From: TIM (2) Date: October 21, 2004 at 4:40
Good quality, solid Brit AOR with plenty of keys and some excellent songwriting. "Don't Keep me Waiting" and "When it Rains" are the highlights here, but if you love your keyboard-driven AOR then you could do worse then check this out. Their "Human Fire" album was equally as good. A few Prog elements which is not my bag, but if you like FM and Asia and Passion Street etc then you'll enjoy both albums. 7/10 (for each).

From: Nanteau Date: October 24, 2004 at 13:55
"SILVER LIGHTS" is such a good song that the rest seems not even average against. "SLEEPING ALONE" is a very emotional ballad for all who make the experience to sleep suddenly alone again However, HUMANFIRE (10/10) is FAR better than this one (6/10).

From: Axe Machine Date: November 11, 2004 at 5:32
Easily comparible to the Passion Street album 'Million Miles Away', and while TIM (2)'s comparison to FM is not (no pun intended) a million miles away, they neither have the songs or voice to match such a magnificant AOR band. 7/10

¿este Grupo toco en el primer Gods Of Aor, Verdad? No los tengo muy oidos la verdad...

From: Aorforever Date: November 23, 2006 at 12:54
Great album. Good voice! 'Sleepin' is indeed a emotional ballad, but good! . 'Silver Lights' is SUPER!

From: Aorforever Date: November 23, 2006 at 12:54
Excuse me ''Sleeping Alone'.

From: z4roxx Date: December 2, 2006 at 11:10
Wow,that’s wonderful release.Stellar pompous class melodick rock/aor,10 times better than the second one and personally one of the best English cds’IMO.Not a single filler here,a perfect mix between Alias and Newman.Highly recommended!!!

From: peterpoland Date: January 26, 2007 at 17:41
Perfect AOR ! Try to imagine a blend of BLVD and Atlantic and Passion Street. Lots of guitars, sweet 80s keyboards and a great singer (very similar to David Forbes of BLVD).

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: January 26, 2007 at 18:22
Great AOR/Melodic Hard Rock, tiempo que tengo sus 2 trabajos y es de lo mejor que pario los 90's el estilo Newman, Passion Street, Street Talk, Alias, Atlantic una combinacion de estas bandas que son una garantia en el mundo del Rock ambos trabajos se llevan un 9/10 y eso ya es suficiente para tenerlo.

From: shoemaker Date: October 8, 2007 at 19:14
Great opener. They start heavy like Malmsteen, but then they lack quality.

From: juan carlos Date: September 6, 2008 at 1:31
Correct peterpoland. Very Good British MHR/AOR. "Holding Out For A Miracle" "Don't Keep Me Waiting" "Holding On" are the highlights and define this album, "Sleeping Alone" is a good/beautiful ballad. Catchy Chorus and really good solos/Keyboards. 8.8/10

From: darobinson Date: February 22, 2010 at 13:11
This could have been superb with a better singer. Just my two pennies.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 2, 2012 at 20:23
Top notch debut!!!...a band that surely deserved some recognition at least in Europe but well,the media was,as usual,blind for some acts..."End Of The Game" opens fire with a good rocking vibe but is followed immediately by a nice AOR song in the shape of "You Are The One",some other good AOR moments are "Holding Out For A Miracle","Don't Keep Me Waiting" & the enormous "Silver Lights" that probably is the best cut of the album...if you want to rock like the first track then "Restless" is the second option...if you have the chance to grab both band's releases then do not think it twice...GET THEM RIGHT AWAY!!!...93/100

From: 123charpenay Date: June 22, 2015 at 13:32
brilliant hard f m,very melodic,good sound and great production.but..... the "singer" is awful.he have absoluty no voice.he ruins the cd.like say darobinson in 2010 with a real singer this record could be very very great.for sure when we sings under our shower we are better than him.
