Not very good in my opinion. I liked a few songs but nothing but "Undertow" stood out to me. I give it a 70.

From: Krister Date: January 25, 2011 at 11:32
Hope this'll grove on me. Lots of nice and heavy guitar riffs. After first listening tracks #6 and 8 are best. But I can't totally agree with Melodicrock.com on their rewiev, who gave it 100%. Agree with AlphaMale: I give it a 70 as well.

2010 in Japan!!

THis CD is easily as good as any classic Mr. Big CD. The band seem to be more concerned about the songs than proving they have killer chops (we all know they do by now, so I think it's a good strategy). The longer you listen the more you like it. Perhaps it is the devotion to songcraft over killer chops that has previos HeavyHarmonies raters upset. I don't know, but if that isn't it I can only guess that they are looking back on the past with rose colored glasses thereby scewing their perspective on this realease. I too love this type of music (or I wouldn't be here) but I believe most of these bands have many good years of songs left in them and am not so devoted to their past music thqt nothing else they do ill ever stand up. That would be unfair to the bands and honestly ruin an chance of finding new music I like. Hope I was helpful.

Glad they are back with the original line-up. I wasn't too thrilled with richie k in the band. Like 90% of the songs, but "once upon a time"& "around the world" are really ass kickin'. 8/10

From: masmusic Date: March 2, 2011 at 16:05
Just bought this today and have listened to it a few times. The verdict! This is really good! Great songs, riffs and vocals! Pick this up today you won't be dissapointed 9/10

Nice return! Much heavier than the previous efforts and a welcome return to form for the band. Let's hope for some more in the future.

very good release by MR BIG like all their previous ones.you can t go wrong with those guys,surely one of the greatest acts in hard rock music."undertow","once upon a time" and "all the way up" are the highlights of a release that is of the highest quality.there arent any new bands in the same level.this is definitely big

Original line returning with a new studio album in years and what an album!!!...what i like about it is that you can tell from miles away that this is a Mr Big album not only because the vocals of Eric Martin and the bass of the genious Billy or the amazing guitar playing of Paul plus the steady nice beat of Pat on drums,is mainly because they stick to their roots!!!..."Undertow" is the first single of the album,a goodie one with a little touch of modernism,"American Beauty" & "Still Ain't Enough For Me" both of great structure,"As Far As I Can See" pretty catchy and enjoyable & "Around The World" rocking out the best way possible...in general lines...a must!!!...92/100
