|One of the 2 Nice ''before'' FM Overland brothers albums. IT's not FM, but songs like SOMEWHERE in the night rocks

|In addition to featuring Bad Company's Simon Kirke on drums, this was produced by Mick Ralphs. Really good stuff too. 'Just a Friend' and 'Rock and Roll Dreams' are my favorites, but really all the songs are great. Steve Overland, as always, does an excellent job on vocals. I've had the vinyl of this for years. Does anyone know if its available on cd? It's time to upgrade!

|This, the second release from Wildlife is for me the best one.On this the music is much more AOR oriented,the first 'Burning' was more straight rock without so much keyboards.My favourite singer of all time Steve Overland sings as always great. Songs like 'Somewhere In The Night' and 'One Last Chance' is just pure AOR heaven!It's not that good as the two first FM records, but well worth owning.

|Gar, this album is unavailable on cd

|If you can imagine an earthy version of FM crossed with Bad Company's AOR material, then you'd be halfway there. An unusual coupling, but not surprising considering who's involved.

|A classic on itīs own. Very melodic and a hint of what may come with FM. Highlights 'Somewhere In The Night' does anybody have the video? and 'Just A Friend' among other classy tunes. I+tīs about time we have this jewel on CD

|To not have this released on cd for all to enjoy should be considered a crime.

|a great album with the magic voice of steve 'Bolton' Overland !!! Actually we can consider this album as the construction of FM . In the line of 'indiscret' : Execellent!!!!! 8/10

|This must have came out on CD. Surely no record company is stupid enough to have overlooked it!! Brilliant songs, laid out well, and a forerunner to FM. What more do you need to know?

|Got it on a cdr superb thats all to say about it.

|Yep, this is a classic AOR album and as good as anything that FM produced afterwards! If not better. AND YES (JUST LIKE THE DEBUT SOLO FROM GREGG ROLIE) IT IS CRIMINAL THAT THIS WAS NEVER RELEASED ON CD...I only have some crappy D60 cassette for Gods sake! All tracks here are timeless and should not be ignored by any AOR fan. 10/10

|Wildlife's second album (after the very average 'Burning' debut that was released on Chrysalis in '80) & a very welcome first time on CD. This realy is a very good album indeed & one of Steve Overlands best vocally. Not surprisingly, considering the lineup and producer, Wildlife come across as a mix between a less polished FM and a more commercial Bad Co. & you can hear loads of FM influences across this album, due of course to Steve Overlands fantastic voice, which is so unmistakable & Chris Overlands guitar sounds. A very high standard of songs feature aswell, with the up tempo opener 'Somewhere In The Night' with it's stabbing piano fills & great Chris Overland solo, through to the heartfelt ballad 'Charity', the very Bad Co. sounding 'Just A Friend' & excellent AOR of 'Surrender' & 'One Last Chance'. There maybe a couple of more average tunes towards the end & this isn't better than the first 2 FM albums as a whole, but if you haven't heard it, it is essential for all AOR lists.
