This is one of my top 5 Westcoast album! It begins with the MEGA song "Danger" witch is more AOR oriented,toghether with "Thru The Eyes Of Love" with nice keys and guitars.Then we have some perfect Westcoast songs like "She Doesn't Mean A Thing To Me","Our Love" and "Let Me Be Yours Tonight" this toghether with some lovely ballads such as "I Don't Want To Lose Your Love" makes this to one of the best in the genre.John has a really great voice too and the production is on the highest level..9/10

Dios Bendito, Q pasada!! Por fin veo por aki a mi Solista Favorito d WEST/COAST!!! Si el 1º d 1981 es para mi gusto es la Obra d Arte mas grande q se a exo en este super Romantico y Sensacional Estilo, este tampoco se keda corto!! Q Temazos, cuanta Melodía, y cuanta Ternura!! DEEP IN THE NIGHT - T transporta directamente a lo mas profundo d la noxe!!! UNDERCOVER LOVE - Ya es es sonido y estilo clasico d John, en una Palabra: ACOJONANTE!! OUR LOVE - otra Obra d arte mas, en la misma linea del Pri

From: ROBERT Date: September 27, 2006 at 20:25
del Primer y mitico disco I Don't Want To Lose Your Love - ¿q puedo decir? mis palabras no son capaces d expresar lo q se siente cuando se escuxa una balada como esta!!! Buen solo d Saxo! DANGER – es la mas “dura” del disco. TAKE ME BACK – Otro Baladon, el Gran Fuerte del Bueno del JOHN!! Let Me Be Yours Tonight - Me encanta! Kizas aparte del Baladon , es mi Favorita. Suenan asta castañuelas!! Q teclas, q Solo, q Lujo… RICHIE ZITO y JOE CARBONE y el propio JOHN se volvieron a salir con esta 2ª O

From: ROBERT Date: September 27, 2006 at 20:26
2ª Obra Maestra!! Q Pedazo d Musicos/Magos, tan Geniales y tan Alucinantes Similar en estilo y epoca a Genialidades como: Airplay, Steve Kipner, David Roberts, Dwayne Ford...etc etc 9 d 10!!

From: peterpoland Date: September 29, 2006 at 17:31
Strong and classy westcoast AOR album. Nice keyboards and good guitars as well. The album doesn't sound dated today largely due to clean and professional production (how can something sound bad if Richie Zito has participated in recording). Sometimes it's more west-coastish and sometimes more AORish, what makes this album more likable to melodic rock lovers. David Roberts meets David Pack and Jack Wagner.

Fayece el Amo y Genio del WEST COAST: JOHN O'BANION, El 14 de febrero 2007, a los 60 años Dios Santo, q Perdida para el WEST COAST-A.O.R. y para la Musica en General!! :cry: :cry: :cry: Descanse en Paz! Jamas t olvidaremos! Ubiera dado Todo por verlo en 1981/1982 presentando en L.A en Directo sus 2 Primeras Mega Obras d Arte Supremas del WEST COAST!! Terrible!

From: Carlos A. Date: June 8, 2007 at 22:37
AOR de luxe (decir esto suena algo pacharaquiento ja!)buen trabajo el de O´banion: buenos arreglos,full melodias,guitarras suaves pero cañeras(tonadas a lo franke & ko,rick springfield,russ ballard,etc) tengo la impresion que el estilo del cantante aunque romantico es como guante de seda en mano de hierro, super-inicio con "Danger" ademas "Undercover Love","Take Me Back",etc para los babosos que depotrican del pais les digo que este disco salio en edicion nacional al año del lanzamiento 9.2/10

From: Carlos A. Date: June 8, 2007 at 22:56
Veo que me comi una ese por alli lo ubican???...ojo aqui se encuentra Richard "richie" Zito el hacha de Dakota (Runaways) estan advertidos.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 9, 2007 at 7:49
Muy buen album no hay duda, hey Robert y que me dices de sus otras obras!! este tio tiene un nivel de esos eh!! y como que la gente anda con palabras tecnicas por aca con tal que no se metan con los demas y no lo hagan con doble sentido porque si no... esta musica no esta hecha para todos los demas babosos del Peru que solo escuchan porquerias como regaeton paneton y demas cojudeces.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 9, 2007 at 9:55
Es una desgracia aca en Peru pero es la verdad como la gente juzga y critica a los que escuchan Rock en ingles, por mi parte nunca e tenido problemas con eso porque siendo mi padre britanico mi presencia los asusta, pero me jode que se metan con mis amigos y que se burlen de ellos diciendoles miren a este paisano escuchando Rock ni saben que cantan y esuchan esa musica de otros paises, esa es una completa ignorancia y cuando la musica que escuchan ellos si deja mucho que desear...

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: June 9, 2007 at 10:01
... por eso es que aca siempre estaremos atrasados si supieran la clase de musica que es esta el tipo de letra y mensajes que dan pero ellos en su ignorancia obvian eso y juzgan sin saber, ya e tenido muchas broncas por defender esta clase de musica y siempre e salido victorioso y eso porque la calidad siempre superara a la cantidad y mediocridad, por eso a todos auqellos que escuchan y valoran esta musica tienen todo mi respeto aunque tengamos algunas diferencias pero sabemos lo que es bueno.

From: JagWire Date: March 3, 2008 at 4:17
IMHO this is not his best work,but a great album however.The debut for me is THE DEFINITIVE 1981 A.O.R. ALBUM(yes,better than Escape)to have at any cost,like David Roberts All dressed up in 1982 and I-Ten's Taking a cold look in 1983.Please insert the other 2 '80s albums immediately!!!!

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: April 25, 2008 at 22:30
Well i have no other choice than agree with all. Great Top Westcoast, one of the best albums of the genre. I think JOHN O´BANION style is very influenced by AIRPLAY, CHICAGO, AMBROSIA, TOTO and i can hear a lot of melodies in a very AIR SUPPLY vein. Smooth soft AOR with a very laidback style and beautiful songs like "She Doesn´t Mean a Thing" and "I Don´t Want To Loose Your Love". A classic!

From: aorfan700 Date: October 22, 2008 at 15:49
The debut is my fav. I don't like the song 'She doesn't Mean a thing to me' one bit. Not saying it's not good. I just really don't like it. Otherwise it's pretty much as good as his debut album.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 14, 2012 at 19:57
Pleasant Lite AOR/Westcoast ala David Roberts,Al Denson or Brent Lamb...good songs typical of the genre such as "Undercover Love" & "Our Love" that happens to be my faves of the record but in general lines the album offers nice easy listening songs...recommended...85/100
