|First comment???....listeners!!!..where are you???.Good album with perhaps some touches of modern rock but still pleasant to listen to.The album brings us good songs such as "Venus In Overdrive","Obliveon" & the highlight of the album that is undoubtebly "What's Victoria's Secret?".One curiousity in here....almost all the Bissonette family played here!!!...hahaha!!!.85/100

|I have followed Rick's stuff pretty much since 'Working Class Dog' was released way back and can't think of a bad album he has released. This one is no different and I will say that it is pretty much the best he has done since the brilliant 'Living In Oz' back in the 80's. What I really like about his more recent material is that he has modernised without losing the melody and has retained the knack for writing excellent, short, 3 minute rock songs that are still unmistakabley RS. 'What's Victoria's Secret' is a prime example, being reminiscent of 'Jessie Girl', but with a modern edge and sheen. There are some cracking tracks on here, Check out 'What's Victoria's Secret', 'One Passenger', the brilliant 'Oblivious'(a huge song given half the chance),'3 Warning Shots' and the beautiful closer 'Sister Sahara' for proof that the man still has the magic in bucketloads. Brilliant artist, brilliant album.

|I loved this when I first heard and although I still rate it high, it's not quite as good on repeated listens. Not as heavy as his last album, but this is good solid modern melodic rock almost like Lifehouse (their good songs) mixed with Yellowcard (though nowhere near as good as 'Paper Walls'). The first two songs are excellent (Love 'Victoria's Secret'!), the title track is horrible and the next two are also good - especially the great ballad, 'Oblivious'. 'Three warning shots' and 'Time Stand Still' are okay but the rest of the album is pretty useless. The last few songs, imo, are all pretty shit. Especially the last two ballads. I'd have cut it off at 10 tracks personally. Overall, though, this is definitely a good album. Recommended for any fan of the man.

|Brillianz fist part 1-6, with top tracks 1 + 3, the second half gets a bit lame, strange BEATLES influence.
