with this album phil naro has released the highlight of his career(...so far!).this album was mixed & engineered by harry hess so the harem scarem connection is quite obvious especially in the sound although naro are not much of a copycat of the great canadians like say...fiore!?.well what you get for your moneys worth is a good collection of excellent hard rock wich is perfectly delivered and well produced.if you have a good ear for melody and you like catchy h.rock then...you all know the rest

This is well played and solid hard rock but not many songs really appeal to me. Strong and solid, but not overly melodic. One song I love which I do not know from the song names is 'The only friend, the only friend I know'... forget the title but it goes a little like that - killer song, good hard rock CD.

Not good not bad it's back-ground music, that's really all I can say...KEEP ROCKIN ALL!!!

This one sounded to me like a big s**t,now I must admit it contains some very good song and some filler,too.Voice is pretty horrible sometimes and decent in other caseS....8/10???????????????

According to philnaro.com, the musicians involved actually include: Pete Lesperance, Derry Grehan, Jeff Northrup, Billy Sheehan, Darrin Smith, and Steve McKenna, among others. I thank them for playing their booties off on these tracks, because if Phil Naro's pinchy vocals were the best thing about this album I'd give it a heave. Not that he's terrible (au contraire, an "Emmy Award Winning Vocalist," it boasts), but he does require some settling into. That's where Pete & Co. (especially the rhythm sections, which SMOKE) save the day: these tunes are really, really well-played. And some cool tunes they are (discounting some useless diversionary interludes like "The Passing," etc. and some preachy lyrical posturing, a la "Blind Man") -- hard rock with clean, melodic edges and sharp harmonies. "Looking Out for #1" has a "Toys In The Attic" flavor; "Sweat Better In The Dark" a killer groove. The latest version includes four additional tracks of the same mold. Yeah, I dig it. 90 / 100

Decent record. Two killer tracks: Mama Lay Your Head Down and Whiskey River. The rest is just so so. Phil Naro in Blood Red Flower was a lot better (= not everybody's taste though)
