Excellent compilation of old and new tracks, some given the Denander treatment, giving them that extra edge the original versions lacked.Westcoast AOR is the name of the game here, so if that isn't your cup of tea, then give this a wide berth. If it is your thang, then there is plenty here to get excited about, especially the TD tracks like 'Desperate Dreams'.

An excellent A.O.R./Westcoast album given the Denander stamp of authority,as previously written.How much can I say without being taken out of bloody context or being accused of being vitriolic....

pero q maravilla d Proyecto se ha marcado el Frederiko!!! La ostia d Buenass Cabciones, Geniales Musicos, Produccion... Señores parece q estemos en los xoxenta!! Never Gonna Let Her Go y Don’t Let Her Go mis favoritas, q por cierto haber si alguien me sabria decir por q se repiten el los 4 discos d esta pedazo d banda???????????? eso si con diferentes vocalistas... WEST COAST del bueno d verdad!!! MUy pero q muy recomendado!!

From: TIM (2) Date: April 21, 2005 at 6:59
Westcoast fans will shoot me for this, but I've never liked this artist one bit. Don't get me wrong,I love my Chicago, King of Hearts, LA Cowboys, Tim Feehan, Planet 3, Player, Think Out Loud, Airplay, Keven Jordan, David Foster, Jay Graydon, Joseph Williams, Toto, Marc Jordan, Mr.Mister, Bridge 2 Far, David Roberts, Parber & Kerstein, Glass Tiger, Radioactive etc as much as the next man, but this just washes over me and is immediately fogotten. It just lacks bigger hooks in the songs IMO. 5/10.

No puedo con este disco!! La única canción que se salva es la que canta Overland..el resto me parece infumable..

From: HaremScarem Date: April 6, 2006 at 21:39
Este grupo, al principio no me entraba mucho, pero cuanto más lo escucho más me gusta, composiciones exquisitas y genialmente elaboradas y un sonido de soft AOR elegante y delicioso. Este disco, para mí el mejor de todos, y no sólo porque cante Overland (que ya es una gozada). Es una verdadera joya para degustar con calma. Le seguiría L.A. Reflection. Y L.A. Dreaming, que aquí no está puesto, sólo por "Malibu escapade" merece la pena: auténtico temazo. "Nothing but the best": 8,75/10

From: Photochromic Steve Date: January 31, 2010 at 14:28
AOR have been one of my best recent finds. This is a very good compilation - and as Jez says above, the tracks which have been Tommified give an extra edge to songs that were already pretty good. Is there a project anywhere in AOR-land that Tommy Denander isn't involved with?!

From: mikey2k Date: April 29, 2011 at 4:05
I recently bought this thinking it would rock but in my opinion it did not rock. This is something I would expect to hear in a hotel lobby and for it be labeled AOR (genre that is, not the name of the group/band/artist) is misleading because this is NOT music of the AOR genre. It was too pop/jazz/soul sounding. I'm not impressed. I'm a little surprised that Denander has worked with this guy on such lite whimsical tracks. I suppose I'll put my copy on ebay or amazon for sale, I read some of the reviews for this particular AOR release and I read some reviews for AOR's prior and subsequent albums and a few comments read "you'll either love AOR or hate AOR"! I guess I'm one of the odd ones out because I really do not love what I'm hearing. Sorry, not my cup of tea.
