Seg'n los samples parece un gran alb'm,voy a tratar de conseguirlo,bastantes teclados, se parece al gran Dan Lucas,creo que no me va a defraudar.

Very Good Melodic Hard Rock/AOR otra de las tantas rarezas desenterradas gracias a Retrospect Records una banda con estilo a gente como Bon Jovi o Outside Edge de esa epoca Legendaria la mayoria de cortes de muy buen gusto pero si hay una con la que me quedaria por la magia y encanto que tiene sin duda Hold Back 1000utside Edge otra de las miles de Bandas/Solistas que estuvieron perdidos en el tiempo.

Cierto lalorock, los samples dicen much'simo y s' que los teclados dan vida y el grupo mismo es la rehostia, a conseguirlo! y ya Sam CEO de Retrospect Records me ha comentado que tambien trabajan con Western Union asi que haber si empezamos con ISOM dentro del primer pedido. Haber si comentan tambien del DVD por favor, ya que ese show se ve apetecible y cuando tenga el CD/DVD en mis manos lo comentar' como debe ser. Saludos.

GOOD CD 80/100 vintage MELODIC HARD ROCK/AOR not a classic but worth buying !1st song is a little too much in the 80's keyboards vein but the others are much better especially the vocals ! Good chorus & hooks (hearts on fire/summer time/etc..)and vintage but decent prod. between STRYPER/SURGIN'/TYKETTO/BATON ROUGE You can find MARK ISOM replacing J.S.S. in the L.A. BAND MONSTER (exMALICE)in the excellent LONG ISLAND release 'through the eyes of the world'prod.By MAX NORMAN buy this one

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: January 22, 2008 at 11:26
El 'Danger Zone' ese comienzo de teclado me recuerda a una de las mejores canciones que existen 'I Can't Stand Losing You' de los Fate.

GOOD CD 80/100 As i already tell ,the album is very cool and worth checking ! But the bonus DVD is just a single camera shot,so don't expect a professional video !In this DVD there is some weak songs that aren't in the final CD ! So buy it if you like 80's AOR !a good time capsule !

From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 23, 2011 at 17:27
Yeah in agreement with the positive comments above ...interesting album with good songs,maybe Mark Isom's voice is not so outstanding but still does a more than incredible job IMHO...fave tracks are 1,4,5,6,7( ) & 11...87/100

surprise this american band don t play a typical and boring hard u s,that we find in all these unknow bands who never find a deal with a record company in the eighteies and find know on very small american label.for most of them it is easy to understand why they don t find a deal 20 years ago.here isom plays a o r with lot of keyboards(they sound great).tracks 1.2.5 and 10 are top class aor.the rest is basic the choruses are very simple.no inspiration we have the feeling to hear a very classic and average aor.ok with rick the singer is not bad but not terrific.this cd have is moments but i am sure die hard aor fans will love.the feeling i have when i listen this record is that isom is a small band who could do better with a real big great production.

Hearts On Fire !! one of the best songs in Hard Rock history !! Absolutely Killer song

From: juan carlos Date: July 29, 2013 at 23:58
I forgot comment this one. I own this CD, thanks to CEO Sam from Retrospect Records. Great Melodic HRock/AOR indeed. I love songs like "Summertime" for example, what a great AOR my God!! Plenty of addictive/catchy Keys!!! What about the ballad "Stay" huh? Just perfect!! My favorite tracks of course but there are more!! "Heart Break" "Your Eyes", the ballad "The Last Goodbye", "Hearts of Fire"(Great track indeed!) or "Love Affair" are my faves. Tracks as well, and closing perfectly the CD "Hold Back", can you ask for more? Just go & BUY this CD rctm!! 87/100
