Excellent product from first rate musicians. Best tracks are "Missing You" and the phenomenal version of the classic "Whiter Shade Of Pale." Shame these guys didn't work together on another project. A classic!

From: Jennifer Date: April 24, 2001 at 12:59
This is one of my faves. Hagar sounded great and Schon kicked ass. Shrieve and Aaronson combined with Neal and Sammy to form a dynamite group. HSAS is a classic.

From: Evan Daniels Date: April 26, 2001 at 23:18
Bloody fine work! Totally incredible music and a hot super group.

From: Gary Date: April 29, 2001 at 10:37
Schon was killer on this one! It's the best Hagar ever sounded and this one is a classic!

From: Tim Date: May 1, 2001 at 11:30
IT ROCKS!

From: Billy Date: May 18, 2001 at 13:51
Schon was HOT as fire on this one!! I love Hagar's voice on this sucker too...it's some of the best singing he has ever done. I wish these guys would do another 'side' project like this because this album is a classic from classic musicians. THANK YOU HSAS FOR THIS MUSIC!!!!!!

From: RockDude Date: May 22, 2001 at 11:19
ONE FINE CD!!!!!! Man I wish they had done another one but I suppose having only one makes them even more 'legendary.' "Whiter Shade Of Pale" and "Missing You" are incredible!! "My Home Town" Smokes!! AWESOME!!

From: Ray Date: June 2, 2001 at 10:58
One of the best from the 80's! Often overlooked and forgotten, this one stands up against others just fine. Check it out yourself and you'll hear how great it is.

From: nev Date: June 11, 2001 at 3:54
even here in the down under land this album is shit hot... take note of all the other comments..their not wrong.. AWESOME stuff

From: Mark Date: February 27, 2002 at 23:23
If you like this, Sammy is doing another side project with Neal Schon, Dean Castranova (he was in Hardline with Neal), Michael Anthony, and possibly Slash. Check out melodicrock.com for news.

From: Andre Tekken Date: August 2, 2002 at 10:35
One of the best musicians"get toghether"ever!Samy,before Van Halen,Neil Schon from Journey and Kenny from Billy Idol!We can see musicaly speaking in this record something of a harder rocki'n Journey,and plain Haggar type of input that we can see that changed Van Halen!It isn't aor and yet the more traditional hard rock you've ever seen!Sammy's singing is just great!My favourite tunes:Missing You,the"strange"Animation and the awsome "twilight"He Will Understand!99/10!!It really ROCKS!!!!!!

From: DFD Date: May 31, 2003 at 2:13
Best 80's band!

From: Desslar Date: June 4, 2003 at 9:25
Pretty average overall. I did enjoy the Procol Harum cover. That song is great.

From: razor2467 Date: June 21, 2003 at 22:32
AWESOME CD!!!!! This cd STILL holds up today, Sammy's singing is fantastic on this, and Schon is just f**king rippin' hot spots: Whiter Shade of Pale, My Hometown, Missing You....hell, the whole disc!!!

From: Chad Date: August 7, 2003 at 22:17
One of the greatest hard rock albums EVER! Hagar's voice and Schon's guitar are flawlessly melodic. The 'Planet Us' (Sammy Hagar, Neil Schon, Michael Anthony, Dean Castranova) release can not come fast enough!

From: Brian Mc Date: October 1, 2003 at 18:26
The radio friendly "Whiter Shade" is the absolute weak link on this collection. HSAS were in a zone when this went down. It couldn't have been hotter music if these guys tried. Do any remember HSAS at the Cow Palace on MTV? We need to declare this group a national treasure! Anybody who down plays this one either has no sence of rock & roll OR needs an enema full of common sence. HSAS were men among boys, 1%'ers of the trade. Study the history of these guys. Impressive! Where's #2?

From: Coldpepper Date: October 13, 2003 at 19:12
Happy Birthday Sammy! HSAS is awesome. Nothing today is this good.

From: Harvey Date: November 26, 2003 at 19:57
The sound of rich rock stars dicking about on their days off! Love Van Hagar and Journey but this? Na.

From: Daniel James Date: January 7, 2004 at 11:51
I loved it when it came out, and still love it today. Being a guitar player, this album made Schon a big influence on me, Rock-n-Roll!!

From: El Jefe Date: January 23, 2004 at 5:09
Hard to believe, but this was recorded live and released with the crowd noise removed. It sounds just as great today as it did 20 years ago. I love it when the bass joins in on "My Home Town." A classic!

From: drummerfish Date: February 16, 2004 at 5:29
a great all star band,released around the same time cd's came onto the market.i was surprised to find it on cd a few years ago and swooped it right up.if you can find it,get it.sounds great to this day.by the way,kenny was also in joan jett's band,and michael was in santana.who know he could rock? i know it was recorded live,but where? i believe it was a l.a. club.anyone know?

From: ALEXX GLAM Date: April 27, 2004 at 13:10
TOP OF THE ROCK,MISSING YOU,HE WILL UNDERSTEND AND MY HOME TOWN ARE GOOD SONGS AND THE COVER OF WHITER SHADE OF PALE ROCKS BUT ANIMATION,VALLEYOF THE KINGS AND GIZA ARE SO BORING SO FOR ME ITS AN OK ALBUM BUT NOT GREAT

From: BIG MIG PERU Date: May 3, 2004 at 16:48
BUEN CD , UNA SUPER BANDA Y HERMOSO COVER DEL TEMA DE PROCOL HARUM " WHITER SHADE OF PALE " Y BUEN TEMA " MISSING YOU " , ME AGRADA MUCHO LA VOZ DE SAMMY HAGAR EN ESTE CD , LASTIMA KE NO SIGUIERA MAS... SALUDOS PA' TODOS LOS ROCKEROS DE PARTE MIA. SI KIERES ESCRIBEME AL , FLAMINGPIE97@HOTMAIL.COM. KE VIVA LOS FABULOSOS '80s...

From: Metalhead Date: December 6, 2004 at 13:38
Like EVH, Schon can play fast and still convey emotions. On this album, he was really let loosed unlike in his Journey albums with Steve Perry.

From: Lennie Date: April 13, 2005 at 14:19
This is shit hot! Hagar and Schon is a match made in heaven and the live recording (less crowd noise) gives it a real raw feel. 'Top of the Rock' and 'Hot and Dirty' see Schon flying...fantastic stuff.

From: danoq Date: August 31, 2005 at 23:05
WOW!!!!! After 20+ years I still listen to this record religiously. If you don't have it, get it, it is a real masterpiece. Try and find the live show that MTV aired. It really smokes. It was taped here in San Jose and Neal was just on Fire. (no pun) The cover of Whiter Shade of Pale is still on the radio in the Bay area regularly. That by far is the standard in which all remakes will always be measured. I think this is the best Sammy has EVER sounded. His vocal range is just amazing on this. A+

From: victordeaor Date: September 14, 2005 at 8:17
Joder....!! Esta es una autentica formación de lujo (los cuatro) pero que en un disco se unan nada menos que Sammy Hagar y Neal Schon, ya se sale de madre...Disco recomendadisimo. La version de los Procul Harum... bestial! Un saludo

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: February 17, 2006 at 11:02
Very Good hard Rock album, claro que si un buenisimo disco de Hard Rock y como no va a serlo con esos integrantes y por momentos rozando el AOR como en Missing You un tremendo temazo un disco para amantes del buen Hard Rock saludos del Ave Fenix. 8/10.

From: Metzi Date: August 9, 2007 at 4:02
It kicks ass real hard. I consider it a hrd rock gem!

From: metalmastermusic Date: September 5, 2008 at 15:44
This is one excellent release with one killer lineup. Great riffs , solid vox . Not much more to add to the comments above. Get this one. 92/100

From: rick kerch vzla Date: November 1, 2010 at 15:38
Excellent combo with two mega stars!!!(Hagar & Schon)...wonderful tracks such as "Top Of the Rock" a song that...rocks!!!,"Missing You" with that AOR flavour definetely is the best song of the album IMHO,"Valley Of The Kings" solid,"Whiter Shade Of Pale" nice and moody cover of the famous Procol Harum song,"Hot And Dirty" is a typical song that you can find at any Sammy Hagar's solo efforts ,"He Will Understand" a highlight & "My Home Town" ends the album in the same way it started..rocking!!!!..Neal Schon giving us the "school" of how to play guitar and the other 2 guys (Aaronson,a bass player and a member of Billy Idol band at that stage and Shrieve,a talented drummer)...in general lines,this album is worth having it!!!.91/100

From: edwithmj Date: June 4, 2013 at 10:36
Unfortunately, follow up work never happened as surely this is a very decent album. The cover of Procol Harum works very well, Missing You is a great ballad and Animation is the best rocker off this one. Schon and Hagar shine on this one.
