Very Good Melodic Rock/AOR album, good Production/Vocals and Great Guitar Solos. Lee Small reminded me a bit of Goran Edman/Glenn Hughes. "Only for the Night" Great cut!! It's my favorite song. Solid Album, Excellent job guys! 88/100 Ps. is there the necessity to name all the songs? nah!

Third vocalist for Shy...ummm ...Wardi did a great job in "Welcome To The Mad House" of 1994 replacing the "irreplaceable" Tony Mills and only lasted for that album,then after some years Tony came back to the band and then gone again back and forth and now comes this Small guy(quite "small" if you compare it to Tony and even Wardi)but honestly for such compromise the man at the end does it quite well...if i select songs there are some that most likely will put a smile in your face like they did to me("Pray","Only For The Night","Live For Me","Over You" & "Union Of Souls")...wether Lee Small record only an album or not is time for Shy to settle down completely or is it gonna be "one with Tony and one without Tony"...anyway,i give this an 89/100...

Is it bad that I (think) I actually like Shy with Lee Small, rather than Tony Mills (or John Ward)? No slight on either of those guys, but I think this just might be Shy's best album.

After a major dip in quality after 'Excess All Areas' in the late 80's, the last 2 Shy albums were very decent AOR /Melodic rock albums, flawed admittedly, but enjoyable non the less. I nearly spat my coffeee out after listening to the opening salvo of tracks on this latest album. This band has grown some very big balls since 'Sunset And Vine' 6 years ago in every department, opener 'Land Of A Thousand Lies' and 'So Many Times' come charging out of the speakers providing ample proof of that. Another major difference here is that Tony Mills has departed (never my fave vocalist if I am truthful)) and in comes Glen Hughes soundalike Lee Small who does a phenomenal job. Joe Basketts keys are superb too and have added a bombastic sheen to the whole sound, aswell as the ever present Steve Harris, who has always been a much underrated guitarist. Songwise, check out the fantastic 'Ran Out Of Time' and 'Save Me' for a couple of absolute pearlers and 2 of the best tracks I have heard in a very l

..while. Other highlights include 'Only For The Night', 'Life For Me'..hell there isn't one bad tune on here at all, so just go and buy it. THE major surprise of this year without a doubt. 90/100

Let me just start by stating Tony Mills is a great vocalist but for some reason the way this cd was written fits better for Lee Small's voice. The guy can sing and does a pretty good job. Add to that the awesome lead work and inventive mind of Steve Harris and we have great album. Excellent melodic rock with lots of hooks. I think the best they have done since Excess. Favorite tracks, the ballad Breathe, So Many Teras, Blood On The Line, Over You and Union of Souls but overall it is an awesome album. Cannot be compared to any of their older material, the guitars are just a bit crunchier with the best lead work Harris ever done. I have been listening to this release for over a month now non stop. We miss you Steve, rest in peace!!! 99/100

Surprise of the year 2011 along with The Magnificent! Greetings from Lima, Peru!

Shy S/T is a appropriate title as this is a rebirth of the band with Lee Small(Surveillance)at the helm. Small adds as much to Shy as Tony Mills detracts from TNT. Shy has gone without Mills once before with the ill received 'Welcome to the Madhouse' with Wardi on vox. 'Excess all areas' didn't thrill me as much as some as I liked the band's attempt at Americana hair metal 'Misspent Youth' the best, even with the terrible production. Shy did the right thing not seeking out a Mill's 'helium-high-bred' vocalist as Small has a lower range, but his excellent voice gels with the band and that's all that matters. 'Land of a Thousand Lies' is a sensational ballsy opener(even with violins). As Jez mentions with 'bombastic sheen' Joe Basketts puts on a keyboard clinic(listen and learn White Widdow) but doesn't detract from the harder edge sound, making this a top notch polished melodic hard rock album. 'Breathe' might be the best ballad of the year as this one is in my top 10 for 2011.

a deception for me.this record is drown under an ocean of keyboards.sometimes they sound metal,sometimes prog ,yes it s a bombastic realise ,too much for me.track 5 "blood on the line" is the best song of the cd ,a top class song ,a hit.the rest don t hooked me.the japan bonus track is a live version of "emergency",very interesting even if the singer lee small is weak and very limited.
