Again, it's hard to call it AOR, rather alternative 80s rock/pop, sometimes drifting into something a bit melodic. As you see songs titles suck. It rather call it Tears for fears clone (it's not my cup of tea, so maybe I'm wrong), than "lite AOR". Maybe sometimes(in hi-tech places) Stabilizers come to mind. Some tracks are really unappetizing. I don't like it.

Good Pop Rock, Pop Rock con algo de sonido alternativo y algo de Hi-Tech pero 100% 80's y con muy buenos temas asi que no es para tomarlo a la ligera y como este hay cientos de buenos albums de Pop Rock desconocidos y como amante de los 80's este trabajo lo recomiendo claro como ya dije Pop Rock asi que los chicos duros olvidense de el pero si no les gusta el buen Pop Rock de los 80's no son Completos en simples palabras les falta mucho en sus gustos...

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: March 9, 2007 at 19:27
ahora para los que no tienen ni puta idea de esta banda a quien se parecen en simples palabras "The Police" el cantante es Sting asi de simple 100% Sting su clon en timbre de voz y el estilo 100% "The Police" por alli algo de Tears For Fears como dice Peter Stabilizers??? queee fueron nombrados uno de los intocables ya e metido palo a muchos por hablar mal de ellos en otro lugar y mejor que ni aparezcan por aca porque si veo algo malo no respondere asi como defiendo a Mr Mister, este disco 8/10.

No hay nada como estar solo como un Tigre sin preocupaciones sin hijos solo tu tu alma y la musica de los 80's vagar por las calles por las noches escuchando tu musica y sentirte realmente vivo cosa que los simples mortales no hacen los simples mortales cumplen su ciclo de vida y viven como robots todos los dias consumidos por el sistema si tu quieres ser diferente alguna vez mira el cielo y las estrellas y piensa que todo tiene un fin y este es tu momento de cambiar...

PopAOR y tiene mas cosas de The Police y de Tears For Fears como no, unos teclados bien puestos y una producción muy limpia, me recuerdan tambien a los Regatta y demas. Todo el disco es muy parejo para mi gusto. Si te va esto del PopAOR te va a encantar y con el sonido que ha dado la mejor época de la música en general. Gran disco. 8.5/10

Un disco normalito 75/100. Mas tirando a pop que otra cosa. El cantante como bien dicen tira a Sting totalmente. Tienen buena producción y buenos musicos pero les falta gancho. Si todas las canciones fueran como la que da titulo al álbum "stop the world" la cosa hubiera cambiado. De cualquier forma un álbum que gustará a los poperos de los 80.

Reminds me of Mexican group Maná at some points vocally wise (maybe those guys copied this US band). As people said here, it's Pop Rock with some hints of Alternative. Half of the CD, Revenge gets closer to Hi Tech AOR sounds. Game Goes On is a pretty good closing tune. Overall, a mediocre album, nothing too out of the ordinary. Rating: 6/10. Favorite Track: Game Goes On.

From: Erikk Date: July 18, 2021 at 10:24
Pop rock. Nothing special. Voice in similar style of Sting. Closing song is the best for me The Game goes On. 6/10
