the first 3 songs are amazinly good, my favorite song is the mid tempo tune 'welcome to the world'. great album

From: 80sMetal1 Date: May 29, 2004 at 1:29
Take Me Back is one awesome song and Love Somebody is pretty good too.

From: DANTE Date: June 28, 2004 at 7:18
Muy buen trabajo el de estos australianos, junto a su 2º disco "Touch" lo mejor que han grabado, su 3º "Love vs. Money" baja un tanto la calidad pero dentro de unos margenes mas que aceptables. Este para mi es su mejor trabajo, rock melodico radiable, sonido ochentero, buena producción y muy buenas composiciones como "Take me Back", "Love Somebody","Welcome to the World" por nombrar algunas. No olvidaros de su 2º trabajo "touch" si os gustó este.

From: Rycheage Date: October 5, 2004 at 22:05
Very hi-tech, a la Eight Seconds, yet not as classy. More like an AOR-sounding Simple Minds or Depeche Mode. Slick production with pounding drums and airy guitars make this album sound bigger than it is. Don't get me wrong, this is good and deserves to be heard. "Take Me Back" and "Welcome To The World" are excellent stabs at hi-tech AOR.

From: Geoff Date: December 28, 2004 at 3:46
This is more pop sort of stuff, like INXS or something rather than melodic rock but I will not question it's worth here because 'Take me back' is simply one of the ebst songs I have ever heard in my entire life. A chilling song that gets me everytime and I cannot speak high enough of. 'No lies' is very cool too. I just burnt those two tracks and got rid of the rest of the CD.

Good AOR album, claro que si un Buen album de AOR o Hi-Tech AOR para los mas entendidos, ni siquiera lo dudes este lo tienes que tener de todas maneras, en algunos temas suenan algo a Simple Minds o INXS, tremendos cortes como Take Me Back, No Lies, It's Time(mis favoritos), Love Somebody, Burning Feeling hacen un gran album, solo el tener los 3 mencionados ya paga el album, good adquisicion a tu coleccion de AOR. mientras mas te adentras te das cuenta que menos sabes. Recomendado.

From: kipvanpearcy Date: April 9, 2006 at 9:40
Good CD, very melodic. I agree with Geoff, sounds a bit like INXS.

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: April 25, 2008 at 18:40
This is an excellent Hi Tech AOR album!. This band´s music goes in the sound direction of groups like WHITE HEAT, SIMPLE MINDS, THE ARROWS and of course INXS. The singer`s voice is very similar to Michael Hutchence(RIP) and this album has a very contagius style, catchy songs and great songs like "Burning Feeling", "No Lies" and the awesome "Take Me Back". You gotta listen it!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: November 15, 2010 at 21:05
Wonderful debut!!!...brilliant release and if you like aussie bands(1927,Icehouse,INXS) then Noiseworks will suit you fine ..."Burning Feeling" is a one,a highlight,"Love Somebody" excellent,"Take Me Back" AORish ,"No Lies"(a hit single) & "Edge Of Darkness" are both also excellent songs,"Little Bit More" rocks,"Only Loving You"(reminded me strongly to Icehouse) & "It's Time" ends the album as a great song with a smoothie yet solid beat,liked it a lot...a good choice!.95/100

From: Wardy Date: May 4, 2013 at 22:43
I dunno but back in 87 I didn't peg this as simply AOR perhaps lead tune BurningFeeling came the closest, subjective of course but this Noiseworks debut managed to break outta that box, instead going for a more PopRock approach. Regardless of labels this was a magnificent release quickly picked up on by the masses and rightly so. The pop shine of NoLies kicked this off only to be improved upon by followup singles such as the stellar TakeMeBack (a song often misunderstood, actually relates to the passing of a good friend "I watched you wave goodbye as you drove away, I didn't realize it would be your last, time with me") & the powerful lyrics & delivery of LoveSomebody & WelcomeToTheWorld. Other highlights are It'sTime & RiverOfTears both soft in sound but big on emotion & conviction thanks to vocal supreme JonStevens, forever securing himself as one of Aus' finest voices! StuFrazer, in fact whole band quality musicians... More pop than sophomore Touch but still an absolute treasure!
