A very good cd, but they started to get a little mellower. Some outstanding tracks, but not the same energy as the first 2 CDs. Still one of my fave bands.

mr.big,four virtuoso icluding band.i'm a die hard paul fan,cool dudes great songs,my fave mr.big cd.

Eventhough I hate Mr Big, I really love the guitarplaying of Paul Gilbert. Just found his tribute to Jimi Hendrix, and just bought a cd called Paul Gilbert and Jimi Kidd - Raw Power. Theyre both fantastic. He is a fantastic player.

A more pop-oriented album but still the level is high! From the groovy rockers to mellow ballads, the listening remains interesting. Good effort

Bump Ahead, the 3rd chapter for Mr.Big, is a great album. Very guitar oriented, Paul Gilbert is the winner here. Listen to his solo in The Whole World's Gonna Know!! It includes a couple of good ballads and the greatest bluesy hard rock tune ever: Price You Gotta Pay. Even the king Glenn Hughes surrender to that song... The japanese bonus track Long Way Down is a good rock song, and there is also a b-side song called Let Yourself Go.

They should quit after this album, it was the swan song of this great band, after this album they made a lot of mistakes, the Gilbert´s departed was a clear sign they should quit

Another one of those albums just sitting in my collection for one song. I guess 'Nothing but love' and 'The whole world is gonna know' are pretty damn good too, but for me this album is worth 'Promise her the moon' alone. One of the finest melodic rock ballads I ever did hear. Beautiful song and adds a glow to what is otherwise a pretty dead and damp collection of songs. 5/10

From: Joan Date: April 22, 2005 at 11:32
Alucinante! mi favorito de Mr. Big. Wild World, Nothing but love, Promise her the moon..

From: SCANDI Date: April 16, 2006 at 15:38
I don't have enough knowledge to know if "Wild world" is actually from them or a cover. But I like the cool & groovy '86 version of Inker+Hamilton a lightyears better since I never liked this version. It almost sounds "unplugged". Well, that was obviously modern in that time. If you can't get an impression how Inker+Hamilton's version would sound like, just imagine Lisa Nemzo had sung this song on her first album.

From: "el gran Ñako" Date: May 7, 2006 at 6:51
Un disco más blandito de una banda de virtuosos que tras las dos primeras obras de arte grababan algo más comercial. Evidentemente el video de “To be with you” emitido en la MTV había cambiado de las primeras filas a los chavales ávidos de aprender una escala de bajo de sheehan o un diabólico solo de Gilbert por jovencitas suspirando por la melena de Eric. El resultado es un disco lleno de medios tiempos y baladitas enternecedoras y el mismo buen hacer de siempre.

Not one person has mentioned the song Colorado Bulldog?!?!?!? THE Best song on there! along with Price You Gotta Pay and Temperemental. AWESOME!!

From: hair metal again Date: July 17, 2009 at 3:06
mr big continues in the same sound as their previous releases.the result is great and mr big dont choose the path of a more alternative sound as many bands did back then.kevin elson again produces in a perfect way,eric's voice is magic and mr big releases"nothing but love","price you gotta pay","what's it gonna be".long live hard rock

From: Animal! Date: January 22, 2011 at 1:54
I agree Colorado Bulldog blew me away, I'm still pulling myself together.

From: rockhardrock Date: February 3, 2011 at 19:00
the first thing you hear on this one is the same sound. they haven't changed even though alternative rock movement came in and dominated the charts.just congratulations guys! my faves: colorado bulldog, ain't seen love like that and promise her the moon.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: December 23, 2012 at 17:09
Good rocking album for sure!!!..with its additional "commercial" side but still fine,just released before the explosion of the grunge movement(thanks God!)and obviously delivered some homemade Mr Big songs in the shape of "Colorado Bulldog"(kicking a** song!),"Price You Gotta Pay","Promise Her The Moon"(nice),"The Whole World's Gonna Know","Nothing But Love"(nice),"Temperamental" & "Ain't Seen Love Like That"(nice)...recommended...90/100
