From: D. Chaudhuri Date: March 4, 2001 at 20:30
March 5, 2001 I have listened to the number 'Miles Away' only because in Calcutta, India; such albums are rarely available. The number is pretty good.

From: Mark Date: August 27, 2001 at 11:53
Don't like it as much as the first one, but still quality pop metal. Everyone's fave band to make fun of, but if you like the hair bands, these guys kick ass! Reb is one of the underrated guitar geniuses of the genre!

From: hard é vida Date: September 12, 2001 at 1:13
miles away is a wonderfull song, the way, this CD is a big shit!

From: Hardeaxão Date: January 24, 2002 at 15:37
Miles Away is one of the best songs ever! But about another songs... all poor sleaze glam songs...

From: WidoMakr Date: March 13, 2002 at 20:46
call me crazy but I thought most of the stuff from Winger was good...yeah kinda cheesy but so what.the babe in the Cant Get Enough video makes up for it ..BattleStations a tune from Bill and Teds movie is a great tune not heard/played often...Kips new stuff is TOTAL F'n CRAP! what in the name of every mother was/is he thinking??? and I hear he says Winger will never put another album out? Are u an idiot u a-wipe? another band to screw the fans over again...Quote the WidoMakr....never more

From: dokken6008 Date: March 21, 2002 at 12:21
Winger exemplified exactly what was wrong with the eighties to the EXTREME. Having said that, I truly do believe that EACH & EVERY band member is talented, from the drums to the vocals but the band's formula just usually doesn't work together. The overdone synths can get quite ridiculous at times, and Kip's bad songwriting & arrogant attitude shine right through the music. Reb Beach is undoubtedly the most gifted member of the band; he is a true virtuoso and was one of THE best of the genre.

From: Drag-in-Bones Date: April 25, 2002 at 9:22
'Under One Condition' was about Pauls Ex-girlfriend, one of 'Motley Crue's' Nasty Habits Chicks, 'Emi'. Not liking this album as much as the first but still a good album. A more refined and cohesive 'Winger'!

From: Desslar Date: April 25, 2002 at 22:29
The first 4 songs on the album are fantastic, but the album then turns to total crap with embarrassing stabs at neoclassical metal and even a bit of rap. Just turn it off after track 4.

From: TIM Date: May 6, 2002 at 23:25
Good call once again Desslar. After the first few tunes it took a nosedive. I've heard much worse though.

From: dokken6008 Date: May 20, 2002 at 7:58
'In The Heart Of The Young' fell straight on its ass after the opening notes of 'Can't Get Enuff' were through.

From: RichieRocker Date: June 1, 2002 at 12:05
I love Cant Get Enough, And I love Easy Come, Easy Go. Miles Away is good too. I agree with Dokken6008 when he says That REB BEACH is one of the top guitar players in the 80s genre.

From: Federico Date: June 3, 2002 at 14:19
Always good music from This band.ON Can't get enough AcDc meet Def Leppard. Easy come easy go is great too. Miles away is one of the most beautyful ballads ever written. But also songs like Rainbow in the rose and the title track have an interisting orchestration. Only great artist like Kip can write stuff like this.

From: Tony Date: June 22, 2002 at 19:51
Recently I've kinda rediscovered this cd and am just digging it. These guys are so musical and have so much more obvious chops & depth than they were ever given credit for. That being said I also don't feel too sorry for them because they were so upfront at the beginning on peddling Kip's pretty boy image. After the first 6 songs it sounds like they don't know whether to appeal to the 13 year olds or the 33 year olds. 'Miles Away' IS how a metal ballad should be done!!!

From: dokken6008 Date: June 27, 2002 at 4:37
'Miles Away' is a good ballad and all but don't you mean that that 'is how a POP ballad should be done'?? I'm serious, Winger was so freakin' poppy and fruity it's not even funny. Bands like this have NOTHNG to do with metal--nothing. Bands such as Iron Maiden, Manowar, or Judas Priest on the other hand have EVERYTHING to do with metal--true fuckin' heavy metal, baby. I just kind of get irritated by the excessive use of the term 'metal' that it has lost almost all meaning....

From: Drag-in-Bones Date: July 21, 2002 at 1:00
What does a band that jumped out of nowhere to sell 2 million records do for a encore? ('In The Heart Of The Young'), as I said Befor showcases a refined and cohesive 'Winger', but still blends the new and old, with a few different twists and turns along the way. In all areas of the CD there's been changes and maturing and progressing into new bounderies than those pushed on the first. I'am sure that those who give first listen might not be able to get into the record,cause....

From: Drag-in-Bones Date: July 21, 2002 at 1:06
cause fact is instante accessibility this CD is not but let this one rub off on you and I'am sure you will agree that 'Can't Get Enuff' and 'Easy Come Easy Go' are pretty accessible and that most of the CD is pretty intense on a lot of levels!!!

From: dokken6008 Date: July 21, 2002 at 6:57
Funny thing is, when I was at Wherehouse with my old man buying a couple of 'Rock Never Stops' tickets, the store was playing the entire freaking 'In The Heart Of The Young' cd! I said to one of the fool's working in the back 'So, you guys are playing WINGER? Out of all the 80s bands you could have chosen from.... Why not play something good like Dokken?'

From: dokken6008 Date: July 21, 2002 at 6:59
In other words, Winger sucks ass, Kip is a poser, the music is beyond cheesy and most of the songs are not in good taste. Out of ALL the 80's bands, and they decide to play one of the WORST. That's Wherehouse for ya....

From: b casarin MEX Date: October 9, 2002 at 22:07
what a great disc!!! 80/100

From: Baris Date: October 17, 2002 at 2:07
In my opinion the name of this band should be Beach or Taylor in stead of Winger. It's like as if while forming the band Kip has threatened his band mates with a gun: 'I'll be the leader!'. But shit! this antipathic thwarp isn't enough to be a frontman. He should stop singing and stay in the back-bass player position. Finally they had to find a new singer who sounds similar to Jani Lane or CJ Snare. If they had applied this formula believe me they would have been far respectable than this.

From: Andre Tekken Date: November 8, 2002 at 11:40
This is one of the most professional hard rock acts/records,I`ve ever listened to!Outstanding musicians,came from all halls of the music business to join this band!Kip,a former Broadway artist,Rod,former (Jazz Fusion) Dixie Dreggs,Paul,studio producer,Reb,session musician!This record is pretty elaborated at times reaching a neo-progressive status!!Melodic sometimes radio-friendly,anthemic,precise pomp rock!Awsome,very energetic and competent live!Unffortunely slayed by the Grunge plague!!

From: robert Date: November 9, 2002 at 8:20
Otra Joyita q nos dejo el Kip y Cia. Buenisimo pero me quedo con el 1º

From: The Fizzy One Date: November 9, 2002 at 16:04
I liked their first one a lot better. So much of this one sounds like they're trying either to relive the first album or get the hell away from it. There's an embarrassing rap break in 'Baptized by Fire,' and 'Miles Away' ain't one of my favorite ballads. The Fizz Picks: 'Can't Get Enuff,' 'Loosen Up,' 'Easy Come Easy Go,' 'The Day We'll Never Say,' and 'Little Dirty Blonde.' By the way, I thought 'Under One COndition' (to me the better of the ballads)' was about Kip and Rachel Hunter.

From: Altay Date: December 22, 2002 at 14:49
i think i'm really losin' time here tryin' to write about winger.these guys seriously kicked ass,and i see a huge amount of anti-kip boys around here.some called him gay for he's a ballet.but those idiot's should've known who's the fuckin' gay.some of you mentioned judas above.rob halford(fuckin' gay) can suck my .ick to write&sing better.we all know his solo stuff.besides being tough is not gettin' into stage with motorcycle.fuck steel...go on guys who against to winger.give me some rea

From: Altay Date: December 22, 2002 at 14:52
give me some real choices against winger.criticizin' is so damn easy,go out and do half of what they did then let's meet here again.

From: freddy de keyze Date: February 25, 2003 at 10:37
This is a very good CD. Much mature than their first and a song like 'Rainbow In The Rose' proves that ! All by all, recommended !!!

From: mutha trucka Date: April 5, 2003 at 3:46
why thank you for noticing. all the folks at the weight room also tell me i am a big mother fucker. mallorca's - you are a chocha. now we have both complimented each other. lets stick to the subject here - winger. what do you think kip was eating when he said 'i cant get enuff i'm still hungry'? i know - CHOCHA!!!

From: Gar Date: April 5, 2003 at 21:14
Actually I like this better than the debut. Sure this one's got a few lame tunes on it, but the good ones outnumber them. I wasn't a big WINGER fan(the majority of their debut is pretty run of the mill), so when I first heard this I wasn't expecting to like it. I was proven wrong. Not a perfect album, but good nonetheless.

Whether you were for or against, I think it's pretty much over and done with dude. Timing is everything...besides if I'm not mistaken you guys were with us on this one.

From: TheRipper Date: August 4, 2003 at 19:31
Although I probably like their Awesome '88 release a little better, this one in it's own right Rocks too! Have been listening to it lately, and it brings me right back. My recent interest in this is due to a VHS documentary tape I got of the making and recording of this album and the videos for it, just had to pull it out again! Let's hear it for Kip and the buys! Rock On!!!!!

From: Blue Tequila Date: August 4, 2003 at 21:13
Avoided this one like the plague when it first came out. 8 years later there was this stripper dancing to 'Loosen Up' at a bachelor party and I bought the cd the next day. Just amazing how good naked chicks can make a song sound! 2nd half of the disc sort of fizzles out unfortunately.

From: RR-Finland Date: August 29, 2003 at 7:17
Kip Winger looks like Val Kilmer on the back cover:-) Didn´t open open right away, when I boughted. After few listen, I started to like it better. Very good played songs, like Rainbow In The Rose and Miles Away makes worth it to buy this album.

From: cruise Date: September 18, 2003 at 20:07
This has to be one of the ultimate pop metal albums ever. If you like this kind of stuff you will love it. If you don't then you will hate everything about it. Personally, i love it. Cheesy sing along choruses, over produced to the point of perfection and four very talented musicians. I fully understand why some people hate this but i put this right up there with the best. Fantastic. 10/10

From: iamCANADIAN! Date: February 13, 2004 at 2:18
I read a review of this CD in 1990 by a rock critic who called this CD 'state-of-the-art car music'. Anybody agree or disagree?

From: Impaler Date: February 22, 2004 at 9:39
Great musicians stuck in a pop metal band. This one is slightly more mature than the first album. Still seems to have filler songs on it but at least they are listenable. 'Can't Get Enuff' kicks ass and 'Miles Away' is an incredible power-pop ballad. Worth the $3 it will cost you.

From: pozermaniac Date: April 30, 2004 at 13:00
An excellent album!Ladies & Gentelmen Winger ROCKS!KIP HAS AN INCREDIBLE VOICE!Reb knows how to blow your mind away with his guitar!Hes a guitar master!Morgenstein kicks ass!This one is a masterpiece!Great musicians & a great album!

From: AOR freaky Date: May 13, 2004 at 7:01
Indeed : this rocks, and even more important. The songs are very strong. This band is so underrated, but were very talented ! Not a childisch act, but a mature one ! Great stuff !

From: jack Date: May 25, 2004 at 3:53
Yer right,AOR freaky!like Dokken,winger is very underrated and does not get the recognition they deserve while bands like bon jovi,poison and def leppard gets everything. Not to say they do not deserve what they get but winger,in my mind can no doubt rock as good as any hard rock/metal band.Kips's voice is marvellous and no songs in this album is average or below...all of them are just perfect.Well done,winger!

From: Big Papa K Date: June 18, 2004 at 3:12
Terrible follow up to a decent debut. Even more over-produced than the last album. Includes some of my least favorite cliches of the genre (fake horns, singing over nothing but drums, fake sounding chorus vocals). 'Can't Get Enuff' is everything wrong with hair metal thrown into one song. The only track saving this is 'Miles Away'. 4/10

From: AOR freaky Date: June 18, 2004 at 6:34
Are you really serious Big Papa K ? This is by far the best and most melodic Winger release ! Rating : 8 at least, not 4 ! If all recent releases were as good as this one, I should be a happy man !

From: TIM (2) Date: June 18, 2004 at 12:09
I agree with AOR freaky, a massive improvement on the debut (especially lyrically), and 'Rainbow in the Rose' and the title-track are killer tracks.

From: TheRipper Date: June 18, 2004 at 23:59
Agreed, this is my favorite Winger release too. Which says something because I think between their debut, this, and 'Pull' that's not a bad set of 3 albums at all. All are good, but this one had something special, great singles as stated. 'Rainbow', 'Miles' along with their hits like 'Easy Come' (OK, horns were a tad out of place, but got used to), 'Can't Get Enough'; not to mention the back of this album is VERY strong too. I stand by this as my favorite still. Classic '90 HR cut from the boys.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 19, 2004 at 0:48
AOR freaky, you know what they say, everyone has their own opinions and I respect yours. I feel that 'Pull' is definately the bands strongest album.

From: Rycheage Date: June 26, 2004 at 16:21
As good as the debut was, this was better. 'Can't Get Enuff', 'Easy Come Easy Go' and 'Loosen Up' get the CD off on a good note. 'Rainbow In The Rose' and 'Under One Condition' highlight the band's ability to pen a tune. 'Miles Away' is a real tear jerker for anyone who has loved and lost. Very mature release and classy to boot.

From: Kristian Date: June 29, 2004 at 23:55
Great CD, a must have. Mature sounding hardrock with some touch of AOR. Miles Away is one of the best rock ballads ever.

From: Uusiolli Date: August 5, 2004 at 18:08
Better than their first. That's not much 5/10

From: iron-roses Date: August 6, 2004 at 14:15
A very good cd,not incredible,but very enyoyable.I love lot of the tracks,specially the last one and miles away.Come on kip,come to Spain,we love YOU!!!!!

From: jack Date: August 9, 2004 at 5:37
Big Papa K, i read some of your comments on winger and i can tell you are not a very big fan of winger. This album is just as good as under lock and key in my book. And along with europe's wings of tomorow,these three album are some of the best melodic metal album ever in my book. I'll take winger over bands like extreme,bad english and cheap trick anyday.

From: Rockhead Date: August 9, 2004 at 7:22
This album as good as Under Lock and Key-NO!!! I don't think so!!

From: AOR freaky Date: August 9, 2004 at 8:27
I repeat : this is a very good album ! On par with Dokken's Under Lock And Key ! But as good as Bad English ? ! NO WAY ! These guys are playing in another division ! And Europe ? Third rate in comparison with Dokken, Winger and certainly BAD ENGLISH !

From: TIM (2) Date: August 10, 2004 at 5:16
How can you compare this in the same sentence as Dokken anyway, it's chalk and cheese. I disagree with you completely Rockhead as I'd take this (and almost every other album released!) over anything by Dokken, but then I'm not a hard-rock fan at all so I wouldn't even attempt to compare them. Compare this with Warrant, Poison, Def Leppard, Bon Jovi etc and you'll be nearer the mark...

From: jack Date: August 10, 2004 at 6:32
With all due respect,TIM,comparing dokken is much more nearer than comparing to poison or warrant. Comparing dokken and winger is not chalk and cheese as both are straight ahead hair metal band who plays melodic hard rock music. Their music style are more similar than you think.both are extremely talented and great band that are so underrated. If you can't compare winger with dokken,then what can you compare them to?

From: TIM (2) Date: August 10, 2004 at 10:29
Jack, it depends how you define the bands. The term 'hair metal' has nothing really to do with the actual music... Europe are hardly metal? I compare Winger with early Warrant, early Danger Danger, Def Leppard etc. Some of this album is really AOR, take 'Rainbow in the Rose' or the title-track... For me, Slaughter are much more hard-rock and then Ratt and Dokken etc are heavier still. And certainly less melodic. But then I am a little biased as I can't stand Slaughter, Ratt or Dokken!

From: Metal T Date: August 10, 2004 at 11:18
Dokken are NOT a 'straight ahead hair metal band' !-That is complete nonsense.Anyone who knows anything about 'Dokken',will know that they were inspired heavilly by many of the european bands :Saxon, Scorpions,etc and having listened to their music for years,there is that obvious mystique in their material.While they might have used a tad of aqua-net back in the day,to call them a hair band' is beyond ignorant.Bands like 'Winger' are not my cup of tea.'Dokken' will reside as a Great Band .

From: jack Date: August 10, 2004 at 23:51
All i can say is that i like winger and dokken a lot whether they are are hair metal or not. But i think dokken's music is much straight forward hair metal compared to great white or tesla. the image is also! But anyway,i think both are really great and talented band.

From: Geoff Date: August 17, 2004 at 2:11
I probably prefer this one to the debut, though only marginally. I think the first two are on par with each other only to be later blown away by the amazing 'Pull'. As for this one, like everyone else I love 'Miles away'. Also 'Easy come', 'Rainbow' and 'Under one condition' (especially the verses). Actually, now that I look at it I probably prefer the debut for consistency. Still, two well-played and great commercial hard rock releases.

From: BWH'Indonesia' Date: September 8, 2004 at 6:00
Drag N Bones, for as long as I know, Under One Condition was dedicated to Kip's ex-girlfriend Rachel Hunter, a professional model who later became Rod Stewart's wife. Most of all, this is a great album. For those who hate AOR music, hate keyboards, hate synth, and always ridiculously think that a goodlooking/pretty face has something to do with music, well.. you'd better not listen to this album and not make any comments. Just find the other site of your own dream bands.

From: Wotty Date: September 8, 2004 at 6:20
To BWH.That was a well put case for Winger and AOR in general.Concerning the site,someone is bound to post a message saying...THIS IS HEAVY HARMONIES...with the emphasis on Heavy...

From: Hairball John Date: November 26, 2004 at 21:24
Winger progressed nicely as this is better than the debut but not as good as the next release 'Pull'. Check out the audio interview with Reb Beach that we conducted early 2004. He is a great guy and shares a hysterical story on how Beavis and Butthead destroyed their career. Listen to The Hairball John Radio show every week at for many of the lost classics and new kick ass tunes. The Hairball John Radio Show the past is back to kick your ass!

i used to have this cd, i bought it 4 yrs. ago and i sold it for their S/t cd from 1988. i remember listening to Winger-In The Heart of The Young and this cd was pretty good! i don't remember some of the songs except for the good rockin ones. i prefer thier 1st cd over their 2nd. i don't mind a few songs off their Pull cd either. The 1st 2 Winger cds are good!

From: star Date: September 7, 2005 at 10:37
excelente disco como lo mencionan muy similar al primero, con muy buenas rolas, lo he visto en el chopo de la cd de mexico

From: ANR Date: March 22, 2007 at 7:40
Very exacting album with great musicians of course. There are typical AOR songs e.g. 'Easy Come Easy Go' (my all time favorite!), 'Can't Get Enough' and progressive tracks e.g. 'Rainbow in the Rose', 'In the Heart of the Young'... and a few fillers. So my rating goes 8/10

From: Rambo Rockerman Date: January 20, 2008 at 12:53
This is another fine record worth getting.

From: metalmastermusic Date: July 27, 2008 at 17:03
My favorite of all of their releases to date. Fave song is Easy Come, Easy Go. No fillers here, is it cheese metal YES !! But it is good cheese metal. The 80's and 90's were full of cheese metal and it made MTV a blockbuster (and some of the bands very rich as well). This is the one to have of Wingers if you are going to have one. 87/100

From: Wachen Date: September 14, 2008 at 12:16
It's sad that this top class act got shoved in the dirt when everyone decided to make fun of the hair bands. I could think of 1000 bands that are more immature and cheesy than these guys, Warrant, Poison etc.. Kip Winger is musical genius and every Winger CD is awesome, this and "IV" being their magnum opuses! Also, Kip's solo stuff outdoes this, but that's a different story

From: 7Sinner Date: December 2, 2008 at 14:08
I was never a huge Winger fan back in the day when these guys were all over MTV......but after 15 years away from this release I have to say that it is excellent and their best IMO....

From: lalo r.o.c.k. Date: December 20, 2008 at 15:05
Great album,sharp edged guitars from the axe Reb Beach,and very good songs like Loosen Up,Easy come Easy Go,Rainbow in the rose,Myles away(amazing power ballad),all the songs have the original style from Winger,classic,9/10.

From: hair metal again Date: November 4, 2009 at 9:17

Excellent album perhaps with timeless songs..."Rainbow In The Rose","Miles Away"(this one has become their long time classic),"Under One Condition"(love this ballad!)...these songs for some people could be the chessy ones but wait! have here great hard rocking songs too..."Can't Get Enuff","Baptized By Fire"(with that amazing guitar ntro courtesy of Mr Beach)"You Are The Saint,I Am The Sinner"(this one will hook you up)...second release and following somehow the success of their first album..93/100

It has one of the greatest AOR ballads of all time - 'Miles Away.' That's up there with 'Alone' and 'Will You Be There' by Heart and 'Dead Man's Shoes' by FM! f***ing awesome!

Really good follow up to an awesome debut! Like the above said, Miles Away is in my top 8 power ballads. Under One Condition is really a good ballad as well. The rockers are great- Easy Come Easy Go, Can't Get Enough, Loosen Up, You Are The Saint, & Baptized By Fire. I recommend.

I absolutely loved the debut as a kid, and bought this the week it came out in the summer of 1990. And even though it has some good songs, I didn't feel it lived up to the first album, then or now. At this point, Kip Winger was already regretting some of the cheesy things they'd done, like his shirtless prancing and (even then) vaguely creepy odes to statutory rape. He desperately wanted to be taken seriously, and so, went a little overboard, always yammering on in interviews about classical music, coming off like a pretentious dick. Meanwhile, his band's sopomore effort wasn't all that different from the debut. The first four tracks could've been leftovers from the self-titled, and the main difference thereafter is the way Reb Beach's guitar-playing gets a little too "busy" and noodly for the songs, the band trying to get all proggy on "Rainbow In The Rose and the title track. Mainly though, the songs just aren't as memorable.

At the same time, you probably haven't heard these songs a billion times like you have "Madalaine" and "Seventeen" and "Headed For A Heartbreak," so an occasional listen is pretty enjoyable. Overall, though, I gave it a 68.

Definitely not as good as the first disc but a few stand outs still exist. The first four tracks especially Can't Get Enuff and Miles Away are superb with Under One Condition being the other great ballad and In The Day We'll Never See having great rhythm and vocals. Baptized by fire is another good melodic rocker and Rainbow in the Rose has some superb virtuosity from Reb Beach but I feel the disc ends weakly with In The Heart of The Young. A great stand alone disc but lacks the number of meaty hooks and catchy vocals of the first one.

It was the first Winger's album I've heard - good point to start as I like it years later. All songs are good, no fillers.

Turns out "Can't Get Enuff" and "Easy Come, Easy Go," the two songs that are most reminiscent of the debut, were written at the last minute, both in a single day, because Beau Hill or somebody "didn't hear a single." (This is the identical scenario that gave us "Cherry Pie.") On a personal note, by 1990, I was beginning to sneak looks at my sister's Seventeen magazines, because unlike Boys' Life, there would be articles about music and sex, two topics about which I was insatiably curious. Even at that age, I was able to see that Kip was doing in "Can't Get Enuff" EXACTLY what teenage girls were being warned about. I guess if I were ten years old today, I'd be called a "simp," but fuck it.

Miles Away is one of the few ballads I once listened to for few hours without taking any break. Of course the whole cd is just great.
