yeah Great stuff AOR/Pop Rock/Hard Rock, en este material algo mas al estilo de esos fines de 80's y alterna los temas encontramos desde AOR otros cruzados con Hard Rock y otros Pop Rock en fin este hombre es todo un campeon igualito al Gran Bryan Adams dejando siempre en los 80's buenisimos trabajos Dream in Colour, Soul to Soul, Tear It All Down... un album bien compacto otro album ganador ah y falta aca agregar su Beautiful Feelings del 84 y el OST Hard To Hold del 84 9/10

This was his last album before taking an 11 year break and releasing the doubly brilliant Karma. Again the guy can do no wrong, great song after great song... Rock of Life is a fine lead off track with a similar feel to Billy Squier's The Stroke. Honeymoon in Beirut again another superbly catchy song, one thing that strikes me about RS is that he has a fantastic voice for this sort of material and he uses it to maximum effect. Again another RS album full of superbly crafted songs.

Another great release from Springfield. Fans of this will appreciate David Cassidy's solo cd from 1990 and Micheal O' Brien.

BRILLIANT 10/10.This is Best Rick's album for me typical AOR/Melodic HR.

From: Faust Date: September 17, 2006 at 16:02
Great disc !!! 'Soul To Soul' is a brilliant highlight. Rick Springfield is the Boss !!

From: Delbert Date: October 27, 2006 at 16:47
Rick's best AOR release (in my opinion) and features DAN HUFF and ALAN PASQUA from GIANT. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it.

From: juan carlos Date: August 31, 2007 at 4:03
Gran AOR, no lo mejor hecho por Rick Springfield pero muy bueno. Michael Morales lo habrá escuchado muchas veces, digo no. Poquísimos comentarios, "Honeymoon in Beirut" vaya temazo Mi Favorita que me recordó a Darryl Hall & Oates. "Woman" y "Tear It All Down" muy recomendables. Gente de lujo metida aquí. Recomendadísimo. 8.6/10

This was the last Rick Springfield album before he took a long break,musically talking...and well what can i say about it...SIMPLY GREAT STUFF!!!...my fave track is "Honeymoon In Beirut" followed by the another tender track "Soul To Soul" & "Hold On To Your Dream"...other "likable ones" are "Rock Of Life","Tear It All Down","Women"(nice),"Dream In Colour"...in general lines an album worth having it...thumbs up for Rick!!!...87/100
