Superb Westcoast release.Highly recommended for the Toto/ Steely Dan fans out there. Goran Edman proves yet again that he is one of the top vocalists out there and is ably backed by a quite superb band. 'The Day The Music Died' has everything a fan of this type of stuff would want and the other nine tracks don't dissapoint. One of the top releases so far this year.

From: ROB GARCIA Date: June 3, 2004 at 17:20
totally agree jez!.superb westcoast album where every single note is perfectly executed and the production is top class.this one will definetely be considered a classic in a very short period of time...what's more!!... i think it's gonna take some beating to knock this one out of the westcoast album of 2004 title.totally recommend this one!!.

From: Rycheage Date: July 18, 2004 at 20:30
Impeccable Westcoast release. There are some phenomenonal songs on tap here. Goran Edman proves beyond the shadow of a doubt his versatility as a vocalist. "The Day The Music Dies" is probably the jewel on an extraordinary CD. It is one of the better AOR songs, Westcoast or otherwise, that I have ever heard. "Did You Really" is a track that Toto fans will just eat up. So smooth and textured that it has to be one of the best releases of 2004.

From: G. Oliveira Date: December 14, 2004 at 9:36
Perfect westcoast release. The songs are great, the musicians are perfect, and Goran Edman is a master!!! Songs like "The Day The Music Died" (one of the best songs of the year), "Did You Really?" (reminds me the great TOTO), "Vanity Fair" (BEE GEES comes to mind), the beautiful "A Deeper Shade Of Love" (this song is amazing!!!), "You" (again, one of the best songs of the year). All I can say is that WHITE ON BLUE is perfect, a piece of heaven in music!!! Masterpiece!!!

From: Swriter Date: February 20, 2005 at 23:36
I am not sure how I feel about the west coast genre, always a Toto type vibe that too me, Toto did much better, this is a great sounding album with good musicians and songs, but for me, does not knock me out, saying that, maybe this genre is not for me, although a great sounding album! I will keep listening

From: TIM (2) Date: May 11, 2005 at 12:40
Picked this up recently and it's a stunning westcoast album, remarkably similar to TOTO in their prime (which was not very often, and some time ago now). It takes about 5 tracks to really get going IMO, but the gorgeous ballad "A Deeper Shade..." is followed by the albums best tracks in "Loving Eyes", "Time" and the brilliant closer "You" (the most AOR track on offer). Very nearly up there with the first HEARTPLAY album, this is top quality. Oh, and Goran Edman sounds okay too. 8.5/10.

From: JF Date: October 17, 2005 at 21:27
Exclente disco, con una produccion y cantante de lujos. Esto es para seguidores de toto, Mr. Mister del Go On y de Street talk(eso si los solos de guitarra no son tan largos como los de este ultimo grupo). Aquellos que no son muy aficionados a trompetas y similares,el cual me incluyo, no teman por que es minimo. Mis favoritas son la 1,5,6,7 y la 10. Si les gusta escuchen tambien Promotion, los pre - Grand Illusion.

From: JF Date: November 15, 2005 at 20:39
Hace poco consegui una copia del disco de Corin & Edman. Es una lastima que nadie todavia lo publique. El trabajo es formidable, es tan bueno como el de Crossfade y el trabajo de Goran es sublime. Tantas proquerias que salen en el mundo discografico y nadie se anime ...., no entiendo. Otro grupo que pueden chequear si les gusta este estilo, es el nuevo de disco de los noruegos LAVA.

Buenos comentarios hay en esta página y me adhiero a ellos sin mas ni mas. Ya todo lo dijeron, solo decir que si eres fan del Westcoast, pues no dudes a conseguir este gran album. Como disco de westcoast esto esta para un 9.5/10. Fácil entra a la categoria de clasico. Atención a los solos de casi todos los temas pues son cortos pero matadores, en el sentido sentimental obvio. Y ese "did you really?" no te recuerda a una cancion de TOTO? Mmmm.. Super Recomendado para los fans de AOR mas soft.

From: JF Date: June 1, 2006 at 20:40
Lei que la version japonesa tiene un bonus pero cuando veo el listado de las canciones son las mismas que la version europea, no entiendo? al menos que sea una cancion escondida como en el primer cd de 21 guns.

From: aorteto Date: November 27, 2006 at 19:49
Great west/coast music, not a classic, but if you like this kind of music( very soft and smooth ), you must to have it. Best songs, IMO, DON`T REALLY MATTER, LOVING EYES, THE DAY THE MUSIC DIED ( when NIRVANA born )and YOU.

From: YIRO SEVENTH Date: June 19, 2007 at 15:49
A mi este disco me paso de noche sinceramente. Calidad, claro que la hay. Coherencia compositiva, también. Pero según mi opinión, los temas no enganchan, no despegan nunca. A mi Goran Edman, sinceramente sólo me gusta con YNGWIE y si acaso con MADISON. En este caso interpretando temas AOR en plan WESTCOAST, pero con poca efectividad... ok, si, guiños a los geniales TOTO en algunos temas, pero por supuesto, sin llegar a la genialidad de éstos

From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 23, 2009 at 21:34
A relaxing album...enjoyable somehow but not essential...the album has 3 good moments "Did You Really?","Thorns Of Life" and "You" and for the rest, as some comments above say, is a Westcoast with some hints of Toto,Think Out Loud and Ten Sharp to mention some bands..."The Day The Music Died" is Toto by the 4 sides!!!....80/100

From: Reverend Mayhem Date: February 2, 2013 at 11:34
So here we have a group of top Swedish musicians sitting around listening to some classic Toto, saying to themselves, "Hey, WE can do that!" And they do. With all the requisite Westcoast AOR soft rock elements marked off the checklist, they end up out-Toto-ing the LA studio masters themselves, and hell if it isn't a quite enjoyable result. Fantastic songwriting coupled with top-notch performances headed by the terrific vocals of Goran Edman. Horns, wicka-wacka jazzy guitars, percussion, R & B harmonies -- it all adds up to a great facsimile of the best smooth rock since Toto, Chicago and Steely Dan dominated the adult radio airwaves. Very nice stuff. 90 / 100
