This is one of the best Kim Mitchell has done he is a very talented guitar player.Favorite songs are Go For A Soda,Lager&Ale and Diary For Rock N Roll Men.

From: Mike D Date: June 4, 2002 at 3:39
Kim is an underrated singer, guitar and song writer. A song like "All We Are" should be in every top ten list in the world, while rockers like "Lager & Ale" should be on every jukebox in every bar worldwide. :-)

Go for soda is a classic tune! The guitar is totally awesome and it rate in my top ten best guitar licks. The rest of the cd is mediocore. I grew up with this cassette so I like 3/4ths of the songs but if you haven't heard him before you probably would only like about 3 songs. The first song is worth the whole cd though so if ya buy it rock hard on go for soda. Enjoy!

Awesome Debut ( after the Mini album). Kim is on top form here. 'Called Of' and 'All We Are' r immense ballads which top this album, although all the other tracks r universally excellent aswell.

From: Brandon Date: April 18, 2004 at 13:16
Great album. Go For A Soda was the theme song for MADD back in the 80s. That song still gets pleanty or air play today, even in the states. This album is great from start to finish.

Top notch album from ex-Max Webster frontman. Go for Soda starts the CD up in fine style and the album veers effortlessly from great rockers (Diary...) to really strong ballads (Fell it Burn), the quirkiness so prevelant when he was with the Max's is still present throughout but comes to the fore in Love Ties. Must be a 9.5/10

I think I beat this record into the ground and went thru about 2 or 3 copies in the 80's. I saw him live when he opened for Van Zant and he SMOKED them!!!!! This guy is a truly SEASONED musician. This record just BLOWS UP!!!!!!

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: October 15, 2006 at 23:32
Very Good Hard Rock/AOR album, amo este clasico y mas por un tema especial que formo parte de mi niņes All We Are una de las mejores baladas de la Decada y en especial la majestuosa e inconfundible voz por favor quiero que hablen mas de esta leyenda cuyo nombre es Peter Fredette seņores es obligado tener el album de Metropolis donde Peter muestra toda su magia un clasico de clasicos, este album es mayormente Hard Rock no del duro pero Hard Rock y con su AOR...

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: October 15, 2006 at 23:37
...el AOR se ve reflejado en las 3 baladas All We Are, Caroline(otro temazo que estilazo como me gustan si seņor!), Called Off el resto ya es Hard Rock y del bueno Go For a Soda es un corte clasico de los 80's un temazo en fin de todo corazon recomiendo este buenisimo album 4.5/5 or 9/10.

Good album.Enough said

From: tentacle Date: June 27, 2008 at 0:19
Excellent album from Mitchell. Peter Fredette's singing on "All We Are" brings tears to ones eye. Especially if watching it from the live dvd.

From: overkillrulz Date: March 6, 2009 at 13:16
I don't see what's so good with this cd. I think it's rubbish. Definitely not worth a rating in the 90's. I give it 50.

From: Axelinger Date: July 13, 2009 at 20:28
Features one of Kim Mitchell's very finest guitar solos ever on Rumour Has It.

From: hair metal again Date: June 27, 2016 at 9:35
