From: suzyQ Date: October 15, 2004 at 20:11

From: GlamFann Date: November 9, 2004 at 16:18
What does it sound like???

From: metalhead Date: November 16, 2004 at 3:26
hello this is bob from wisconsin i have this cd i looked sundaynight for 3 hours threw 30000 cds i finally found it i listenend to it its ok to me its like a touch of a lighter side of bonfire thats my opionion its not worth 200.00 i paid 8.00 for a burned copy i had it for almost a year already thanks bob metalhead@centurytel.net

From: sara-slayer Date: November 29, 2004 at 17:03
I saw them on tour with white lion in early 90's . they rule live!!!

From: mike Date: January 21, 2005 at 11:06
It`s a very good US Indie release. I agree with metalhead, they sound like a lighter version of bonfire or simular to last cry.They also brought out the one track single Merry Christmas to the World plus acousic version fom 1993. I think, that`s their best song ever. If you have the chance to get them,then grab them!

This band came from right here in my hometown of Utica, NY. Bob Aquaviva is a legend on the local music scene here. Owns His own studio and produced many albums and singles for many local bands. He was the main songwriter on this release. If you ever see any CDs, cassettes or albums by a band named Mere Mortals, get 'em! That was Bob's band before this and in my humble opinion, they were a better band. Look for an album with a song called 'Laura Said'. That is a great song.

From: kelly Date: March 11, 2005 at 22:19
jfox66 , sorry - you have it all wrong. tony touris wrote every word and note of music on the big plans album and all other touris songs. but your rite, mere mortals is also a great band fron cny...

From: jfox66 Date: March 12, 2005 at 12:07
Sorry about the misinformation about the songwriting but, I don't have it all wrong. Bob Aquaviva is a legend here. Before Mere Mortals, He was in Luftwaffe and they ruled the local hard rock scene here in the early '80s, which was the heyday of music in the Utica area. It's a very sad scene now. Back then, there were at least 30 bands performing in this area, now... ? Rock has been replaced by Rap and Easy Listening in this area.

From: jfox66 Date: March 12, 2005 at 12:15
BUT! That is about to change! Bob Aquaviva is coming back with a new band along with Ian from Sweet Cheetah (remember them, Kelly). The name of this new beast is 33 HURTZ and they'll be hitting the local scene toward the end of April. Just spoke to Bob this morning and the band will be performing tunes from both the Luftwaffe and Mere Mortals era. Watch for this 'cuz ROCK N' ROLL's Coming back to the Utica area in a big way! I personally can't wait and plan to be at the first show.

just got this one.can't say i hear any bonfire.but i'd say more on the bon jovi side.or jonny lima.sounds ok.one of the better indies around imo.

From: the game Date: April 6, 2005 at 19:05
I found Touris to be an average AOR/Rock band. The songs are a little on the light side for my taste with some wonderful guitar playing. My fave songs are Tonight, Sweet home, All For One, Dreams, and Couldn't Love You More. I bought mine for $10.00 but can't see someone or anyone paying more than $30.00 for this one. If you like Journey, Survivor, Storm, Two Fires then this is up your alley. I rate this cd 6/10.

From: stryper Date: July 7, 2005 at 5:14
must say.can't see any journey survivor or the storm here.as all these bands are gods in this music.and although i like this cd.they're no way near as good.early bon jovi is what you get here.plain and simple.

From: Danielledoubleplay Date: August 26, 2005 at 0:25
Let's not forget that Touris also tore up Watertown, NY in the 90's! Watertown hasn't seen a band like this since! Hope they're all are doing well! The memories and the MUSIC are priceless.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: January 26, 2006 at 16:39
Average AOR/Melodic Rock album, maldita sea otro disco de precio elevado y que no da la talla, que pasa porque la mayoria de discos caros no convencen(hay rarezas a precios asequibles que son otra cosa), entonces un disco como el Isolation de Toto deberia valer 1 millon de dolares me pregunto??? y como dice aortrade como es posible comparar a esos grandes grupos con este *Dreams* quiza el corte que de cara el resto bluf, quienes son los salvajes que an puesto tanta puntuacion para mi 5/10 y eso

From: Heavy.AOR Date: June 22, 2006 at 11:26
NORMAL 5/10. No Emotion on this cd!!!One Line bad voc. bad choruses.

From: masterang Date: July 30, 2007 at 20:13
This cd Rocks! Joe Fanelli still does sound for most of the major gigs around here, he's a great guy. I used to hang out with this group, back in 1991-92. And I agree, they were a lot like Journey. Good ballads. Too bad they don't play anymore.

From: scar Date: March 31, 2008 at 21:45
Hey.....what about 'Fallin Angel'...that was the band in the area of the 90's......no doubt...yo!

From: hernanHRM/AOR Date: December 21, 2008 at 21:18
Tonight, Big Plans 2 jewels of this interesting album of AOR/Melodic Rock 70/100Recommended

From: rick kerch vzla Date: November 1, 2010 at 14:31
Predictable album,nothing really outstanding and that's obviously because the singer is kinda weak,it doesn't inject the edge needed 4 the songs but wait!...is not completely a waste,the album has some moments..."Touch 'N Love" is a nice ballad and the AORish "I'm Sorry" are good ones..then another possible goodies or may i say acceptable songs are "Tonight","Sweet Home","Big Plans"Our Hearts" & "Don't Grow Up Too Fast"....83/100

From: z4roxx Date: November 1, 2010 at 14:34
I remember this album as a big piece of....nothing(I don't want to be vulgar).One of the worst production ever heard,the singer was a big zero.I respect rick kerch vzla comment,maybe I should hear it again...??

From: rick kerch vzla Date: November 1, 2010 at 16:03
ummmmm....honestly z4roxx...i think you might enjoy listening to another band...this one is a one album spinning and that's all...not really worth to listen twice...cheers mate!!!

From: z4roxx Date: November 2, 2010 at 15:49
rick kerch vzla,I am pretty sure to have confused this one with other rubbish indies.I am agree with you,the album is not so bad."Tonight" is very good energic ballad.BTW the production is more than mediocre.You have good ears mate!

From: z4roxx Date: November 2, 2010 at 15:55
It's so true I did listen to another disc,not this one.I think I'd appreciate to find it original....
