Entrega mucho mejor que takin' it.... Sin ser una maravilla,contiene temazos como "All or nothing" y "Closer to heaven".Olvidaos de sus 2 primeros trabajos.

From: Date: January 2, 2003 at 21:07
entrega entrega dude!

Tracks No.2 and 4 are worth buying this album.

From: Peter-Poland Date: April 8, 2003 at 19:50
Few years after relasing so geniues album as debut album, Fm made something really really great again. This cd is one of my favourite from their discography.Every simple track brings something different to description of ''AOR''.Some catchy , rock numbers like ''play dirty'' or ''breath fire'' and amazing ballad, in my opinon best ballad ever made by any aor musisiac or band called ''closer to heaven'', words can't express , you have to listen it, if you haven't made it so far

From: Nae Neck Date: May 24, 2003 at 15:12
Got to agree with Peter above Closer To Heaven is a Classic in its self Steve's vocals on this will take you down the great Mississippi this has the deep bluesy south written all over it,this will truly show the vocal reach of Steve Overland, this guy will make the most hardened of us take a few gulps of air just so we don't crack under his vocal passion, the rest of the album is a stand out 10/10.

From: Desslar Date: May 25, 2003 at 7:15
Pretty good AOR with just enough rock. A bit like Bad Company.

From: cruise Date: September 14, 2003 at 17:10
This is FM's best album (just). Fabulous in every department this is the album for anyone who hasn't heard them and yearns for top quality hard rock. 9.5/10

From: Scandi Date: October 4, 2003 at 16:52
From my point o` view the best album of FM. I have to agree with lots of you guys who recommend "Closer to heaven", it's the greatest song here on alongside with "Breathe fire" and "All or nothing". You may also buy THE BEST OF or LONG TIME NO SEE albums to get these songs. ROCK ON

From: Gabi Date: January 19, 2004 at 17:32
No lo entiendo. Fue la marcha de Chris Overland la que produjo el cambio de sonido FM? Fue los años 80? Tenian todo para editar otras obras maestras del género...Al final sólo fueron las dos primeras. Una pena...En fin, disco correcto.All or Nothing. Bestial!!! Una pena...

From: Gabi Date: January 19, 2004 at 17:33
Quería decir los años 90!!!

From: Great Dane Date: April 13, 2004 at 11:05
Good cd. I can highly recomend it. Does anyone have any information on a Dutch band called Wild Ride.???????????????

From: Date: November 28, 2004 at 22:39
"Remember how, how good you used to make me feel, i look back now, i cant believe its real..." Might be the greatest beginning to a 2nd verse there has ever been.

From: Geoff Date: February 16, 2005 at 19:55
This was slightly more on track. Absolutely awesome sound, and some great tracks here. 'Breathe fire' is a cool hard rocker, and 'All or nothing' and 'Ain't too proud' are awesome hard rockers. Overall, the songs are not all great but the band sound musically at the top of their game and this really isn't a bad disc at all. Good stuff.

From: Swriter Date: February 19, 2005 at 19:56
ok, being from the states, this was the first FM I heard last year and wowowowowowow, this is a great one and after this, found out about the first two classics we never heard in the states!!!!!! why not, this band was amazing. This is a class release from FM and Steve Overland is a genius!!! The Ladder was a great one and hopes that the full band does a new one soon!!!

From: Dave Date: February 20, 2005 at 17:16
Swriter, I will also recommend to you "No Electricity Required".I class that as a great album !!!!!!!

From: Lovedrive Date: January 6, 2006 at 7:10
Es un muy buen disco y el mejor de FM.. después de Indiscreet y Tough it out, por supuesto! y si no me crees escucha PLAY DIRTY y me cuentas :P

From: HaremScarem Date: February 27, 2006 at 8:07
Siendo FM, este no puede ser un mal disco. Para mi gusto destacan Blood and Gasoline, All or Nothing y Closer to Heaven! Grandes temas. Disco 8,5/10

From: juan carlos Date: November 3, 2007 at 2:23
Muy buena producción, buenos temas de HardRock Bluesy pero prefiero a Steve Overland haciendo AOR/HR Melódico. Hay Temazos como esa ya clásica "All or Nothing" o "Closer to Heaven" y "Breathe Fire". Buen disco pero me esperaba mas. 8/10

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: January 7, 2008 at 19:56
Ahh Otro Grandioso disco de FM, aunque claro no a la altura de sus 2 joyas. Aqui se van un poco mas al Hard Blues, pero sin perder la esencia clásica... Grandes temas como "Breathe Fire", la emocionante "Blood And Gasoline" y sobre todo ese baladon "Closer To Heaven" nos confirman la calidad vocal y compositiva de el genial Steve Overland.

From: hair metal again Date: August 7, 2009 at 3:02
another very good release by fm with a hard rock anthem like "all or nothing".i mean not every band is capable of such beauty!this album has the fm sound but also has a more classic hard rock approach from the ol bad company sound till the hair sound of that era.i think that this was amistake and that they should have stuck to the "tough it out " direction.there is the real fm talent and they were magnificent.overall avery good album though essential for anyone

From: MysticHealer Date: March 11, 2013 at 17:00
The last rspectable FM album. Some great moments but some poor ones too. After this release you don't need to bother, not even with the reformed band either. When i look back on this band i think of where they maybe went wrong and one thing always springs to mind, Chris Overland. Without his input the band went on a downward spiral and NEVER recovered. A crying shame.

From: SinnerAlbion Date: February 7, 2014 at 11:25
One of the best hard rock albums of all time. Classy and pure perfection.

From: 123charpenay Date: February 6, 2017 at 12:46
i discover this jewel only today.better late than never.this is the best fm s record after of course the untouchable"tough it out".this is the more hard and the more oriented guitar realise of their discography.i m not fan of the two bluesy ballads track 4 and 12.but the others what pleasure to listen them.all these songs are very catchy and will hooked you s irresistible.i can add that the production is very great and steve overland sing like a god.the ice on the cake is that the japan import have three bonus studio track 13"chinese whispers" excellent, and two live (with a good sound).track 14 is great and track 15 is a filler.this cd is essential for all fm s fans and essential in all serious melodic hard rock s collection.

From: 123charpenay Date: June 14, 2018 at 13:30
i can add that this jewel have a delicious southern influence.
