUCHADO EN MI VIDA, UN SONIDO PERFECTO HABER A AQUELLOS MUCHACHOS DE HABLA HISPANA A COMENTAR SOBRE ESTE ALBUM UN CLASICO ABSOLUTO DEL AOR THIS ALBUM IS KILLER JAJAJA UNOS JUEGOS DE TECLADO COMO NUNCA HE ESCUCHADO, SIMPLEMENTE UN CLASICO ABSOLUTO DE LOS 80'S JAJA ES DIFICIL ENCONTRARLO PERO ES UNA JOYA ABSOLUTA DENTRO DEL GENERO. ESTE ES EL TIPO DE AOR QUE ME GUSTA ESCUCHAR SIMPLEMENTE EXQUISITO. SALUDOS DESDE ICA-PERU.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 11, 2004 at 4:41
THIS ALBUM IS A SUPERCLASIC IN THE AOR IS KILLER.YO LO RECOMIENDO PUNTUACION 1000 DE 1000!!!!! YEAHHHHH.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 11, 2004 at 4:44
COMPREN O MUERAN. SALUDOS PA MI PATA MARIO. MY GOD THAT SONGS. ARE KILLERS THIS IS THE ALBUM PURE AOR 80'S. YEAHHHHHHHHH.

From: K.K. Poland Date: July 10, 2004 at 8:19
good AOR, but not fantastic, 7/10 nawet niez³e ;-)

From: Rycheage Date: July 17, 2004 at 2:52
Pure class on this one. From the anthemic "Power" and the stunning "Burning From The Inside Out" this screams classic. Extremely hard to find but I think worth the $$. The band is tight and the production is excellent. Great stuff.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: September 11, 2004 at 2:52
POWER IS KILLER, POR ESE EMPIEZO QUE TIENE, UN EMPIEZO COMO POCOS QUE E ESCUCHADO, PERO "LOVE SURVIVES" ES EL MEJOR TEMA DEL ALBUM. PURE AOR.

From: z4roxx Date: February 28, 2005 at 20:02
Why there isn't yet the Myles Hunter solo release in the site?Honestly I didn't hear yet both Refugee's cd's but I think they are quite different than his solo cd who I consider a very good aor cd.But I can't write a comment for a cd on another cd's page even if he's the Refugee singer....

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: March 7, 2005 at 4:47
NO ESTÁ MAL este 2º disco de Refugee pero bajo mi punto de vista no logra superar ni tan siquiera igualar el nivel que poseia su anterior "Affairs In Babylon".El estilo sigue siendo el mismo que en el debut,un AOR muy típico de mediados de los ochenta donde los teclados llevan la voz cantante,una especie de versión canadiense de Virginia Wolf,solo hay que escuchar "Love Survives","American Dream" o el tema inicial para apreciar que las melodias tecleras tienen bastante influencia británica.7/10.

From: AOR freaky Date: March 8, 2005 at 3:27
Just writing about this one to tell everyone, as you probably know !, that their Affairs In Babylon will be released on CD on MTM Classix ! This one is great stuff, but I even think that AIB blows it away ! Nice to see that that MASTERPIECE will be released on CD soon !!

From: TIM (2) Date: April 21, 2005 at 12:33
Wow, this is fetching some serious amounts of cash. It's really excellent AOR, just the right balance between guitar/keys and some quality songwriting. "Love Survives" (great keys on this one) & "American Dream" are the highlights IMO, but "Lay Me Down" also stands out. A couple of fillers - and the fact that I've never really liked Hunter's gruff vocal style - affect my opinion of this, but this is very highly recommended. ATLANTIC's "Power" is the nearest comparitor I can come up with. 8.5/10.

From: ROBERT Date: April 21, 2005 at 20:06
Estoy con Champis: Me kedo con el 1º, y eso q este es muy pero q muy bueno... AOR del q me mola a mi: CLASICO, PURO, MAGICO...d la Buena epoca en definitiva!! Super Recomendado!!

From: Lovedrive Date: January 6, 2006 at 16:14
Yo tambien me quedo con el primero, aunque tampoco lo considero un discazo..

From: lalorock Date: September 3, 2006 at 13:45
Que discazo la de estos canadienses Refugee, canciones donde el teclado es una parte muy importante en cada canción, ese tema de apertura Survival in the... esta lleno de magia por la melodía, coros y ese punteo de guitarra asesino,the beauty of pain otra gran canción con ese intro guitarra que da paso a bajo y batería maravillosos,love survives otra hard rockera excelente, lay me down que balada,la voz del cantante muy original, power otra de mis favoritas,Pink Floyd?,no tiene fillers 9/10.

From: zandi Date: November 10, 2006 at 10:30
Sensational Album !! I've got the vinyl of it and it is time that this brillant CD will be re-released officially as soon as possible !! So many bad CDs become reissued but not the great ones like this ... Very sad but - unfortunately - true !!!

From: Carlos A. Date: December 23, 2006 at 13:24
Una gozada de disco, y valida la observacion: las bandas Canadienses como siempre cañerazas en el estilo....este "Burning From The Inside Out" posee suficientes buenos temas del mejor AOR que pario la decada 80´s.... y que teclados para magnificos!!!!!! "The Beauty Of Pain" entre mis favoritas. Meritoria continuacion de su primer disco tambien hermoso 9/10.

From: Refugee80 Date: July 27, 2007 at 13:28
Awesum record, not as good as the first album but that would be impossible the 1st album is the most underatted album i know this album i fantastic strangely its the opening few tracks i think are weak but after that it blows you away such a shame they didnt make more music

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: May 7, 2008 at 20:15
A great AOR album, seriously!. I think this album is better that the first one. I think we find better compositions, more complete, with Myles Hunter making great interpretations and Again... Those fabulous Keyboards. My favorite tracks are: "The Beauty Of Pain", "Love Survives", "Burninf From The Inside Out" and the song which contains one of my favorite Keyboard intros: "Survival In The Western World", man only because of this song, this band deserves to be remembered by, this is the kind of song that inmediately rises yo up!!

From: peter neal Date: July 16, 2008 at 9:53
a classic!

From: Refugee80 Date: August 28, 2008 at 8:57
the 2nd best album of all time behind the first one, seriously best band ive ever known so sad theres so little from them

From: Harald Date: November 16, 2008 at 10:38
This has just been reissued through NL Distribution in Germany, licened from the original Polydor/Polygram record label, only 1000 copies, so hurry up.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 1, 2010 at 22:04
Ummm sorry guys but it wasn't my cup of tea at all..i expected somethin' more like stomping your feet and sing along 80's AOR stuff but i found in here a quite simple album..well a matter of taste as i always say and respecting people's opinion about this one..the album starts with a solid song "Survival In The Western World","Love Survives" is one of my faves also with "Burning From The Inside Out" and "American Dream".."Lay Me Down" is nice and "Violence" is cool...the album perhaps is enjoyable but nothing really exciting at least for me..i'll spin it again in order to see if i could change my mind but at first listening..doubts...78/100

From: smiley89 Date: September 3, 2010 at 16:41
Recently picked this one up for next to nothing (original W German issue). There is no doubt these guys had talent! I'll have to give this a few more spins but as of now I'd say it will remain in my collection. Quality melodic rock/AOR you can't find now days.

From: happy2849 Date: December 5, 2010 at 11:36
Another I have had for a few years and plan on keeping it. Top-notch Canadian AOR the way it was supposed to be played. I'm always pulling out cd's from my collection to play and this one gets a lot of play. A must have!

From: hair metal again Date: September 6, 2016 at 5:16
pretty good release for REFUGEE back in 87 that could be better if the songs have bigger choruses !the band has a fine balance between keys and guitars and the musicianship ,production are of the highest level!the songs though arent as strong as they should with the exception of "love survives" and "survival in the western world"!good stuff in general but nothing blowminding
