Good to very good Lite AOR/westcoast CD. If you're into Starship, Toto, Mr.Mister and such artists this comes recommended. Best tracks: 'Think I Know What Love Is', 'Kari', 'Walking On Air' and 'Tip Of The Iceberg'.

From: peterpoland Date: January 31, 2006 at 17:19
Mr. Mister, John Farnham, Peter Cetera comparison are fully evident. If west-coast, lite Aor with hi-tech elements is your thing, you should grab this album. A good thing to own and surely his best album. What a monster line up!

From: swriter Date: January 31, 2006 at 19:24
yes, what a line up, great one, but very light, lighter then Billy Branigan who can't ssem to make it on the list!!!! hahahah Had this one on vinyl, is it now available on cd???

Madre mia, colaboran aqui practicamente la totalidad de sesionistas de primerisimo nivel que habia en esa época, asi es imposible sacar un disco malo, joder y tan imposible si encima tambien está el genio Spiro componiendo por ahi algun que otro tema...ufff.En fin disco recomendado para degustadores de West Coast o del A.O.R. mas fino y sosegado, me recuerda bastante en estilo a la época del "Now Is Then.../ Devotion" de Mark Spiro o al "Electricity / Renegade Romantic" de Paul Janz.INTERESANTE.

From: Lovedrive Date: May 30, 2006 at 16:08
Ni fu ni fa. Por cierto, el tema "Kani" es clavado a uno de Mark Spiro que se llama "Better with a broken heart", pero con distinta letra. Prefiero el de Spiro :P

Que poquísimos comments para un album demasiadamente bueno. Temas de Gran calidad, un AOR bien lite(toques Hi-Tech mínimos) y reboza muchísima calidad, que nombrecillos osea producción A1 y que voz la de Mr. Bishop! si hasta me parece escuchar al mismísimo David Pack(uno de mis cantantes favoritos en esto del LiteAOR/WestCoast) me encanta. Discazo para disfrutarlo de principio a fin y nombrar a mi favorita mmm.. "Love At A Distance" la mas AOR pero todo el album es disfrute total. 9/10

Mr. Bishop is one of the all time great singer/songwriters ever. I normally dislike the singer/songwriter genre, but Stephen Bishop is a true genius. If you like really heartfelt, well written, meaningful, and very melodic stuff, go get any of Stephen's cd's. He really is great artist!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: January 15, 2013 at 14:15
Very pleasant release...with a huge list of excellent musicians as guests...2 killer tracks are here in the shape of "Mr Heartbreak" and "Love At a Distance" plus these nice ones "Kari","Walking On Air","Innocent Love" & "Tip Of The Iceberg"...a very good album to own...87/100

High quality Hi Tech AOR by Stephen Bishop; probably not the style he was most popular for, but it sounds really great. Lots of feel good morning mood tunes, so many it seems like a greatest hits lol. In Sleeping With Girls he seems to channel Sting but with a 70s rhythm. haha I was right hearing Phil Collins on Walking On Air spot on. You can clearly hear the difference between each producer in the tracks. Maybe missing a great ballad or a hit single, but a nice album overall. Rating: 8/10. Favorite Track: Kari.
