this is a good album,worth the price alone to hear tattoo needle-one of the best fm songs ever!

From: Danny Date: September 8, 2001 at 16:26
Sin duda el mejor album de la ultima epoca.Nada que ver con sus dos primeros discos(nunca volveran a serlo),es como si fueran otro grupo pero aun asi es una gozada de disco y el mas maduro que han hecho.Para paladares exquisitos.

From: Gar Date: January 14, 2003 at 21:00
"Get Ready" is a remake of the Temptations song. FM changed the pace a bit and added their bluesy flavor to it. Pretty good cd overall. Songs are all well written, but the only really memorable one is the aforementioned "Tattoo Needle" which is the highlight of the album. Its hard not to like this album, but it won't blow your mind either.

FM has always played blues based AOR but this is the most bluesy of the releases. Still has all the typical class and quality expected and some superb songs. One of there best. 8.5/10

From: Axe Machine Date: December 17, 2004 at 14:04
Suprised by all the positive comments as upon listening to this album you wouldnt believe that the same band had produced the gems of Indiscrett and Tough it Out. Apart from the title track and the artwork I am afraid to say as a massive FM fan, that this album is just not up to the exceptionally high standards which they set themselves. 4/10

From: Dave Date: December 18, 2004 at 17:59
Totally agree with you Axe Machine on this one. Sister is a great track and a couple of others are okay but it still falls a bit short compared to their other gems. 6/10

From: Geoff Date: February 16, 2005 at 20:01
Incredibly weak and defeated sound here, and to be honest it was sad to see. Play this alongside 'Aphrodiesiac' (For musical excellence) and just weep at how the sound and quality of music differs. The songs here aren't all bad, but a lot are. It's just the sound of the band that is so weak and lacking any balls. Very unfortunate album by a great band.

From: Wachen Date: April 1, 2005 at 9:02
Bluesy rock. If this record was done by another group I would have understood but FM?? Is this the same group that did "Indiscreet" and "Tough it out"? Well, you could see the direction taken already on "Takin' it to the streets".. If it weren't for the golden lungs of Steve Overland, this record would be plain boring.. 4/10

From: Lovedrive Date: February 14, 2006 at 12:05
Lejos de sus dos primeros discos y Aphrodisiac, aunque hay canciones destacables, como la que da titulo al disco: Dead Man's shoes

From: DANTE Date: July 18, 2006 at 12:43

From: hernanHRM/AOR Date: December 4, 2007 at 16:32
vaya disco algo muy corriente aqui los FM como que perdieron el toque y magia para con el AOR.... y ahora sonando a un melodic rock muy mediocre Vaya desepcion

From: hair metal again Date: October 13, 2009 at 12:58
fm release this when everyone is listening to nirvana and perl jam staff.thank god for fm s existance this is a buesy hard rock release with good songs like "mona","sister","you re the one" and"misery".the guitars are not as strong as they should and there are not as many keyboards as expected.i think that is a unique sound for fm and very interesting release.the "long lost friends" edition contain a bonus track named "stranger kind of love" and it is mindblowing,agreat moment for music.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: April 21, 2012 at 19:57
Not my cup of coffee shamely...not a bad album though...just...different IMO..."Tatto Needle" is by far the best cut of the album and perhaps along with "Misery" the 2 songs that has that " FM touch"...."Get Ready"(a good The Temptations cover,they did it with Marvin Gaye's song "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" in the past),"Sister" & "You're The One"(nice mid tempo) are also goodies...nothing else to add...84/100

From: SinnerAlbion Date: February 7, 2014 at 11:26
One of the best rock albums ever.

From: blackkblade5 Date: August 9, 2014 at 10:47
well...lot bad comments about this album,why????back in 1995 all hard/heavy were deleted out of the face of the earth by a nuclear bomb called grunge...ok this is not the usual FM sound,more of bluesy free/bad company affair but is a fine piece of rock with my advice to the ones that dont like this album is go and buy some nirvana cd or a nu-metal"not nu anymore"crap and let good music roll....salute
