Best thing Darby's ever done. Maybe you're approaching this like a Toronto or a Headpins record, well, this is far closer to the mannered AOR stylings of late 80s Lee Aaron or Chrissy Steele. Once you sink your teeth into "Never Look Back", you'll know you've found a gem. Total stabbing keys & anthem chorus! Next it's off to mid-tempo ballad land with "Cry to Me" & "Give It All Up". (BTW, judging from her pic inside, Shelley Andrushko (bass) is one of the hottest rocker chicks I have ever seen!)

From: Blaine Date: April 3, 2004 at 12:01
COOL!!! Darby's CD is finally here. In 1998, guitar player Corey-James Philips autographed this CD for me. Great disc. Killer cuts - first three!

From: jessica96fish Date: June 16, 2004 at 19:26
well you've heard laos witness and perfect may even have heard heat.but let me tell you this.this is a monster of an album.whether it be male or female.this has to be in my top ten female fronted cds of all time.and i've got a few let me tell you.if you do like any of the above.then this one will not disappoint.JUST BUY THE DAMN THING!!!!!!!!!

Along with the Aformentioned Chrissy Steele & Lee Aaron - S/T ,this is my favourite Female Fronted cd. Koogles is spot on when he says that this is the best thing Darby Mills has ever done (by a long mile). This contains 4 Stan Meissner written songs, of which 'Never Look Back' appeared on the mighty 'Metropolis' release a few years back. Mighty Mighty indeed

The lead guitarist on this album is fabulous,he reminds me of a Jeff Beck or the likes of,Cheers

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: March 6, 2006 at 9:25
Good AOR album, otro buen album por parte de una mujer en lo referente al AOR, bueno la mayoria de temas son AOR ahi radica lo mejor del album en especial los 2 primeros cortes que son una pasada ya que el otro porcentaje es Hard Rock(3 temas) y ahi pienso esta el bajon en algo del album pero por esos buenisimos cortes de AOR se merece un 8/10.

From: lalorock Date: November 17, 2007 at 17:13
Gran album,los temas cantados por esa grandiosa voz de la ex cantante de HEADPINS,para mí una de las mejores voces femeninas del genero,temazo de apertura Never look back(Stan Meissner la toca en su proyecto Metropolis)Cry to me excelente power ballad nostágico con un solo increible de guitarra,Give it all up otra joya del album llena de feeling y Someone turn the light on puro AOR son mis favoritas,y con esa voz para ser mujer vale oro,9/10.

fantastic debut for DARBY MILLS and really strange that it didnt have some success ,as i cant find anything missing here!superb songs,vocals,sound & production and especially "cry to me ","never look back' and "someone turn the light on' could be big hits!the rest of the band are very capable musos and overall an essential release for hard rockers

From: dany69 Date: August 16, 2019 at 19:34
No Prob Bro, !!!! But you know me now, ))))) good to see you here,,,, Danny !!!!

From: petermexico13 Date: August 17, 2019 at 16:01
MMMMHHH!!! You are the same guy! Danny Waysted or Dany69!! Great to see you here too, Thanks Danny for all the great music you share with us. This is great record, love her work with Headpins and I think this is an evolution from Head Over Heels 1985 to this álbum in 1991. Fantastic Singer and a true legend in Canada.
