My fave ALASKA album. Songs like THE SORCERER and SUSIE BLUE are classics. This is a real buy or die release. Listen to me for ones in your life and buy this increible cool cd.

'Don't say it's over' is decent AOR. I don't mind that track but I won't touch the rest of it ever again. Not awful, but IMO very bland AOR with no reason for return spins.

From: Peters Date: May 15, 2006 at 16:06
After a long 15 year wait finally got hold of this one and Rene I'm afraid I'm going to have to disagree with you and say this one is absolute trash. I far prefer The Pack. This is just too AOR and the keyboards are just too much to the front for a band which is supposedly a vehicle for Bernie Marsden.

From: z4roxx Date: April 22, 2007 at 11:52
Mmmmnnnn this cd now is good for me,I think it needs some more listenings to be appreciated.Old aor but good!!!8/10 with some very good melodies!!!

From: crucialminor Date: November 20, 2008 at 16:40
'The sorcerer', 'Can`t let go' and 'Susie blue' are great AOR-Songs, but I agree Peters that many of the rest of the songs got too big keyboard parts and are not these one you expect when it got a big sticker ' Bernie Mardsen - Ex-Whitesnake '.

From: Axelinger Date: March 2, 2009 at 19:40
Limp, tepid, watered-down pap in serious search of a decent lyricist. Throw in the odd bit of schmaltzy sax here and there, and it all adds up to a snoozefest. Only Keel could throw as many trite and hackneyed cliches into their lyrics; the songs read like first lesson teachings of rhyme to adolescent students. Lyrically, as laughable as it gets. Airey and Marsden should be ashamed of themselves.

From: erik Date: June 10, 2009 at 15:51
Funny to read so many negative comments. Well forget about those. This is a very good aor album. old yes maybe but its 1984. Love the vibe on the songs. Voices on the Radio, Susie Blue ( listen carefully and you will hear the later band First Shot in that ), Need your Love, Other Side of Midnight, Coupe de Ville are excellent AOR tracks. Nice one ! 82/100

From: erik Date: June 10, 2009 at 16:08
And i forgot Heart of the Storm and Cant let Go ! Yep pleasant album

From: rick kerch vzla Date: March 2, 2013 at 21:17
Actually ' The Sorcerer'(rocks!) & 'Susie Blue' were a couple of hits of the band back then and perhaps that made this release a bit more considerated by the media than 'The Pack'...the album basically consisted of nice AOR friendly songs with that British formula...check tracks 2,3,5 & 6 also and you will agree with me...the CD re-edition brings 3 pleasant bonus tracks that makes it more appealing to have and obviously to buy...89/100
