Very good AOR band, with a great singer in Joe Lamente!Their sound is typical for the early 80ies US bands, like "Le Roux", "Alliance", RPM...It contains one of my alltime favourite AOR songs..."On The Line", other great tracks are, "So Glad I Found You", "Who Do You Love" and "Underneath Your Makeup". I will highly recommend this one!

Another rather rare AOR album from the mighty eighties ! Good as it is, it can't compete with the other added rare pearls : Windfall and Level ! Nice AOR, but not as essential as both Windfall and Level, which are unique !

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: October 24, 2005 at 20:25
Good-Great AOR album a CLASSIC!!! este es mi favorito de estos 3 nuevos albums agreagados en este glorioso site, y como no va a serlo si cuenta con magistrales cortes como So Glad I Found You(my favorite PURE MAGIC!!!), On The Line, The Way I Feel(Great Ballad), Tricks, Why 5 cortes que convierten a este album en Imprescindible, asi que a conseguirlo. saludos de Rafo Phoenix "The Legend" from Ica-Peru, my new mail is RafoPhoenix@hotmail.com for all AOR and MR lovers. Regards.

Great AOR album. If you like Preview, I-Ten or Franke & The Knockouts you need this little gem too.

Another blast from the past and pretty much essential for all the Aor/Pomp fans here. A good mix of Foreigner, Le Roux and a bit of Balance thrown into the mix. All the material is of a high standard, so no complaints whatsoever on that score. The Allegedly Remastered sound!!!(and I use the word Alleged with good reason)is pretty poor if truth betold, with my vinyl sounding a whole heap better. Still, worth getting on CD if you see it, as it is a little gem in the world of AOR.

From: SangreAzulForever Date: September 4, 2006 at 16:44
A must have to every Foreigner, I-Ten, Le Roux or Airrace fans. The sounding is so incredibly great that it´s worth buying it. 10/10.

From: Kim HP Date: September 4, 2006 at 18:10
Agreed... essential early 80's AOR here! Takes a few spins to fully get into, but then you're hooked... not a 10 IMO, but still very good.

Joyita para mas desconocida.. Bien compacto el disco, desde la voz hasta los teclados. Dificil la elección de temas aquí, me quedo con "On The Line" es encantadora, me recuerda a Van Zant (y casi todo el disco) y demás. Hay baladitas maravillosas como "Why" o "The Way I Feel" que no puedes dejar pasar, "Foolish Lovers" "Who Do You Love" "So Glad I Found You", vaya listón. Excepto el tema-título el resto es todo un manjar para todo amante del AOR de inicios de los 80s. Super-Recomendado. 9/10

From: Carlos A. Date: May 19, 2007 at 18:44
Digno ejemplo del mejor AOR en su linea mas clasica, ni buen lo escuche hace ya buen tiempo al toque le encontre el gusto, melodias que combina finura y fuerza, guitarras con precision suiza y el cantante! un fuera de serie! sino escuchenlo entre las maravillas en "So Glad I Found You" temazo con intro a lo Hot Blooded de Foreigner(es mas suenan a Foreigner de fines de los 70`s!)y cierran con un esquisito tema en plan Westcoast "Because Of Love" se puede pedir mas???. Un Discazo 9.2/10

From: barker Date: May 22, 2009 at 15:24
First listen brings to mind Le Roux - which is no bad thing - essential for all lovers of early Eighties AOR/Pomp - gets better with every spin.

From: halfordhughes Date: September 20, 2011 at 23:36
very good aor!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: September 29, 2011 at 22:06
Classic old school AOR...enjoyable for sure and the vocalist just fits right...best tracks for me are "Who Do You Love","Underneath Your Make Up","Shelter" & "Foolish Lovers"..."On The Line" is a decent starter & "The Way I Feel" is a nice ballad...80/100
