There is no doubt to me, Bormann did it with Capture The Moment, His best Solo Album!! Great Melodic HardRock/AOR for sure, Very Very Catchy Songs and great tunes. "Half Way Down"(Difficult to choose but My Fav!!), "Still Haven't Found It", "I Will Hold the Line", "Glory & Pain"(The Price of Loving You part two?), "When Push Comes to Shove", "Donīt Bother", "Love is Magic"(Another Part Two but Great Ballad), "Live Your Life"(Beat It Part Two?) and "Come Take me Higher" are my fave. One of the best albums of this Year. Super-Recommended. 9.3/10

From: YNGWIEVIKING Date: June 10, 2008 at 1:44
VERY GOOD CD 85/100 EURO MELODIC METAL/HARD ROCK His best solo CD so far ! The superb voice is here and the kind of songwriting displayed in JADED HEART "IV" too !like early DEF LEPPARD With some modern AOR influences ! So the fans ,will be satisfied and new comers will be impressed by such a powerful voice , only low point: After 14 songs,in the very same mood,maybe you'll ask for differents tempos but the songs are GREAT and that's really count for me ! BUY

I've heard it so many times but still can't decide what I think of it. Yes, it is his best solo album. No, I don't think it matches his work with Jaded Heart... but it is a really strong album. 'Half way down' is my favourite song but I don't think there's anything awful on here. It's very consistent and my only issue would be that many/most the songs seem to be the same tempo. I'd have liked a few more belting hard rockers or sultry mid-tempo numbers. At the end of the day, this is a very strong album and well worth picking up.

Great Melodic Hard Rock/AOR Half Way Down, Glory & Pain, Live Your Life, For Just a Little While my fav songs.

From: Dorothea Date: August 3, 2008 at 18:36
Genial. Hard Rock consistente y coros agresivos. La voz de Bormann es indiscutiblemente una de las mejores.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: August 23, 2008 at 12:22
Good album,great voice and nice production!!!...'nuff said.90/100

From: shoemaker Date: April 30, 2009 at 5:42
Yes, itīs a good one.

From: Mr Nice Guy Date: May 25, 2009 at 15:24
oh god...i don't have any words to describe how superb the bormann's voice is! sometimes you will hear it like Bon Jovi, CJ Snare (firehouse) or a little bit seems like Def Leppard's singer.. When Bormann sing a ballad songs, i always love that so much...and "GO GOING GONE" is great acoustic ballad this time..The CD are rocks too!! 87/100 my rate

From: Mr Nice Guy Date: May 25, 2009 at 16:07
the most i really love to hear repeated again and again to the Bormann's ballads are : 1. CAROLINE (charade), 2. NEVERENDING LOVE (Letter X), 3. ON THE RISE, WAY BACK HOME, LOVE IS MAGIC (jaded heart), and 4. GO GOING GONE, SORRY IS ALL I CAN SAY (his solo albums) try to listen in! and you'll fly away!hahaha..does anybody add it?

From: hair metal again Date: March 27, 2011 at 6:21
Geoff hit the spot here.very good release."half way down " is the highlight,but we need and some hard rockers to be totally satisfied!overall michael did an excellent job 9/10
