From: Chris Date: January 28, 2001 at 11:49
Excellent hard rock/AOR CD in the vein of House of Lords and Giant. I recommend this disc to any fan of AOR and hard rock.

From: Paulo Fernandes Date: June 24, 2001 at 8:51
Truly excellent, one of my best cds, after ten years it still sounds refreshing paulo_fernandes@clix.pt

From: wadelink Date: November 12, 2001 at 19:13
when people comment why dont they talk about the record rather the person or persons who commented earlier this record is not bad they sound like house of lords thou as noted i give it a 6/10

From: dokken6008 Date: April 21, 2002 at 11:29
I will admit I went a tad overboard on insulting dess, but man it just felt like you were asking for it. ANYWAYYYY, Neverland's 1st & only studio recording is somewhat of a different kind of cd than most melodic rockers would expect. Neverland ARE melodic, but their sound was WAY ahead of their time & is totally different than the hairbands we have all come to know & love. They their own sound. This cd is not that solid, however, & the only stand-outs are "Drinking Again" & "Running On". 7.0/10

From: dokken6008 Date: April 21, 2002 at 11:32
One side note: "Drinking Again" can also be found on Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey soundtrack, which has been long out of print as well as Neverland's first/only disc.

From: Foghat Date: October 28, 2002 at 7:33
Great CD! Good production,fantastic guitars and hooks galore. Not a bad cut on it. "Cry all night" should have been a smash hit. But Neverland is history and we now have this wonderful "Rap ( crap ) rock" and "Yell rock" which is so much better! Right!?!?

From: David Yu Date: December 10, 2002 at 11:10
Is anybody have Neverland's Lyrics? It's hard for me to find those,Thanks. slayeryu2002@hotmail.com

From: izzy Date: December 15, 2002 at 21:25
i just found this disk used for a $1!!

From: Rycheage Date: December 26, 2002 at 23:26
Excellent hard rock in the vein of Bon Jovi and Giant. "Running On" and "Cry All Night" are the gems on a real strong CD.

From: Tim Date: January 25, 2003 at 3:02
Saw them open for Kix in 91'. Awesome. Cd is great.

From: jety Date: February 16, 2003 at 19:28
Awesome cd! ten thousand years is a beautiful ballad...9 out of 10

From: Date: February 26, 2003 at 19:20
I remember passing on "Neverland" when it came out because Lon Friend used "U2" as a comparison when he reviewed it on his "Friend At Large" segment on the "Headbanger's Ball". After broadening my horizons a bit I stumbled across it cheap and it became partially responsible for convincing me that melodic rock is as good as it is. Even though it didn't rock as hard as I'd previously preferred it became one of my favorite albumns of all time.

From: Date: February 26, 2003 at 19:30
Something completely overlooked here is that guitarist, Patrick Sugg and bassist, Gary Lee, stuck together and released a second Neverland album called "Surreal World" on "Escape Music" in 1996. While that sure is exciting news for us fans it's not all it's cracked up to be. The album was a ridiculous, alternative, offensive, heel turn. It was such a let down that it made me suspicious of many bands' mid-90s follow-ups. Sorry to be the bearer of potentially good news, then shatter your dreams.

From: tomcat Date: August 27, 2003 at 17:43
i discovered this album actually pretty late, around...euh now.this is one of the best albums i heard EVER., not kidding . i know i'm always positive, but when it comes to this cd, i'm very , very possitive and very , very glad it came into my life.So much talent, and yes, i even want to hear their 'alternative' 1996 release. '10 000 years' left me stunned.!!!!, What a great song. "drinkin' again'is among other amazing songs.

From: PauloFernandes Date: August 28, 2003 at 18:33
Oh yeah Tomcat's right - i've said it before, and i'll say it again - GREAT CD - don't think twice - grab it!

From: Rocker76 Date: December 16, 2003 at 9:50
Shame on anyone who compares this to House of Lords. Attention potential buyers: Don't be misled. These guys sound nothing like House of Lords. There are only hints and glimpses of the 80s melodic power rock found in the Lords stuff. Neverland amount to an 80s hard rock band that decided to throw in something a little extra to stand out. End result - it stinks.

From: erik Date: February 22, 2004 at 18:18
I agree its not fair to compare these guys 2 the house of lords. No way. This is far better stuf. Like song 3: It will absolutely "Take You Higher". Stunning stuff. Just great well balanced sonds. Good vocals. Ahead of their time. Pure melodic. Forget what Rocker sais he clearly has bad taste. This a great band. Still together ?

From: Rocker76 Date: March 8, 2004 at 10:12
Everyone has their opinions...but at the end of the day, when all is said and done, this band is still only a fraction of what House of Lords are. The Lords had the experience, the talent, the songs, etc. to kick major ass in late 80s/early 90s hard rock. I don't remember Neverland doing a damn thing other than this album before they figured out they sucked as an 80s-era hard rock band and changed their sound completely. Hey Erik, just listen to the Lords debut again and tell me you still agree

From: metalman Date: April 7, 2004 at 23:17
WHAT??????? Does everyone remember integrity??????? This band KICKS ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!They sung soulful;almost bluesyish songs that DRIPPED emotion!!!!!!!!They knew their chops!!!!!!I almost didn't get their album because of the goofy glare that the guitar player does!!THANK GOD that I did because this album belongs in the greatest of all time!!!!They sing catchy songs that don,t sound contrived;IF that's not to big of a word for you to comprehend.What ever happened to these guys

From: Max Date: April 25, 2004 at 6:28
10,000 years is a classic ballad. It even was on the radio in Colombia, South America, where I am from.

From: shamus Date: May 26, 2004 at 3:18
Guitarist Patrick Sugg and drummer Scott Garrett (who played drums on the Cult's s/t cd) teamed with Ian Astbury to form the Holy Barbarians after the Cult split up. The result is closer to a psychedelic version of Astbury's former band than Neverland's slick debut.

From: DANTE Date: June 25, 2004 at 12:40
A mi este es un disco que me encanta, todas las composiciones son excelentes y el Dean Ortega canta pa cagarse. Aunque ojo no es un album de Hard Rock / Aor al uso, tiene bastantes elementos que los hacen tener un sonido bastante propio y que los diferencia de la mayoria de formaciones (por lo menos en este su 1er cd, porque con el 2 "Surreal World" perdieron toda su magia y pasaron a ser un grupo mas del montn, puede que sea xq Dean Ortega abandono el barco). Sigo....

From: DANTE Date: June 25, 2004 at 12:44
Sigo.... Por compararles con alguien y solo para que os hagais una idea de por donde van los tiros, diria que son una version mas roquera de los primeros GUN escoceses, los cuales no sabes si catalogarlos a veces de rock, pop,aor..etc. y es que lo nico que cuenta al final son las canciones y en este album de Neverland todas ellas son muy buenas y con mucha melodia. Para mi un 20 sobre 10.

From: MIGUEL-ROCK Date: October 18, 2004 at 8:56
EXCELENTE DISCO , DESDE LA 1ERA VEZ Q LO ESCUCHE Y AUNQUE EL TIEMPO PASA RAPIDO Y OTROS GENEROS DE MUSICA ESTA EN EL TOP , ESTE GRUPO DE NEVERLAND AL PESAR Q SACARON SOLO ESTE ALBUM SE MANTIENE , LASTIMA Q EL GRUPO NO SIGUIERA...SI ALGUIEN DESEA PUEDE ESCRIBIRME O PODEMOS INTERCAMBIAR MUSICA , MI CORREO ES ; mazzetti2001@yahoo.com

From: Marcus Date: November 17, 2004 at 22:41
Great band...with soothing melodic rock...sure it's not hard rock and as someone mentions above they were way ahead of their time. I can listen to this cd today and still feel and hear what great musicianship Neverland was.

From: Geoff Date: December 27, 2004 at 20:44
Not actually a huge fan of these guys. It's nice pleasant AOR, but in being that it's not really spectacular either. Not a single track actually reach out and grabbed me here. Not awful by any means, and consistent in it's delivery, but not for me personally.

From: C.j. Scheck Date: January 3, 2005 at 16:06
Anyone with any NEVERLAND demo's video's or live video's PLEASE write. Check out the 2nd CD it's GREAT!!! But sometimes I think I'm the only one who liked it. saltydog419@webtv.net

From: BIG-TIME Date: January 13, 2006 at 16:23
Don't like this CD, first track sound's very modern or something from the new metal era. There is nothing on this that keep's me iterested, if your a fan of this site, keep well away from this album.

From: BIG-TIME Date: August 17, 2006 at 15:51
No Forget what I said last time find the band memebers and...well you get the picture. Giant and House of Lords YOU MUST BE JOKING these just plain SUCK.

From: metalalways Date: December 16, 2007 at 19:27
This band rocks it kicks ass from start to finish i think neverland is very underrated band i never heard their second cd surreal world but from what i've heard it's not nearly as good as their debut cd i have a question about two neverland songs ok the song for the love was on the bill and ted's bogus journey movie but it wasn't on the soundtrack the song drinking again wasn't on the movie but it was on the soundtrack i think they should've put that song for the love on the soundtrack too does

From: metalalways Date: December 16, 2007 at 19:30
anybody have any info on why they switched songs on the soundtrack i mean i love drinking again but for the love kicks ass i love the guitar playing in that song i just think it was kind of weird the way they did that i remember reading somewhere that on the previews back in 1991 when bill and ted's bogus journey first came out that they used the song drinking again to promote the movie or something like that.

I had never heard this disc before until I got it in a trade. Where has this been all my life - truly excellent. Reminds me a little of less keyboard version of Boulevard (especially with the vocals aswell), but more importantly some fabulous tunes - 'Running On', 'Ten Thousand Years' and the awesome 'Mama Said' especially. This will definitely take a hammering over the coming days and weeks

From: the rocker Date: August 14, 2009 at 21:38
I don't think this is bad. but house of lords and giant? I don't think so. not even close to that good or even that style.

From: Swazi Date: August 21, 2009 at 6:41
I can only agree with my friend Jez. WHERE HAS THIS BEEN ALL MY LIFE ?? This is absolutely stunning stuff ! Some people on this board must have a serious ear problem... HIGHLY recommended !!

From: edwithmj Date: January 23, 2010 at 19:35
This CD definitely grows on you. It has a unique sound which I've never experienced before. Some excellent tracks on here like Cry No More, Take Me Higher, Drinking Again and 10,000 years but the whole album is very easy to lsiten to and gets better each time you do.

From: edwithmj Date: January 23, 2010 at 19:44
I'm just full of mistakes tonight. I meant Cry All Night is my favourite song not "Cry No More" lol. Anyway it's a great album with an Indie rock/pop feel to it.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: January 17, 2011 at 21:55
Love this album!!!...great mix of Rock,Pop & AOR and with a good vocalist aboard (Dean Ortega ,he must be a latin descendant because of his last name)..."Running On" is a very good starter that reminded me of another band led by hispanics named Nuclear Valdez,"Cry All Night" AORish feel,"Take Me Higher" a goodie one,"Drinking Again" another AOrish track being this one pretty good,"Mama Said" nice pop,"My Opinion" nice rock,"Time To Let Go" great! & "For The Love" rocking ending song...get this a.s.a.p. 90/100

From: hair metal again Date: December 11, 2012 at 5:58
excellent hair metal debut by NEVERLAND back in a day when it was quite hard rockin!a nice artisticapproach ,great musicianship ,well hidden hooks and some great songs is what you get!"drinking again","cry all night","lean on me" are the highlights of this essential release for experienced ears!

From: Dramarama Date: July 26, 2015 at 6:05
I bought this cassette when I was in high school because a local radio station played Drive All Night and I thought it was a great song. I always thought they were pretty unique especially compared to what was out at the time. Kinda reminded me of Geddy Lee singing for Giant. Anyways I've picked it up on CD over the last few years and it still holds up. Great music is truly timeless.
