Una cagada total de disco.No se que pensaron FM antes de sacar este disco.Se salvan:"Only the strong will survive" y "crack alley".

From: Baris Date: September 8, 2002 at 1:49
Lovely album, catchy melodies. "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" is a super cover and has an old man blues guitar intro in its video. Go through this record.

From: Mark Jevons Date: January 25, 2003 at 11:05
Excellent Album just what to expect from FM

From: john Peters Date: January 25, 2003 at 11:07
Hard Rocking !

From: Peter-Poland. Date: April 8, 2003 at 19:41
i love FM, and this album i worth every price just like any other. My fav. song from this cd i definetaly ''crack alley'', wounderfull mid-tempo ballad, with amazing vocals and lyrics. Highly recommended

From: Nae Neck Date: May 24, 2003 at 15:02
Listen to Only The Strong Survive, and you have passion in the voice Steve Overland that he just takes you on journey of the range of his vocal reach, you will wonder how the hell these guys never got the acclaim they truly deserve this is an album that will take you to a place where Mister Overland is the star guest you will not be dissapointed,may the gods of rock bless the earth you stand on and air you all breath.

From: Si Date: June 7, 2003 at 10:17
This was their come back album and why the hell it did not get the support it needed I will never know, Dangerous Ground, Grapevine, true masterpieces!

From: phoenix Date: June 7, 2003 at 16:18
non ai livelli del suo predecessore tough it out ma in ogni caso è un valido disco.insomma in poche parole merita l'acquisto,fosse solo per la splendida crack alley.

From: Gabi Date: August 7, 2003 at 14:21
FM dejan de ser unos dioses para ser unos genios.FM se adelantó a lo que le pasarian a multitud de grupos en los 80; la rocdurificación de su sonido. Con el tiempo he llegado a considerarlo un buen cd de los FM. El medio-tiempo "Crack Alley" suena a FM de sus dos primeras entregas.

From: Gabi Date: August 7, 2003 at 14:22
Quería decir en los "lo que le pasarian a multitud de grupos en los 90". Sorry

From: caluche Date: November 7, 2003 at 17:43
vaya patata de disco increíble lo vajo que ha podio caer un poco más y ven al demoñio

From: robert Date: November 27, 2003 at 20:00
Buen disco pero muy muy lejos d sus 2 primeras obras maestras!! Me encanta CRACK ALLEY!!

From: TIM (2) Date: June 28, 2004 at 7:19
Slightly more hard-rockin' approach, but still a quality album this. (Abbreviated as: "T.I.T.T.S") Worth buying alone for the superb cover of "Heard It Through the Grapevine"...

From: Geoff Date: February 16, 2005 at 19:52
The FM story is a sad one because many consider the debut to be a classic and I consider 'Tough it out' to be a classic, but after that I think most agree that they faltered and fell short of their obvious potential, though always having that potential to be great again. This is average hard rock, even though 'Crack alley' is a great song - awesome guitar sound. This really isn't that bad but it's hard to follow up a disc like 'Tough it out' with something this average.

From: Swriter Date: March 27, 2005 at 0:06
FM , what a band, lots of great albums, Streets is my 4th fav behind Indiscreet, Tough it out, and Aprodisiac. This is a good one and in my eyes the end of the top 4 releases from FM. This is a strong one with a few fillers, the albums after this are hit and miss except for Aprodisiac which is amazing. Having all from FM they all have class written all over them, they r all good, no complaints about anything this band puts out, they r all a special gift to the world of music!!!!

From: swriter Date: September 2, 2005 at 0:11
I said it before, I like this one indeed, just to add, that this one and Dead Man are coming out in a 2 pack package that will be out in a few weeks!!! kinda like they did with Long Time, Aphrodisia and live. all great!!!! i think they also should of done a pasckage on Indiscreet, Tough and Streets, that would be a great 3 cd set!!!!!

From: Lovedrive Date: January 6, 2006 at 7:12
No me convence. Muy por debajo de sus primeros discos.. prefiero el siguiente "Aphrodisiac"

From: HaremScarem Date: February 19, 2006 at 10:49
En este disco se sigue notando la calidad de estos musicos, pero el sonido es más rockero y no tan AOR, con composiciones menos originales e impactantes. Está bien el disco, especialmente por el temazo de "Crack Alley", como ya se ha dicho. También están bien "I Heard It Through the Grapevine", "Only the Strong Survive" o "The trill of it all". 8/10

From: DanDare Date: September 14, 2008 at 15:47
Frankly I found this one to be a complete let down after the first two magnificent releases. I think that the cover of 'I Heard It Through the Grapevine' is poor and needless. What's the point of it? I'm sure I don't know. The rest of the album is weak and sounds like it was banged out in a hurry. Yuk! 40/100

From: rick kerch vzla Date: November 22, 2008 at 12:01
They went harder here,loosing their essence of AOR and perhaps laying down on a song which was a cover (Marvin Gaye's I Heard It Through A Grapevine),the only "hit" actually.I cannot say that this album is completely bad and maybe we can blame that down the hill sound with the change of the guitar player (no more Overland brother on my side hand!!!)Mr Andy Barnett that ironically he's still playing with Steve,Merv and Pete in the "new" version of FM (watched some videos in youtube-FireFest 2008-).I'll give this one an 80/100

From: hair metal again Date: October 12, 2009 at 2:48
ok this isnt so good as the 2 first releases but fm still is one of the best hard rock bands of all time.there is now a more hard rock approach with less keyboards and more blues in their music.the result is good but there is no magic in it as in the previous ones.feel good music,very enjoyable ,well performed but not so many catchy fav is of course "crack alley" and "only the strong survive".i always like f m

From: CMGio Date: April 15, 2010 at 18:44
Certainly not bad, but a let down after "Indiscreet" and "Tough it Out."

From: 123charpenay Date: October 28, 2011 at 10:53
indiscreet was a very light aor record.tough it out was a masterpiece ,a jewel of melodic rock.what s happen about takin to the steets.surprise, they are losing.they plays a little funky;a lot of bluesy or southern influence.some songs could be play by masters like doc holliday or lynyrd skynyrd.they play so light aor and great hard rock.this album have no style it is a mix of several influences.a great album but very surprising!!!!!

From: MysticHealer Date: March 11, 2013 at 16:53
The beginning of the end for me regarding this once incredible band. This isn't a bad album it just falls very short of what we had come to expect from the band. Grapevine is crap and a band as talented as FM were should not have been doing covers. Yep this was the beginning of the end and after Aphrodisiac they were completely toast and barely recognisable as the once great FM.
