If you like big hooks,great lead & harmony vocals and massive keys, then you should go for this one,Brinx has it all!Every song is great!If you like bands like "Outland", "Skagarack","Defcon"...this should be in your collection. "Hearts On Fire" is the albums highlight with massive keys and a very good refrain.The only negative thing with this album is the production...

Not alot to add from above on this one. An enjoyable release for sure with some great songs especially 'Hearts On Fire'. Don't know if these were only demo's or what, as Soundwise they're not the best thing I have ever heard (although not the worst either it has to be said). If you like your typical 80's MR/AOR and don't mind a less than perfect production job, then this is recommended.

From: Kim HP Date: July 9, 2006 at 12:32
Yeah, very cool album, originally from '89 I believe. My favourites are "Hearts On Fire", "Alone" and "Rain On The City". If you like this album, check out the band "The Action", also on Retrospect records.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: July 10, 2006 at 1:16
This is a Classic and Super Rare AOR/Melodic Hard Rock album, Increible que este por estos lares esta Joyita del AOR y correcto es del 89 y como casi en todo lo lanzado por Retrospect la produccion es algo baja pero ellos solo lanzan rarezas y albums que jamas an salido a la luz en CD, en si el album es exquesito con ese sabor unico e imcomparable de esos aņos suena como al 86 Hearts On Fire el tema mas magistral 8.5/10

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: July 10, 2006 at 1:19
exquisito no exquesito(seria un ex queso) jajaja!

Pero Q Bueno!!!! La Ostia Puta!!! pero d dd coņo han salido estos!!! HEARTS ON FIRE es demasie pa el corazon!!

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: September 8, 2006 at 16:52
yeah ROBERT HEARTS ON FIRE RULES!!! tengo una coleccion de temas con este titulo y todas BRUTALES dentro del Rock es uno de los mejores titulos para una cancion tanto solistas como bandas se esmeran con este letra nunca me han defraudado.

From: sanxdowntherainbow Date: December 12, 2006 at 1:04
Hey this is what I call a Forgotten Gem !, It has it all, great choruses, TONS OF KEYBOARDS !! WOW!! and killer guitar work!, too bad the production sucks big time! anyways, should be in any collection of AOR/Melodic rock fans!.And again,If find it...BUY IT !!

From: LGBG1978 Date: January 31, 2007 at 22:47
Rareza del rock, retrospect para lujo y exclusividad, en lo personal la portada no me gusta, creo que como siempre la produccion en retrospect falla, esa bateria seņores que lujo lastima el sonido, los teclados son buenos,lastima no sea asi ahora, ese rock es genial.

From: KurtmanJP Date: April 19, 2008 at 0:28
"Rain On The City" and "Hearts On Fire" are both excellent songs! I just wish they had a slow piano ballad to balance things out.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: November 15, 2010 at 20:44
Very pleasant AOR album with smooth keyboards that give the songs this particular and unique feel...lovely voice,quiet and relaxed but edgy where needed..."Hearts On Fire"(a highlight song just right after the intro),"Heard It All Before"(a very good song this one),"Alone"(nice)...the best ones are the last 4 ones (at least 4 me),"Don't Fear The Night","Action On The Run","Rain On The City" & "Never The Lonely One"...a good choice to pick!.89/100

Did they know the tower crashes in 2001 by then? For me it looks like they had a future look..
