Very solid AOR/Melodicrock release. There are great AOR songs like, "Who Do I Believe", "Get Up" and "Let It Go" and nice ballads too ("Bride Of Restoration"). Mark Pogue has a strong voice and the production is clean, this makes the album well worth to have in your collection.

From: Mary Date: December 1, 2004 at 21:25
From beginning to end, this album holds your attention and makes you think...edgy lyrics and fast-finger-flying guitar solos as well as tender words to woo you... Mark Pogue's clear and powerful voice pours out that which God poured in. Help for past hurts and hope for the future is the main message, as is the personal testimony of this amazing artist. Although out of print, you can still find it occasionally on online auction sites - worth tracking down to put in your rock collection!

Another of those little heard about, but well worth tracking down releases. Dino & John Elefante are in the production seat on this and as with most things they are involved with in the CCM market or otherwise (The Brave, Barren Cross etc) you know you will be getting a quality album. This is a straight down the line Christian AOR album with some great songs onboard (Who Do I Believe, Get Up, Bride Of Restoration, Let It Go),Immaculate production, great band, Great vocal - Great album!!!

Yeah Very Good AOR/Melodic Rock album, este disco si que se merece esa puntuacion porque es un buenisimo album lleno de temas con gusto y ese sabor que hace que lo disfrutes Who Do I Believe, Let It Go, Get Up mis 3 cortes favoritos 3 temazos del mejor AOR/Rock Melodico ya sabeis de lo que hablo, un disco dificil pero si lo consigues ni lo dudes te gustara, Rock Cristiano del bueno 8.5/10 saludos del Fenix.

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 2 Date: October 19, 2007 at 6:35
No esperaba encontrarte por aqui Rafo pero bueno ya que estás pues eso decir que estoy completamente de acuerdo en los mejores temas (añadiria las dos baladas). Disco de la factoria Pakaderm editado a principios de los 90 con Juanito y Aladino a los controles era garantia de calidad fija, este anda ahi, lástima de 3 feuchos temas ahi seguidos a mitad de disco pues el resto se mueve en unos niveles bastante sobrados, la onda?? pues tipo Brett Walker, Kenny Marks, Rick Price... RECOMENDADO.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: October 19, 2007 at 9:57
Por supuesto mi querido CHAMPIONS porque donde estan metidos los señores paquidermos siempre hay calidad son otros de los genios en esta movida que tanto amamos, saludos CAMPEON.

This is a real winner. One of my favorite Melodic Rock/AOR Christian Albums!. Great guitars, with very inspired solos, and what about the keyboards? Great songs and a very solid Voice of Mark Pogue, who sounds a lot like Mark Free for me, of course keeping the distances away. The style is kind of a mix of MARK FREE, ANGELICA, BRETT WALKER and RICK PRICE, Between Melodic Rock and AOR. Powerful songs like "Who Do You Believe", "I´ll Never Love This Way Again" and "Get Up" just take away my breath!

From: shoemaker Date: February 9, 2008 at 7:26
Powerful songs???????????????? This is so boring!!!!!!! A real loser. Very dissapointing. There are a lot better christian rock/aor bands: IDLE CURE, XALT, DAVID ZAFFIRO..

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: April 11, 2008 at 20:29
Hi shoemaker... Well it´s a matter of taste. I think this is a great album and i like it very specially... regards from Mexico

From: SisterSingleheart Date: April 24, 2008 at 1:48
Yes, definitely a spiritually powerful album... and musically powerful as well. Not dependent on big hair and pleather. I know Mark and his wife personally and although a very talented man, Mark is humble almost to a fault. The messages contained in the music are meant to open a person's heart and mind to the voice of God... while rocking your socks off at the same time. What could be better?? His voice reminds me of a mix between Richard Marx and Bryan Adams... only with more edge and range. Mark's guitar playing on this album is spot-on and passionate, and it's even better live. The Elefante's were fairly notorious for their "perfect" productions (although sometimes I wish they would have kept it a little simpler) and this album was treated no differently than their better known artists, to their credit. ALL that said - I've heard the original demo... with omitted songs... and IT was better. Talk about ROCK. Geez, it was REALLY good. Wish you could hear it yourselves.

good CD 79/100 Late 80's CHRISTIAN AOR Produced by Brothers john & dino ELEFANTE in their usual very own GREAT way ! under their wings any traditionnal ROCK songs became something more special ! MARK POGUE and his band are good and the album it's even better ! A blend of IDLE CURE/THE BRAVE/NOVELLA/CRYSTAVOX/FIGHTER/LIAISON worship PARKADERM forever !!!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: October 30, 2010 at 20:44
Agree with all the excellent comments above! ..what happened shoemaker???..well is a matter of taste and i respect that..."Who Do I Believe" strong cut to start the album with,"Get Up" AOR supremo,"Love Is Just A Prayer Away" nice ballad,"Holy Man" rocks good,"It's Never Too Late" highlight,"Let It Go" a blasting song with a nice chorus & "Family Man" excellently closes the show...an amazing release with the Elefante brothers involved (Kansas fame)...CCM for the masses!!!.95/100

From: metalmaniac777 Date: February 9, 2011 at 11:14
Mark my words, if you enjoy slickly-produced (by John & Dino Elefante) Christian AOR/melodic rock, you'll want this relatively obscure piece in your collection. Doesn't rock hard enough for my personal tastes, but AOR fans should be bouncing off the walls with happiness when they hear this. Sort of like a Christian alternative to artists like Richard Marx or Bryan Adamds, guys who fortify their sound with a rock edge without ever crossing into full-blown hard rock territory. Let's face it, there's a lot of dismal CCM AOR out there...this album may very well restore your faith in the genre.

excellent release by Mark Pogue and his gang undre the guidance of Pakaderm records and the Elefante bros!all the songs are remeakable and catchy and the production clear and commercial!"get up","it s never too late" and "love is just a prayer away" are sensational songs and i suggest everybody to find this fine piece of commercial hard rock!
