Good Heavens...is there ANYTHING this man can't do?? From the melodic rocking of Jaded Heart, the hard rock of Rain, to the harder BISS, now this wonderful solo release!!! Granted, I love him best with Jaded Heart.....but damn....this is really good too!! This release is definitely on his softer side, with even a twinge of country thrown in. IMO....this man can do it ALL....and do it very WELL, at that!!!

From: Geoff Date: June 14, 2004 at 20:41
The opening track is brilliant, I love 'The one I hate' too, and inbetween there are some great softer moments. Yes, I prefer Jaded Heart but this is a great solo album and highly recommended to all fans.

From: TIM (2) Date: July 2, 2004 at 12:49
A pretty laid-back and dreary solo effort from the otherwise flawless vocalist. Opener "Can't Stop Missing You" is excellent, but almost none of the other tracks offer anything at all. This is reflected by the fact that you can pick this up for next-to-nothing from most of the Internet stores. 3/10.

From: jessica96fish Date: October 15, 2004 at 4:12
good album.even if it is a bit laid back.some very catchy songs on this one.

From: Aussie Dave Date: March 10, 2005 at 2:08
Agree with everyone else here. Prefer MB to be rocking out, but this is pretty cool to throw on late at night to wind down. The first few tracks are very good, as well as the song The One I Hate. If you like the softer songs Jaded Heart have released, then this is the album for you. Good acoustic rock! 7.5/10....

From: metalmaniac777 Date: September 25, 2005 at 19:04
Is there a law somewhere that whenever lead vocalists for hard rock bands release solo albums, they must take the mellow, laid-back approach? As we all know from his days with Jaded Heart, Michael Bormann's voice is magnificent, but this solo effort is so dull, you'll think you're listening to a different singer named Michael, one with the last name Bolton. There are a few OK songs, but the majority of the CD is instantly forgettable. Stick with Jaded Heart if you don't want to be bored, man.

No es malo ni aburrido a mi entender. No es Jaded Heart pero tampoco es que este mal. Muy duros son algunos con sus críticas, me parece. Es cierto que la primera cancion es buenísima pero tambien hay muy buenas en este buen album. Mas paciencia y ha escucharlo calmado y si es posible cuando estes con ganas de relajarte. No me parece nada mal este album. 8/10

From: ninjapeter Date: December 23, 2006 at 7:46
This is good but very mild. It's a little on the folk side and does not rock much but if you like the guys voice you will love this. I like everything this guy has ever done like Jaded Heart, Rain and Biss. Of course I have all the albums, lol. Personally I like Jaded Heart best because he seems to fit in that band better.

From: Metalmusicman Date: December 29, 2006 at 21:04
No real surprises here. Another very good album from a brilliant artist. This one is however just a little more laid back overall then most of Bormann's work in Jaded Heart or even Rain. Don't get me wrong it has some rockin' songs, but overall, very mellow. Still a very good album and for fans of Bormann, very recomended! I just have one question. If all your side projects and solo discs (praticulary the ones you write for) sound basiclly like your band, why not just work on your band?

From: Metalmusicman Date: December 29, 2006 at 21:14
The answer is this. An artist like Michael never stops writing, so he want those songs to see the light of day. The problem is, that at times the rest of the band wants a break when he wants to work. So he does something on the side. Now the side project or projects take on a life of their own and start taking up his time when his band does want to work. Now he's fucked! In the end the original band ends up with animosity, when it was their break that started it all.

From: Metalmusicman Date: December 29, 2006 at 21:16
Sorry, It was a retorical question.

From: hair metal again Date: February 25, 2011 at 1:37
great release by michael with many good melodic tunes.the opener "cant stop missing you " is an outstanding song and makes this one worth buying.there are plenty good moments too like " best is yet to come","don t lie to me" and "children of the earth".there aren t many rockers here but thats ok cause the songwriting is in high level.
